As I wrote earlier in the 2013 season, I don’t think the Broncos are done looking at quarterbacks.

Every year in the draft, teams will take a look at mostly all positions, but I think even with guys like Brock Osweiler and Zac Dysert developing, the Broncos would consider looking at another QB prospect in this year’s draft because of the depth and experience of the guys who have their names in the pool.

One guy the Broncos have already met with is Clemson’s Tajh Boyd, one of the most prolific passers in all of college football over the last three seasons. Not only has Boyd racked up numbers through the air, he’s also a pretty good runner for the QB position.

The Broncos saw up-close and personal what a dual-threat QB can do to you in the Super Bowl, and especially one that can also beat you by making smart decisions in the passing game.

One of the knocks on Boyd is his erratic accuracy. He has a very strong arm and can make any NFL throw, but he can tend to be all over the place. He’d be a project, but there are some who believe he has huge potential at the next level if placed in the right situation.

The Broncos have gone after QBs with prototype size, like Brock Osweiler at 6’8″ 240 pounds, or Zac Dysert who is 6’3″ 221 pounds. Boyd is about 6’1″ 222 pounds, but his bulk allows him to better absorb contact.

He’s drawn comparisons to Russell Wilson and if the Broncos feel like their roster is sitting well, they would maybe try and snag Boyd if he fell to the third round.
