Denver -- Blake Schlueter (7th round, 225th overall), Broncos

Where have Broncos heard this before? Schlueter is an athletic, but somewhat short offensive lineman with a motor that won't stop and toughness that literally knocks opponents to (if not at) their knees.

Don't be surprised if Schlueter works his way to a productive 12- or 15-year career despite being taken so low in the draft. He ran an almost unheard-of 4.8-second 40-yard dash at his pro day. Thus far in Denver, coaches love every part of Schlueter's game.

This is good news. OL depth is a bit of a concern and he could help.

Haven't heard any of our "embeds" talk about him yet. Hopefully, one of them can watch the back-up O-linemen and see if he stands out.

Wonder if we have someone in place to take over from Casey Wiegmann when he is done.

Any word on how Kory Leichensteiger is looking?

Right now Lichtensteiger is playing C 2. It's hard to scout C from where we sit, but I'll try to take a look at Schleuter today.

i have been under the impression Schleuter is the guy to take over for Weigman and Lichtensteiger the guy to take over for Hamilton
