Kyle Orton is projected by ESPN as the 22nd quarterback taken, one spot behind Cam Newton. At an average pick of 137.6, Orton won't even be drafted in most 10-team leagues.
Like Stafford, there are some concerns with Orton.
Orton no longer has Jabar Gaffney, and Demaryius Thomas is out for the season with an Achilles injury, but he still has some weapons.
Brandon Lloyd will look to have another spectacular year, and the coaching staff is pretty high on Eric Decker, although his inexperience comes into question. Eddie Royal helps Orton out as a slot receiver, and the Broncos have added some depth at running back as well. John Fox will look to build a strong running game with the one-two punch of Knowshon Moreno and new addition Willis McGahee, which will open the field for Orton.
Many are also worried that Orton will be looking over his shoulder at the other quarterbacks on the roster.
Tim Tebow, the quarterback who has been the biggest fear for those hesitant to draft Orton, has more of a chance of losing out on the No. 2 spot to Brady Quinn than he does of taking Orton's starting role. If Orton has a few bad performances, I could see him being pulled, but with the way he played last season and with a little competition to light a fire in him, don't expect Orton's play to drop off much.
