Brady - no doubt, frankly falls into the blind damn luck category.
Russell Wilson - sure looks like it so far.
Nick Foles - again, sure looks good so far.
Now how many have been drafted in that time period?
There have been 25 drafted in the bottom half of the 2nd or the 3rd in that time frame. Figured going all the way down to the 6th would be goofy. That's 2 out of 25.
The drop off in waiting a round has to be considered.
Good point but the question I keep asking myself is do we have to have a franchise QB? Of course, we all go back & forth over evals but we like the real guys can only make guesses based on what we see and hear from others. We need so much + 1-1 has to be a player with least risk possible for me. Prior to 2013 I was hoping we could start taking some risk players 2014 draft but no way now.
