Answer

Yes, a pronoun can be an antecedent that is replaced by another
pronoun.

For example:

You and I can finish this if we work
together. (the pronouns ‘you and I’ are the compound antecedent of
the pronoun ‘we’)

Everyone, put your pencils down. (the
pronoun ‘your’ takes the place of the pronoun ‘everyone’)
