2021 Building Block 1 / Go Texans
Elway was on his way to a Jim Kelly NFL career until the Broncos found him a running game. Elway was always a bridesmaid until they got him a bonafide running game. If that running game never arrives.....Elway and the Broncos don't win a SB......they would've had to wait for Manning's arrival.C'mon my friend SteelB that usually sharp football acumen of yours has failed you in this comment !
The first QB drafted in the MaHomes/Watson class was Trubisky and he's not even remotely in the same conversation of eiher the Chiefs or Texans QB after 4 years in the league. In other words a players draft position may or may not be relevant to his value in the NFL after 3 or 4 years.
But yes Elway looked to be a great NFL QB coming out of Stanford and of course he did in fact become one of the all time great QBs but so many other highly drafted QBs disappointed, some even busted.
