Broncos CB Chris Harris Says He’s Hoping the Team Doesn’t Draft a QB with the 5th Pick

Denver cornerback Chris Harris hopes the Broncos will not draft a quarterback with the fifth overall pick in the NFL Draft, Herbie Teope of NFL.com reports.

“Someone who’s going to come in and play,” Harris told reporters Tuesday, per The Athletic’s Nicki Jhabvala. “We need someone who’s going to come in and play now, so whether that be [Saquon] Barkley, [Bradley] Chubb … the guard from Notre Dame [Quenton Nelson]. One of those three guys. We know those guys can come in and play right now. Not a quarterback right now, I wouldn’t say. We’re trying to win now, man. We don’t have time to wait.”

The Broncos come off a 5-11 season after enduring a carousel of signal-callers with Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. Siemian led the trio by appearing in 11 games with 10 starts and completing 209 of 349 pass attempts (59 percent) for 2,285 yards and 12 touchdowns against 14 interceptions. Denver traded Siemian to the Minnesota Vikings day after free agency began and brought in former Vikings quarterback Case Keenum on a two-year deal worth $36 million.
