Take a moment, go back to the past and remember with us the great Broncos of yesteryear.

From the time he was drafted, Jason Elam impressed everyone with the power of his leg. Tying the record for longest field goal at the time at 63 yards didn't hurt, either.

Today's N.F.L. draft has seven rounds. Mecklenburg was drafted in 1983 when there were 12 rounds. Karl Mecklenburg was drafted in the 12th round. He may never have seen the field in today's N.F.L. But he's definitely one of the all-time greats.

One of the hardest hitting safeties in the history of the game, and one of the Broncos greatest all-time players. Remember the hit on Christian Okoye?

Hall of Famer. 2000 yard rusher, and one heck of a football player. Some say he's the reason we won those two Super Bowls.

Save the best for last right? First overall pick, Hall of Famer, two-time Super Bowl winner as a player, Super Bowl MVP. He's also won one as an executive. Simply the greatest Bronco ever.
