If Denver doesn’t fall for one of the QBs, and Barkley is gone, do you see them taking an OL at 5, or trading back, getting picks, and still getting an elite OL? If so, which one? Nelson, Brown, Williams, McGlinchey? #AskMase

Part of that depends on which quarterback they might add in free agency or via a trade. The offensive line could be tempting, and the best of the bunch, in my opinion, is Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson. Yes, he’s a guard, and no guard has been taken in the top 10 picks since 2013, but he seems likely to change that, so to get him, you might not be able to move back very far.
Needs could pop up and change as the free-agent market develops. For example, if the Broncos lose inside linebackers Todd Davis and Corey Nelson in free agency, they could have a pressing need there that leads them to Georgia’s Roquan Smith or Virginia Tech’s Tremaine Edmunds. It’s still early, and the Broncos’ possibilities are more wide-open than they might seem on the surface.
Is OT Alex Cappa someone who could be a starter at RT for us?

Someday, but not immediately. Cappa had some moments where he was able to demonstrate his strength and power, but he also had some difficulties at times. He allowed a sack in Saturday’s Senior Bowl game, and during one period of practice Thursday, he had to bear-hug UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin to prevent him from getting a sack in a one-on-one drill. Cappa can be an effective starter in the NFL, but he will probably need a year of development.

Before he injured his hamstring during Tuesday’s practice, he looked like he would end up being the best tight end in Mobile….
