Denver Broncos 2021 draft prospect: Samuel Cosmi, OT Texas

The Denver Broncos should consider every avenue to acquire talent. This means potentially multiple first-round picks or trade back situations.

When new GM George Paton was with Minnesota Vikings there were four times they had multiple first-rounders. If Denver does have a few first rounders then another tackle can come to the fold. Samuel Cosmi from Texas might be the guy.

One strong area we see through the Big 12 vines is versatility. Denver Broncos guard Dalton Risner played at Kansas State where he shined at multiple spots on the offensive line. Cosmi is the same version except at the tackle position. He started 34 of 35 games at Texas.

There is durability there and strong flexibility to allow him to play right tackle. He has familiarity with the position. This is not a new area for him to learn. Cosmi is very technically sound in his blocking with above-average athleticism. He does every phase well. Despite being lean he can provide a lot of sturdiness to both pass and run blocking. It would be wise for him to add some weight if he is going to be added to Munchak’s system.

Cosmi struggles some in pass protection due to his weight, but he makes up for it with his length. He has really good height and length to make up for his deficiencies there.

Cosmi also has the athleticism to where can be a human shield in pass pro and in the run game. In the run game, his length allows him to create run lanes for the backs and makes him decent in shielding himself from athletic edge rushers.

If he adds needed weight while keeping the athletic movement, he might be an elite tackle at the next level.
