Denver Broncos: Senior Bowl quarterbacks to watch for
The Denver Broncos’ interest in Drew Lock is obvious, but what about the other QBs at the 2019 Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL?
The Denver Broncos’ front office and the coaching staff is well represented at the 2019 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, even though the coaching staff doesn’t get to be hands-on with the players as they were a year ago.
The Broncos will closely monitor both sides of the ball in this event as their head coach, Vic Fangio, is obviously one of the best defensive coaches in the game but the team’s primary needs are on the offensive side of the ball.
The main focus in this week of practices and for the game will be the quarterback position. Though this year’s class doesn’t have a guy of Baker Mayfield’s caliber playing in the Senior Bowl, there are some intriguing prospects the Broncos could find on all three days of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Jon Gruden and the Raiders’ coaching staff will be working directly with Missouri’s Drew Lock, who is considered to be the Broncos’ top target at the position at this point in time.
Gruden will also be working with Daniel Jones and Ryan Finley, two ACC passers who have a chance to start at the next level.
Kyle Shanahan’s group on the South roster isn’t as loaded as Gruden’s group, but the Broncos might pay a little extra attention to Shanahan’s group considering they just jumped through hoops to get Shanahan’s QB coach Rich Scangarello to run their offense.
If one of the South quarterbacks has a great week this week and excels at picking up and executing Shanahan’s offense, the Broncos might be intrigued by that.
Let’s take a look at the players at this position to watch this week in practices and the game on Saturday.
