How long can I wait to take a QB?

qb's

Watch who your other gm's take. If they've all taken their first qb, then you're probably safe to wait until it comes back to you in the 6th. I drafted fourth in my 12-team league and got Pennington at the end of the sixth round...and Garcia in the 10th! If you can afford to wait, take rb's in the first two rounds without fail and an top-drawer wr in the 3rd and then look to fill out your wr's in the 4th and 5th (or take your third rb). Tight ends go in the 10th round+, defenses 12th+ and kickers after that. Good luck.

Just relax. It takes a cool and steady hand to pull off the QB Free Fall. Old article from last year, but the same rings true. Hasselback was a good late pick last year. Warner didn't pan out, but you were still able to get Bulger late and he panned out too. The same will happen this season. Hey, last year even Kitna was serviceable. Players that don't look that sexy now will look pretty good come the end of the season. Wait and see.

In a draft a few years ago, I waited until the 10th round of a 14 round draft to pick my first QB. Drafted a backup in the 11th or 12th and picked another up in free agency after week 5. These were the only 3 QB's on my roster at any point during the season. I took the championship home at season's end. :-D
It can't always be done, but the main thing is keep with your rankings. Don't let a run on a position force you to change your strategy or rankings. When you reach to fill a position, you're only hurting yourself in the long run.

Preach on! Preach on! ;-D

Just for the record. I think McNabb will be huge this year, but I still won't draft him at the end of 2nd or begining of 3rd because too many other QBs will be floating out there.

OK, I'm going to try it. The only other factor is that we are only drafting for 12 rounds. This may move selections up a little bit, but also leaves a lot of good players on the WW.

I got Pennington in the 5th, Brady in the 8th and Gannon in the 10th, but all could well have dropped deeper than that. I've only been in one draft thus far this year, but here are the complete QB draft spots (10-team league):

Culpepper -- Round 1 (stupid -- Barlow, Faulk, Moss, S Davis all still available)

Vick -- Rnd 2

McNabb -- Rnd 3

McNair, Hasselbeck -- Rnd 4

Pennington -- Rnd 5

Favre -- Rnd 6

T Green, Brooks, Bulger -- Rnd 7 (Why do people love Brooks so much?)

Brady -- Rnd 8 (A steal)

Garcia -- Rnd 9

Gannon -- Rnd 10

Plummer, Delhomme -- Rnd 11

Bledsoe -- Rnd 12

Harrington -- Rnd 13

Brad Johnson -- Rnd 14

Analyze that...

Top-10 QBs are plucked off waivers every year... You could probably get B. Johnson in the 12+ round, and handcuff him with Chris Simms off waivers. IMHO, TB is going to put up some pretty sick passing stats this year.
