PFF dubs Bo Nix the ‘perfect’ draft target for Broncos

Oregon football quarterback Bo Nix will leave the college football ranks as not only the player with the most starts (61) but also with the single-season completion record (77.45 percent). Nix’s strong performance against Liberty last week further cemented his 2024 NFL draft stock. Could he be a fit for the Denver Broncos in April?

If you let Pro Football Focus tell it, Nix could be the perfect fit in the post-Russell Wilson world that may come for the Broncos for the 2024 NFL season. Although Wilson enjoyed a bit of a resurgence with Denver coach Sean Payton, Nix and his accuracy may be the fit Payton needs in a quarterback for the long term.

“With Russell Wilson now on the bench and on his way out of Denver, the Broncos need a new quarterback,” Trevor Sikkema wrote on PFF’s website. “The problem is, I can’t in all good conscience put Caleb Williams or Drake Maye here knowing how much it would take to move up that high in the draft.

“If they stay in the middle of the first round, where they are projected to pick, Nix would be an ideal option. Nix has legit NFL arm strength in both distance and velocity, as well as added mobility with his legs. He’s also the most experienced college quarterback of all time with 60 games as a starter. He and Sean Payton could work well together.”

Would Nix be the best fit for the Broncos? Judging from his productivity in the college ranks, he’s worth the gamble.
