Well, this is at least fun to talk about…
According to Broncos insider Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the team has taken a significant liking to North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz.
In fact, Klis says he hears that the Broncos ‘love’ Wentz.
The question isn’t whether or not the Broncos like or even ‘love’ Wentz. He’s right up there with Jared Goff and Paxton Lynch among the best quarterbacks in this draft, and is nearly guaranteed to be the first QB selected right now.
Klis says the Broncos would almost certainly have to move up to the top overall pick in the draft to get Wentz, and that’s not happening. Not with the 31st pick in the 1st round. However, if Wentz slips past the Cleveland Browns and starts falling a little bit, it might be worth John Elway’s time to have a package ready in case he wants to try and move up for the North Dakota State signal caller.
Wentz is the total package at QB, the only knocks on him being the level of competition he played against at NDSU and his wrist injury from this past year. He’s looked phenomenal at every level of this offseason — Senior Bowl, Combine, and his pro day.
It’s hard for some people to get over the fact that he played at NDSU, but Wentz is truly the total package at QB. Even with Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, it would be stupid for the Browns to pass on him with the 2nd overall pick in the draft.
That said, it is the Browns…

The Broncos probably won’t be able to get Carson Wentz, but there’s no question they would want him if given the opportunity. He’s simply going to be out of their price range. If by some stroke of luck he starts falling a little bit, perhaps the Broncos could entice someone to at least listen to their offers.
And if not Wentz, perhaps another QB will start falling down the board that will entice the Broncos. The last time they had the 31st overall pick, they tried to trade up into the top 15 to take Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley before deciding the price was too high.
They wound up taking Bradley Roby at pick 31. Not bad.
The Broncos are a team to watch to be aggressive in moving on a quarterback come draft day. Stay tuned.
