ESPN's Adam Caplan tweeted out that the Broncos are among a number of teams that will visit or workout Colorado State offensive line prospect Ty Sambrailo.

This is not the first time that the Broncos have been connected to Sambrailo this offseason. The Broncos were on hand to watch Sambrailo take part in his Pro Day, and also met with him during February's NFL Scouting Combine.
Sambrailo is one of the more athletic offensive linemen in the draft, so it does make sense that the Broncos continue to be connected to him. Also, Sambrailo is a very versatile prospect. According to Caplan, teams believe he can play either tackle position and either guard position. Also, apparently one team even worked Sambrailo out at center.
The Broncos are looking for athletic lineman like Sambrailo to fit into Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking offensive scheme. They're also entering the draft with multiple holes along their offensive line. So having a versatile prospect who can play all five positions and fits your scheme could be rather beneficial to the Broncos.
Sambrailo is expected to go somewhere in the top 50 picks of the draft. I'd be surprised if the Broncos took him with their first round pick, but I could see the Broncos taking him in the second round if he is still on the board.
