Only in the eyes of the idiot reporters and mocksters.
QB has gone first overall ten out of the last twelve years.
2012: Andrew Luck
2011: Cam Newton
2010: Sam Bradford
2009: Matt Stafford
2007: Jamarcus Russell
2005: Alex Smith
2004: Eli Manning
2003: Carson Palmer
2002: David Carr
2001: Michael Vick
And the importance of the position has only gone up since the 2004 pass interferrence rule change/enforcement.
And one could seriously make the argument that Matt Ryan should have gone #1 instead of #3 in 2008.
And Geno Smith is, IMO, a better prospect at the same level than every guy above but one.
Don Banks is a retard.
