Improvement on the offensive line was the most underrated and needed position the Broncos addressed during free agency; however, the team will continue to add depth at the position during the NFL Draft.
The Broncos are interested in Swedish native, David Hedelin who hails from the University of Purdue.
Hedelin arrived at Purdue with raw talent sitting out the first three games, but when on the field showed quickness to set the edge, but with inconsistencies. That must change if he is drafted by the Broncos to compete against the others on the roster.
Hedelin showed improvement from 2014 to 2015 in reacting to the edge and stopping the rush, but he will need to show more development if drafted by the Broncos. Not expected to be in the first four rounds of the draft, Hedelin could see his stock rise to the fifth. The B1G Conference has traditionally been one of the strongest in offensive linemen talent and production.
Despite a possible addition of Hedelin, he is likely to compete for a roster spot with Michael Schofield and Ty Sambrailo for a promotion over both of them.
