Report: Broncos High On Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson


According to a report from TFY Draft Insider and contributor Tony Pauline, the Denver Broncos are expressing a lot of interest in former Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson, who held a Pro Day on Monday.

The Broncos are probably expecting this to be Peyton Manning’s last season with the team, but their interest in Grayson could also spell the end for Brock Osweiler with the Broncos. Osweiler is also in a contract year with the team. Pauline dropped a humongous bomb after the QB’s pro day.

“The team that seems to be highest on Grayson is the hometown Denver Broncos. The feeling is Grayson is the most capable of running the system that Gary Kubiak will employ in Denver; a system similar to the one Grayson ran at Colorado State. He also has the arm strength necessary to get the ball through the cutting winds that often blow through the Mile High City. There’s also a strong belief Brock Osweiler, who’s in the final year of his rookie contract, won’t be with Denver after this season.”

If the Broncos want Grayson, there’s going to be competition. According to Pauline, the Browns took him to dinner and other teams have lined up private workouts. Denver would probably have to over-draft him a bit, perhaps with their second round or even to move up a little higher and get him in the middle of the second round.

That’s a hefty price to pay, but if you find a quarterback you like, you have to pay it.

Grayson has excellent athletic ability, familiarity with the Rocky Mountain Air, and he’s also a perfect fit for Gary Kubiak’s style of offense. If Denver is going to replace Brock Osweiler with another QB of the future, Grayson would be an excellent choice.

This move, however, would leave a bitter taste in many fans’ mouths. Osweiler will sit for a fourth year, so if the Broncos plan on moving on after the season, they should trade him to the highest bidder and try to get Grayson in the draft, or whatever quarterback they choose.

They will also still have Zac Dysert in the fold this offseason.
