Broncos selected Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the No. 26 overall pick of the 2016 draft. Broncs CR3W Absolutely Love It!

Lynch (6'7/244) started three years at Memphis, finishing his career with a 63.0 completion percentage, 7.36 YPA, 59:23 TD:INT ratio and 17 rushing scores. Lynch has huge hands (10 1/4") and high-level quarterback athleticism, running 4.86 with a 36-inch vertical. Big, mobile and over a year younger than Carson Wentz, Lynch's drawbacks consist of up-and-down ball placement resulting from technical flaws as a pocket passer and frustrating game-to-game consistency. Lynch has drawn some comparisons to Blake Bortles, and would benefit from a year on the bench, though he'll undoubtedly make rookie starts behind Mark Sanchez.

Broncos aware of video showing DE Derek Wolfe throwing punch in club

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The +Denver Broncos say they are aware of a video that shows defensive end Derek Wolfe throwing a punch in a Denver nightclub Saturday night.

The video, posted by TMZ on its website, shows Wolfe first having a verbal exchange with one or more persons, followed by some pushing and shoving in a group as Wolfe then throws a right-handed punch in a crowd.

TMZ reported that Wolfe was later bloodied in the altercation after being hit with an object -- possibly a bottle -- and left the VIE nightclub.

Sources with the team said police were not called about the incident.

Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth, in a statement Tuesday morning, said: "Derek talked to us on Monday about the issue and it's been addressed internally.''

Said Wolfe's agent, Mike Simon, to TMZ: "He did not provoke the fight. He was trying to protect a friend. His recollection is that he was hit from the back with an object when he wasn't looking."

The +NFL told +The Denver Post that Wolfe is unlikely to face discipline from the league.

"We take a look at any such incident," league spokesman Brian McCarthy told the newspaper. "But it doesn't appear on its face to be something that would lead to league discipline."
