2016 NFL Mock Draft number 2
By Dan Heaning
- Denver Broncos
Spencer Drango – OT/G – Baylor
Both Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler have been fair game to opposing pass rushers and the Broncos will want to address that as they potentially move forward with Osweiler.
Drango has elite level upside, the one concern is his back. He had surgery on Nov. 2013 which seems like a good amount of time to clear him. But back issues usually find a way of sticking around.
Yes, Denver needs to address a vanishing defensive line, but with Manning coming off the books and Derek Wolfe re-signed to a four-year deal, it’s not as urgent as the offensive line. Regardless, there are still plenty of defensive linemen left on the board like Emmanuel Ogbah and Shilique Calhoun.
However, if they are going to continue with Osweiler they’ll need to protect him much better than they did this season as he is not as quick to get rid of the football as Manning.
