As Bronco got more reps at G his value around the league dropped. He is an adequate C but struggles at G. His only trait at G that may be average is his ability to pull but he still struggles in space on the move to hit his target. Given the growing trend of limited active OL on game day, You want a G that could play C not a C who could slide to G. Bronco fits the latter. He was given opportunities at G and never improved. Bronco may have been the best option over the years when he had to come in for Pouncey....But what made him that option is coachable. You take a cerebral guy like Beachum with more skills & position flexibilty than Legursky and coach him up at C.

More an symptom of the cap mess we find ourselevs in and the need to have flexibility with lost of key upcoming actions required: Sanders, Pouncey, Cortez Allen, etc.
