Denver has sure found themselves in a mess after having to start Kendall Hinton at Quarterback against New Orleans. In fact, not much has gone right at Quarterback for the Broncos. Denver signal-callers have the worst completion percentage in football at 55.6 percent, while having thrown the most interceptions in football with 19. Having said that, it's natural to think they could make a change at QB. There are also some who question Drew Lock's fit in Pat Shurmur's scheme.


I'll say this: if the Broncos end up with one of the top two picks, I think they have to take Trevor Lawrence or Justin Fields. If Fields slides to them later in the top 10 for some reason, they need to take him. However, I'm not ready to use a top-ten pick or replace Lock with one of the remaining options like North Dakota State's Trey Lance, Alabama's Mac Jones, or BYU's Zach Wilson.

If they can't grab a veteran or nab one of those top two, I'd suggest giving Lock another year to grow with hopefully a healthy cast of players around him. Having said that, it would be wise to look on the defensive side of the ball to get younger, and Parsons is arguably the top defender in this class. He would instantly upgrade this front-seven, giving Vic Fangio a versatile playmaker to use in a variety of ways.

BRONCOS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
