I think there are several ways Denver could go...

1) Take Darnold. (if still available) I agree with the poster who mentioned by the time draft rolls around, he will be considered the "most" ready to go.

2) Jackson. Very athletic and seems to be a "football player". It will take him a year to make an impact but the comparisons to Vick are real.

I would not mind either one of them. However, there is still Kelly on the roster. We are not privy to practices and meetings but I can see the coaching staff (smh) giving Kelly a serious look. Especially if Jackson is taken. I'm not suggesting Kelly as QBOTF but I do think Kelly and Jackson will be able to run the same offense. This should mean a somewhat easy transition for Jackson.

I'm too lazy to look up Siemian's contract but it's possible he will be the third QB with either one of these picks. If his contract is prohibitive, then he is gone (released) and it's possible Lynch stays. (ugh)

It's possible to see...
QB1- Kelly
QB2- Darnold or Jackson
QB3- Siemian or Lynch (I truly don't want to see Lynch at all)

Another scenario is a trade for Luck. Denver will give up their 1st in the draft (and more!)

If Luck is landed...
QB1- Luck (duh)
QB2- Kelly
QB3- (because I believe Siemian is also packaged in the trade)

On a side note...
I am a little apprehensive about Luck's shoulder and his overall health. If Denver truly tries to make this happen, I would hope (again...smh) they are convinced he's healthy.
While I really can't put my finger on it and can't validate my personal opinion, I hope they stay away from Cousins and Manning.

Iím done with QBs who need systems to produce. No more upside crap. Jackson is inaccurate. Plain and simple. Heís athletic and runs but the nfl has chewed and spit out these kinds of QBs routinely.

This team needs a day 1 starter. That has to be a FA. I donít see a day 1 starter in the draft. Rosen is about the close to it due to he has the best mechanics and actually can play from under center.

I was watching an interview of Jackson last night, and all I can say is that he makes Lynch look like a genius. Good lord...

You can start most rookies day one, as long as you accept that itís going to be rough early on.

Plain and simple.! You guys must love your agents. Are you counting the interceptions as completions as well -LJ passer rating is 151 and Darnold is 147, Rosen 146. Then add around 1500 yards rushing for you know who.

Seriously, why would you want a stationary QB with our OL? PL could move and he still got killed.

FWIW, I think getting LJ is a pipe-dream. He gone first IMO. But hey it's early...Hype all you want. Just don't let those pesky stats get in the way of it.

Darnold to me is the guy with the highest ceiling, but he's a bit raw.
What can he do when pressured in 2 secs vs 6-8 secs at OU

Stats in college? RG3 far and away better in college than Jackson. Howíd that turn out.

As far as the OL? This is how it will look in 2018? Same RT? This OL has 3 out of 5 decent to good players. Broncos fans cant understand thatís better than a lot of teams who have 0 to 2 decent OL. Bolles is progressing Leary one of the best guards in the league Paradis solid.

I dont see this staff doing that. They couldnít even give Sloter a back up role cause he had no exp. they wonít even let D Henderson see the field.

Tebow's career college passer rating was 170.8. Are you seriously using that as some sort of proof of how good an NFL prospect a guy is? Derp.

Well that just points to an over-arching issue doesn't it? Namely that we are ****ed until widespread changes take place.

Yeah. LJ has almost twice as many rushing yards in 2.5 years as RG3 in 3 years. Plus RG3 already had an ACL injury by the time he got to the league.

Bolles is still getting pushed 6 yards into the backfield.

It's either that or listening to the agents and sport writers. I prefer to think I can evaluate talent as well as any English major.

Honestly, Tebow was the OG of getting banned. Kap came along much later.

You don't draft a QB to run. You draft them to pass. Jackson has a live arm, but he's very raw in terms of his readiness for the NFL.

Called setting a pocket. Doesn't really work with a QB who doesn't know what a pocket is or how to step up into one.

So we need a new LT too?

This OL isnít as bad as people want it to be. The QBs are. Siemian came into the raiders game and I counted 5-6 seconds he was back there holding the ball. QBs should never hold it that long. They were average 2.6 or better this year which is just fine. The OL seemed to improve when Brock was in there. Wonder why.

Can it be better? Of course. G and RT. But to say itís horrendous and the reason for failure is being lazy. Thereís far worse OLs across the league yet those QBs doing work.

Do not draft one aspect based on the deficiency of another aspect of the team. I donít see any GMs drafting a certain QB because ďthe OL sucksĒ.

I like his attitude. Just doesn't look like he has all his strength. Hopefully that improves. When he sacked Brock was that setting the pocket?

Now that I know Lamar Jackson is borderline retarded, I'm really scared Elway is going to pick him...

Can you imagine if LJ was at USC/UCLA an Darnold/Rosen was at UofL? . Good times.

Coming out it was widely known he needed to bulk up and gain some strength in the NFL. His main struggle has definitely appeared to be strength-related. Fortunately that's something that can be fixed fairly easily.
