Denver Broncos general manager George Paton attended the CSU-Nevada game at Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins last Saturday.
The game featured several potential NFL prospects, but the most notable player was Nevada quarterback Carson Strong.
Perhaps in part because he was playing right in their backyard, the Broncos sent four members of their scouting department to watch Strong (and the other players featured in the game) play.
The Wolf Pack blew out the Rams 52-10 and Strong looked sharp, completing 17-of-22 passes for 288 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.
Luke Easterling’s most recent 2022 NFL mock draft for Draft Wire has the Broncos selecting Strong in the second round.
Paton has now watched five quarterback prospects in person this fall. In addition to Strong, Denver’s GM has also attended games featuring QBs Matt Corral, Kenny Pickett, Malik Willis and Sam Howell in recent weeks.
The Broncos currently have 11 picks to use in next year’s draft, including five selections in the first three rounds.
