Summary

The Broncos added Jeff Driskel as a free agent addition earlier this offseason. The team needed a backup to Drew Lock that wouldn't pressure him for the starting job and Driskel fits the bill. The young quarterback does have starting experience, although he has not had much success as a starter for either the Bengals or the Lions. Now in Denver, Driskel can help Lock as the starter and gives the team veteran depth at the position. Driskel is athletic and has a strong arm, so his skill set is somewhat similar to Lock. He won't see the field unless Lock is hurt. With so much talent on the Broncos offense, Driskel could look better than he previously has in the NFL. (May 9)
