Horse Tracks: Broncos among the teams to meet with tackle Ty Sambrailo

Good Morning Broncos Country!

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

With Free Agency beginning to slow down some, it's time to start turning our attention to the NFL Draft. The All-Star games and the Combine are a thing of the past, and now teams are turning their attention to prospects Pro Days, and setting up private visits with certain prospects.

According to Walter Football's Tony Pauline, the Denver Broncos are among a handful of teams who have met with Colorado State prospect Ty Sambrailo.

Nineteen teams were on hand primarily to watch offensive tackle Tyler Sambrailo, who ran the 3-cone drill in a time of 7.26 seconds (compared to 7.54 seconds at the combine).

The offensive lineman met with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers over the course of two days.

This isn't the first time the Broncos have shown interest in Sambrailo. The Denver Posts Mike Klis tweeted out that the Broncos met with him during last month's NFL Scouting Combine.

Sambrailo would fit in well in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme. He has the athleticism and footwork you look for in a zone-blocking offensive lineman. One trait that I like most about him is his aggressiveness. He blocks with a mean streak and can be the most aggressive player on the field.

There are some questions about Sambralio's strength. Many scouts note that he lacks the core strength many teams look for in an NFL player and that he will need to spend time in the weight room before he hits the field. Some believe that he is better suited to a guard in the NFL. He doesn't have the long arms you look for in an NFL tackle and add that with his strength questions, he could be better suited to be a left guard.

Overall I think he would be a solid second round pick for the Broncos. He can play right tackle or guard for the Broncos(both areas of need), and his skill set fits in nicely with what the Broncos want to do along the offensive line.
