While the Denver Broncos are seemingly in decent shape at quarterback, that hasn’t stopped them from evaluating the position.
Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway was asked during his pre-draft press conference Wednesday whether there were any franchise quarterbacks available for this year’s NFL Draft.
“We’re finishing up with the defensive backfield now and then once we get through that we’ll start combining everybody in the draft and start looking at them position by position,” Elway said. “We’re still going through the process of getting a chance to meet them but I’ll say this, a franchise guy hasn’t stood out yet but that’s not to say that there isn’t one there. We’re still in the process.”
Wednesday was the last day for teams to have players in for visits. However, they can still work them out next week.
The Broncos have reportedly visited with Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert, Colin Kaepernick and Ryan Mallett so far. They’ve also worked out Gabbert, Kaepernick, Christian Ponder and Jake Locker.
