Broncos met with QB Michael Hiers at Samford’s pro day

The Denver Broncos met with quarterback Michael Hiers at Samford’s pro day last month, according to KPRC-TV’s Aaron Wilson.

Hiers (6-1, 215 pounds) spent two seasons at Murray State before transferring to Northwest Mississippi Community College in 2020. In two seasons at NMCC, Heirs threw for 4,519 yards and 34 touchdowns.

The quarterback then transferred to Samford in 2022. Over the last two years with the Bulldogs, Heirs threw for 6,600 yards and 54 touchdowns against 12 interceptions in 24 games. He also rushed for six scores at Samford.

Despite posting big numbers at the FCS level in college, Heris is projected to go undrafted in the NFL draft later this month.

The 24-year-old quarterback could be a late-round prospect for the Broncos if they’re looking for a third- or fourth-string QB to take to training camp. It’s also possible that Denver could be taking a look at Heirs as a potential rookie minicamp tryout candidate.

The Broncos invited Case Cookus to rookie camp in 2021 and while he did not last long in Denver, Cookus is now starting in the United Football League. Hiers might hope for a similar career path after college.
