In 2016, Paradis emerged as one of the best centers in the game, finishing the season as Pro Football Focus' No. 28 NFL player in their top-101. And he did it all playing hurt for most of the season.
Paradis entered the 2017 offseason with surgery scheduled for both hips. He knocked the first one out in early January, on his right hip.
The good news is that Paradis underwent his second surgery on Tuesday, and it was a success, according to his agent.
Paradis now has a long road of rehab ahead of him, but all indications are that he'll be ready to go by training camp in July. All signs point to the Broncos moving to a predominantly power blocking scheme, mixed with some zone principles.
Paradis has distinguished himself as arguably the best zone center in the league, and I expect him to take well to the power principles he'll be expected to execute under new Offensive Line Coach Jeff Davidson.
