The Denver Broncos used their first of two picks in the fifth round to select Connor McGovern from Missouri University.
The Denver Broncos address their need on the offensive line by drafting Connor McGovern from Missouri University. Here are some of his measurable.
He measures in at six feet, four inches. Weighs in at 306 pounds. He has great arm lengths and hands, measuring in at 32 and 7/8th and 10 3/4th respectfully. Some call him the strongest players in college football. Mel Kiper ranks him as the fifth ranked offensive guard in the draft.
Oh, and have I mentioned that he has squatted 690 pounds! All I have to say to that is whoa!
His measures make him a strong option on the interior of the offensive line. I am a fan of this pick. Lance Zierlien had some interesting things to say about this pick in his draft profile.
Three year starter who has played guard and both tackle spots. While he has the frame and power of a guard, there are some teams who could give him a shot at right tackle first. Has some work to do in pass protection, but shows potential to be a starter in the league.
I like what he has to say. Remember that Max Garcia was a fourth round pick and should start for the Broncos this year. And saying that does not surprise me.
The Broncos have had a lot of success when it comes to drafting offensive linemen in the later rounds. So, I have no doubt that McGovern will have some success in the NFL with the Denver Broncos.
This could also be quite a steal for the Broncos. McGovern was set to go as early as the third round. The Broncos sure know how to find some talent.
