Dalton Risner drafted by Denver Broncos with the 41st Overall Pick
The Denver Broncos have an early second round pick on day two of the draft. With it, the Broncos selected Dalton Risner from Kansas State.
As long as there are no trades for the Denver Broncos on day two, the team will have at least three selections. Two of them will come in the second round due to the trade on Thursday with the Pittsburgh Steelers. With their 41st pick, the Denver Broncos decided to address the offensive line and drafted Dalton Risner.
There has been plenty of buzz about the Denver Broncos connection to Dalton Risner. The Wildcat offensive lineman attended high school in Wiggins, Colorado. The hometown kid will get the chance to play for the Mile High City.
This selection was an absolute need for the Denver Broncos. Risner helps fill the offensive tackle position on the right side of the field. And it helps since the right side of the field has been an issue for a while now, even during the Super Bowl 50 season.
But now, the Denver Broncos get a stud in Dalton Risner. Hopefully this will help with the offensive line issues for a while. Joe Flacco will certainly like it having a player of Risner’s capabilities.
Speaking of which, I believe that Dalton Risner could be a starter right away for the Denver Broncos. He will likely be placed on the right guard position with Ju’Wuan James filling in at right tackle for the Broncos.
Having a solid right tackle to learn from will benefit Risner in such a huge way. I am really looking forward to this offensive line this year.
The only position that could be addressed on the line is the center position. Unless the team believes in Connor McGovern, then the line is set. But you can never tell with John Elway.
Welcome to Denver Dalton Risner!
