In the process of overhauling their quarterback position, the Denver Broncos have not ruled out drafting a signal caller with the fifth selection in next month’s draft.
Despite the recent signing of Case Keenum, GM John Elway had this to say about the team’s approach regarding selecting a quarterback come draft day.
“That’ll be wide open,” Elway said, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. ” … I’m betting we won’t know what direction we’re going to go until probably the day of [the first round] or the day before.”
As a whole this offseason, Denver has focused on some of the top quarterbacks in the coming draft. That includes UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield.
In addition, Elway also watched Sam Darnold of USC and Josh Allen of Wyoming perform in their bowl games.
As for Keenum, the Broncos signed him to a two-year deal with the assumption that he will be their starter this season. But, it always helps to have good depth at quarterback. This is something the Broncos definitely need after watching last year’s trio of quarterbacks crash and burn.
