Horse Tracks: ESPN's Todd McShay talks Broncos draft

New, comments

Good Morning Broncos Country!

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN's Todd McShay held a conference call on Friday and took questions on the NFL Draft. He took some questions on the Broncos and connected them to three offensive tackles.

The Broncos have met with two of the three offensive tackles mentioned(Clemmings and Ogbuehi). I wouldn't be shocked if the Broncos had Jake Fisher in for a visit before the Draft kicks off in a week and a half.

These three tackles are most likely to be available when the Broncos pick at 28. Tackles Andrus Peat, Ereck Flowers, La'el Collins and potentially D.J. Humphries are expected to be off the board.

All three tackles mentioned fit into Kubiak's offensive system very well. They're all athletic, have good foot speed, and are good run blockers. However, all three comes with some questions. Clemmings is very raw, and might now start right away, Fisher gets penalized often, and Ogbuehi is coming off an ACL injury and has some strength issues.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Another day, another mock draft:
