Paxton Lynch, QB

Though the Broncos are only nine days into training camp, it’s unfortunate that Paxton Lynch has been unable to separate himself very distinctly from Chad Kelly, no matter what your thoughts are of Kelly.

Even if you think Kelly is going to be a very good player in the NFL, Lynch is a former first-round pick and the Broncos are counting on his development.

But having patience, even with a raw quarterback, is difficult.

Lynch was frustrating at the first practice I attended in person, constantly tucking the ball and running after his first read, but he was actually really good in the second practice (day five) I was there for.

Since then, it sounds like things have been a mixed bag at best for Lynch. At this point in his third training camp, I expect things to be mostly good and for there to be noticeable signs of not only progression but consistency.

Perhaps some of that will come about in game situations.

It still seems like Lynch is a long way from being ready to start for a championship caliber team, which is raising some questions about whether or not the Broncos will look to a veteran quarterback before training camp is over.
