Here in the middle of the third round, the Broncos get their starting left tackle. I’m not exactly sure if Elway would be willing to wait this long, if he would trade for a veteran, or if perhaps a combination of both could happen.
What I think I know are two things:
1. The Broncos’ starting left tackle is not yet on the roster
2. Garcia is one of the best pass protectors in this year’s draft
What I have seen from Garcia in pass protection is remarkable. It’s a wonder to me he’s able to move like that as a 300 pound man. The big question with Garcia moving to the next level is whether he can adapt as a run blocker. He will get caught lunging at times and is still raw in his technique.
Would Garcia perhaps be one of the guys the Broncos believe can be a day one starter at the next level? I’m not certain, but they might get to find out.
