Denver Broncos Draft Offensive Tackle Garett Bolles

A former Junior A hockey player, Alexander "Alex" Garbiso is an Onnit-certified trainer and the owner of Mile High Nutrition and Fitness. When he isn't helping clients reach their health goals, Alex Garbiso enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the Denver Broncos.

Seeking to improve its offensive line, the Broncos drafted offensive tackle Garett Bolles with the 20th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Last season, Denver gave up the ninth-most quarterback sacks (40) in the 32-team league, and the addition of Bolles should greatly improve the team's ability to protect its quarterback. The 24-year-old was an elite run blocker at the University of Utah and is expected to start on the left side for the Broncos, while Menelik Watson and Donald Stephenson will battle for playing time on the right side.

A former five-star college recruit, Bolles completed the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine in just 4.95 seconds, which is impressive given his 6-foot-5, 297-pound frame. He started 13 games for Utah in 2016 and earned First-team All-Conference honors.
