With the 26th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

In the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos traded up with the Seattle Seahawks for quarterback Paxton Lynch.

As you all know, I love this pick. I have been banging the table for Lynch for the past month and couldn't be more thrilled for it to happen.

Lynch is a great fit for Gary Kubiak's offense. He has a cannon for an arm, elite athleticism, and will compete for the starting job right away. He is incredibly raw so the Broncos will need to keep it simple for him early on. Run the ball, let the defense do their thing and put Lynch in good situations.

I love this pick, and the Broncos finally have their Franchise quarterback for year's to come.

What's your take, Broncos Country?
