Calvin Anderson, offensive tackle depth
A couple of years ago, Calvin Anderson was a coveted grad transfer from Rice who ended up playing one season of ball at Texas and doing a decent job.
He was considered a top undrafted free agent option in the 2019 rookie class and after signing initially with the Patriots after the draft, then getting claimed by the New York Jets, the Broncos finally pounced and brought Anderson on October 1, poaching him off the Jets’ practice squad.
Anderson was basically redshirted by the Broncos this past year, again not getting any action despite the Broncos struggling with depth at the right tackle position all season.
With that said, this is clearly a player the front office and coaching staff believe in. Why else do you roster a guy with basically no intent to put him in the game year one?
With Mike Munchak coaching up the offensive line, it’s easy to get excited about projecting talent on the offensive line.
I still feel the Broncos should draft a tackle to push guys like Anderson and even the starters Garett Bolles and Ja’Wuan James, but Anderson is a young player who has a chance to factor into the team’s depth for 2020.
