Default is it safe to say we're drafting a QB this year?



new coach, new offense, new QB?

Given our focus on bringing in college concepts into the offense, yes. They are clearly planning to go after a QB early.

I think it is more likely now that we aren't going the Kubial route and are instead looking for a more progressive, modern offense.

It also buys Fangio and Elway patience with the fan base. "Growing pains" are a legitimate excuse for an underwhelming season if they commit to playing Will Gri- I mean, the rookie, early.

I'm ok with a rookie if he plays Week 1.

But i actually wonder if we move on from Case now. Gary was his biggest supporter. We'd save 10 mil off the cap.

Bring in a vet for a 1 yr deal to help the rookie out. But i think we're pretty confidently going QB round 1 now. Everything points to it, if not i think the pick would be Devin White.

But I still don't think Elway wants someone who doesn't fit the "prototype". So probably Lock.

Have Keenum restructure. 8 million off the base, 2 million bonus for each playoff game he starts and an extra 2 million if they get a bye week 1 of the playoffs. Potential to earn all 8 million back if Broncos make the superbowl.

What about a deep out? I have yet to see him throw one. All I have ever see him throw are those beautiful deep bombs... He is interesting and will be fun to watch for sure, I'm just not sure he is a true NFL QB.

Not an out, but here's a comeback from the opposite hash.

If they draft a quarterback in the first round, they better play him for a decent amount of the games his rookie year, and I'd rather see him play week 1. Just clear the way for him. Forget that make him earn it crap. As bad as Keenum is, he's going to be better than a rookie QB, so the rookie will probably not beat him out. That means another year of Keenum. They need to be done with him. Don't have him in there keeping the seat warm, because if he's decent, when will the rookie get in? Take the cap hit, which is also a cap savings, and go with a rookie QB next year.

That doesn't sound like a good deal for Keenum. He probably won't see those incentives.

Isn't a good $10 million of his 2019 salary already guaranteed? He can get cut, walk away with his money, and sign somewhere else as a backup and make a decent amount. Probably more than taking a pay cut to stay with the Broncos.

Give AZ an offer they can't refuse to get Murray at #1. If not, sign Foles.

Lock ready to start?

Use the #10 on a blue chip DT or 3 down backer. Come back into the bottom of the first or use the #2 on QB in ‘19.

Then plan on drafting a QB high again in ‘20. How high depends on how well the ‘19 pick progresses.

errr no way murray goes #1 overall, hell he wont even be the 1st qb taken in the draft , his size hurts him badly, i see his draft stock falling from his size the way Russell Wilson's did

He's 0-600 with 6'7" QB's so a foot reduction can't hurt.

Elway is definately looking for a QB. He & Fangio both said that Keenum is the QB, for now. That’s code for “until we find an upgrade”. Just ask Tebow about that.

I think Elway has his eyes on some college QB’s. If he has two or three he would be good with in a particular round then build your draft around that. If it’s best to move up or down, then you move up or down, and sometimes you do both. Also, get some OL help and studs on defense, and we are set to go.
