Check out these highlights of new Broncos center Alex Forsyth
The Denver Broncos picked Oregon center Alex Forsyth in the seventh round (257th overall) of the 2023 NFL draft last weekend.
The Broncos acquired the seventh-round pick they used to select Forsyth when they traded a sixth-round pick to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for tight end Adam Trautman and the pick that ended up being Forsyth.
Coaches voted Forsyth a first-team All-Pac-12 player last year after he started 12 games for the Ducks. He missed five games due to injury and 2021 and one game due to injury in 2022, which might have hurt his draft stock.
Here are highlights from Forsyth’s time at Oregon:
Forsyth started his career with the Ducks as a backup swing tackle/guard before later moving to center. He started 28 games at the position over the last three years at Oregon.
Forsyth seems unlikely to start over Lloyd Cushenberry in Week 1, but he has long-term potential to eventually become the team’s starting center.
