Defense are different than they were in the 80's and mid 90's. Elway and Young would have a tough time surviving now. 80's Dlineman are 10's linebackers. 80's linebackers are 10's safeties, and so on.

Elway and Young didnt have the speed of RG3 either (has any QB?). That said, I would agree if their is anyone to emulate, its those 2. However they are not completely similar players.
