These guys should have questions about them, as do most prospects, but I certainly don't think it's a bad year to be looking at QB.
I agree with your first sentence. I think some, not all, but some of the criticism of this year's QB group stems from the fact that none are Andrew Luck. Andrew Luck caliber QBs only come around every 15 years or so. The last one was the guy everyone was/is comparing Luck to...Peyton Manning.
Just because none of these guys are Andrew Luck doesn't mean that they aren't good or can't be pro-bowl caliber QBs.
There have been a good number of QBs come out that weren't Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning that have gone on to great success. And there is likely to be at least a couple from this draft do the same. The trick is finding which one(s).
