The Denver Broncos certainly have their sights set on a quarterback in the offseason — whether it be through the NFL Draft or free agency — but building pieces around that quarterback and improving the offense at the wide receiver position will be a high priority for John Elway and the Broncos’ front office. A local name to Colorado will certainly be on their radar.
The 2018 NFL Draft will feature a plethora of strong pass catchers, including Alabama’s Calvin Ridley, Southern Methodist’s Courtland Sutton and Colorado State’s Michael Gallup, just to name a few. Gallup, a consensus All-American, starred for the Rams and raised his draft stock with a strong performance at the 2018 Senior Bowl.
But free agency and possibly re-structuring players already on the roster will come first. Denver must decide what to do with high-paid veterans Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Those moves will certainly shape who the Broncos chase in the draft.
