The Broncos’ search for a quarterback for the future led them to Durham, North Carolina this week.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that General Manager John Elway and others from the team made the trip to the home of Duke University. The reason for the trip was the chance to put former Duke quarterback Daniel Jones through his paces on the field.

Jones is generally included in a group of possible first-round quarterbacks along with Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock. The Broncos have met or are set to meet with everyone in that group with Lock making the trip to Denver this weekend.

The Broncos have the No. 10 overall pick and using it on a quarterback would signal their long-term plans at the position. Anything else would likely set Joe Flacco up for a second year as the starter in Denver.

  1. Daniel Jones is going to be a very bad QB in the NFL. If the Broncos or some other team end up spending a 1st on him they’re going to come to regret it. I wouldnt take Jones period but I think teams are insane using more than a 2nd round pick on him, I think Jones has a 30%-40% of developing into a very average QB like a Andy Dalton type. Problem is I think he has a much higher chance of becoming a Geno Smith like draft bust. I’d much rather draft QB Ryan Finley in the 3rd over Jones, very similar talents as prospects and I think Finley has a bette chance of success than Jones.

  2. There is something about Jones that makes me think he would be worth taking him as a first round pick. He has been schooled by a coach that is kind of a QB whisperer. I would not be opposed to having him in Denver. Drew Lock has a lot of power in his arm but he has accuracy issues, kind of like Tebow did. He kind of reminds of that power hitter in the movie Trouble With The Curve. Many are high on him but the things he cannot do will end up sinking his ship. We don’t really need another one of those here in Denver.

  3. Dude hit on 59% of his throws. He’s not close to comparing with Finley, who is not nearly as strong, but has accuracy & touch that Jones cannot match. Jones & Finley are not similar, outside their positions & conferences.
