With the hiring of Payton and losing draft capital to trade for him, I figured the Broncos are going to have to find a way to address the offensive line in free agency. This is my list of the key targets I think the Broncos need to look at. This list is bound to change with more cuts coming prior to free agency, but this is my shopping list of free agents we should pursue:
1) Ethan Pocic, C Cleveland - It's obvious that the Broncos lost faith in Cushenberry if he was in fact healthy at the end of the year and remained on the IR. Pocic resurrected his career in Cleveland and is young (27) and looks to be improving. He had an PFF rating of 79.2 and has been extremely good on run blocking. Due to the lack of centers on the market, likely will have to pay a little more for him. Probably something like 4 years at $4.5 million a year.
2) Isaac Seumalo, OG Philadelphia - He's had a great year after missing time with injuries in 20 and 21. He's outstanding in pass protection and good as a run blocker. With apparent loss of Rizner, this should be a no brainer. This one will be on the pricey side as well, likely looking at 3 years at somewhere close to $9 million a season.
3) Kaleb McGary, OT Atlanta - He was a former first round pick in 2019 with the Falcons who declined his 5th year option. Outstanding in run blocking he still needs to improve in pass protection. Should help bring some stability to the RT position. This one is going to be to probably hardest to come up with a solid figure, due to his age he likely is going to command more than what his play would justify, maybe a 2 year deal for $13 mil a season.
