John Elway, Brian Xanders Scouting Prospects At Oklahoma-Baylor

Sunday November 20th, 2011

The celebrity guests at the Oklahoma-Baylor tilt Saturday night may not have the star power of the quartet at the Oregon game, but they're far more significant from a practical standpoint.  With the Denver Broncos idle this weekend following a Thursday night game, GM Brian Xanders and executive VP of football operations John Elway are watching the Sooners and the Bears, reports Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

The natural assumption would be that the Broncos are scouting the top-prospect QBs, Landry Jones of Oklahoma and Robert Griffin III of Baylor.  But as Klis points out, there are plenty of other NFL prospects on these two college squads including standout Oklahoma linebacker Travis Lewis.
