2017

2016

The third quarterback selected in this year's draft, Lynch in some ways falls into an enviable situation. The Super Bowl champion Broncos are led by their defense, which puts less pressure on the offense to score, and the team's turmoil at the position after watching Peyton Manning retire and Brock Osweiler bolt for Houston as a free agent also makes the rookie seem less like the franchise's savior and more like a savvy fallback plan. A very tall pocket passer with plus athleticism, Lynch has a big arm and uses his mobility to extend plays rather than looking to run at every opportunity, a skill set that likely seems very familiar to general manager John Elway. Despite those assets, though, Lynch is highly unlikely to be ready to face NFL defenses by Week 1. His ability to read defenses isn't up to scratch coming out of a college spread offense, and his mechanics, footwork and accuracy will all need a fair amount of polish. As such, the Broncos will be patient with the rookie and will rely on Mark Sanchez to lead the offense until they feel Lynch is ready, something which may not happen until next season. He'll still have Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders to throw to when he does take the reins, giving him a fairly high eventual ceiling, but his 2016 production will likely be limited to garbage time snaps.
