Could two Stanford QBs unite in Denver?

Catching up on some Christmas Eve AFC West nuggets:

Denver Broncos front-office-man in-waiting John Elway sounded like he wouldn’t mind seeing the Broncos take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck if they end up with the No. 1 overall pick. The Broncos are currently on pace to the No. 2 pick, while Carolina is on pace to get the No. 1 pick. Luck, if he enters the draft, is expected to be the No. 1 pick.

Even though a lot would have to happen for Denver to be in position to take Luck, if it did happen, the Broncos would have to make a decision. It drafted Tim Tebow in the first round this year. Luck is expected to be more of a sure thing than Tebow by many NFL observers.

An Elway-Luck union in Denver would be a heck of a story. Elway was the last Stanford quarterback to go No.1 in the draft. The Baltimore Colts took Elway and traded him to Denver in 1983. That worked out OK for Denver.
