3. Dillon Radunz for Demar Dotson/Elijah Wilkinson
The Broncos’ two most significant contributors at the right tackle position really over the last two seasons have been Elijah Wilkinson and veteran Demar Dotson.
With both projected to hit unrestricted free agency in 2021, the Broncos will need to bring in some form of reinforcements through the 2021 NFL Draft and possibly free agency.
Lucky for the Broncos, the 2021 NFL draft class looks absolutely excellent on the offensive line, and specifically, there are a plethora of options at the offensive tackle position.
In my most recent Broncos mock draft, I had them using a second-round pick on North Dakota State’s Dillon Radunz, who could probably be a day-one starter if the team needed him to be.
While you would love to see a player like Radunz come to Denver and be the long-term right tackle for the future, I would be lying if I said it was the only option that was likeable in this draft class.
Players like Northern Iowa’s Spencer Brown, Michigan’s Jalen Mayfield, Stanford’s Walker Little, Ole Miss’ Royce Newman, or Notre Dame’s Robert Hainsey are all options the Broncos could consider here.
A few of these guys, including Radunz, probably have some guard/tackle versatility at the next level as well, which could end up being huge if you’re replacing both Wilkinson (a swing guard/tackle) as well as Dotson.
