Baltimore Ravens insider and National Football Post writer, Aaron Wilson is reporting that the Broncos are working out former Dolphins QB, Seth Lobato today.

Lobato, 24, played college football at Northern Colorado, after redshirting for a year at the University of Colorado. Lobato started from 2011 until 2013, when he graduated, throwing for over 8,000 yards and accounting for 59 total touchdowns (53 passing, six rushing).

Lobato struggled with accuracy in college, completing just 53% of his passes; however, the 24-year old QB possesses a 6'6" 230 pound frame, and a very strong arm. On his pro day, Lobato ran a 4.92 40-yard dash, and 4.50 short shuttle, displaying a lot of athleticism for such a large body.

In 2014 NFL preseason action, Lobato completed 26/53 passes (49.1%) for 271 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, for a quarterback rating of 62.7. The accuracy issues from college seem to have followed him to the NFL, but there was interest in him from a few NFL teams pre-draft, and there is definite upside in his physical attributes.

The Broncos' current depth chart behind starter Peyton Manning includes Brock Osweiler, and Zac Dysert, two other big quarterbacks with strong arms. If signed, Lobato would more than likely be a future reserves/practice squad player, with the roster size moving up to 90 men at the end of the season.
