Following the circus that is the NFL Combine, the next step in the Denver Broncos’ evaluation period begins as their attention now turns towards pro days. And while some arms dazzled at the combine, some decided to pass altogether, only deepening the mystery regarding whom the Broncos may consider at No. 5 overall.

Recapping the action at the NFL Combine is ‘Broncos Blitz’ podcast hosts Ronnie K and Shawn Drotar, who go over each of the quarterbacks set to go early in the NFL Draft and discuss the criticism that each of the prospects have been facing.

  • Josh Allen (Wyoming) and the criticism of his accuracy.
  • Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) and his cocky attitude.
  • Josh Rosen (UCLA) and his leadership skills at the next level.
  • Sam Darnold (USC) and his turnover prone play.
  • Lamar Jackson (Louisville) and his style of play in the NFL.

The 2018 NFL Draft is a pivotal one, and hitting a home run is of the utmost priority for general manager John Elway. While most are in widespread agreement that there isn’t a absolute consensus top pick in this year’s draft, there are many skilled arms, each with unique talents that differ from others.

Between throwing footballs 70-plus yards, mobility, intangibles and deadly accuracy, the Broncos will have their selection of who fits the team best to lead their team in the future, even if that quarterback isn’t the most skilled of the bunch.
