If only we could be flies on the wall in various scouting departments around the league, where they have six late nights left to work on their draft boards.

A number of teams have quarterback issues, and they will have to decide between drafting a guy like Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert or trading for a guy like Kevin Kolb. But can you get a good quarterback from another team?
Can’t quite figure out the thinking behind new Broncos coach John Fox making a point to tell reporters Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine that Kyle Orton is his team’s starting quarterback.
