“The guy works extremely hard," Ray said. "I’ve known Connor for the entire time [we were] at Mizzou because we came in together. He’s a weight room animal. He does everything the coaches ask of him. He’s coachable [and] he’s smart. I’m looking forward to seeing what he does for this team.”
McGovern will immediately compete for a starting job at guard for the Broncos. Denver has second-year guard Max Garcia, who projects as a starter at one of the interior O-line positions.
McGovern is a great fit for Gary Kubiak's zone blocking system. McGovern has the football IQ, athleticism and strength to potentially become a 10-year starter on the Denver O-line.
