A week ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s looking like the Denver Broncos might not be looking at drafting a quarterback in Round 1, after all.
At least, that’s what one report hints at. Benjamin Allbright noted Wednesday that the “growing sense” is that the Broncos would like to move back from their current spot, which is the No. 10 overall pick.
Now, this wouldn’t necessarily keep Denver from going quarterback in the first round. Yet if Drew Lock really was their target as it’s been reported since Senior Bowl week, then there’s almost no way the Broncos would be able to land him by moving back.
If Allbright’s report does reflect reality, then it might have something to do with Joe Flacco.
The former Baltimore Ravens quarterback made comments on Tuesday that indicated he’s not interested in another situation like the one he dealt with last year.
