NFL Draft 2012: Should Denver Broncos Draft A Quarterback In Round 2 Or 3?

The Denver Broncos will now begin the long march to the 2012 NFL Draft, which will certainly be filled with plenty of speculation about the team drafting a quarterback at some point during the festivities. It is almost a foregone conclusion that the Broncos won't take a quarterback in the first round, especially since the team will pick at No. 25.

However, Sports Illustrated's Peter King believes the team will look at Rounds 2 or 3 to put a young quarterback on the roster behind Tim Tebow:

Denver should backstop Tebow with a second- or third-round prospect and either Brady Quinn or an option type of quarterback like Tebow, in the event of an in-game injury; that way the Broncos won't have to revolutionize their offense in the middle of a game.

John Elway did watch Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles during the college football season, and Foles is the type of quarterback who would be a second- or third-round pick. But we still have plenty of time to go. Tebow will work with Elway throughout this season, and working with a Hall of Fame quarterback, possibly the greatest quarterback of all-time, could make all the difference.
