GM John Elway needs to figure out what the team is going to do at the left tackle position now that things appear to have ‘clicked’ for 2017 first-round pick Garett Bolles. Now, before we get ahead of ourselves it would be prudent to remind folks that Bolles has had stretches of good play before in his career from which he eventually regressed.

However, typically those stretches would come after a rough start to the season where Bolles would eventually level off and improve. The 2020 season has been different in that Bolles has been quite obviously the Broncos’ best offensive lineman through the first three weeks to start the season.

Bolles was drafted in the first round for a multitude of reasons. With solid size, exceptional movement skills, and a nasty disposition, he’s that classic raw, ‘toolsy’ tackle that has all-too-often gotten a coach fired. However, it really appears things have come together for Bolles.

Through four games Bolles is currently Pro Football Focus’ highest-graded Bronco on the entire team earning an 86.6 grade. He also currently resides as the fourth highest-graded tackle (left or right) in the NFL.
