I had Williams as a first when I was counting but left him off the list at the end.
Personally, I had no interest in the argument about QB's and draft position. I just found the information itself interesting.
Players are selected in the first round because someone thinks that they're talented AND that they'll fill a need. Usually those people are right but sometimes they're wrong. Sometimes a guy drops for reasons out of his control that have nothing to do with how he plays. Sometimes a guy just needs to be in the right place at the right time. As long as a guy can play, I really don't care where he's drafted but I'm not going to hold it against a guy if he's drafted in the first round, either.
