A first rounder is supposed to be a stud. That's why they're picked first. A late rounder is minimum loss with nothing but upside.

That being said, my words are getting a little twisted here. I'm not advocating not picking a first round quarterback. I just think it's stupid to throw a season on a guy who's draft value is based on playing weak competition in college.
"throw a season?"

our pieces are in place...we have an elite WR, a good slot guy, and a 1st round #2...

we have a good TE (injury prone)...

we have an emerging offensive line...

and we have Jamaal Charles...plus a gadget back who could probably be pretty useful if we had a QB who could make reads

we're set on offense

Defensively we have a top 5 rusher in the NFL...we have a ton of highly drafted, highly skilled DL (whether or not they live up to their potential I don't know)...

Belcher and DJ have played really good ILB this year...

we have 2 real good CB's, a pretty good nickel...an elite safety...

SO HOW ARE WE THROWING A SEASON!??!

WE'RE 1 GOD DAMN FRANCHISE QB AWAY (WITH SOME FILLER PIECES) FROM BEING AN ABSOLUTE CONTENDER.

Draft picks are terrific....they really are. They are also overrated on this board (as proven time and time again) and any time you can get a sure thing (Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck) you do what it takes to get that player...

even if it costs two drafts

(again, I know this is unrealistic, no one is going to trade two drafts, I'm just making a point)
