It’s Wise For the Broncos To Draft a QB at #5

I’m doing collaboration and giving today’s star Andrew Mason some recognition on two platforms. He’s a great journalist.After thinking about things, I believe it’s wise for the Denver Broncos to draft a quarterback with the #5 overall selection in the NFL Draft.With last week’s acquisition of offensive tackle Jared Velheer from Arizona, this gives the Broncos a solid option-if healthy.Quenton Nelson of Notre Dame’s a popular pick on many mock drafts, but this aforementioned acquisition ensures the Broncos don’t have to address the offensive line with an early draft pick.I do appreciate Andrew Mason of Orange and Blue 760 AM in Denver’s thoughts here on the matter. Replying to @UKDenverBroncosNot nearly as many top-shelf QB prospects next year, unless something radically changes. It’s Missouri’s Drew Lock and a lot of question marks. This is the best QB year in quite a while, and it would be wise to take advantage of it.4:39 PM – Mar 22, 2018 March 26, 2018 /Sports News – Local, Sports News – National It’s Wise For the Broncos To Draft a QB at #5 22 MarAndrew [email protected] Written by Tags: Andrew Mason/De’Angelo Henderson/Demaryius Thomas/Denver Broncos/Emmanuel Sanders/Jared Veldheer/Predominantly Orange In fact, despite having Robert Griffin III (who had not busted yet) in 2012, the Washington Redskins drafted Kirk Cousins.The future saw the wisdom of that unfold, at least making Cousins fabulously wealthy at Minnesota.In any event, we know incumbent Broncos starter, Case Keenum, can do well when called upon.Nevertheless, with the Broncos giving him only a two-year deal, the stage may still be set for a young quarterback.Of all the prospects the Broncos could draft at quarterback, I like Baker Mayfield the most.I think he has sufficient athleticism to make plays when freelancing.Additionally, I think, as his Wonderlic score attests, he has the brains to master an NFL playbook.While he has committed transgressions, I believe he has “repented” and is willing to focus on his tasks at hand.If you have the opportunity to have two stud signal-callers in your stable (think the 2017 Eagles), why not go for it?That is, after all, the best way to win in the NFL in which we now live: “a quarterback’s league.”If Veldheer can do what the Broncos think he can, the offensive line should be better than 2017.If this happens, the Broncos’ offense can take a quantum leap from a paltry 2017.The skill positions are still full of studs, with wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, among others.Running back De’Angelo Henderson may finally get the opportunity he needs to excel and tight end Jake Butt may finally stay healthy.If these things materialize as the Broncos hope, a return to the playoffs could be a thing, but draft wisely!last_img read more
