March 15th, 2024

The Denver Broncos are making headlines in the NFL offseason with whispers of a strategic tank for the 2024 season. This audacious plan hinges on acquiring the coveted number one overall pick in the 2025 NFL Draft, all with their sights set on a singular target, star University of Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders.

The Broncos' commitment to this strategy is evident in their offseason moves. Following the departure of veteran quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, Denver's current quarterback room houses Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci. Notably, the team bypassed opportunities to sign veteran options like Sam Darnold, Jacoby Brissett, and even established names like Joe Flacco, Mac Jones, Baker Mayfield, and Kirk Cousins. This clear lack of urgency for a win-now approach suggests the Broncos have their eyes firmly set on the future, specifically the tantalizing prospect of Shedeur Sanders.

Why Shedeur Sanders? A Star Rises in Colorado

Sanders has been electrifying college football with his stellar performance at Colorado. Last season, he shattered the school record with a staggering 3,230 passing yards, pushing his career total past a remarkable 10,000 yards. This impressive display has undoubtedly captured the attention of NFL scouts. Several scouts have even placed him within the elite company of top 2024 draft prospects like North Carolina's Drake Maye and the reigning Heisman winner, USC's Caleb Williams, solidifying Sanders' status as a potential top-five pick.

The prospect of Sanders transitioning directly from Colorado to the Denver Broncos is a dream scenario for many fans. Having a star quarterback already acclimated to the state could be a transformative move for the Broncos. While Sanders gears up for the 2024 NCAA season, he's also experiencing the exciting perks of being a top college athlete. A recent trip to Miami for a private training session at the University of Miami facilities exemplifies this. After the grueling workout, Sanders, along with fellow quarterbacks Kyron Drones and Cam Ward, enjoyed some well-deserved relaxation on the beach and a luxurious yacht ride – a clear sign that life is good for the rising star.

As the Broncos navigate the upcoming season, all eyes will be on whether they stick to their alleged plan of acquiring Shedeur Sanders. This potential draft heist could usher in a new era of quarterback dominance in Denver, but only time will tell if the gamble pays off.
