“I think it’s exciting,’’ said starting inside linebacker Todd Davis, one of just six players from the Broncos’ 2015 Super Bowl title team. “Especially with the new head coach and new coaching staff and new defense to learn, I’m excited to get in there and learn it as quickly as possible."

“ … That position is always one where you’re going to look at everything and that means getting all of the information we can so we can be ready for whatever happens during the draft," said Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway. "… Would we take one? We want the right guy for all of our picks."

“Everyone thinks they’re a quarterback expert and that’s the hardest position to play,” the Broncos coach said during a breakfast with his fellow NFL coaches at the league’s annual owners meetings in Phoenix. “It’s the most important position to play in all of sports, not just football. That is probably the most (difficult to evaluate).”
