Elgton Jenkins, Tackle/Guard
The Broncos would have to splurge in order to sign Elgton Jenkins, but if they are serious about making the offensive line a lot better, this would be one of the best ways to do that.
Elgton Jenkins, a former second-round pick, has been tremendous for the Green Bay Packers. He missed a good portion of the 2021 season after tearing his ACL but he made the Pro Bowl the season before and will still be just 27 years old when the 2023 season kicks off.
Jenkins would be an immediate starter for the team and he is one who can be versatile as well, playing either tackle or guard. The Broncos, as it currently stands, have issues at both of those spots.
The team does not have a long-term answer at right tackle and at guard, is Dalton Risner, a free agent himself in 2023, in the future plans? What about Graham Glasgow?
Paton could move on from both of those players and create a spot to bring in a guy such as Jenkins.
He will be one of the top 10 or 20 free agents overall in the 2023 class and Paton should be looking at what he could do to make that deal happen, though it would be one where the team had to come up with a big number.
