NFL Draft 2012: Senior Bowl Provides Broncos With QB Showcase

The Denver Broncos are most certainly in the market for another quarterback or two to add to its roster. Tim Tebow and Adam Weber are the only two quarterbacks under contract for the 2012 season. The 2012 NFL Draft will most certainly provide the Broncos a chance to add a quarterback, and this week's Senior Bowl has six quarterbacks whom the Broncos could draft after the first round.

The Denver Post's Jeff Legwold points out that the quarterbacks at the game represent two different sets. On the North team, Michigan State's Kirk Cousins, Boise State's Kellen Moore and Wisconsin's Russell Wilson are all undersized quarterbacks who had great production in college -- the undersized bit going against John Elway's preferred quarterback build.

On the South team, Arizona's Nick Foles, Oklahoma's Brandon Weeden and San Diego State's Ryan Lindley have the size Elway would prefer but other issues. Weeden is 29 and has shoulder issues, which hurt his long-term potential. Lindley was inconsistent throughout his career. Foles, though, has a big arm and was insanely productive as a Wildcat. But can he play from under center consistently?

The Broncos could certainly find most of these guys selected in Round 3 or later, but Foles might have a chance to crack the back end of the first round.
