Mike Remmers was a longtime starter for the Oregon State Beavers at right tackle before moving to left tackle in his senior season. A walk-on to start his career, Remmers was a finalist for the Burlsworth trophy, which is given annually to the best player in the country who began his career as a walk-on. Remmers finished his OSU career with 44 starts, good for sixth in school history.
The entire OSU team struggled in 2011, Remmers included. While he has the athleticism to be a fit at left tackle, he may simply be better suited at right. Watching film from 2010, I saw a very quick, athletic lineman able to hit multiple defenders with power. Watching film from 2011 (collective groan at the soundtrack), I was less impressed. He got pushed back in pass protection too often and looked lost at times in run blocking. His quarterback Sean Mannion was sacked 24 times.
Note: There are no in-depth scouting reports on Remmers that I could find, so these anecdotes are based on 10 minutes of film study. Hardly the thorough evaluation the player deserves.
Camp Competition: Ryan Clady, Orlando Franklin, Ryan Harris, Tony Hills, Chris Clark, Adam Grant
Camp Outlook: The Broncos value versatility, which Remmers brings with experience at both left and right tackle, and he has the off-field hard working qualities the Broncos value as a former walk-on. It’s an uphill battle, but with a solid camp he could overtake the likes of Harris or Hills in a backup role. The Broncos may only keep one backup tackle.

BroncoTalk’s undrafted rookie reports are compiled by examining second-hand scouting reports, news articles, and, when available, film footage of the Broncos’ undrafted rookie. Remmers is one of 13 undrafted free agent rookies the Broncos will bring in to compete in their 2012 training camp.
