According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis, the Denver Broncos will have pre-draft visits with quarterback prospects Josh Allen and Josh Rosen. Klis also notes that the Broncos will have a contingent at Wyoming’s Pro Day on Friday to watch Allen toss the ball around.

The Broncos brought everybody including GM John Elway, front office member Gary Kubiak, Head Coach Vance Joseph, and the rest of the Broncos decision makers and some coaches to watch Rosen last week at his Pro Day. The same contingent also saw Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield put on a show the day prior. They’re not expected to have the same turnout for Josh Allen, but there will members of the Broncos present for his workout on Friday.

As for the visits, expect Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Lamar Jackson and probably a few other second-tier quarterback prospects(Falk, Rudolph, and Lauletta) to visit the Broncos before the NFL Draft here in a little over a month.

To put it simply, the Broncos are in the market for a quarterback. The big question is, will they like one enough to A. Trade up for one if possible, or take one of the remaining big four prospects at 5(If available). That is probably what they are figuring out here with these visits.

As it stands now, neither Josh Allen or Josh Rosen will be there at pick 5 when the Broncos make their selection. It’s pretty much a given that Sam Darnold will be the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and that quarterback's likely go at the second and third picks. The Giants(or Bills) will go Allen or Rosen and the Jets will take whoever the Giants/Bills pass on. This should drop the remaining QB to the Broncos.

Now, Mayfield could go to the Jets at three which would drop one of Allen or Rosen to the Broncos at 5, so they have to do their due diligence on all these guys. Hell, the could call up the Giants after one of these visits and try to get the second overall pick to make sure they get an Allen or Rosen.

There is a lot of time left and the Broncos are not done swinging and(hopefully not) missing on quarterbacks. Who and when they get that quarterback will be the big question between now and the draft.
