As always, there will be at least one or two quarterbacks taken in the first round of the NFL Draft, and the Denver Broncos have been linked to one specific signal-caller.In his latest mock draft, NFL draft analyst Tony Pauline said “everything” he has heard in recent weeks suggested the Broncos would take Missouri’s Drew Lock with the 10th pick in the draft.There are questions about Lock’s ability to start right away in the NFL, but his college resume was impressive.

Elway hasn't had much success drafting quarterbacks with early picks by Ryan Wilson @ryanwilsonCBS moments ago • 3 min read Last offseason, after a 5-11 record with Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch under center, general manager John Elway went out and signed Case Keenum to a two-year, $36 million deal. Denver won six games in 2018, Vance Joseph was promptly fired and Keenum was one of the league's worst passers, according to Football Outsiders. Former Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was named the new coach last week and said during his introductory press conference that Keenum is his quarterback "right now." Elway, meanwhile, offered more specificity about Keenum's future. "[W]e've got to -- Case is probably a short-term fix -- find the long-term guy for us," Elway told Peter King of "Football Morning in America." "When we do find that guy, we've got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him … [Read more...] about John Elway says Case Keenum ‘is probably a short-term fix,’ so will Broncos target QB in 2019 NFL Draft?
Buffalo went to the playoffs last season for the first time since 1999; now they're more likely to earn the top-overall pick by Ryan Wilson @ryanwilson_07 moments ago • 7 min read The Bills won nine games last season and advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 1999. So there were reasons for optimism this offseason -- fix the offensive line, add a playmaking wide receiver and find a franchise quarterback and Buffalo could build on its '17 success. After a demoralizing loss the Ravens in the season opener, the Bills could have a better chance at the first-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft than playing football in January. The defense was exposed by Joe Flacco and the offense was even worse; second-year quarterback Nathan Peterman finished 5 of 18 with two interceptions when coach Sean McDermott pulled him 34 minutes into the game. In three career starts, Peterman has been benched twice and left the other game early because of … [Read more...] about Race for 2019 NFL Draft No. 1 pick: Bills make case for NFL’s worst team after demoralizing start

Arnie Stapleton, Ap Pro Football Writer Updated 5:17 pm CDT, Thursday, August 30, 2018 DENVER (AP) — It's like old times in the AFC West. Jon Gruden glowering on the sideline. Philip Rivers surrounded by co-stars. An air-it-out quarterback in Kansas City. Von Miller sauntering around Denver again thanks to the arrival of a new pass rush partner in Bradley Chubb. Widely regarded as the best defender in the draft, Chubb, the No. 5 pick overall, teams with Miller, Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett to form a fearsome front ready to rankle the likes of Rivers, Patrick Mahomes II and Derek Carr, and reclaim the division crown they used to own when Peyton Manning was around. The Broncos have a bona fide QB again themselves with the free agent signing of Case Keenum, who's out to prove his breakout 2017 season in Minnesota was no fluke. He'll have to navigate a new division that features some of the league's best pass-rushing duos ready to wreck game plans and quarterbacks … [Read more...] about NFL 2018: Turn-back-the-clock time in AFC West
