Default Which QB are the Broncos Gonna Draft?

I wouldn't mind the Broncos taking Tebow in the second round or possibly a guy like Jarrett Brown later in the draft (he looks like he has a live arm).

But, I like QBs with mobility, always have (I grew up watching the Duke, really liked the Cutler pick when it happend).

Everyone knows Tebow has mechanical issues and his game may not translate well to the NFL, but he's a great leader, a good athlete and he's willing to work hard to become better. He might be a good guy to draft and let sit behind Orton and learn.

Jarrett Brown is more of a project but he's got a good arm. Would McD draft this kid thinking he can develop him? I dunno. Neither Tebow nor Brown are the type of QB McD prefers (tall QBs who stand in the pocket and throw).

If Bowlen is not full of BS, and we can believe what he said, then the Broncos are going to draft a QB. Question is, which QB and when? I personally think that the Broncos will take a QB somewhere between the 2nd and 4th round.

I think McDaniels would be more prone to draft a prototype rather than a tweener like Tebow.

Tebow is a winner though, even though I'm a Cane fan and hate his guts.

I agree, question is who is the prototype McD likes? Tony Pike?

The top rated QB's are still banged up and recovering.
Let's see if they're healthy enough by the time they do their pro debut.
Tebow would be my preferred pick...

Dan LeFevour in Round Two....at least that is what I want.

I'd take Jevan Snead in Round Three....I know he had a crappy 2009 season, but he is a very talented QB and worth a gamble.

I've been looking at the QBs lately and I feel it's a better class than it's being given credit for.

Funny you mention Dan LeFevour. Some of the local radio sport talk shows are high on him...

I see that Woody just wrote an article singing his praises.

I've been talking about him for a few years....I live in the middle of MAC country, so I've gotten to see him play a lot of games.

I know that LeFevour is a lot higher on some draft boards than is being let on.

The 4.66 he ran at 6'3 and 230 pounds did not hurt his stock at all.

John Skelton, Fordham. Has the height (6'5) and weight (235). Good arm, moves around like Flacco.

Tony Pike reminds me of Joe Flacco at times.

I like Pike as a prospect, but he is as brittle as a pretzel rod.

I had NFL Network on all day today when I was doing chores and homework and whatnot. They showed him after he ran the 40...the dude has chicken legs. I think he will make a good QB in the NFL, but he would need to pack on another 25-35 pounds of muscle. I would not be upset if he became a Bronco.

If the Rams take Bradford with the first pick, then the remaining top 3 QBs will go pretty quickly IMHO. Clausen will go next then maybe LeFevour or McCoy and all possibly in the first round.

If Bradford is not taken first, then only two QBs will probably be taken on the first day: Bradford and Clausen. This drops a relatively deep QB class to the second round where LeFevour and McCoy will probably go next.

We stand a good chance to get a quality QB.
The only teams in front of us with QB's needs are the Rams like you've mentioned and the Skins.
Clausen is projected to go to the Rams and Bradford to the Skins.
The question is, would we take a QB that high at 11th?
Who could be there for us to pull the trigger on him?

I'm not discarding Tebow just yet. A lot of work for him to do to improve his draft position. A lot will depend on how he progresses.
Not saying the Broncos will take him at #11 but I wouldn't pass on him if still on the board in the 2nd round...

I mentioned LeFevour myself awhile ago. He started all 4 years in college too, so has plenty of experience. Beware the guys that have only started a year or 2 in college at QB. The NFL is full of draft busts at QB like that.

LeFevour has to be higher on some of these draft boards than is being let on, would love to see the Broncos draft him.

The only one on that list we even look at is Skelton.

LeFevour has a weak arm and is a west coast style QB.

McCoy is too small.

I wonder if McD's gonna pull a "I'm smarter than everyone else" move and draft some unknown QB out of Middle Tennessee State Polytech & Ag. school in like the 3rd round.

Pull a Shanny.
