ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - New Denver Broncos' right guard Louis Vasquez has a penchant for avoiding penalties and keeping his quarterback upright.
He only committed one infraction in college - he says it was a bad call, of course - and he had one more in his four years with the San Diego Chargers, and that came on a field goal.
At 330 pounds, he's also adept at anchoring the pocket and keeping his quarterback clean, having allowed an average of just 2.75 sacks a season in the NFL, according to STATS LLC.
That, along with his terrific technique, is what made him so attractive to Broncos front office chief John Elway, who has spent his offseason trying to surround Peyton Manning with players who can help him win the next Super Bowl.
