Broncos Willing to Trade Future First-Round Picks for Quarterback

Published on

With the Broncos paying the price for their Russell Wilson mistake, they have had a quiet offseason. They are taking on more of the $85MM dead money sum this year, resulting in a lower-profile free agency compared to Sean Payton’s first in Denver. The lingering QB question follows Denver into the draft after the early waves of free agency.

Unlike other teams linked to trading up for a passer in this draft who have clear-cut bridge options like Sam Darnold (Vikings), Gardner Minshew (Raiders), or Daniel Jones (Giants), the Broncos do not. As of now, Jarrett Stidham would be Denver’s Week 1 starter, leading to a heavy expectation that the Broncos will draft a QB in Round 1.

George Paton, the GM, has made comments indicating the team is open to moving future first-rounders to trade up from No. 12 overall for a quarterback prospect if it is the right fit. This shows a willingness to address the quarterback situation despite the repercussions of the Wilson trade.

There are rumors of the Broncos exploring trade-down options in Round 1 to accumulate more assets. This strategy could still allow them to draft a top passers like Bo Nix from Oregon. The team faces a complex situation at quarterback, but they have been thorough in their evaluation of this draft’s deep tackle class.
