Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Although the Broncos finished 6-10 last year, their rookie class laid a foundation for the future and provided hope of improvement. But such hope is contingent upon continued production — even more production in their second season.

Mike Munchak was jazzed enough with the game tape. But when Dalton Risner, unprompted, told him what a pleasure it was to talk shop with the No. 8 pick in the 1982 NFL draft, the Broncos’ new offensive line coach knew right away that this was a kid who didn’t skimp on his homework.

Joe Flacco loves throwing to tight ends, but I could also see the Broncos taking a quarterback here.

The bottom line is, if Elway wants to retain a player for the Broncos, a deal gets done. And all indications are that the Broncos want a deal done with Harris so he can essentially finish his career where it started as an undrafted rookie in 2011.

Because of his patience inside the pocket, decent pocket-drifting skills, and outstanding ability to win outside the original design of the play, [Kyler] Murray's the best under-pressure passer in this class. [Drew] Lock's improvisational, too, and inside the pocket isn't afraid to stand in and deliver a strike a split second before he takes a big hit. Rypien will take more sacks than you'd like because he rarely drops his eyes, but because of his experience, he knows where to throw hot against a blitz and is relatively calm under pressure. Finley, Jones, and Grier put a handful of ghastly plays on film with defenders approaching.
