Baker is certainly making the case and he’s got time to up it even more.

All we need is for this FO not to screw this up. There’s options here.


This offseason is going to be bazooka. Lots of crazy scenarios and **** to look forward to.

How did that “one scout” get a job?

It was more than one scout with those concerns this week.

Ya but Manziel? Baker doesn’t drink like that. Football has been Bakers priority. Partying was Manziels.

Mayfield walked on at Texas Tech and started as a true freshman. A year or two later he won the job at Oklahoma. Improved every season, won an award or two, yadda yadda. He's got everything you want but real size.

I’ve been on board with Mayfield and didn’t see anything this week to change my mind. On the other hand, Allen was pretty disappointing this week. The only game I've seen him play in was the bowl game. I thought he looked very good that game but his inaccuracy this week seems to match what he has been with WY.

Vance Joseph likes him? Well, that is one negative against him, considering how VJ evaluated QB play last year.

broncos are in a good position with the browns having two top picks ahead of them. The browns will find the bust in the top QBs and draft him. They've been doing it for years.

Is it true that Radio was an assistant at WYO and he still has close connections there?

I would be surprised if the draft order remained the same 1-5 .

Dmac is a ****head for thinking any head coach, not just Vance Joseph, would give a candid response in that situation.

I've been on the Mayfield train all year and I don't even get to watch that much college ball - to me he's Tebow with accuracy and without any of that crazy religious stuff...what more can you want??

He's hardworking and loves the game - so he's very different to Manziel in that respect, but people take a superficial look at the swagger and attitude and draw flimsy comparisons....either just lazy journalism or people trying to put negative spin out there in the hopes he falls to them.

I like his attitude - our offense needs attitude - I'm sick of seeing them get pushed around. And the team will fall in love with Mayfield as long as he can back it up....

Of course if you want another tall, athletic quarterback with a big arm who will take a few years to be NFL ready then yes Josh Allen is your man, but we already have that on the bench in Lynch anyway....

I watched Mayfield beat Ohio State -- second game of the year.

Don't think Mayfield will make it in the pros. Sorry, but I see bust.

The talent is there but college football is very different than the pro game.

Mayfield is drafted by the Bronco's only as a last option because the Broncos failed to get a QB before the draft. I would support the pick just because I am a Bronco fan, but I have serious doubts this guy is mature enough to handle the NFL right now.

Rosen has pro-style experience at UCLA and figures to be the type of high-ceiling talent John Elway is looking for at the position after two years of juggling Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.

This would be awesome.

another tall one,as in Peyton Manning(same height)?

Lynch,Paxton,Mayfield? Guess what they got in common? The spread offense.

Not picking a fight here, but I’m curious to see you explain the difference and detail how Mayfield’s skillset won’t translate to the NFL. I think this will be a good exercise.
