Denver turned an easy start to the schedule into early success, and give the Broncos credit. They've taken care of business like they are supposed to, and that includes Teddy Bridgewater. There is no doubt a quarterback will be in the conversation come next April, but Bridgewater's play is opening the door for who they should target. The 2022 class didn't enter the season with a Trevor Lawrence or Tua Tagovailoa. Those guys had so much early success in their careers, that their stock didn't need a major jump in development over their final year. However, this fall, every draft-eligible quarterback's stock will be heavily dependent on their continued development.

Still, with Bridgewater in place, the Broncos can take a riskier approach knowing that even if their guy didn't take that big step in 2021, they have a veteran that can help bridge the gap while they are patient with a rookie. It's similar to the situation in San Francisco with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance. So, Bridgewater's presence can allow Denver to swing for the fences on a player with immense long-term upside. Corral has incredible upside, but consistency and decision-making are areas his game needs to improve. Still, with a strong 2022, I won't be shocked if his name is being mentioned as the top signal-caller in the class.

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.
