Denver Broncos open to possibly drafting QB at No. 5

John Elway signed a bridge quarterback this offseason, adding Case Keenum on a two-year deal. That won’t stop the Denver Broncos from possibly using the No. 5 overall pick on a quarterback.

The general manager said on The Adam Schefter Podcast Show this week he’s keeping his options open as the team ramps up its draft preparation.

That’ll be wide open, Elway said, via ESPN’s Jeff Legwold. … I’m betting we won’t know what direction we’re going to go until probably the day of [the first round] or the day before.

Jordan danced around possibilities, discussing edge rushers, Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki and avoiding crowding New Orleans’ talented backfield before turning to the quarterback position.

If you’re looking for an heir apparent, maybe give him the Aaron Rodgers treatment. Let him learn from the best for a couple years and then send him on. But I’m not putting here nor there, I’m just simply saying, Jordan said before immediately mouthing Lamar Jackson.

No, I’m saying Sheldon Rankins is from Louisville, Jordan said in a playful cover-up attempt.

We know months worth of prognostication become moot within the first couple hours of the NFL draft, but should Jackson end up in New Orleans, add football fortune teller to Jordan’s list of accolades — even if Suh didn’t want to join him.

I asked him in Orlando if he’d give up a pinky toe if it meant a guaranteed Super Bowl victory in the next seven years. He did not hesitate in his answer. ‘Right now,’ NFL Media’s Dan Hanzus noted.

Well, the pinky toe is probably the least important of all the digits down there. It’s not quite on par with Hall of Fame safety Ronnie Lott giving up one of his fingers to play in a game. Even then, we’re openly wondering whether Reid’s family would be okay with this exchange.

All or Nothing has proved to be sturdier than initially expected from a storytelling standpoint. To put it another way, the show doesn’t live or die by the success of the team being studied. NFL Films knows how to work magic, whether it’s documenting a 2015 Cardinals team that came within one victory of the Super Bowl or a dreadful 2016 Rams team that lost constantly and eventually fired the head coach. (I can still see Jeff Fisher holding his dog and waving as the team busses departed for another slaughter in Seattle. I’m not sure he’s been seen since.) patriots_013-223x223
