NGT: Article on Elway and the 2018 QB draft class

cosmicj : 5/12/2018 9:38 am
I thought there were some interesting comments from Elway in the link, both about how his thinking about the QB position has evolved and some commentary on the Broncos evaluation of the prospects. It seems as if their front office was divided about the QBs, like the Giants, and ended up passing on them, like the Giants.

Brock Ostweiler and Paxton Lynch haven't exactly set the world on fire

Elway wasn’t in the position to draft “top tier” QBs as he was this year. And he passed at 5. Of course he might have liked Mayfield and Darnold and didn’t have the opportunity to take them without a trade-up
It's a fluff piece

from before the draft. Could have been just as much about disinformation as anything else.
Paxton Lynch got hurt almost immediately

When he became the starter. He didn’t start before that because he came from a completely spread offense. Jury is still out on him.
