The 2019 NFL Combine is well underway this week and the Denver Broncos have decided to formally meet with several mid-round quarterback prospects. After meeting with Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien at the Senior Bowl, they also plan to meet with West Virginian quarterback Will Grier and Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham this week.
Broncos are holding formal (Elway/Fangio) interviews with 2 QBs at combine: Jarrett Stidham, Will Grier. Those two confirmed. Don't read too much into it. There will be visits from some members of Big 4 (Haskins, Lock, Murray, Jones) at team headquarters closer to draft. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 2, 2019
As Mike Klis of 9News noted, the Broncos also plan to meet with a couple of the top tier quarterbacks in the 2019 NFL Draft as draft day approaches later this offseason. That plan likely includes both Missouri quarterback Drew Lock and Daniel Jones out of Duke.
Just like last year, the quarterback position is high on the Broncos radar of pre-draft interest. The question remains as to whether or not they pull the trigger and go for another quarterback in the first round as they search for their future franchise guy.
