NFL Analyst Shocks Denver Broncos Fans With Most Underrated Player Pick
Sport Illustrated's Conor Orr from Monday Morning Quarterback (MMQB) announced the most underrated players for each team in the American Football Conference (AFC) this upcoming season.
The Denver Broncos have been silently putting together a team that could give fans the season they're hoping for.
With so many good additions to the team and some staples on the roster already it was hard to narrow down who the most underrated player was in my mind.
Luckily, I don't have to pick, someone else already did.
Sports Illustrated's Conor Orr picked the player he thought was the most underrated for each of the 32 NFL teams, and his selection for the Broncos was Garett Bolles.
You can read what Orr had to say about his pick for the Broncos below:
I may be in the minority here, but I think it’s noteworthy that Pro Football Focus noted a year over year improvement each season for Bolles and, despite Denver’s lack of confidence (they declined his fifth-year option), he is above replacement level at the tackle position and that is hard to find. Pro Football Focus graded Bolles as the 14th best run blocker and 19th best pass blocker among all qualifying tackles, which, again, in this market is not easy to find. Would you rather deal with Bolles and continue to ride this slower-than-desired ascension, or spend a pair of first-round picks on someone like Laremy Tunsil, who is better, but not two first-round picks better?
