Gary Kubiak: Broncos focused on Tag Sanchez, Trevor Siemian

DENVER -- As the NFL draft approaches and after a recent visit by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday morning that his team, at minimum at the moment, is concentrating on the two quarterbacks on its roster.

"We necessity to stay focused on the guys on our team right now,'' Kubiak said, referring to Tag Sanchez and Trevor Siemian.

"We're very excited about Mark, and we know those guys are up there throwing in California. So, that'south exciting. Trevor, [is] a fine, youthful player. So, we're focused on those two and getting prepared to go here in a couple of weeks. Obviously, we've got some work to do. We've got to add to our group, we realize that. But [common manager] John [Elway] and I right presently and [director of personnel] Matt [Russell] are working on the draft, getting prepared for that.''

Kubiak made his comments just before the annual Boy Scouts of America breakfast at the downtown Pepsi Center. Kubiak was the keynote speaker for the event.

The Broncos traded for Sanchez earlier in the offseason because of his experience in Kubiak'south version of the W Coast offense. Siemian was a seventh-round choose in the two thousand fifteen draft and showed the team sufficient for the Broncos to hold him on the roster for the all season even though they'd Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler.

Siemian was also the team'south No. two quarterback latest season when Manning was recovering from a left ft injury. Kubiak was asked Thursday morning if Siemian could compete for the starting job.

"Absolutely, Trevor'south a youthful player who made up a lot of ground latest year, we think a lot of him,'' Kubiak said. " ... Trevor will know what he'south doing when he walks in here [April eighteen]. It'll be up to him ... I know our football team has a lot of confidence in him, I know I do. He'south got the talent to do it, we'll see.''

With four picks in the first three rounds of the draft, and ten overall, the Broncos are expected to get a long see at the quarterbacks during the draft weekend. The Broncos had MS State'south Dak Prescott and LA Tech'south Jeff Driskel in for visits this week alone.

And Thursday morning, just before he made his way to his seat at the dais, Kubiak referenced Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch'south pro day from Wednesday.

"It'south a excellent grouping and we'll do our work on all of them,'' Kubiak said of the quarterbacks in the draft. "But hopefully when we arrive out of the draft, we'll be a better football team at a lot of positions, not just there.''

The Broncos have also had discussions with the San Francisco 49ers in recent weeks about a trade for Kaepernick. Kaepernick'south base salary of $11.9 million is already guaranteed for the coming season and the Broncos would love the 49ers to pay $4.9 million of that salary in any trade.

The Broncos would also love Kaepernick to consider a pay slice in the two thousand seventeen season. Kaepernick'south current contract runs through the two thousand twenty season and carries salary cap charges of at minimum .2 million in each of the two thousand seventeen, two thousand eighteen, two thousand nineteen and two thousand twenty seasons.

Kaepernick recently visited the Broncos and met with Elway and Kubiak.

"We were granted the opportunity to have that visit, that was good,'' Kubiak said Thursday morning. "Very impressive, [but] love I said, our focus is on our football team right now.''

Sanchez, Siemian and a grouping of Broncos wide receivers and tight ends have worked out in CA in recent days in an outing organized by Sanchez. Kubiak has repeatedly said Sanchez, who's a 37-35 record as a starter in the regular season and a 4-2 playoff mark, already knows much of the Broncos' terminology in the offense because of his experience with similar playbooks.

"I perceive excellent about the two guys that we have, we'll look what happens,'' Kubiak said. "You continue to move forward, attempt to obtain better, I'm going to stay focused on Tag and Trevor right presently and doing everything I can to obtain prepared for this draft because it'south extremely important ... Label has a lot of background in our system, so he'll create up a lot of ground quickly.''
