Lynch, 22, profiles among the top three signal callers in the 2016 QB class. He will have the opportunity to work in front of the Broncos decesion makers. Lynch is expected to go somewhere in the back half of the first round of the NFL Draft later this month. 

The Broncos have long been connected to Lynch after losing Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans. Denver also had an area scout in attendance at Memphis for Lynch's pro day.

Lynch profiles as a QB who is not NFL ready and would be required to sit and learn as a rookie. While he is not ready to be a starter, Lynch profiles as a great fit for Head Coach Gary Kubiak West Coast offense.

As a three year starter, Lynch started 38 games, threw for 8,863 yards and 59 touchdowns while completing 63% of his passes for an average of 7.4 yards per pass. Lynch also added an additional 687 yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground.
