In this edition of Brick, Mortar and Scrap, we take a look at the offensive line and see who can contribute to the Broncos in 2020.

Football is a game of inches, or so they say. If any position group takes that saying literally, it would be the offensive line. The big guys up front live and die by the ground they give up on each play.  No group has to play with such a combination of intelligence and toughness like a lineman has to.

A receiver can be a few inches off of their initial route and still make a play. Running backs can miss an initial cut and still make a play. Offensive lineman, on the other hand, can't afford to miss their assignment on any play.

For that reason, I've always been a believer in building a team around the trenches and ensuring that you have strong line play.
