you're looking at guys like cutler, palmer, cassel, roethlisberger, guys who could produce top10 numbers at a fraction of the cost of the bigger names. i would consider drafting skill position players until round 7 (shooting for a stud TE if possible) and then pick up two QBs in the 8-10 spots, aiming for two of those guys. you can platoon them, or if one emerges, play him weekly. you'll fill up all of your weekly starters with strong players, and you should end up with some very playable QBs as well.
i've been mocking this way and putting together some very nice teams.
I somewhat agree except I think you need a better QB to rely on than drafting cutler, palmer, cassel as your #1 starting QB. I used to have the same exact theory as you until I decided its not worth it to draft 6 or 7 straight rounds just filling up your starting roster spots before taking your #1 QB because players such as; T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Vincent Jackson, Roy Williams, Braylon Edwards, Chad Johnson, Hines Ward, Sanatana Moss, Thomas Jones, LJ, Lynch, Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez, Greg Olsen etc. who you would be drafting around rounds 5-6 are not really fantasy difference makers imo and would not be worth taking over a top QB like Rodgers and Romo.
On the other hand, last year in the first 5 rounds I drafted 3 RBs and 2 WRs taking Derek Anderson as my 6th pick. Obviously he didnt work out for me but I also drafted Jay Cutler in the 10th round and still ended up winning which was very lucky chance that he fell to me that late and turned out to be a great QB.
So im not sure what the best draft strategy is but I wouldn't change if I could go back and not have picked Anderson just wait to draft a QB and gamble on my Cutler pick I think thats too risky I say get a good QB in rounds 4-6 depending on how the draft goes don't let them all get taken McNabb is the last top guy, then get one of cutler, palmer, cassel, roethlisberger as backup
