After meeting Sean Payton, a quarterback prospect writes a message to the Broncos

The quarterbacks expected for the first round are now well-known as the NFL draft draws more and closer every day. Apart from Caleb Williams of USC, a number of mock drafts still predict that the Denver Broncos will select a quarterback, with options including Jayden Daniels of LSU, Drake Maye of UNC, J.J. McCarthy of Michigan, Bo Nix of Oregon, and Michael Penix Jr. of Washington.

In certain circumstances, it appears that Sean Payton will have to select his signal-caller by hand from the No. 12 overall slot; in other possibilities, it appears that the Broncos may choose to hold onto the quarterback or even trade back to get the best available option. But what if the Broncos, a club that is rebuilding, have another viable and affordable option?

Spencer Rattler of South Carolina was questioned about the pre-draft process, especially which club he needed to prepare for the most, when he appeared on FanDuel TV’s Up and Adams Show.

“Most likely Denver,” Rattler told Kay Adams. It was a fairly interesting thing, what they did with the install and their QB quiz. But I had to research that well. but performed admirably with that.

Recognizing that he’s still very much in the interview stage of being pursued by an NFL team, Rattler refrained from disclosing too much about Payton’s assessment and “quiz.” Rattler hinted that “offensive stuff, quarterback stuff, really breaking down their offense, formations, stuff like that” made up the bulk of the testing.

Under former head coach Lincoln Riley, the 23-year-old redshirt senior began his collegiate career at Oklahoma for three seasons. Prior to Caleb Williams’s upset, Rattler was the early favorite to win the Heisman Trophy in 2021. Later, Williams would follow Riley at USC, the home of the 2022 Heisman Trophy winner.

In 2022, Rattler moved to South Carolina, where he had two seasons throwing for over 6,000 yards and 37 touchdowns while compiling a 28-14 record in the very competitive SEC. The native of Arizona finished his collegiate career with 48 career games played, 10,807 throwing yards, 77 touchdowns, 410 running yards, and 16 more ground scores.
