Realistically, it's fair to expect Quinn Meinerz to be ready to take a starting job in 2022.
But it's not out of the realm of possibility he steals a starting job at some point his rookie season.

But drafting a center wasn't a surprise to Lloyd. He saw it coming.
And he welcomes the competition.
How did Quinn Meinerz end up in Division III? "That’s a great question. I asked that to myself," the Broncos' rookie offensive lineman said.
George Paton isn't just trusting his talent evaluators with his high-upside picks. He's trusting the entire Broncos organization to tap into the immense talent that he's bringing to Denver in 2021.
