Here are top 10 QB's by rating and the round they were drafted: Brady - 6 Garrard - 4 Romo - undrafted Rothlesberger - 1 Favre - 2 Manning - 1 Garcia - undrafted Brees - 2 Hasselback - 6 Cutler - 1 Percent by round drafted: 1 = 30% 2 = 20% 3 = 0% 4 = 10% 5 = 0% 6 = 20% undrafted = 20% Remarkably half of the top QBs were drafted after the 3rd round. And two of them weren't drafted at all! Of the top 3, Garrard was drafted the earliest at round 4. Brady was 6th, and Romo was undrafted. The league is littered with 1st round QB busts (Leaf, Mirer, etc) and our own #1 Bledsoe was run out of town too. Not only are you unlikely to find your QB in the 1st round, but given the money spent of 1st round QBs, you hurt your ability to fill out the rest of team. Not to mention loss of using 1st round pick on a different position. Now I feel a lot better about Cassell knowing he was a 7th rounder!!
