Each week leading up to the 2019 NFL draft, we will be breaking down a position of need for the Denver Broncos along with the top prospects at those positions – their strengths, weaknesses, draft range and how they might fit in with the Broncos. Today, we start with the quarterbacks. The Broncos have two quarterbacks on their roster – Garrett Grayson and Joe Flacco. The team’s trade for Flacco just became official Wednesday, but the agreement has been in place almost a month now. Asked how Flacco might fit in with his new team after coming over from the Baltimore Ravens, Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway praised his new starter’s arm strength, winning track record and high usage under center. To that last point, Elway said that Flacco fits the system that the team plans to run offensively under new coordinator Rich Scangarello. That last part is important to consider for whatever quarterback the Broncos might draft. It appears … [Read more...] about 5 quarterbacks the Broncos should consider in the NFL draft — and how they would work in Denver

Can Broncos get the No. 5 (or better) pick in the 2019 NFL draft? Kiz: How low can the Broncos go? After a 19-17 loss to the Texans, Denver enters the bye week, when we offer farewell kisses to any hope of a .500 season. I know general manager John Elway makes a bitter-beer face at the prospect of drafting early in the first round, but the Broncos need to take that medicine. So what’s the best draft position Denver can dream about, and will it be good enough to get a franchise quarterback? O’Halloran: Let’s put a target on the Broncos’ final record being 5-11 with wins over Cleveland and Oakland. That puts the Broncos behind the Raiders, Buffalo, the Giants and Arizona. The Bills and Cardinals will be open for trade business since they drafted Joshes Allen and Rosen, respectively, last year. The Giants must take a quarterback if they haven’t traded for one by late April. The “best” case position for the Broncos is Nos. 5-10. Kiz: With an 8-17 … [Read more...] about Kiszla vs. O’Halloran: Can the Broncos lose their way into a top-five NFL draft pick?
Pinpointing the best draft prospects who'd make sense for the 0-3 teams early in the 2019 NFL Draft by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com moments ago • 10 min read We aren't to October yet, but it's not too early to at least take a peek at some major draft needs for teams that currently appear to be destined for one of the first few picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Raiders haven't trailed before the start of the fourth quarter in any game but are somehow 0-3. The Texans have been competitive but offensive line issues have held them back en route to losing their first three outings. Josh Rosen finally will take the starting job from Sam Bradford in Arizona, and the Cardinals are another team with offensive line problems.Let's identify the most glaring issues for the three current 0-3 teams and pinpoint some of the top prospects at the biggest positions of need for those clubs. Oakland Raiders The Raiders head into Week … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL Draft: Top prospects the NFL’s 0-3 teams need to monitor closely
This American Athletic Conference runner is a big play waiting to happen every time he steps on the field by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com 6m ago • 4 min read You might not have noticed, but there's a college running back who's averaging 12.2 yards per carry on 58 attempts through four games in 2018. It's Darrell Henderson from Memphis ... and he averaged a hefty 8.9 yards per carry on 130 attempts a season ago. But how good of an NFL Draft prospect is he? Glad you asked. I'll cover that here. But before I answer that question, let's check out some ridiculous plays he's put on film while playing for the Tigers. I'll start with a run in 2017 against SMU that was actually called back due to a holding call. It's an important play to showcase Henderson's skills because after bouncing to the outside, he subtly cut back upfield and flipped on the jets for what would've been a long score had it not been for the … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL Draft: Here’s the home-run hitting sleeper running back prospect you need to know

That set the stage for a wild and eventful week of college football. With the games behind us, here is a dive into how NFL draft prospects fared in their bouts, whether good or bad. 5. Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma – Stock down Sometimes there are circumstances beyond a player’s control that limit his production. That seemed to be the case for Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown this week. Oklahoma squeaked out a win against a frisky Army team Saturday. In the near loss, Brown failed to record a catch even with overtime. Most will point to the fact that the Sooners only had 15 minutes of total possession with … [Read more...] about NFL Draft stock watch: Benny Snell heating up; Drew Lock or Justin Herbert?
