5 prospects falling into the Denver Broncos laps on Day 2
Denver Broncos prospect no. 4: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan
If the Denver Broncos are going to trade up for their right tackle of the future, don’t be shocked if it’s Central Michigan’s Bernhard Raimann.
Although Raimann passes the test in terms of being a very high RAS player at the tackle position, he lacks ideal length for the tackle position and length is crucial for the outside zone scheme.
Could that pop up as an issue?
There are two significant connections to keep in mind here.
First of all, Broncos tight ends coach Jake Moreland was coaching up offensive linemen at this year’s Senior Bowl on the staff that coached Raimann while he was still a member of the New York Jets.
Moreland got hands-on time with Raimann in Mobile and the Broncos sent their new offensive line coach Butch Barry to the Central Michigan pro day to watch both Raimann and Luke Goedeke, another potential fit for the Broncos there at 64.
Although Raimann lacks length, the most concerning thing here could be his age. He will be one of the older rookies coming in, but tackles in recent years have proven that doesn’t really matter.
I think because he’s such a tremendous athlete, Raimann is still in play for the Broncos especially if he falls to 64.
