Summary

Paxton Lynch didn't do much as a rookie in 2016. The first-round pick out of Memphis struggled to transition from the college game to the pros, and he seemed to be a bad fit for the Gary Kubiak offense. Lynch did start in two games (1-1 record) but seemed to take steps back (see Jacksonville game) as the season went on. This year, new head coach Vance Joseph has declared it will be a 50/50 "open" competition between Lynch and last year's starter Trevor Siemian. Lynch has reportedly been taking to the new offense well, and he's got tremendous upside if/when the light comes on for him at the pro level. In a shotgun heavy system crafted by OC Mike McCoy, Lynch could thrive as the starter due to his big arm and quality weapons outside like WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. We'll see the battle shake out in training camp. (May 30)

Latest News

Broncos | Paxton Lynch surged late in offseason (Sun Jun 25, 12:01 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch 'played with greater fearlessness' and made significant strides over the final two weeks of the team's offseason program, according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver.

Our View: Lynch is tall (6'7") has a rocket arm and the athleticism to be a threat as a runner. He's competing with last year's starter Trevor Siemian for the main job with the Broncos in 2017. The competition begins in training camp and Lynch was surging before the break. Lynch wants to go deep, and he was connecting on long passes with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders often in mincamp. He needs to be better when it comes to throwing with touch/timing on short routes if he wants to win the job.
