The thought in making this trade was that Lloyd Cushenberry of LSU would be available but he went three picks earlier to the Baltimore Ravens. The Broncos instead settle for Tyler Biadasz, a fine alternative.
The Broncos can use help at the center position after losing Connor McGovern to free agency. Patrick Morris, an inexperienced player who was undrafted in 2018, is the only natural center on the roster.
Biadasz would, at the very least, push Morris for the starting role on the team. At best, he could be a solid, consistent contributor for the next decade.
Biadasz has solid hands and enough power to win at the point of attack. He comes from Wisconsin which had one of the nation’s most potent rushing attacks and the idea of him helping to open holes for Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay is enticing.
He does display average quickness and he does show some faults in his technique, but a great offensive line coach such as Mike Munchak would be able to help coach that up.
Biadasz is far from a can’t-miss prospect, but he would give the team much more confidence at the center position going into the season. If the Broncos were to land him, he would likely beat out Morris for the starting spot and have the chance to be the team’s center for some time to come.
