The intrigue of Paxton Lynch knows no bounds. We wrote about the Broncos’ reported interest in him on Thursday, when it was reported that Denver officials had contacted Lynch’s high school coach. That might be wishful thinking at this point, as Lynch has already ascended to the 3rd overall spot on Rob Rang’s big board over at NFL Draft Scout.

Lynch’s size, arm, and the ridiculous success he’s had against higher level competition this year have his draft stock skyrocketing.

This is a player that will certainly be a hot commodity on draft weekend, and the Broncos would probably be extremely lucky if he’s even on the board when they pick.
