NFL Draft 2012: Denver Broncos Keep Moving Toward End Of Round 1

The Denver Broncos, once staring a top 10 draft pick in the face, have improved their place in the NFL standings and are now scheduled for a selection in the early 20s. Right now, that pick comes at No. 22, but that is as part of a glut of nine teams with a 7-5 record.

Yet, questions still remain on whether the Broncos should draft a quarterback. As the Denver Post's Jeff Legwold recently examined, should the Broncos keep Tim Tebow as the starting quarterback the team still needs a backup for him. Brady Quinn is a free agent and Adam Weber is only on the current practice squad. Weber doesn't have the same football game as Tebow does, and the Broncos ideally wouldn't want to have two playbooks.

The Broncos don't need to draft a quarterback in the first round, obviously, but until or if John Elway and John Fox give Tim Tebow their seal of approval in 2012, there will certainly be much speculation about what the team should do at quarterback.
