After five straight losing seasons, the Denver Broncos are looking to get things moving in the right direction.
The team is dealing with some uncertainty at the quarterback position, and as a result, it sounds like Denver has a few quarterback prospects on its radar.
The Broncos were reportedly scheduled to meet with three exciting young quarterbacks on Monday night.

Denver has the No. 9 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, and it seems like there’s a pretty good chance that Kenny Pickett, Matt Corral and Malik Willis will all be available when that pick rolls around.
Pickett put together a stellar 2021 season at the University of Pittsburgh. In 13 games, he completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 4,319 yards and a whopping 42 touchdowns. He threw just seven interceptions along the way and was able to lead Pitt to the ACC title.
Corral, meanwhile, had an impressive 2021 season himself at the collegiate level. His outstanding play helped the University of Mississippi reach the Sugar Bowl.
Corral completed 67.9 percent of his passes for 3,349 yards and 20 touchdowns. He threw just five interceptions in 13 games. Additionally, he racked up 614 rushing yards and 11 scores on the ground.
As for Willis, he made a name for himself at Liberty University. In 13 games during his final season there, he threw for 2,857 yards and rushed for 878 more. He recorded 27 passing touchdowns and 13 rushing scores.
It will be very interesting to see where these prospects land once the draft comes around. Perhaps one of them has a future with the Broncos organization.
