If you had to pick the two greatest quarterbacks in Denver Broncos history, John Elway and Peyton Manning jump to the forefront with a quickness.
But, who are the best quarterbacks the Broncos drafted?
Let’s take a look:
5. Tim Tebow
Yes, Tebow. OK, he wasn’t a great quarterback when it comes to throwing the ball, but the kid won games. Remember 2011? It was Mile High Magic led by Tim Tebow, making the playoffs – albeit backing in – and then beating the Pittsburgh Steelers on the first play of overtime.
4. Randy Johnson
No, we’re not talking about the amazing MLB pitcher, but another guy with the same name and a big arm. This Randy Johnson played 75 games back in the 1960s and 70s, being drafted by the Broncos in 1966. He never suited up for Denver, though, since he was also drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the same year. Johnson was a starter for two seasons, throwing for over 8,000 yards with 51 touchdowns and 90 interceptions in his NFL career.
