Option Two: Connor McGovern
When Matt Paradis went down this past season with a fractured fibula, there was some line movement to be made. McGovern was placed as the center. And for the last half of the season, he was not bad at all.
It might take some getting used to, but it could very well happen that John Elway liked what he saw with McGovern this season to be confident in him going into the 2019 season. He allowed 1.5 sacks during the 2018 season and had four accepted holding calls on him. Compare that to Garett Bolles, who seemed to be called for holding every other series or key drive.
If this is the route that the Denver Broncos decide to take, I am all for it. As long as the team can build around him. A permanent move from guard to center could end up benefiting him in the long run.
Denver might also use a dose of Sam Jones, the team’s sixth round pick from last season. He was solemnly used in 2018, but the team could utilize him.
