Broncos sent personnel to QB Michael Penix’s pro day

The Denver Broncos were in attendance at Washington’s pro day on Thursday to scout quarterback Michael Penix.

Denver’s front office sent their pass game coordinator, college director and two scouts to Penix’s workout, according to Jim Nagy.

Penix, 23, is widely considered the fifth or sixth-best QB in this year’s class. Most draft pundits have Penix below Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye and J.J. McCarthy, ranked in the same range as Bo Nix.

Penix spent four years at Indiana before transferring to Washington. His biggest red flag going into the draft is injury concerns — Penix suffered torn ACLs in 2018 and 2020 and shoulder injuries in 2019 and 2021.

The Broncos are scheduled to pick 12th overall in the NFL draft and Penix is expected to be available at that spot. Our most recent seven-round mock draft has Denver trading down from pick No. 12 to select Penix later in the first round.

The Broncos have now attended the pro days of Williams, Daniels, Maye, McCarthy, Nix, Penix, Michael Pratt, and Spencer Rattler. Denver met with those same eight quarterbacks at the NFL combine, so it seems safe to assume those are the top QBs on the team’s big board.

The 2024 NFL draft will be held in Detroit from April 25-27.
