Montgomery reportedly seen as starting center

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The addition of Will Montgomery adds plenty of intrigue to Denver's offensive line and who might start, and where.

According to Jeff Legwold, Denver foresees Montgomery as their starting center.

Pending the draft, this would mean Manny Ramirez or Orlando Franklin starts at left guard, with Franklin or Chris Clark manning right tackle.

Now, if we want to confuse things even more by throwing some poop at the wall, there's always two-time Carolina guard Travelle Wharton, who says he's considering retirement.

He had scheduled but canceled a visit with Denver last summer before returning to the Panthers and putting forth a stellar season.

Obviously, the Broncos could have used Wharton last year.

We'll assume the signing of Montgomery would preclude Wharton from reuniting with John Fox and Dave Magazu, but it's an idea to tuck away for the next several months.
