Paxton Lynch is a rare first-round bust. Now, busts in that round...especially at quarterback...happen more than teams would like. What makes Lynch a rarity is the fact that he busted with the team that drafted him (Broncos) without ever getting a chance as the starter. Sure, he did start a small handful of games for the Broncos but the team never handed over the offense to him. In fact, Lynch never earned that right and couldn't beat out the likes of Trevor Siemian (2016, 2017) or Chad Kelly (2018). He bounced around to the Seahawks before joining the Steelers as a practice squad player.
He is tall, athletic and has a rocket arm but motivation and dedication questions have constantly swirled around the 2016 first-round pick. The Steelers are likely his last chance to make anything of himself in the NFL. The fact that Lynch is fourth string on the depth chart behind below average quarterbacks like Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges tell you a lot about where he stands. (May 18)
