45. There are question marks over the future of Broncos’ defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, who is set to hit free agency. Whether the Broncos can afford to keep him is unknown, and should he leave, they will have a need on the defensive line. Oregon’s Arik Armstead would be an ideal fit for the Broncos: he has incredible size, standing at 6’8″, and could develop into a top run-stuffer for the Broncos. He is still raw and will need time to develop, but he can become a suitable replacement to Knighton long-term should he walk in free agency.. DT. Oregon. Arik Armstead. 28. player
