John Elway's competitive juices are flowing again.

The Hall of Fame quarterback who took over as the Denver Broncos' chief of football operations this year said of his first foray into the draft room: "I felt like I was playing a football game. I think that's why I was exhausted every night."

Elway said he constantly paced the room just like he used to do in the locker room before games or on the sideline between possessions.

Elway teamed up with general manager Brian Xanders and new coach John Fox in deciding who to pick, and the trio settled on seven defenders among the team's nine selections.
