The Denver Broncos have clearly made a commitment to offense. They've surrounded second-year quarterback Drew Lock with a ton of weapons, and it looks like they want to do some serious scoring in 2020.

All of that, however, will hinge on the play of the offensive line, and that starts with left tackle Garett Bolles. Heading into his fourth season, Bolles has two big areas that still require improvement, according to all-time great Broncos tackle Ryan Clady.

Bolles has started all 48 games for Denver since being selected with the No. 20 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He's already shown some real promise too, getting a grade of at least 70.0 from Pro Football Focus in all three seasons thus far. That included a career-best overall grade of 76.1 in the 2019 season.

If anyone knows offensive tackle play, it's Clady, who was a two-time first-team All-Pro in Denver (2009 and 2012). It's great to see that Clady also thinks Bolles is making strides in the pros, and it's also very interesting to hear where he thinks Bolles still need to improve to reach the next level.

The 2020 season is set to be a big one for the Broncos, and if they want to exceed expectations in Mile High, Bolles and the offense will need to elevate their game to the next level.
