Denver Drafts Ty Sambrailo and Jeff Heuerman on Day 2
After making a splashy trade and selecting Shane Ray in the first round the Broncos started day two by nabbing offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo. He is an athletic left tackle that can play positions all over the line. Versatility is a great asset to have on the offensive line and Sambrailo has it in spades.
At 6’6” and 311 pounds Ty has room to grow into his frame and should continue to put on size. He has tremendous upside, but was only projected to go in the 3rd or 4th round in a lot of mock drafts leading up to the draft. People did not know what to make of him as a player, he grew up as a competitive skiier, and excelled at the ‘Giant Slalom’ . It seems that if he can improve in the strength and size department, these factors coupled with his athleticism should make him into a standout player.
Jeff Heuerman was the Broncos selection in the third round. A tight end from Ohio State, Jeff stands 6’5” and weighs an impressive 254 pounds. He ran the 40 yard dash in 4.8 seconds and has athletic traits ideal for his position. Heuerman played in every game for OSU from 2012-2014. Last season he dealt with a foot injury that limited his production, but shouldn’t be a hindrance in the future. Otherwise he is a great blocking TE and should do some damage catching the ball as well, with Peyton under center.

One of Landin’s fondest memories was his youth baseball team narrowly missing out on the opportunity to play in the Little League World Series Final. Unfortunately, during high school Landin was forced to forget his originally preferred sports as a freak basketball injury nearly ended his life. All prospects for Division I sports scholarships evaporated. Despite this set back, Landin focused his energies in new modes, becoming an All-State musician, avid sports journalist and by "Bodybuilding" to stimulate and heal his body. In an effort to assist others, Landin is currently pursuing Pre-Medical, Dosimetry and Sports Medicine degrees.MyFantasySportsTalk
