ENGLEWOOD L.J. Collier Jersey , Colo. (AP) — John Elway as having fallen for Missouri’s Drew Lock even though the Denver Broncos boss hasn’t spent nearly as much time scouting this year’s crop of quarterbacks as he did last year’s superior group that included Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold.Picking fifth last year, Elway passed on first-round QBs Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson to draft pass rusher Bradley Chubb.Expect something similar this year with Elway, who owns the 10th pick this time, capitalizing on a draft that’s even deeper in defensive difference makers and lighter on the kind of pocket passers he prefers.Elway traded for former Ravens QB Joe Flacco this offseason, saying, “We feel like he’s really got a lot more football left in him.”Adding an experienced quarterback such as Flacco gives Elway wiggle room.“We feel like this gives us a lot of different options with that 10th pick, as well as the second and third (rounds),” Elway said. “We’re at the top of those rounds, so we feel like there are a lot of good football players that will be there to help us.”With really enticing quarterback classes coming up in 2020 and 2021, Elway will likely settle for a project passer down the board this year instead of grabbing the likes of Lock at No. 10.Lock has great athleticism, a strong arm and the swagger but lacks accuracy — sounds a lot like Paxton Lynch, whom Elway blundered by taking in the first round three years ago, setting the franchise into a nosedive.The Broncos’ playoff drought is now three years http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marquise-blair-jersey , they’re coming off consecutive losing seasons for the first time since the Nixon administration and Elway is on his seventh QB since Peyton Manning’s retirement and his fourth head coach in six seasons.With Justin Herbert bypassing the 2019 draft to play his senior season at Oregon, the one quarterback that fits Elway’s mold for an old-school pocket passer is Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins — who wore an Elway jersey on his Broncos visit — but he’s expected to be gone by the time the Broncos are on the clock.Last year, Elway shifted his focus after two stop-watch drafts and loaded his roster with prospects who had played four years in college and had been captains. That approach produced his best draft class yet.Elway has plenty of holes to fill as he tries to revive the Broncos:INSIDE LINEBACKEROft-injured Brandon Marshall is gone and while Todd Davis and Josey Jewell had their moments last season, Denver needs a linebacker who can throttle tight ends.“You’re always looking for that linebacker that can play all three downs,” Elway said. “That’s where the game is going, is inside backers under 225 to 230 pounds that can really run and cover people.”TIGHT ENDThe Broncos have three tight ends coming off injuries that sidelined them last season: Jake Butt, Jeff Heuerman and Troy Fumagalli.“We’ve been trying to address that every year,” Elway said. “That’s a tough position now, especially when you’re talking about an in-line guy that is a blocker but can also be a good pass receiver. We don’t have a lot of in-line guys coming out of college like we used to because of what they’re doing in college ball, opening things up. And there’s more receivers coming out of college. It’s much more difficult finding the in-line tight ends than it’s ever been.”DEFENSIVE LINEMANThe Broncos have the NFL’s most prolific pass rush duo in Von Miller and Chubb. But what they really need is more pressure up the middle.“Absolutely. You need to have a good, even rush,” new head coach Vic Fangio said. “You can’t have two guys applying pressure here and two guys stuck here. You want, ‘Boom, Boom D.K. Metcalf Jersey ,’ right there, four guys at the quarterback he can feel caving in on him. That’s critical at the pass rush and that’s an area we need to improve in.”KICK RETURNERThe Broncos could use a dynamic kick returner for a chance and if he can catch passes, too, all the better, because Emmanuel Sanders is trying to come back from a torn Achilles tendon.CORNERBACKMaybe.Chris Harris Jr. wants a new contract and is sitting out the offseason program until he gets one, and Elway wants to wait until after the draft to give it to him.Of course, that opens the possibility of a team calling Elway and making an offer for Harris. The Jacksonville Jaguars built their offense around a player who played less than 30 percent of the snaps this season.Running back Leonard Fournette was injured, suspended and on the bench in crunch time. He was fined, criticized and admittedly not in ideal shape late in the year.Fournette