I totally agree that the better usage of that pick would have been taking Brees, in hindsight, but spending a late first round pick for 5 years of elite QB play is a deal Id do every time.
It wasn't five years. It was four.
He was piss poor in 2001 and much better from 2002-2004. By 2006, he was shot.
Drew Brees would have been the better selection, by far.
