Pros

Has that attitude you want in offensive linemen. Tough and mean. Gives 200 percent each and every play and has a never give up mentality. Plenty of experience at guard and tackle, and brings that versatility, though better at guard at NFL level.

An outstanding double team blocker and shows awareness to split off when need be. Works his feet constantly and through contact. Is really good when pulling for screens. Has some pop on first contact.

Cons

Short legs. Doesn’t have desired NFL length. Slow hands. Often his hands are second to land due to lack of length and how slow they are.

Struggles to maintain balance. Plays far too upright. Struggles to control his body. Can’t sustain blocks long enough.

Pyke has some tools to work with for an offensive line coach, but not enough to be groomed into anything more than a backup and spot starter. His work ethic and desire will be loved by coaches as will the versatility that he brings.

Fit With The Broncos

Pyke would be a developmental pickup later for Denver, who would be stuck behind a lot of bodies. With Pyke, he will likely be drafted and the Broncos can get someone else as an undrafted free agent who fits what Pyke brings both short term and long term.

Draft Grade: Round 6
