John Elway has a knack of finding talented players who keep making PFF’s Top 101. With four more this year, the Denver Broncos have averaged five players a year on this list.

NFL: AFC Championship-New England Patriots at Denver Broncos Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Pro Football Focus posted this graphic of the teams with the most players in their annual Top 101 player list since 2010. The Denver Broncos, unsurprisingly, were near the top of that list having won the AFC's top seed several of those seasons and advanced to a Super Bowl twice in that span.

Two names, LB Von Miller and CB Chris Harris, Jr. made the list four times. Had injury not effected them, I'd dare say they'd be there for five straight. The Super Bowl 50 roster had the most names, with six players selected to their Top 101 list.

The Broncos only had three OL in LT Ryan Clady, RT Louis Vazquez and C Matt Paradis during that time span making the Top 101 list. WR Demaryius Thomas made list three times, QB Peyton Manning, twice. Other names like WR Emmanuel Sanders, DE Derek Wolfe, CB Aqib Talib, DT Malik Jackson, DT Terence ‘Pot Roast’ Williams and CB Dominic Rodgers-Cromartie were named. Also, our beloved CB Champ Bailey, made it in 2012.

From the drafted, to the undrafted, to the Free Agent pick-up, John Elway has shown that not only can he build a Championship roster, but has an eye for gifted players.
