Denver Broncos starting offensive line combination no. 4
LT: Garett Bolles
LG: Tom Compton*
C: Graham Glasgow*
RG: Quinn Meinerz
RT: Billy Turner*
I think a lot of fans would have mixed feelings regarding this offensive line group.
On the one hand, it’s a veteran group, and you like to see that. On the other hand, it’s about the least ‘homegrown’ you can possibly assemble for the Broncos in 2022.
Having Tom Compton, a free agent signing, stepping in as a starting left guard would be disappointing on a number of levels. It would mean that the Broncos deemed him the best player at a position where multiple young guys should be competing to start.
Graham Glasgow at the center position would be bittersweet. Obviously, the Broncos paid him a lot of money to come in as a free agent in the 2020 offseason and he has had a tough time staying healthy his first couple of seasons with the team.
On the other hand, Glasgow starting at center would mean that he beat Lloyd Cushenberry out for the job, which would effectively declare the end of Cushenberry in Denver barring a scenario where Glasgow is hurt, Cushenberry has to step in, and he does incredibly well.
Billy Turner at right tackle remains arguably the best option as of right now. I think Calvin Anderson earning the starting job there would be the best case scenario.
