Maybe Keenum's 2017 season was for real, but Elway shouldn't approach the rest of the offseason with that assumption. Though they could still add a quarterback at No. 5, if they're not in love with any of the projected first-round quarterbacks, they no longer need to draft one to simply fill a hole; they can select the best player available, add an immediate impact player, or even move out of the top five and acquire more picks in a trade.
For the Broncos, that's if they miss out on the Cousins Sweepstakes.

Only Vikings, Jets have shown interest in Cousins so far
That move effectively pushed Cousins into free agency after six years with the team that drafted him. Keenum is coming off the best year of his career, leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship.
In 2017, Keenum threw 22 touchdown passes compared to only seven interceptions, and had a 98.3 passer rating, the seventh-best mark in the National Football League (and ahead of QBs such as Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins, Ben Roethlisberger, and Matt Ryan).
The Vikings will officially have a new starting quarterback next season.
