There are more pressing needs than quarterback. Especially with John Elway's recent comments furthering his commitment to Tim Tebow.
The issue is at backup quarterback. Adam Weber is currently under contract but won't be a better option should the Denver Broncos decide to bench Tebow.
There were talks about bringing Brady Quinn back, but a recent interview with GQ magazine may ultimately hurt his chances of remaining in Denver.
With no free agent quarterback wanting any part of the Tebow-circus in Denver, the Broncos must fill the position through the draft.
If Tebow isn't going to work out long-term, they might as well try to get the best available.
By the 57th pick Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill will be gone.
The Broncos became enamored with quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Brock Osweiler at the NFL Combine over the weekend.
Sunday the Denver Post wrote:
"Weeden and Osweiler figure to both go in the second round, no later than the top-half of the third. Each would make sense as back up to Broncos starting quarterback Tim Tebow."
I don't foresee Weeden hanging around long enough either. But Osweiler would be a more than capable backup. The pick is very logical as both a short-term solution and a potential long-term if need be.
Another suitable candidate: Kirk Cousins in Round Three
