SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes and current Denver Broncos offensive tackle Garett Bolles has made the NFL Top 100 list for the first time in his career.

Coming off the best season of his young career in 2020, Garett Bolles has made the NFL Top 100 list at No. 82.

Bolles was taken by the Broncos with the 20th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He played one season at Utah after a strong JUCO career at Snow College.

Bolles was heavily criticized during the early portion of his NFL career in Denver after either leading or nearly leading the league in holding calls. As Bolles approached his contract year in 2020, he stepped up his game and was named to the Pro Bowl and First Team All-Pro.

After being ranked the second best offensive tackle by ESPN and NFLDraftScout.com, Bolles received a contract extension, keeping him in Denver through the 2024 season. According to the NFL Network, Bolles’ deal is worth $68 million.
