Whoever you pick in teh first sets you back. I don't understand how a QB does it anymore. Tyson Jackson set the Chiefs back, Glenn Dorsey set the Chiefs back etc.
You're counting plenty of guys in that stat like Blaine Gabbert that prove my point more than yours.
Of course Jackson and Dorsey set us back, those were bad picks. A bust hurts equally no matter what position it is.
The problem there wasn't that we picked defensive ends instead of QBs, it's that we picked poor defensive ends.
If we had gotten two guys worthy of high first round picks, that would have been huge for us.
We'd still be without a QB, but we wouldn't be saying "We won 2 games last year", we'd be saying "We're an inch away, if only we can find a QB."
