Default Broncos Scheduled to work out Purdue QB Painter

Daniel Mogollon, of NFLDraftBible.com, reports the Denver Broncos are scheduled to work out Purdue University QB Curtis Painter at the university's campus Tuesday, March 17.



The Denver Broncos could be in the market for a quarterback if they pull the trigger on trading starter Jay Cutler. With that in mind, they will be in West Lafayette, Indiana to workout former Purdue signal caller Curtis Painter. Painter threw for 67 touchdowns and over 11,000 yards in his career, with his standout season coming in 2007 as a junior when he passed for 3,848 yards and 29 touchdown passes.

The St. Louis Rams have already made the trip to Purdue to workout Painter last Wednesday, two days prior to the school's Pro Day. St. Louis is expected to be in the market for a quarterback come draft weekend. Incumbent signal caller Marc Bulger has struggled the past two seasons and has issues with durability. In 2007 and 2008 Bulger threw 22 touchdowns to 28 interceptions and failed to complete 60 percent of his passes in each season.

Any team needing a quarterback would be wise to make a stop at the "Cradle of Quarterbacks" before the last weekend in April.

Your move, Bus Cook.

You hold your client out, and we will move on without him.

I loved Painter going into '08 and he really fell off. I think he could be a good pro if he ironed out his inconsistency issues. With some effort, he could be a good back up. More? Well I thought so in 2007, but now I'm not sure.

He is probably better than my grandma and Cheney, but lets set the bar a little higher than that...

Hmmmm,, not so sure here. I liek the idea of bringing in Brady Quinn a whole hell of alot better. I don't wanna start over re-building a QB, we spent tiem doing that already.

On an un-related topic could someone please share why Jake PLummer was in Denver w/ Bowlen? I never got the answer when that happened.

I think it had to do with the coach. I just heard there were lots of issues with the coach there. Wasnt he fired?

If McDaniels is going to run Cutler out of town, then this is the kind of guy Denver should be looking at drafting. The Cutler fiasco only pays off if we use the 1st round pick(s) on something else and McDaniels lives up to his own ego by turning something like this guy into a productive player.

That depends on what his issues were. He shouldn't be taken higher than that. I'd do a lot of homework on him and try and figure out why he just completely collapsed. Personally I wouldn't use more than a low fifth on him, and only then if I knew there were things you could work on.

Watching him throw the ball is really fun, though. He's pretty accurate and his release is as fast as any QB. He's got a good arm too. His short and mid range passes have a lot of zip. They say he lost both his receivers and had shoulder issues, but not all his issues this year were a result of those things.

I will say for a shotgun QB he is pretty light on his feet. I just would love to see the file on this guy and why he fell off so severely.

We need to draft him. He can "paint" up the defenses, like he does girls' faces.

Wow...I actually agree with you on something...I really doubt we are targeting a QB in the first...IF we are going to do anything it's parlay Cutler into picks for the D and groom some mid-late round QB into something serviceable.

People often agree with me more than they realize. But the times they dont are too memorable for them to admit it.

Painter is going to struggle learning the pro-style game especial when comes from taking the ball from under center and turning his back to the defense on the PA passes. He not much better then Colt Brennan for Hawaii taken in the 7th last season. That were I expect him to go.

I'm starting to like this guy. Seems like he could be a plug and play QB in the system!
