In his latest three-round 2022 NFL mock draft for Draft Wire, Luke Easterling has the Denver Broncos selecting a quarterback, just not in the first round.

Easterling’s mock predicts the Broncos will select Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd with the 14th overall pick. Given that Alexander Johnson, Josey Jewell and Kenny Young are all scheduled to become free agents in 2022, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Denver target a linebacker in the draft. If they do it in the first round, though, the Broncos might miss out on a lot of QB prospects.

Wake Forest’s Sam Hartman (No. 9) was the only quarterback who went off the board before Denver’s first pick in Draft Wire’s mock draft. Mississippi’s Matt Corral (No. 19), Pitt’s Kenny Pickett (No. 25), Liberty’s Malik Willis (No. 27), North Carolina’s Sam Howell (No. 34) and Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder (No. 45) are then picked before the Broncos go back on the clock in the second round.

Easterling has Denver then landing Nevada QB Carson Strong with the 48th overall pick. He’s the seventh QB selected in Draft Wire’s mock.

After that, the Broncos land UCLA offensive tackle Sean Rhyan (No. 59), Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas (No. 79) and Clemson defensive lineman Tyler Davis (No. 91) with their remaining picks.
