Broncos shouldn’t pursue a quarterback in the draft


The Denver Broncos offense undoubtedly needs some changes in 2017, and perhaps some of those adjustments will come at the quarterback position. It’s unknown if they’ll trust both Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch to carry them next season.

This team has been linked to Tony Romo, but it remains to be seen if they’ll even consider him. If they’re not in on Romo and don’t trust the tandem of Siemian and Lynch, should they look to draft a quarterback in the first round?

Well, Mark Kiszla from The Denver Post did have an interesting take at the Broncos possibly drafting Stanford quarterback Christian McCaffrey. Answering questions from a fan, Kiszla had this to say:

“If Denver wants more touchdowns, is there a player in the draft that can score in more ways than Christian McCaffrey, the pride of Stanford and Valor Christian High School?”

The Broncos may want McCaffrey, but they would be foolish to draft a quarterback in the first round. Lynch is less than a year removed from being this team’s first-round pick in 2016, and he deserves time to grow into a starting role.

Though some may have their doubts on Siemian, he should be better provided he gets more offensive line protection and receivers. He played fairly well in the given circumstances and should be trusted to do better in 2017, if he starts.

The Broncos need to look at adding another receiver or offensive lineman in the first round. Their current tandem should be enough for John Elway to avoid taking a quarterback in the first round.
