You don't need to be elite to be a franchise QB.
Brady, Brees, Peyton and Rodgers are amazing QBs. They're rare.
You don't pass on a young, great talent where the skys the limit in favor of something that might be.
Luck, Ryan, RGIII, Wilson, Cam, Kaep. All good, solid QBs. Elite maybe not. But these are franchise pieces. QBs you build around.
