Scouting 2012 Players Poll – Denver Broncos looking for Quarterback


This list that follows is meant to be my personal amateur analysis on QBs available in the 2012 Draft with information about the professional general draft projection and my (again, amateur) analysis about who fits Denver needs and in which round should be draft by the Denver Broncos.

He would have been the Broncos pick at 25 if Manning wouldn’t join Broncos family. No he could still be the pick but is more unlikely since the team will be looking for an impact player.

2nd

1st

Russell Wilson

He’s a gamer. He knows hoe to throw the ball, can scramble. Does not have a cannon arm and should learn more how to read defenses and be more a pocket passer but he has upside and can be used right now in non conventional NFL offenses. He could be one of the steals of this draft.

3rd – 4th

Underrated. If the Broncos will be looking to QB in the middle rounds, he’s the one that reflects the QB mold John Elway is looking for: big arm, pocket passer with ability to scramble a little bit. He has to be developed but has all the tools to sit for a couple of years and then be ready to take off.

5th – 6th

4th

Brock Osweiler

ArizonaState

Jr

242

He’s still raw. From an Athletic point of view he has everything a QB need to succeed in the NFL. Still he needs to learn and looks more comfortable throwing the ball deep than in a short range…due IMO by the fact that he has to learn to reed defenses and do a better job with his timing.

3rd

5th

Ryan Lindley

San DiegoState

rSr

229

He has a strong arm but still is inconsistent with his decision making. The footwork also has to be more consistent to allow his throw the ball with a better motion increasing his accuracy. Too much of a developmental prospect to be interesting in the middle rounds forDenver.

4

6th

Case Keenum

Houston

rSr

06-ene

208

He has a quick delivery but still is a developmental guy. IMO has more upside than what projected by professional analysts. He had a great career atHoustonand battle back injuries. I won’t bet against him.

Big developmental guy with a big arm. Could be worth a look in training camp.

Does not have a big arm and in slightly undersized. If he goes undrafted, and I think he will,Denverbrings him to the training camp and see what he has.

B.J. Coleman

He’s a developmental prospect that has all the physical skills to make it in the NFL. He needs a to find a team that believes in him and make everything possible to let him develop.

5

No

Ryan Tannehill

He won’t be there when the Broncos select at 25.

1st

Kirk Cousins

rSr

214

He has to do a better job reading defenses. Does not have a cannon arm. I think he’s a lesser prospect on John Elway’s list than other on this list. And he is the 4th QB on John Gruden list….

2nd – 3rd

No

Incredible how for QB you pass from being the biggest man to a dime a dozen at the end of the college career.Mooredoes not have the size, at the moment, to play in the NFL. Neither he has a big arm. Anyhow he could be one of the most polished passer in this year class and he’s a proven winner. Somebody will select him between the 6th and the 7th round.

6th – 7th

No

Austin Davis

He does not have a big arm.

7th – FA

No
