The Denver Broncos added two new quarterbacks to their roster for 2012, with the blockbuster signing of future first-ballot Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and former CSU product Caleb Hanie. But it appears the Broncos are not done adding talent at QB in 2012.
The Broncos organization, largely guided by Hall of Fame Broncos legend John Elway, knows that quarterback is the number one position on the football field. You can never have enough talented guys to come in if the unthinkable happens and your quarterback is knocked out for the season, or even his career.
Elway, the Broncos VP of Football Operations, told The Denver Post this past week, regarding quarterbacks, that "it's an important position in putting your team together, and we want to be as strong as possible on the roster in as many spots as possible. We know what we have in Peyton and we're excited, but we're always going to look at the quarterbacks."
Elway has brought in several QBs to work out with the intention of adding one in the upcoming 2012 NFL draft that begins this Thursday, April 26, 2012.
Let's take a look at the top-five candidates the Broncos are considering, as interviewed by former NFL coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden, at his annual Quarterback Camp.
