The Denver Broncos are doing more than due diligence on this year’s quarterback class.
Even after signing Case Keenum to a two-year, $36 million deal, the team has maintained a high level of interest in the crop of quarterbacks coming out in the 2018 NFL Draft, and rightly so.
This is the best quarterback class to come along since 2012, which included Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins, Ryan Tannehill, and others.
This year’s class could have at least four players at that caliber or better, oddly with a couple of guys who are — in many ways — comparable to some in that class.
Josh Rosen, like Luck, is already a master of the pro-style offense with mechanics that have quarterback gurus and NFL evaluators drooling.
Baker Mayfield has drawn some on-field comparisons to Russell Wilson, not only for his height but also for the fact that he’s incredibly accurate with the ball, cool under pressure, and able to escape the pocket and make a big play out of nothing.
