On multiple occasions before the 2011 draft, Broncos executive V.P. of football operations John Elway suggested that the team possibly would select a quarterback with the second overall selection.
We ultimately deemed it to be a ploy to get the most out of last year’s first-round pick, quarterback Tim Tebow. If so, it worked.
“I believe in them, and they believe in me,” Tebow told Ed Werder of ESPN.
Elway essentially agreed with that assessment. “I think where we are as an organization, we are going with Tim,” Elway said.
And so Tebow looks to be the guy who’ll get the nod moving forward, notwithstanding the presence of Kyle Orton.
