Report: Broncos Looking at Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian


Well, apparently it’s not just Chris Bonner that John Elway and the Denver Broncos front office are courting and pursuing as a late-round/undrafted QB option.

Sounds like it’s getting pretty serious…

To just look at this timeline as a whole, Siemian will be one of a relatively small group of prospects coming into Dove Valley for a formal interview with the team, and that will happen on Thursday in Denver.

Then, he and quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp will have dinner on April 8th, likely in the Chicago area before his Pro Day on the 9th.

Not a bad week or two for a guy that tore his ACL last season and couldn’t participate in any offseason activities or All-Star games.

The 6-foot-3, 215 pound Siemian didn’t have any earth shattering numbers while at Northwestern. He put up nearly 6,000 passing yards in just 14 starts for the Wildcats, though he played more as a backup as well.

He appears to have a quick delivery, is willing to take some shots and risks downfield, and has the ability to pick you apart in the short-intermediate game. The Broncos are obviously covering their bases here, but they don’t typically mess around when it comes to quarterback additions.

If they like this kid, they’ll find a way to get him.

For Siemian, it’s going to be a big couple of weeks. He needs to not only prove to NFL teams that his knee is in good shape, but that he can take snaps from under center after primarily playing in a spread the last four years.
