Round 6, No. 219 overall: Tommy Doyle, OT, Miami (Ohio)
The Broncos are apparently confident in what they have in Ja’Wuan James this coming season, but the team should still draft an offensive tackle at some point.
Tommy Doyle was a three-year starter at Miami (Ohio) and gained experience at both right and left tackle. He is a solid run blocker and is extremely strong at the point of attack. However, he will need to develop his pass-blocking skills and would be a project for whichever team drafts him.
He has a nice upside though and could be coached into a rotational tackle capable of making spot starts in the league.
With James, the Broncos have to be careful. He is injury prone and has only played in three total games over the last two seasons. The Broncos still have Calvin Anderson and Quinn Bailey on the roster as backup tackles, but adding another one here in this spot makes a lot of sense.
Doyle could push for a spot on the main roster as a rookie and if not, he could be stashed on the practice squad with hopes of developing into a guy who could dress and be ready to go every Sunday.
