With the twenty-second overall pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select:
Mason Rudolph; Quarteback from Oklahoma State University.
Historically speaking, John Elway loves big armed Quarterbacks. However, attempting to nab this year’s one in Josh Allen was simply too difficult and expensive to achieve. Instead, Elway opts for something else in the mold of Mason Rudolph, a prototypical, efficient passer who can command an offense. While Case Keenum is a good term answer, he is but a short term answer. A long term solution will be needed. Rudolph does need to work on his throwing mechanics and velocity as both have the potential to grow and his on field diagnosis still needs work but he does have the leadership skills, pre snap recognition and reads that Elway does like in his Quarterbacks. He might not be ready in 2018 but 2019 will be big for Rudolph.
