The Broncos drafted Garrett Bolles a tackle with the 20th selection of the 2017 draft. “We just thought athletically, the way he played the game, the mentality he brings to the game, he was, in our mind, the best left tackle in the draft," Elway said. "He was our target. ... Athletically we just thought the ceiling was much higher with Garett. If Garett turns out to be what we think he is, he solves a big problem for us for a long time."
It was a big problem the Broncos tried to solve as quickly as possible in this draft. With three picks in the draft’s second day, they can turn their attention to other matters.
