Elway talks about Tebow and future at QB

By Bill Williamson

New Denver vice president of football operations John Elway, one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL, said the 2011 quarterback class is too good not to examine. The Broncos are looking at several quarterback prospects.

Elway said the fact that Denver, which has the No. 2 overall pick, is looking at draft prospects doesn’t mean the Broncos don’t believe in second-year quarterback Tim Tebow, who was the No. 25 overall pick by the previous Denver regime.

"We're always looking for that guy," Elway told the Denver Post. "We may already have the guy who can pull the trigger and win us a championship someday. We may have him. We don't know. We believe in Tim but he's not there yet."

This is all very intriguing, but I still expect Denver to concentrate on defense in the early portion of the draft.
