2017 NFL Draft: Broncos select Garett Bolles as 20th overall pick

PHILADELPHIA -- The NFL draft is upon us, and team managers have had to make crucial decisions in their war rooms as they make decisions that will have repercussions for years -- their first-round draft picks in the 2017 NFL draft. That was the case for John Elway, along with the Denver Broncos, as they selected Garett Bolles with the 20th overall pick in the draft. 

Bolles, an offensive tackle, is expected to immediately bolster the offensive line, a major issue with the Broncos offense last year. 

The pick could have immediate impacts on how Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, who are vying for the starting quarterback roles, will act in the pocket.
