NewCliche21 Posted November 20, 2011 Share Posted November 20, 2011 If you could guarantee that a top draft picked QB is destined to be great, I understand the logic in this thread. But the league has shown that the great QBs come from various positions in the draft. What position was Rodgers drafted in? Did the packers have to suck to get a great QB? Brees? Brady? Big Ben was out of the top 5? You're telling me the chances of finding the franchise guy increases THAT dramatically by moving from the 8th-10th pick to the 2nd/3rd that it justifies stooping to the level of wanting to lose. Sorry but that just isn't in my DNA I'll guarantee that a top-five pick has a much better chance of being "that guy" than other picks. Off the top of my head: 1) Sammy Baugh 2) Joe Namath 3) Len Dawson 4) Bob Griese 5) Bradshaw 6) McMahon 7) Plunkett 8) Aikman 9) Elway 10) Manning 11) Manning I didn't even list how many Super Bowls these guys won, and I didn't go through each Super Bowl or players who at least got to Super Bowls, unlike what we've done for the past 20 years. I also didn't list the players in other positions in the top five of the first or the ones in the top five of each consecutive round. I also didn't list the picks that we could use to trade down and scoop up any other player that you can name. A higher draft choice ALWAYS puts you in a better position for the future than a meaningless win. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
