"There have been a lot of great quarterbacks that have come through Denver and a good one obviously last year with Peyton," Lynch said. "So, I know there are a lot of shoes to fill. But I'm glad I'm on a team now and I'm ready to go up there and get to work."
"But there are no givens on our team. Everybody competes and I'm expecting him to come in here and make up some ground really quickly."
"Paxton was the guy that we had targeted. So it was a long night," Elway said. "It was a long couple of months, actually."
Despite valuable defensive players sliding down the board, Lynch was his top target all along, Elway said.
Kubiak insisted Lynch will compete for the starting job right away with Sanchez, whom the Broncos acquired two months ago from Philadelphia,Jerseys From China Online, and 2015 seventh-rounder Trevor Siemian, who took just one snap as a rookie last year.
Elway called Paxton a "big, athletic, strong young guy that fits us perfectly" after engineering a trade to select the quarterback whom scouts say needs some seasoning.
Lynch insisted he'll be a quick study in the NFL, too.
Lynch, who is 6-foot-7 and 245 pounds with a strong arm and nimble legs, is considered an ideal fit for coach Gary Kubiak's play-action offense. The question is: how soon will he develop into the starter?
The Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos selected the Memphis quarterback with the 26th overall pick of the first round in the NFL draft Thursday night.
