If our staff believes Stafford has the tools and the demeanor to make a last minute drive to win the game as in the most recent Super Bowl with the Steelers then they would be remiss in their duty to pass him up. Of course, if they don't believe that way then trade away or pick someone else.
Captain Obvious says some 1st round QB's work out and some don't. What makes the difference are intangibles.
Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl. He had the "IT" factor of the major QB's of the last 20 years?

If Matt can stay healthy, he's one of the better QB's in the league right now and he's in an offense that will allow him to flourish.
A lot of non-great QB's have made it to the Super Bowl. At least one non-great QB is considered great because his team took him to multiple Super Bowl victories. QB's frequently get credit for victories that's undeserved. Football is a team sport and there's a lot to be said for being the right guy at the right time in the right place.
