A trip through Broncos draft history with Andrew Mason and Jim Saccomano

With the draft approaching, Mason and Saccomano take a look back at the Broncos' draft history -- focusing on the years up to 1983. They start by chronicling the early AFL drafts -- when some players were drafted as PR exercises -- before moving on to a look back at the details around the drafting of RB Floyd Little in 1972, the series of strong drafts in the John Ralston era from 1972-76, and, finally, the post-draft trade for John Elway 36 years ago, with an inside look at how it came together from the Broncos' end.
