Vance Joseph calls offensive line a priority after quarterback position

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph met with the media at the 2018 NFL Combine on Wednesday to talk NFL Draft prospects. One of the more important comments came when asked about the offensive line.

Joseph minced no words, saying that improving along the offensive line is a priority. Well, a priority outside of the quarterback position anyway.

“I think the offensive line is always a priority outside of quarterback,” Joseph said. “We have to play better at quarterback. That’s apparent.”

He went on to say they would discuss moving Ronald Leary back to left guard and noted that Menelik Watson is still their right tackle, but I think everyone knows the Broncos are looking to replace him and probably Max Garcia at guard.

In an ideal world, the Broncos land Kirk Cousins and either take Quenton Nelson at number five or trade back with a team like the Buffalo Bills and pick up Mike McGlinchey. Or heck, somehow trade up from the second round and snag both players.

There are a lot more possibilities if they get their starting quarterback in free agency than if they are forced to get one at number five. What a fun offseason this is shaping up to be!
