Linemen flop too, it isnt just relegated to QB's, and if the financial downfall isnt what it once was to take a gamble on a top pick then shoot for the stars.
Franchise QB's win games regardless of who's blocking up front. They make mediocre linemen look like all pro's.
Tons of fail in this post.
Matthews hasn't been a problem this year. I watched some tape on him from www.draftbreakdown.com
and he did well. You can spend a few hours watching his tape and come to the same conclusion. He hasn't been a problem, but there is definitely an argument worth having on whether or not he is a #1 overall.
Joeckel got hurt this year in October, he's out for the season.
