Other than being the subject of the most hot takes in franchise history, it's hard to imagine that Tim Tebow holds any of the Denver Broncos' all-time records. But NFL fans might be in for a shock, as Tebow actually is a franchise-record holder for a team that boasts all-time legends like Peyton Manning and John Elway.

In fact, Tebow is the only QB in franchise history that was drafted by the team and won a playoff game for Denver.

Of course, while Elway never played for a franchise other than the Broncos, he technically wasn't drafted by the team, as Denver acquired his rights in an infamous draft day trade with the Baltimore Colts. Manning, meanwhile, started his illustrious career with the Indianapolis Colts.

While Tebow's tenure in Denver never panned out like fans had hoped, it's still rather shocking that he's the only QB to have accomplished this feat with the Broncos.

Since drafting Tebow in 2010, the Broncos have used a total of six draft picks on quarterbacks. Among those six, Drew Lock is the only one that's still with the team.

Thanks to the influx of talent now surrounding Lock, perhaps the Missouri product can finally be the one to buck this strange trend. Until then, though, Tebow's name will remain etched in the Broncos' record books.
