Dustin :

Are you serious? The back up position is a last resort. There is like a 1 in 100 shot that they go in and even less shot that they'll do good. A GM's gotta squeeze them in under the cap. If you get lucky you get lucky but you don't build your team around that

I think the back QB is the 4 forth most important positition behind starting QB, LB and strong saftey.
