This draft is frequently known as the Quarterback class of 1983, because six quarterbacks were taken in the first round. Of these quarterbacks, four played in the Super Bowl, and three have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The next highest number of quarterbacks taken in the first round is the five taken in the 1999 NFL Draft. All six quarterbacks were drafted by American Football Conference (AFC) teams. In eleven of the sixteen years following this draft, the AFC was represented in the Super Bowl by a team led by one of these quarterbacks: the Denver Broncos by John Elway, the Miami Dolphins by Dan Marino, the Buffalo Bills by Jim Kelly, or the New England Patriots by Tony Eason.
