If were going to take a QB this year or next, It had better be in the 1st round. The stats are appauling on how little 2nd+ rounders actually pan out. Take a look at this list of QB's drafted from 2006-2009 (jury still out on the 2010 class) in the 2nd round or later... Kellen Clemens Tavaris Jackson Charlie Whitehurst Brodie Croyle Ingle Martin Omar Jacobs Reggie McNeal Bruce Gradkowski DJ Shockley Kevin Kolb John Beck Trent Edwards Isiah Stabeck Jeff Rowe Troy Smith Jordan Palmer Tyler Thigpen Brian Brohm Chad Henne Kevin O'Connell John David Booty Dennis Dixon Erik Ainge Colt Brennan Andre Woodson Matt Flynn Alex Brink Pat White Stephen McGee Rhett Bomar Nate Davis Tom Brandstater Mike Teel Keith Null Curtis Painter Not one of these QB's currently has a starting job. A few of them have even lost the only starting job they were annointed with, some of them have lost it twice, and some oft them aren't even in the league anymore.. The point is, they all suck. Pretty clear evidence that if your drafting a QB in the 2nd round or later it had better be to backup your allstar, because no question the QB's from the 06-09 draft classes taken in the later rounds are filling the backup roles across the league at this point. You don't draft a franchise QB in the 2nd round, period. Scouts and technology have gotten good enough to weed out the phenoms from the busts. You draft your franchise QB in the 1st round, because by the 2nd round he's already been picked.
