Quenton Nelson. 5. player. 45. . G. Notre Dame

Now, the NFL draft will officially have started. Four quarterback-starved teams moved mountains to get to their spots, and the best non-quarterbacks in the draft have all fallen to the fifth overall pick.

This is where the Broncos will take the top overall player and a player who fits a huge need for their roster. While everyone can tell you it is Saquon Barkley, Nelson is the best player in the draft. Barkley has questions in terms of physicality and finishing runs. Nelson does not have any concerning flaws. Barkley may have a higher ceiling, but Nelson does not have a floor. He is going to be an All-Pro.

The Broncos offensive line has been the biggest issue on their roster since the last season of Peyton Manning. After taking a left tackle last year in Garett Bolles, they finish off that side with the addition of Quenton Nelson. It makes too much sense to pass on.
