Watch new Broncos sixth round pick Netane Muti hit 44 bench reps at the NFL Combine

New, comments

The Denver Broncos got an interior offensive lineman in the sixth round who is pretty damn strong.

The Denver Broncos took a flier in the sixth round on an oft-injured offensive guard who Pro Football Focus had rated as their top interior offensive lineman in this draft class. And for good reason. There is clearly a lot of potential there and Netane Muti is definitely a strong man. He benched 225 pounds 44 times at the NFL Combine, which was the most by any prospect since 2012. If he can find a way to stay healthy, this pick could turn into a steal for the Broncos.

Broncos offensive line coach, Mike Munchak, has a new center in Lloyd Cushenberry who figures to start Week 1 and can work on developing Muti into a potential starter down the road. Not a bad start. They just need some tackle depth...
