With how anemic the Denver Broncos' offensive line has been this year and considering how badly Brock Osweiler has been beat up of late, Executive V.P. of Football Operations John Elway needed to bolster the unit.
Tuesday, he did that, signing offensive guard Robert Myers off the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad. Myers, a 6-foot-5, 330-pound guard, was selected by the Ravens in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Tennessee.
He competed in training camp and preseason action, but was ultimately waived in the final roster cuts. The Indianapolis Colts picked him up but waived him just a few days later.
He eventually ended up back on the Ravens' practice squad where Elway plucked him. I got a good look at Myers at the 2015 Reese's Senior Bowl, where he competed this past January.
Myers was impressive in Mobile, AL and displayed solid technique and great power against his fellow seniors — the best in the country. Here's a snippet from his NFL.com draft profile.
Myers is already above average from a technical standpoint and is a quick processor when the game speeds up. Myers is a guard prospect who can pull and play in a power scheme. He has the pass protection traits of an NFL starter. The ceiling is higher for Myers than many guard prospects in this draft, and with more coaching and work in the weight room, he should be an NFL starter.
I really like his upside. In fact, Myers reminds me of Max Garcia, who was also at the Senior Bowl, whom the Broncos selected in the fourth round of this year's draft.
