Round Two: DE Adam Gotsis

Grade: C-

If there is any area of criticism of Elway in his tenure as General Manager it will be from his second round choices. Defensive lineman Adam Gotsis continues with the second round questions. When Gotsis was drafted out of Georgia Tech it was presumed he would be a project and so far that’s what he has looked like. So far he has only accounted for four tackles and hasn’t made his impression known.

The reason for the low grade isn’t based off of the belief he will be a bust, but more of the fact that second round picks are typically expected to play a big role in their rookie year. It is unknown if the ACL injury suffered last year has prevented his progression, but we won’t be able to see his progression until at least next off-season.

Gotsis will continue to see sparing time in his rookie year, however players like Jared Crick and Billy Winn at this point are better players.
