In the second round, the Denver Broncos decided to shore up their offensive line via Colorado State's offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo.

And in the third round, they went with someone who could possibly help him block, selecting tight end Jeff Heuerman from Ohio State.

Heuerman, a two-year starter at Ohio State, leaves a bit to be desired in the weight room but a good vertical threat. If you're looking up tape, check the 2013 stuff, not the 2014.

Our friends over at Cincy Jungle said this of Heuerman:

In 2013, Heuerman showed great speed and ability to adjust to footballs that were thrown off target. He is excellent at finding the football and leaping to get it at its highest point.

Some of Heuerman’s weaknesses are his strength on the field. Although he is well known as a weight room leader, it doesn't always translate to the field as he is easily moved off his blocks in pass and run blocking.

There is actually a member of the readers here ( at Mile High Report who nailed this pick on March 30th, 2015.
