Denver Broncos 53-man roster prediction ahead of first preseason game
Offensive Line: 9 (28/53)
- Garett Bolles
- Dalton Risner
- Lloyd Cushenberry
- Graham Glasgow
- Bobby Massie
- Calvin Anderson
- Netane Muti
- Quinn Meinerz
- Brett Jones
The offensive line unit for the Denver Broncos is really taking shape.
It seems clear right now that the team will keep nine linemen, especially with the track record of Brett Jones and the timing of his addition to the team.
Quinn Meinerz came to Denver as a self-taught center and may be more of a project there than originally anticipated despite his elite athletic talents.
Netane Muti has really taken a step forward this offseason and could be a starter at some point this season, but almost certainly by 2022.
Calvin Anderson and Bobby Massie have been splitting the top reps at right tackle as the team seeks a long-term solution at that position. Preseason games will be critical there, but it seems that both of those players have clearly surpassed veteran Cameron Fleming, who will likely be a roster cut before the season barring an injury to one of those guys.
Quinn Bailey is another option there Vic Fangio has discussed.
One of the big stories of camp so far is how entrenched Lloyd Cushenberry III has been at his center position in year two. There has not even been a battle for that job as Cushenberry has dominated 1st-team reps.
