John Leglue (rookie, Tulane)
The level of competition should be considered here, but Broncos UDFA John Leglue didn’t allow a sack his final year at Tulane, and allowed just eight hurries on the quarterback in general.
The 6-foot-7, 310-pound right tackle has a chance — like the other UDFAs on the OL — to make an impression and stick this year.
Quinn Bailey (rookie, Arizona State)
The Broncos drafted Arizona State guard Sam Jones last year, and they picked up one of his former teammates there as an undrafted player this year.
Quinn Bailey earned strong marks for his pass protection at Arizona State, but didn’t test well athletically in the pre-draft season and likely went undrafted because of those poor numbers.
Still, he has the height and bulk to stick if he can find a way to match speed and power off the edge. Preseason play will tell us a lot about these UDFA tackles.
Nathan Jacobson (rookie, UNLV)
Although Jacobson could get looks all over the offensive line (he even mentioned they may try him at center) he was a tackle in college and could get his first opportunity there.
Jacobson is a great athlete for the position, and part of that comes from his light frame. He’s 6-foot-5, 280 pounds, and will need to add some bulk in order to hold up against NFL competition.
But he can get out in space.
Jake Rodgers (age 27)
The Broncos signed Rodgers after a tryout session, and he has some intriguing history with the coaching staff here.
He’s been part of the Pittsburgh Steelers (with OL coach Mike Munchak) three separate times. He was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2015 when Rich Scangarello was a quality control coach/OL for Kyle Shanahan.
With a spot up for grabs, we’ll see what this guy can do as a swing player.
