Call me crazy, but I think the guy in the picture is the Broncos' solution at quarterback.

Kyle Orton is an average quarterback, and even though he will have more weapons here than he did in Chicago, he is still average. But the Broncos have to draft a QB in the middle rounds, and the guy they should call up is Graham Harrell from Texas Tech.

Harrell had a very good college career; some might say it was all Michael Crabtree, but it wasn't. Previous Texas Tech QBs had very good stats but never made it to the big time, yet Harrell is a completely different player. Last year, his QB rating was an outstanding 160.4 and he threw for 45 TDs and 5,111 yards.

Some say he will never make it, but I think the Broncos should take him from the third to fifth round because he could be the perfect system quarterback.
