Josh Allen is the biggest, perhaps the most prototypical NFL quarterback, size-wise. The former Wyoming Cowboy has seen his stock rise sharply since his Senior Bowl appearance, where he did more than hold his own. Allen played his college ball not too far from Denver, about 130 miles away. Allen has a big arm, is fairly mobile, and just needs some experience.
Less prolific as former small school prospect, Carson Wentz, Allen has some similar skills. He is not as polished of a passer or decision-maker, but he certainly looks the part of an NFL starter. Allen may need extra coaching and time, but his upside is undeniable.
The Broncos have been solid defensively, other than their points allowed per game. The offense, on the other hand, has been anemic, especially through the air. Paxton Lynch, their first round pick from two years ago, doesn’t seem to be panning out as a signal caller. Time to find the future.
The Broncos could use help at other positions, offensive line for sure, but settling their quarterback situation seems like priority one. Again, waiting until Round Two will cost them a lot at quarterback, not so much at guard or tackle, where there’s some depth but no sure-thing prospects.
