With the exception of last years draft, which I think it is still too early to definitively say, there has been at least one franchise QB in every draft for the past decade besides 2007 (weakest QB draft in recent memory). So I would say the chances of there being a franchise QB in this draft are much higher than not. The problem is, selecting the right one...but all of the Big 3 (Teddy, Manziel, and Bortles) show a lot of potential and this is definitely not as weak as a QB draft as some people say.
2012-Andrew Luck, Ryan Tannehill, Nick Foles, RG3 (maybe)
2011- Cam Netwon, Andy Dalton, Colin Kaepernick
2009- Matt Stafford
2008- Matty Ryan, Joe Flacco
2006- Jay Cutler
2005- Aaron Rodgers, Alex Smith
2004- Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers, Big Ben, Matt Schaub (just kidding)
