Here are the last ten years QB's taken after the first 44 picks in the draft. Look at all the stars. I bolded all the ones that have panned out so far to become good NFL QB's so you could clearly see the value. To be fair this list does not included Drew Brees who was 33rd overall selection (first pick of second round) or Tony Romo who was undrafted. These are only the guys taken 44th or later.

2010

ROUND 2: Jimmy Clausen, Panthers (48th overall)

ROUND 3: Colt McCoy, Browns (85); Armanti Edwards, Panthers (89)

ROUND 4: Mike Kafka, Eagles (122)

ROUND 5: John Skelton, Cardinals (155); Jonathan Crompton, Chargers (168)

ROUND 6: Rusty Smith, Titans (176); Dan LeFevour, Bears (181); Joe Webb, Vikings (199); Tony Pike, Panthers (204)

ROUND 7: Levi Brown, Bills (209); Sean Canfield, Saints (239); Zac Robinson, Patriots (250)

2009

ROUND 4: Stephen McGee, Cowboys (101)

ROUND 7: Matt Flynn, Packers (209); Alex Brink, Texans (223)

2007

ROUND 3: Trent Edwards, Bills (92)

ROUND 5: Jeff Rowe, Bengals (151); Troy Smith, Ravens (174)

ROUND 6: Jordan Palmer, Redskins (205)

ROUND 7: Tyler Thigpen, Vikings (217)

ROUND 5: Dan Orlovsky, Lions (145); Adrian McPherson, Saints (152)

ROUND 4: Luke McCown, Browns (106)

ROUND 5: Craig Krenzel, Bears (148)

ROUND 6: Andy Hall, Eagles (185); Josh Harris, Ravens (187); Jim Sorgi, Colts (193); Jeff Smoker, Rams (201); John Navarre, Cardinals (202).

ROUND 7: Cody Pickett, 49ers (217); Casey Bramlet, Bengals (218); Matt Mauck, Broncos (225); B.J. Symons, Texans (248); Bradlee Van Pelt, Broncos (250)

2003

ROUND 3: Dave Ragone, Texans (88); Chris Simms, Buccaneers (97)

ROUND 4: Seneca Wallace, Seahawks (110)

ROUND 5: Brian St. Pierre, Steelers (163)

ROUND 6: Drew Henson, Texans (192); Brooks Bollinger, Jets (200); Kliff Kingsbury, Patriots (201)

ROUND 7: Gibran Hamdan, Redskins (232); Ken Dorsey, 49ers (241).

2002

ROUND 3: Josh McCown, Cardinals (81)

ROUND 4: David Garrard, Jaguars (108); Rohan Davey, Patriots (117)

ROUND 5: Randy Fasani, Panthers (137); Kurt Kittner, Falcons (158); Brandon Doman, 49ers (163); Craig Nall, Packers (164)

ROUND 6: J.T. O’Sullivan, Saints (186)

ROUND 7: Seth Burford, Chargers (216); Jeff Kelly, Seahawks (232); Wes Pate, Ravens (236)

2001

ROUND 2: Quincy Carter, Cowboys (53); Marques Tuiasosopo, Raiders (59)

ROUND 4: Chris Weinke, Panthers (106); Sage Rosenfels, Redskins (109); Jesse Palmer, Giants (125)

ROUND 5: Mike McMahon, Lions (149); A.J. Feeley, Eagles (155)

ROUND 6: Josh Booty, Seahawks (172); Josh Heupel, Dolphins (177).

In summary, yeah there may be busts at QB in the first round but the odds are exponentially higher that those guys in the first round turn into good QB's than waiting to find value at the QB position in the later rounds.

Two guys in ten years have panned out.

It simply doesn't happen.

Why wait?? There are two QB's that have high first round grades this year. I'm just not sure what some of you guys want?? Just because Cam isn't Andrew Luck doesn't mean he isn't just as likely to pan out.

As a matter of fact recent history suggests that Luck would have a just as high a likelihood to fail as Cam Newton. The only reason Luck is rated is high as he is is because he played in a Pro System. Well only one QB that came from a true pro system has succeeded lately (Matt Ryan). The fact of the matter is that Luck (like every other QB to come from a pro system) was overrated because of the offense he played in at the college level.

So what do we wait for? What is your criteria for a worthy QB??

I said to be good QB's. If I downgraded from good QB's to serviceable I would probably have included Gerrard and Kyle Orton.

Not sure I would call those two really good QB's at this point but it depends on what your definition of good is.

Luck was rated higher because he was the complete package, no weaknesses, no red flags.

Luck was light years ahead of Newton, let's not reach that far.

Garrard and Orton deserve to be included in my opinion but still doesn't change the conclusion. 'preciate the post.

I'm not saying Andrew Luck wouldn't be a great player, but he does get a lot of extra credit because he plays in a pro system. I wonder if he would have such high grades if he came from a run and shoot offense or a spread?? Probably not.

And yet year after year first round pro style QB's are failing

Because losing don't bother them. They don't have a passion for winning. Image is more important.

I guess I looked at from this perspective.

If Kansas City or Houston had the number one overall pick somehow (like a trade for instance) and Andrew Luck was available. Those two teams would pass on Luck because they have a good QB in place.

Denver with Orton or Jacksonville with Garrard would not pass on Luck in a similar situation.

But those guys are serviceable just not good.
