  • Tristan Wirfs

    Been reading a lot of different articles about potential targets that the Broncos could be after at #15, and Tristan Wirfs is a name that has come up several times as a guy that Elway and Fangio appear to really like.


    Granted, we haven't gotten to free agency, and it's the season of smokescreens and misdirection, but, I read similar things last year about Noah Fant. Now, there are a lot of OL needy teams ahead of us, but, Wirfs, by many accounts, appears to be viewed as a guard in the NFL level, and if so, it's possible he could slip to us, especially, if some of the teams ahead of us address their OL during free agency.

    This is something I wouldn't mind, if we go with Bolles at LT for one more year, although, I would prefer to get someone who can become our future LT.

    Thoughts?

    Wirfs can play everywhere on the line. He played RT at Iowa, but also played 3 games at LT filling in for injury. He has all the tools to succeed, and is an athletic freak. He comes out of a very well coached program, and will fit very well in our system. He can initially start out at guard, and get even more technique refinement from Munchak, and if the Bolles or James experiment fails, he can man those spots. It looks unlikely he makes it to us, but I'd prefer him over just about anybody we are likely to see at 15.

      Just curious, would you be willing to try and trade up for him? I'm not big on trading up but I would be ok if we did.

        It depends how the board plays out tbh, and the price.

          Wirfs just set the record for OL vertical, and tied the record for broadjump.

            A Hawkeye pipeline doesn’t hurt. Jewel, Fant, Wirfs ?, maybe QB Nate Stanley in the later rounds?

            That’s a tough call if it came down to Ruggs or Wirfs.

                Wirfs stock is rising....had a really good day at the combine. He can run, looks smooth, and has powerful looking legs!!

                  Another Dalton Risner type guy! We should definitely take him if he’s on the board but I’m pretty confident that either Wirfs, Thomas, Wills will be on the board at 15!

                  Loving the face paint! These guys are bad asses!

                    This would be a tough call. I want Ruggs sooooo bad, but if Wirfs is there......man , you gotta take him.

                      Rumor is Wills is slipping a bit, because teams have concerns about him understanding complex blocking schemes. So they think he'll be forced inside. I'd take the gamble and start him at RG, and see what he has at OT.

                        ESPN

                        Iowa's Tristan Wirfs also had a notable effort on Friday, as the 320-pound offensive tackle put up a vertical jump of 36.5 inches -- the best by any offensive lineman at the combine since 2006. He topped Morgan State tackle Joshua Miles' jump of 36 inches at last year's combine.

                        Wirfs' vertical topped combine efforts by DeAndre Hopkins (36 inches), A.J. Green (34.5) and Amari Cooper (33) from previous years, and was better than the vertical leap of 26 wide receivers who worked out Thursday at the combine.

                        Wirfs also ran a 4.86 (unofficial) 40-yard dash, which would be the fastest by any player at least 320 pounds since 2006. The previous fastest was 4.92 by offensive lineman Greg Robinson in 2014.

                        Wirfs' broad jump of 10 feet, 1 inch was also a combine record for offensive linemen.

                          Just a mini update....Wirfs was clocked at 4.85 after all was said and done. I know, what's another .01, but when you get that good a number, it just keeps sounding sweeter!

                            Wirfs will be off the board by 15.

                              I have him penciled in to Cleveland at 10
