Yes, but the average draft position for those 7 was #80. Only 2010's draft had the top 7 QBs selected averaging a lower draft slot over the past 13 drafts.

I think this group would have gone higher, had they matched up with the trend of athletic QBs. The two QBs with plus athletic ability were the 1st 2 QBs selected. Had Barkley and Glennon been able to run 4.6 40's, they would have gone in the 1st or 2nd rounds, as well.
