Denver Broncos: Defensive line 2018 position preview
Adam Gotsis, age 25
Adam Gotsis was arrested and charged with rape in March over an incident that allegedly occurred in 2013, which he and his attorney immediately refuted as false.
Gotsis had just come off of a breakout season with the Broncos, establishing himself as a very good run defending defensive end and showing flashes of his pass rush potential.
Hopefully, Gotsis is innocent and what he’s been accused of never happened.
In terms of his football abilities, it was a slow rookie season in 2016 for Gotsis, who was the most shocking pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Broncos came way out of left field with the Gotsis selection, but two years in, it looks like they made a very wise selection in terms of his football abilities.
Gotsis is 6-foot-4, 290-plus pounds with very little bad weight, and he showed vastly improved technique against the run, earning a starting job with the Broncos.
He had 41 tackles, two sacks, and four batted passes last season and was tops among Broncos defensive linemen with 25 run stops.
