    Colts LG Quenton Nelson was named offensive rookie of the month for October.

    An award usually reserved for quarterbacks, receivers, and running backs, Nelson is the first guard in NFL history to receive the honor. He certainly deserves it. The No. 6 overall pick got off to something of a rough start, but he has been dominant over the last month, helping the Colts' offensive line develop into one of the better units in the league.

              agreed. That's what I keep thinking as well. those 2 players could have solidified the oline for years.

                • All those people that said you don’t take a G in the top ten because they don’t have the impact like other positions. Clearly he is making a huge impact. He did have a slow start but now he is wrecking defenders. He’s a dude you’ll never have to worry about for 10+ years now.

                    • I was a big fan of drafting Nelson and was disappointed that Denver didn't. And he's been great. But at the same time a good QB helps an o-line out, and having Andrew Luck back, and playing at a pretty high level makes it easier for the o-line. So I'm not too sure that Nelson would have had the same impact in Denver. Not to say he wouldn't have been very good, but not the level we're seeing now.

                      And it's not like Chubb has been awful either, they're the rookies of the month, it's which side of the ball did you want to improve the line on? If Denver had taken Nelson we might all be complaining about how little pass rush Denver has and how they should have drafted Chubb because Ray was going to get hurt.

                        Chubb playing this well this early makes it easier dont get me wrong. As much as i liked nelson, i preferred chubb over rosen or allen at the time

                          I don't think ray is the comp here. barrett would be the one to compare with, imo.

                            I'm just using a Broncos pass rusher being out due to injury for the example.

                              I don't necessarily disagree with you, but what good is having a $$$-Pro Bowl QB if he's going to be out for a season with shoulder and kidney injuries due to his O-Line not keeping him upright? There needs to be a delicate balance.

                              I'm content with Chubb although I preferred Nelson. Imagining Lindsay running to paydirt behind Nelson's blocking is a nice fantasy.

                              I would prefer Denver to focus heavily on OL in this year's draft and defense ( DT Jarrett, DE Clowney, CB's Verrett / Darby) via the FA.

                              Round 1: Greg Little, LT, Mississippi
                              Round 2: Michael Deiter, C, Wisconsin
                              Round 3: Beau Benzschawel, LG, Wisconsin
                              Round 4: Max Scharping, RT, Northern Illinois
                              Round 4: (Texans) Corbin Kaufusi, 3-4DE, BYU
                              Round 5: Nik Needham, CB, UTEP
                              Round 5: (Vikings) Khalil Hodge, ILB/OLB, Buffalo
                              Round 6: Diontae Johnson,WR/R, Toledo
                              Round 7: JonVea Johnson, WR, Toledo

                              LT Little
                              LG Benzschawel / McGovern
                              OC Deiter / Jones
                              RG Bolles / McGovern
                              RT Scharping / Johnson

                              Solidify the OL (focus on the run) then draft QB in '20.

                                Maybe. Maybe not.

                                How much impact is Chubb having? He has 7 sacks but the team is still 29th ranked run D and 17th ranked pass D. They are 3rd ranked for sacks but that isn't really impacting their overall defense, unless they would be ranked even worse for pass D. Last year they were 4th ranked pass D and 5th ranked run D.
