Default So with Orton gone and Elway scouting, who do the Broncos draft?

Who do we bring in, regardless of how you feel about Tebow? Do we draft a top seed QB and have that person challenge Tebow? Or do we avoid an early round pick and maybe just go after another veteran?

The Broncos are already running a spread offense, if they draft a QB why not RG3? I don't think the Broncos will draft a QB in the first round if they continue to win but we shall see....

Put a big, nasty, physical corner opposite Champ on this defense and we are going places.

RG3 going top 15. Foles isnt real mobile Elway wants an athletic qb.

Gotta see how these last 6 play out.

I know this is a joke thread but those choice are ridiculous. Barkley & RG3 could easily be top 5 depending on whose taking where....All 3 certainly go top 10 with Jones just outside of that.

If Foles is there in the late 40's it wouldn't shock me to see them pull the trigger.

1st rounder needs to be one of the CB's or MLB....Period.

There was never any chance that he was going to be a late 1st, early 2nd.

Am I wrong or has Elway and Xanders been scouting all of the above? Why would they waste their time going to their games if they aren't seriously considering an early round qb pick?

If Elway and Xanders are our professional scouts, we're in some serious trouble.

Because if they draft a QB early, it sure as **** won't be to keep the option.

People are also still working under the assumption that the passing game does not open up at all next season, which is a specious assumption.

I wouldn't be so sure about that....It's possible that 8-9 of the top 10 are all on offense.

4 QBs, 2 WRs, 2 OTs & maybe Richardson?

12-16 is where the DBs and LBs will start coming off the board.

Does anyone really believe that they are scouting? That's usually done by a staff of scouts with alot of videotape with a formal evaluation process.

It seems to me like these guys are probably developing contacts.

I think that with RGIII's recent performances, and the perceived success of Cam Newton there's a high possibility that RGIII is the 2nd QB off the board.

Because they're both heavily involved in the evaluation process.

Are they sitting there typing out scouting reports? No. But they've received a lot of information from their scouts on these guys by this point and clearly wanted to see them in live fire situations for themselves while they still have an opportunity and good on them for that.

Fwiw:

Current ranking of all draft prospects:
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings

I think based on our current w/l were projected to pick around 17. I think kirkpatrick will be top 5 but I imagine there will be 2 or 3 of the above qb's available. As someone else mentioned, its unlikely that 5 of the top 17 teams will be desperate for a new qb

I think that people concerned with scouting should look at where these guys are spending their time (probably in their offices with tape):

Keith Kidd - Director of Pro Personnel
Matt Russell - Director of College Scouting
Anthony Kelly - Assistant Director of Pro Personnel
Lenny McGill - Assistant Director of College Scouting
Adam Peters - National Scout
Dave Bratten - College Scouting Coordinator/Mountain Area Scout
Eugene Armstrong - Mid - South Area Scout
Scott DiStefano - Midwest Area Scout
Cornell Green - Southwest Area Scout
Nick Schiralli - Atlantic Area Scout