was more of a problem than a pro.And now the Jaguars (5-11) have to decide what to do with the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. It’s one of the main questions Jacksonville faces as it heads into an offseason that will be focused on revamping an offense that ranked 31st in the league in scoring.Coach Doug Marrone confirmed Monday that the team has voided the remaining guarantees in Fournette’s four-year rookie contract worth $27.1 million. The team made the move following Fournette’s weeklong suspension in late November. Fournette still could challenge the decision, which could cost him up to $7.1 million.At the very least, Fournette is now at risk of being cut or traded. No one would be surprised to see either happen after Sunday’s season finale at Houston.Fournette and fellow running back T.J. Yeldon spent most of the 20-3 loss on the bench and disengaged from coaches and teammates. Fournette was inactive because of foot and ankle injuries; Yeldon was active but did not play.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars expect DE Yannick Ngakoue’s holdout to be short-livedJaguars rookie safety Zedrick Woods submits retirement paperworkJalen Ramsey says Jaguars don’t plan to give him contract extension this seasonJaguars sign former UCF running back Taj McGowan for added depthJaguars QB Nick Foles to miss OTAs for undisclosed ‘personal reason’“It’s disappointing what occurred the other day,” Marrone said Monday. “We have taken care of it from a disciplinary standpoint, but like what I’ve always told you, those things remain between the club and the player.”Personnel chief Tom Coughlin ripped both players for being “disrespectful” and “selfish.”“Their behavior was unbecoming of a professional football player http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-cody-barton-jersey ,” Coughlin said in a statement.Fournette has missed 11 games in two seasons because of injuries and suspensions. The former LSU star ran for 439 yards and five touchdowns in eight games this season after running for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie.But he also was suspended one game in 2017 for leaving early during the bye week and suspended a week without pay for leaving the bench, running across the field and instigating a fight with Buffalo defensive end Shaq Lawson on Nov. 25. Fournette lost nearly $100,000 in salary during the weeklong suspension. It could cost him considerably more if the Jaguars decided to cut him with no guaranteed money remaining.“I definitely pride myself on trying to help some of the younger guys develop,” veteran defensive end Calais Campbell said. “I do believe that he’s a good person at heart and wants to be a good player. This is a unique situation, but I believe that he’s going to continue to mature and hopefully be who we need him to be.”Jaguars owner Shad Khan opted to keep Coughlin, Marrone and general manager Dave Caldwell intact for 2019 , giving them a chance to fix the team’s problems. Jacksonville finished last in the AFC South after making the conference championship game last January, a freefall that could be blamed mostly on offensive injuries and ineptitude.Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett was fired in November, creating one opening Marrone still has to fill. Quarterback Blake Bortles, who regressed in his fifth season and was benched, expects to be released before March.“When things don’t go well, a lot of it falls on the quarterback’s shoulders,” Bortles said. “I know that and signed up for that and have no problem with it Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , whether it’s a scapegoat or whatever you want to call it, somebody’s got to take the blame when things don’t go well. I think Nathaniel was one of those guys. I think I’m one of those guys. And I think other guys on this team were part of that as well.”Right tackle Jermey Parnell, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Carlos Hyde could join Bortles in the free-agent market. Yeldon, receiver Donte Moncrief, right guard A.J. Cann and running back Corey Grant are soon-to-be free agents. So are eight reserve offensive linemen.So numerous changes are coming for Jacksonville’s offense.And now Fournette’s future looks as wobbly as one of Bortles’ passes.“Availability, coachability and scheme,” Marrone said when asked about the offensive makeover ahead. “When I talk about that, we have to do a better job with the players we have available. We have to do a better job if those players don’t become available, what we’re going to do next. I think that’s an important thing when we look at it, and I think that was a mistake that I made this year.”
