Denver Broncos: What players would team protect from expansion team?
Left Tackle Garett Bolles
The Garett Bolles pick is easy because of the jump he made during the 2020 season under offensive line coach Mike Munchak. While Bolles is entering his fifth season and already 29-years old, it is hard to find a franchise left tackle and keep him around for a long period of time.
That’s what the Broncos did, though. After several years of struggles, Bolles finally made up for it with his much-improved play.
Much of an offensive line’s struggles can be blamed on the quarterback play, but even though a lot of scrutiny is on Drew Lock, the Broncos fared a little bit worse in the sacks-allowed department with Joe Flacco under center.
Bolles has become a leader after facing adversity to begin his career. Letting go of the team’s best offensive lineman would be a mistake.
Not to mention that the team already signed him to a massive contract extension that would keep him around for the foreseeable future.
The Broncos are not in a position to let go of some of their offensive linemen. Bolles would be the pick here.
