Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch is in a pretty lovely situation. He is a first round pick that is on the bench behind a former seventh round draft pick and a decent quarterback in the NFL (Mark Sanchez). When Lynch was asked if he believes he has an opportunity to start, the rookie said definitely.
“I definitely think I have the opportunity to better myself and put myself up in that position to play right away or sooner than I had thought,” Lynch said, via ESPN.com. “I knew those guys were going to be ahead of me just because of experience — Trevor his experience in the offense and Mark his experience in the league and me being a rookie, and this is the first time I’ve seen a playbook like that.”
