Broncos tackle Ryan Clady has been in the NFL for only three years, but he’s already done something very few players have accomplished.
Clady enters Monday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders on a 48-game start streak, meaning that he has started all 16 games in each of his first three seasons of his young career. He is the only Bronco and one of just 22 offensive linemen in NFL history to accomplish that feat.
Clady has overcome some obstacles to stay on the playing field. Last year, he had offseason knee surgery, yet came back to play in every game and serve as the team’s Ed Block Courage Award recipient. He’s been named to the Associated Press’ All-Pro team twice, and in 2009, he became just the 11th tackle in NFL history to be voted to the Pro Bowl by his second season.
The former Boise State Bronco didn’t allow a full sack in his first 20 starts, according to Stats Inc., and hopes to build upon his success as he prepares for Monday.
