Denver Broncos offensive line coach Mike Munchak wants Quinn Meinerz to play primarily as a center, but the rookie offensive lineman will also learn the left guard and right guard positions as well.
“Right now, all I’m really focused on is learning the playbook,” Meinerz said when asked about his position in May. “That’s crucial, and not only learning it from one position. I’m definitely trying to learn it from both guard [positions] and center.
“As an interior offensive lineman, it’s kind of expected to know all three of those positions so you can slide in. It not only adds value to myself as a player, but it adds value to the team to where I can gain that trust to be able to play all three positions.”
Meinerz will get a chance to compete with Lloyd Cushenberry at center this offseason. If he doesn’t win the starting center job, Meinerz will be poised serve as one of the top backups for all three of the interior offensive line positions this fall.
