    Multiple times I watched him reach the 2nd level on combo blocks, Every time he sealed his man off. He may not be an all pro but man he appears to be at minimum a tier below.
    I need more Oline, please and thank you

      Hopefully we’ll see Tate Ratledge or Paris Johnson jr playing next to him in the not too distant future.

      Elway has drafted eleven O-Linemen: Orlando Franklin (2011, 2nd, #46); Philip Blake (2012, 4th, #108); Vinston Painter (2013, 6th, #173); Michael Schofield (2014, 3rd, #95); Matt Paradis (2014, 6th, #207); Ty Sambrailo (2015, 2nd, #59); Max Garcia (2015, 4th, #133); Connor McGovern (2016, 5th, #144); Garrett Bolles (2017, 1st, #20); Sam Jones (2018, 6th, #183); and, Dalton Risner (2019, 2nd, #41)

      Of these, Franklin, Blake and Painter are no longer in football. Franklin was a starter and good player for Denver.

      McGovern, Bolles and Risner currently start for Denver. Paradis starts for Carolina and Schofield starts for LAC.

      Sambrailo is Swing Tackle for Atlanta, Garcia is on PUP in AZ and Jones is on PS in AZ.

      Elway has signed a number of veteran free agents who have been on the roster and have played in regular season games including: Manny Ramirez; Louis Vasquez; Dan Koppen; Will Montgomery; Tyler Polumbus; Ryan Harris; Evan Mathis; Donald Stephenson; Russell Okung; Menelik Watson; Ron Leary; Jared Veldheer; Billy Turner; Cyrus Kouandijo; and, Ja'Wuan James.

      Leary and James are currently Denver starters, when healthy.

      Polumbus, Koppen, Ramirez, Vasquez, Montgomery, Harris, Mathis, Stephenson and Veldheer are no longer in football.

      Watson and Kouandijo are free agents.

      Okung is on LAC's reserve non-football illness list (pulmonary embolism, blood clots in lungs)

      Turner is the starting RG for GB.

      Elway has signed UDFA O-Linemen every year, I believe, and some have made the PS. A few have gone from PS to the roster including two currently, Elijah Wilkinson and Austin Schlottmann. Jake Rodgers has been a career PS guy who is currently on the roster. Corey Levin was claimed from waivers to the roster and subsequently moved to the PS due to the need for an extra T (Rodgers) Also on the current PS is Quinn Bailey and Tyler Jones. Nico Falah is on Denver's IR.

      During the past nine seasons, eleven O-Linemen have been drafted and at least fifteen veteran free agents have been signed to the roster and have played. There has been quantity, but not enough quality especially in the Draft. Some of the free agents were too expensive for what they contributed.

      Building an O-Line through the Draft seems a better course than signing top free agents who are pretty expensive. Dalton Risner represents the type of O-Lineman Denver needs to draft every year for the next few years. Except for Bolles (2017, 1st, #20), Dalton is the highest draft pick Elway has used on an O-Lineman. I think that indicates the level of commitment Denver needs in order to assemble a quality group of starting O-Linemen going forward.

        I certainly believe it needs to be the main focus going forward. We all know what good offensive linemen can do for any team but we’ve lacked such in Denver.

        I’d go O-line over, Edge, DE, ILB, TE and even QB unless we’re picking in the top 3. Call me old fashion but it all starts up front for me on offense!

        We need to get points on the board and we’ve been through many QBs, RBs and even TEs. We need to focus on smart offensive line prospects!

        Smart over athleticism!

          (Got Fant and didn't break the bank in the First round)
          Then got Risner and Lock in the Second round.

          I think a lot of our recent draft day moves have been good.

          Just hope we can do more player development with those choices
          Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

            Honestly this has been the most impressive thing about him for me. He’s always pushing the pile. Freeman’s first down run where he was stood up 2 or 3 yards short was all Risner, same with one of the TD runs.

            He’s a tone setter on the offensive line and the rest of them need to get on board or get shipped out for more guys like Risner.

              The two Colorado kids have really come through...Risner and Lindsay. Now we need two CU guys to add to them...Winfree improves and we get Shenault. Plus Risner and Taz are two of the best guys on the team.

                Dalton Risner is the offensive version of Derek Wolfe but better!

                    Time will tell. So far I'm not at all impressed with Fant, and Lock hasn't played yet.
