OT – Garrett Bolles – Round 1
Bolles made sense in Round 1 for the Broncos, who declined Russell Okung’s option to kick off free agency. Bolles earned First Team All-PAC 12 honors in 2016, his only year at Utah after serving a two-year mission and subsequently spending two years at Snow College.
WR/KR – Carlos Henderson – Round 3
There was no shortage of dynamic small-school receivers in the 2017 crop when mentioning the likes of Taywan Taylor, Corey Davis, Cooper Kupp and Chad Williams.
Henderson fits right in.
He battered C-USA defenses on a weekly basis and proved his versatility with Special Teams Player of the Year honors. For a team starved of another playmaker, the Broncos got a good one in Henderson.
G – Ronald Leary – Free Agency
Leary didn’t allow a sack with the Dallas Cowboys last season, not to mention he received a run-blocking grade of 82.5 by Pro Football Focus, which noted that clip ranked 14th among guards.
They still have a Super Bowl-caliber defense that can carry them a long way, but there is major work to do on offense, especially at quarterback, and they will do it with a new coaching staff led by head coach Vance Joseph, who is a defensive specialist. This organization has been very stable, with minimum change over the years, so 2017 will be a challenge for everybody to adjust accordingly. — FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton
