Broncos sent their offensive line coach to Taliese Fuaga’s pro day

Denver Broncos offensive line coach Zach Strief will be a busy man leading up to the 2024 NFL draft.

Strief traveled to Washington earlier this month to watch offensive tackle Taliese Fuaga at Oregon State’s pro day. Fuaga (6-6, 324 pounds) is considered one of the top tackles in this year’s class.

Our most recent NFL mock draft has Fuaga falling to No. 16 in the first round, but some draft pundits expect him to go in the top 10. He might be a potential target for the Broncos at pick No. 12.

Strief also helped run drills for offensive tackles Joe Alt and Blake Fisher at Notre Dame’s pro day, and he worked with offensive linemen at Michigan’s pro day as well.

Strief, 40, played for the New Orleans Saints from 2006-2017. Three years after Strief announced his retirement, Sean Payton made him an assistant offensive line coach in New Orleans.

Strief followed Payton to Denver in 2023 to serve as the team’s offensive line coach. He is now entering his second season on the job.
