Why look back to 1999 and make the case that it's too risky to draft a quarterback in the first round. How about drawing our conclusions from a slightly more current draft, say, 2009. The Lions take Stafford and suddenly, after just one season, there is optimism that the Lions are finally on a path to success. The Jets draft Sanchez and go deep in the playoffs. The NFL is more of a quarterback league than any time in its history. There are simply not 32 "franchise" quarterbacks available in the league and the draft combined. If you have a opportunity to draft a franchise QB, you must take that gamble. Sure, the probability of a bust at QB is higher than anyother position. But not to take that risk guarentees failure.
