Grading the 2019 Broncos offensive linemen
Offensive line was a struggle for the Denver Broncos in 2019. Were there any bright spots at least? I take a look at the offensive linemen and grade them.
The most important part for any team on offense is to protect the quarterback. I am no expert, but allowing 41 sacks on the quarterback for the Denver Broncos is not a good number. Of course, those numbers have been spread out among the three quarterbacks that were under center in 2019, but it still is quite a bit.
From what I observed throughout the season, there was only one player that stood out to me on that line. One who did okay, but seeing as I did not hear his name much I assume all went well. Two of them battled injuries, and one was plagued with penalties until the end of the season.
There is no doubt that this unit will be improved during the offseason. The big question is which players could stay and which could go? I believe the grades that I give these players can be an indication. So, let us take a look.
