4 QBs the Denver Broncos could target in the Senior Bowl
The Denver Broncos have a presence at the 2022 Senior Bowl and could be on the lookout for some of the draft’s top quarterback prospects.
After an exhaustive head coaching search that took general manager George Paton and his hiring committee all over the country, the Denver Broncos top decision-maker (not John Elway, for those who still don’t know that) got boots on the ground in Mobile, AL, for the week of festivities and practices at the 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl.
While a large number of prospects from the 2022 Senior Bowl will make sense for the Denver Broncos in terms of their variety of needs, the quarterback position is always going to be in focus until it’s not.
Denver Broncos targeting QBs at the 2022 Senior Bowl?
The Denver Broncos are not going to leave any stones unturned as they approach a QB search yet again in the 2022 offseason.
In 2021, George Paton was flying around to a variety of pro days, looking at Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, and Justin Fields before ultimately passing on QBs altogether.
This offseason, he has even more of a chance to see these guys in person as it seems like COVID rules will be at least a bit relaxed compared to last year, and Paton will also have his head coach to go along with him this time around.
Nathaniel Hackett was brought into Denver from the Green Bay Packers program not just for his connection to Aaron Rodgers. Maybe not for his connection to Rodgers at all.
Hackett being hired independently of what happens this offseason with Aaron Rodgers means that a rookie QB is an option for the Denver Broncos, regardless of what the masses of NFL Draft Twitter think about this class.
So what quarterbacks could the Denver Broncos be targeting from the 2022 Senior Bowl? Let’s take a look at four names specifically.
