I was looking for an article about Bill Walsh and his opininion that Jim Druckenmiller and Rick Meier were destined to be great Qbs and came across this article:
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/slead.htm

Look at these 1st round picks and and be afraid:
Since the 1990-2001 draft, 23 quarterbacks have been selected in the first round.
Year Player Team
1990 Jeff George Indianapolis
Andre Ware Detroit
1991 Dan McGwire Seattle L
Todd Marinovich L.A. Raiders
1992 David Klingler Cincinnati
Dave Brown N.Y. Giants
Tommy Maddox Denver
1993 Drew Bledsoe New England
Rick Mirer Seattle
1994 Heath Shuler Washington
Trent Dilfer Tampa Bay
1995 Steve McNair Tennessee
Kerry Collins Carolina
1997 Jim Druckenmiller
1998 Peyton Manning Indianapolis
Ryan Leaf San Diego
1999 Tim Couch Cleveland
Donovan McNabb Philadelphia
Akili Smith Cincinnati
Daunte Culpepper Minnesota

Scouting is getting better though lately I've noticed. Less and less busts.

Very True. Especially for the Dolphins with Saban only one year removed from the college ranks. I'm sure he has plenty of solid sources.

its like the lottery you have to play to win and we never seem to play this lottery so we have a Gus at qb.

WINSTON JUSTICE!!!

Safest pick in the draft and will make whatever QB we have under center look MUCH better.

Could you not bash Frerotte for one thread! Like come on man your getting as bad as nopony and death7star. Like are you 3 all friends or something. I think with Saban's drafting he would get the 1 QB who can be at least a little successful!

Got no problem with that as long as we draft a Qb otherwise with Gus its like paying a swat team to guard your garbage can.
