Default No 2nd round QB.

I keep hearing some Crazy Talk about the Broncos going with a QB in the 2nd like that could be a decent Idea.

It's Not- QB is not a Regular position it is the premier position in football and as such is totally over drafted. If a player is not good enough for a team to go get immediately the first chance they get he is probably not good enough to be a good QB. Proof?

2 48 Jimmy Clausen QB Notre Dame Carolina Panthers
2 44 Pat White QB West Virginia Miami Dolphins
2 56 Brian Brohm QB Louisville Green Bay Packers
2 57 Chad Henne QB Michigan Miami Dolphins
2 36 Kevin Kolb QB Houston Philadelphia Eagles
2 40 John Beck QB Brigham Young Miami Dolphins
2 43 Drew Stanton QB Michigan State Detroit Lions
2 49 Kellen Clemens QB Oregon New York Jets
2 64 Tarvaris Jackson QB Alabama State Minnesota Vikings
2 32 Drew Brees QB Purdue San Diego Chargers
2 53 Quincy Carter QB Georgia Dallas Cowboys
2 59 Marques Tuiasosopo QB Washington Oakland Raiders

The only guy that has been successful Was drafted 10 years ago. His was a success brought on by a tremendous work ethic. And for the most part has happened in a city that he was not drafted by.

I thought about giving him credit, but I couldn't he is still seen as A High upside prospect 4 years later. Was also the Eagles first pick that year.(I think)

It's probably okay to draft a QB in the 2nd round if he's just a backup. Most of the guys on that list failed because they were thrown into the fire too soon IMO. Not that I would do it in our situation, we have too many other holes to go after a QB so soon.

i still believe Brohm has tremendous upside, but realistically how is he ever going to get a shot when he is slotted behind one of the 5 best QBs in the league

What about the third round? What was that Freeman kid in TB? Whatever the case the QB has to throw and think at the same time.

Thought the consensus was that Henne blew his chance with consistently poor decision making last year.

He was drafted and put on the practice squad by the Packers and is now the 3rd string QB for the Bills

Didn't they draft a good RB. Lot of people think that this year they should make the playoffs. Pretty good turn around in 3 years.

I thought Brohm got beat out by Matt Flynn for the backup QB job in Green Bay and has been wasting away since.
Its stupid to draft a QB high right now for this team.
I do know, I will throw something if we end up taking a fricken QB round 1/2/3.

There's always the exceptions. Rugbythug mentioned Drew Brees. Another notable exception is Tom Brady, who was picked up in the 6th round. If we draft a QB, we just need him to be better than Brady Quinn, which I don't think is hard to do...

He got yanked last year in a start for Buffalo in favor of a 7th round rookie. His career passer rating is 17.

0 tds and 3 ints (plus a fumble). ZERO offensive TDs.

Brohm is a ginormous bust. Buffalo will likely draft a QB and Brohm will get cut.

If we are going to take a flier on a 2nd or 3rd round QB to be the QB of the future, why the heck would we not just stick with Orton next year and let Tebow develop another year?

Anyone we would draft in this QB class (even at #2) is going to ride the bench behind Orton for a year...might as well be Tebow who at least has a year in the league under his belt. If it doesnt work out, throw our entire 2012 draft at someone to get Luck. It would be borderline retarded to draft another developmental QB with question marks when we already have three of that same type of QB on the roster.

We're going to end up with Tebow who the FO doesnt believe in, Quinn who sucks, and Ponder who will be the second coming of Brian Griese.

There is not a standout franchise QB in this draft. No to QB's at any point unless it is a late round project type (those don't work out so much either, but hey).

I was very specific for a reason. Any qb worth having goes in the first. After this everyone else is a developmental prospect and should not be touched till the 4 th.
