4. Tony Romo -- UDFA
5. Matt Schaub -- 3rd round
6. Eli Manning -- 1st round
7. Ben Roethlisberger -- 1st round
8. Alex Smith -- 1st round
9. Matthew Stafford -- 1st round
10. Matt Ryan -- 1st round
In the past 12 years, there have been 32 QBs taken in the first round. 6 of them are highly ranked right now.
Drafting a QB in the first round is a crap shoot.
Still looks like your chances of getting a "Starting QB" are better with 1st rounders.
