Although Elway played in a losing system, anyone could see his skills were off the charts, so there were no doubters there.
I havent had the chance to watch it yet, but do have it on the DVR.
Kinda of hard to find concrete facts about this but being a life long Broncos fan and grew up in the 90's watching the Broncos...
Elway was very mobile and a scrambler and obviously athletic enough to have played baseball.
And every mention of a QB in the draft is compared to the perfect QB "Elway".
What were his measurables, like 40 yard dash and what not?
