With the final pick of the draft for the Broncos, I believe they will use it to add depth to the offensive line. While the team lost Matt Paradis in free agency, the Broncos expect Connor McGovern to step up and become the team’s new center.

Next. Remaining Denver Broncos picks after Day Two. dark

Keegan Render would be a solid backup to McGovern in case anything were to happen. I could also see the Broncos coaching staff move him around the line too if he has a better fit elsewhere.

A team captain and 2018 third team All-Big Ten, he has some solid qualities. He did start all 13 games last season at the center position. His abilities to block has helped the Iowa Hawkeyes with their running offense, which spells good news for Phillip Lindsay.

Render could be a decent player for the Broncos as long as he stays healthy.
