    He is so not a rushing qb by far.

    You're probably right. He will just pick yet another "prototypical " that will suck and we will continue our quest to find another qb since 1998. Broncos are super conservative. I miss the time when our offense was exciting to watch.

    Amen 🙏 to that.

    He is closer to Russell Wilson in style than he is Lamar Jackson. Only difference is he is a much better runner than Wilson when he does run. For example, during Wilson's Jr. year, he had 143 rushing attempts for 435 yards. Murray must have carried the ball well more than that, right? No sir, he only carried the ball 140 times, but for 1001 yards. He seems like a smart dude, so hopefully he'll be able to learn to slide as intelligently as Wilson does. However, I don't believe he'll be the Broncos qb. I'm rooting for him to prove people wrong though.

    If Murray has the skills and can get it done in the NFL, who cares about his size? People said Russell Wilson was too small. They said Mayfield was too small. They said Phillip Lindsay was too small for the NFL. All three of those guys are getting it done, big time. Yes, being short can be a hindrance at QB, but there are ways to work around it and it certainly hasn't seemed to affect him in college.

    To be clear, I'm not advocating whether or not the Broncos should draft Murray. I'm just saying that "he's small" shouldn't be the reason we don't draft him.

    Yes, he's smaller and I think quite a bit smaller. Stats for College kids is frequently "exaggerated" so even though some sites say he is 5'10" the word on the street is he's around 5'8". Now, I don't know that in this NFL if that's a total killer, but it certainly will make him less effective. Based on his overall talent he's worth drafting, but I really can't see him in the first round - but, that's why GMs get the big bucks.

So, maybe if he has a little more input into drafting one we'll get at least one better than Keenum. Of course that ain't sayin a whole lot either........
    Again with the Kubiak praise?? Where does this come from? He was part of the Lynch selection - whether he was a major player or not, he was part of it. He didn't light up the league in drafting QBs in Houston and his acquisition of Schaub wasn't exactly brilliant. Kubiak was part of the draft team last year when we had a chance to get a starting QB and NOPE, he and Elway dropped the ball.
    Now, in truth I don't really blame Kubiak for our lack of a QB as that lies at the GMs feet, but where in the world does anyone think we have some kind of drafting asset in Kubiak????

    Andy Reid has laid the praise of the brains behind jumping in with both feet for Mahomes at the feet of their top scout at the time, Veach. Veach got promoted to GM when Dorsey was canned. I had never heard of that Veach guy until he made GM and to hear that he was the energy behind Mahomes is interesting. In an interview Reid said Veach was showing him tape on Mahomes when he was a 1st year starter. The way he told the story it sounds like Veach kept harping on the kid being special and the Chiefs had to get the guy. That really fills out the story because on draft day there were a number of talking heads scratching their heads why KC would give up such draft capital to move up and then take Mahomes rather than Watson. Hearing Reid explain it shows they had Mahomes on their active radar for 3 years!
    To me this shows the importance of those good scouts and how they go about their business. Hopefully, Elway has those same kind of scouts and he has this situation wired.

    We have several years of Drafts under John Elway, along with QBs Drafted, to look at. That's why I'm a BPA person who would prefer we go after a veteran in his prime, who won the MVP while leading his team to a Superbowl victory. What made last years Draft a good one? My guess is that it was Kubiak. And Kubiak is gone. God help us if we throw away a #1 on another Lynch or Osweiler.

    Murray’s exact measured height from the beginning of the 2018 college football season is 5-foot-9 and 7/8 inches in socks.

    Cap is likely to increase by $10-12 mil though. Does most every year.

    Sure if you want to just throw out 2013 when he wasn't in a Pederson/Ried offense and had 27 TD's and 3 INT's...
