I like Patton and wouldn't be completely against using an early pick on him. Though, i don't see how he is both a now and future type of selection. With Thomas, Decker, Welker, Tamme, and Dreesen there isn't going to be a lot of footballs to go around. Unless there is an injury i don't think he is more than a 5th or 6th option in year #1.

I know it's just a pro-day work-out & not a private one, but I thought it was interesting that we sent our quarterbacks coaches to the Miami of Ohio proday workout to see QB Zac Dysert...

Dysert (6-foot-3 1/8, 227 pounds) went through a positional workout led by 2000 Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke, who now trains quarterbacks (including 2011 No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton and current Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden). Dysert completed 54 of 64 passes in the workout, which is a good showing when you take into account the weather conditions. Dysert is a mid-round quarterback with a lot of upside, and it will be interesting to see where he gets drafted.

Really? Why are the Broncos trying out Pirates? Do Pirates even play football?

While this is all true, with a Manning led offense, theres always enough footballs to go around. We've already gotten word that theres likely not going to be many 2 TE sets. I think Patton could step in and push Decker for some PT. At worst, he's the 4th WR and QUALITY depth.

What's distinguishes Patton from Wheaton and vice versa? To my hastily gained impression, they are always mentioned in the same breath.

He'll still play. Le'Veon Bell is not the Ron Dayne clone, by the way. Montee Ball is much more like Dayne.

Patton would be a pick for now and the future. I'd be ecstatic if we picked him.


A Big Back that doesn't play like a Big Back. I see Ron Dayne in Le'Veon Bell a lot. The only thing similar in terms of play with Ball and Dayne is they had great OL's.

Patton would be most likely the 5th or even 6th option if we drafted him.

Thomas, Decker, Welker, Tamme, Dresssen.

How is he a pick for now at all?

Not saying he's a bad player. Just someone who won't help much right now. And that is what this team is trying to do. Win now.

Patton has tremendous catching abilities. Wheaton is a burner and doesnt offer as much in the intermediate routes. Patton wont stretch the field as much as Wheaton but he'll move the chains.

Corey Lamonier is intriguing. He's quick off the edge and pound for pound one of the strongest guys. His size would still hurt him against the run. He also seems to lack backfield vision sometimes, where he can make a play but loses sight in the backfield.

If Damontre Moore or Bjoern Werner are close to where we pick though, we have to get one of them.

We don't have a 3rd quarterback on the roster after Hanie was let go. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see Elway invest in a QB anywhere from rounds 5-7, try and develop that pick, and turn a profit on him. Its what the savvy front offices seem to be doing these days, and I wouldn't doubt Elway likes the idea.

Ill add him to the list. It looks like Denver could be targeting late round QB's to come in and compete.

Since making this post i've been scanning the web pretty regularly looking for players scheduled to workout for Denver and can't find a thing. Denver and a few other teams have 1 or 2 guys that are known to have worked out or are scheduled to workout, while many other teams have 10+.

I haven't watched any of Matt Scott, but i know from watching the combine there was a lot of talk about how he is an interesting QB prospect.

I really dont understand why were bringing him in for a visit.

This front office is so confusing to follow as an avid fan.

Well, Denver does have an opening for a 3rd QB and i wouldn't have a problem if Denver used a 4th round pick or later on the position. If you're thinking about drafting a QB or picking one up even as a UDFA i think it's wise to have a good evaluation of them.

I have no problem bringing another young and talented QB onto the roster.

The more successful franchises tend to draft QBs frequently either for depth or to develop and sell.

Add in the fact that we have a #3 QB opening on the roster and it shouldn't be that surprising for an "avid fan" that we are looking at QB prospects.
