Paxton Lynch, Free Agent
Drafted: 2016 / Pick 26
John Elway was great at playing quarterback, but he’s not been good at drafting them, and Lynch is a great example of that. Despite being a 1st-round pick, Lynch couldn’t even beat out Trevor Siemian for Denver’s starting job. Two years later, he couldn’t even hold off Chad Kelly for the backup job and spent the entire 2018 season without a job.
Lynch is a great example of why it takes more than size and good arm strength to play quarterback. For being the third quarterback selected in his draft class, he’s been a complete bust and is just hoping he can stay in the league a little longer as a backup.
