Insider James Palmer Says Broncos Will Target Edge & Cornerback Early in Draft

+

After filling out the roster aggressively in free agency, building off of a very good 2021 NFL draft class, and acquiring franchise quarterback Russell Wilson via trade, the Denver Broncos still have areas they could address. But overall, this appears to be as solid a Broncos squad that has been assembled since Super Bowl 50. As Broncos Country has found out recently, though, a football team can be solid top to bottom but if it doesn't have a legitimate franchise quarterback under center, that team will likely end up dead on arrival — well before the postseason. It’s the simplest truth in today’s NFL: without a quarterback, your team is nothing. However, with a franchise signal-caller in the fold, it’s important to keep that quarterback happy and invested in the team-building process. NFL Network's James Palmer recently indicated that Broncos’ GM George Paton is doing just that with his newly acquired quarterback, whom he has been in communication with about which prospects the Broncos may be targeting with their current selections in next week's draft.
