  • Which 2019 QB Prospect fills you with the least dread.

    Being in a position to draft based on need instead of just taking the best player available really sucks. But, that is where we are right now. Keenum was never intended to be a long-term option and has played like the Journeyman back up QB that is likely his ceiling. Chad Kelly gave us something to pin unrealistic hopes on for a time, but that time has passed.

    So, unless the Bronco's talent evaluators are just completely down on every member of the 2019 QB class, I think it a fair assumption we will go after one in the first two rounds. (Provided some insane miracle doesn't happen to the Broncos in free Agency)

    These guys are currently listed as the top options on Walterfootball.com
    There is a fair chance that one of them will be a Bronco in April. Which one would upset you the least.

    Haskins probably but theres some concerns with him too. You'd probably have to jump into the top 3 for him if he comes out.

            I like Jones in the first, but if they went DL in the first I would be happy developing Stidham in the second. Thorson is interesting but I have concern on his arm strenght.

                  Yeah, I would prefer not to be caught in a tug of war between the MLB and the NFL over a prospect. Particularly one that we spend a first or second round pick on.

                    If he decides to play football and is a 1st rd pick there wouldn't be a tug of war. He'd be a football player. It's his favorite sport.

                      There is still the matter of the contract that he signed with the A's. Oakland is notoriously cheap. If he chooses football, they are going to pursue reclaiming his signing bonus. Agents are already involved. It isn't going to be as clean as you think.

                        Would love Kyler Murray, but I'm all in on Daniel Jones.

                        Switched to the bowl game yesterday, saw a beautiful touch TD pass in the end zone and the commentators were saying how much he looks like Peyton. Lets get him!

                          Truly a tough choice for Murray.

                          Go to the MLB and play in the worst ballpark in the major leagues, playing for peanuts.

                          Or get early onset CTE.

                            It's not going to be as messy as you think since he hasn't been paid the money yet.

                            Why Heisman winner Kyler Murray should ditch baseball and go for the NFL
                            It’s true, the Athletics already have agreed to pay Murray a $4.6 signing bonus. Murray has to report to spring training next year to receive it.

                            That $4.6 million would have to last Murray several years if he chooses baseball. Murray first has to report to the minor leagues, where he’ll be making peanuts (starting around $1,500 per month) and living off fast food and long bus rides. Cooper said that Murray has fewer at-bats than most of his peers, and in a best-case scenario, could fly through the minor leagues in two years and be ready for MLB in 2021.

                            Then Murray would make a league-minimum MLB salary for his first three seasons — around $600,000 per year — wouldn’t hit arbitration until 2023 at the earliest, and wouldn’t hit unrestricted free agency until 2026, when Murray is 28 and turning 29 years old.

                            And that’s a best-case scenario. Murray could dwell in the minor leagues for a long time, or never make it at all. It could take him 8-10 years of pro ball to get that big free agent contract. Getting drafted No. 9 overall means little.

                            “There are very, very few sure things when you talk about the progression from being drafted to making the majors,” Cooper said. “And when you sign a long-term contract extension, usually those don’t come around until
                            SI: Why teams think he will enter the NFL Draft
                            Most major college programs submit their top underclassmen to the College Advisory Council for evaluation at the request of the player. One scout familiar with Oklahoma’s program says that the school usually only submits the names of players they really think will come out for the draft. Through an Oklahoma spokesperson, Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley declined to comment on how OU compiles the list it submits to the CAC.

                            According to NFL operations, programs can submit up to five players to be evaluated each year; requests to submit more than five are determined on a case-by-case basis. This year, Oklahoma submitted four players for evaluation.
                            Several scouts who visited Oklahoma this season came away with the impression that Murray was going to enter the NFL draft

                              There is no guarantee that Murray will ever play in the Oakland. There is better chance he will get stuck in Double AA or Single A ball. Lots of flame outs in the baseball.
