The last time I spent a 1st round pick on a QB was Rich Gannon way back after his monster year with the Raiders. And if I recall, he sucked the year I drafted him. After that, I said "never again." I'm usually one of the last 2 or 3 guys to take a QB in my league, and I'm in the playoffs every year. Look at Eli Manning's numbers from last year...4000 yards, 27 TD's 14 INT's. I can get him in the 9th or 10th round. Or I can reach in the 3rd round for someone like Romo (4400, 26, 9) or Rivers (4200, 28, 9). The difference is what ? 200-400 passing yards and a couple more interceptions? And I can get him a solid 5-6 rounds later? Meanwhile I'm hoarding RB's and WR's? Yeah I'll take Eli Manning, Jay Cutler and Carson Palmer every day of the week. I find those QB's on my teams alot during my mocks, sometimes a couple of them, and I always feel satisfied with the way my team looks top to bottom.
