Chris Harris explains why Broncos should not take QB at No. 5
The Denver Broncos secured their starting quarterback for the 2018 season when they signed Case Keenum, and veteran defensive back Chris Harris believes that means they do not need to address the position early in the NFL Draft.
With a draft class that most feel is loaded with solid QB prospects, there’s a decent chance John Elway could look to snag his signal-caller of the future with the No. 5 overall pick. Harris thinks that would be a mistake.
Broncos DB Chris Harris, asked if he wants the Broncos to take a QB at #5. "Not a quarterback right now. We're trying to win right now. We don't have time to wait."

The Broncos still have a solid defense even after they lost Aqib Talib, and they have seemingly been a good quarterback away from contention over the past two seasons. Now that they’ve secured one in free agency, it makes sense that veteran players would rather the team address other needs early in the draft.
Elway may have hinted at his draft plans recently, though the Hall of Famer probably wants to wait to see who is available before he makes any decisions. If a QB he’s high on slips to No. 5, Elway may end up disappointing Harris and others.
