Denver Broncos: Top performers through the first quarter of 2019
Dalton Risner, LG
Here’s a friendly reminder for everyone that Dalton Risner was the 10th offensive lineman selected in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The rookie out of Kansas State had one of the best and most efficient pass blocking grades in all of college football over the last three seasons, and was known for his physicality and toughness in the running game.
Through four games with the Broncos, he has not disappointed.
Risner has not gotten it all right, but he’s already playing like a veteran for the Broncos which is exactly the kind of stability this team needed on the offensive line.
Risner has provided the Broncos with a cornerstone piece to build around moving forward.
We’ve been chronicling his biggest blocks of the season over at The Knights of DEN, but one of the plays Risner will forever be remembered by in Denver is his unbelievable effort on this fourth-down Phillip Lindsay touchdown.
