Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Wolfe, 29, has played seven seasons in Denver since he was drafted in the second-round in 2012 and told reporters Tuesday he would prefer to remain in orange and blue for the remainder of his football playing days.

Here’s the thing: If they really want Haskins, the Ohio State quarterback, the Broncos could just stay put. Let’s say Arizona goes with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray first overall. The Giants are at 6 and they should take a quarterback, but general manager Dave Gettleman may wait until the 17th pick (which he acquired for Odell Beckham). The Jaguars are at 7 and they just signed Nick Foles so a right tackle like Florida’s Jawaan Taylor could be their pick. Detroit and Buffalo are at Nos. 8-9 and if they stay put, quarterback isn’t a need. Boom, there is general manager John Elway on the clock with his pick between Haskins and Missouri’s Drew Lock. And I agree — Haskins would be an ideal fit.

The Broncos will be the only team to have two nationally televised preseason games. Dates and kickoff times for the Seahawks and Rams games will be finalized at a later date. The regular-season schedule is usually announced the week before the draft, which begins April 25.

Joe Ellis, the team’s chief executive officer, told 9NEWS at the NFL owners meetings last month that the 29-year-old daughter of owner Pat Bowlen would come to work in a senior management position with the Broncos at some point in the 2019 calendar year.

Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson spent their three years at Iowa trying to one-up each other in a friendly but fierce competition. So, why should the NFL draft be any different?

“Defense,” said Bailey on Tuesday after delivering the keynote address at the Boy Scouts’ Denver Area Council Sports Breakfast. “You’ve got to play great defense. I don’t know how much evidence you need. You saw it in the Super Bowl. Defense is how you win. Offense is great. You don’t want to turn the ball over. You don’t do that [and] you play great defense, you’re probably going to win most games. You’ve got to start on [that] side of the ball.”
