It's the QB's that are the 5th to 8th best players that get pushed up to the number one spot because they're QB's
I don't like the thought that just because you need a QB you have to take one high no matter what. Look at the Jaguars/Titans/Vikings they are stuck with bad QB's because they needed one and reached for a guy that was not that good.
Let's just say for a scenario that Bridgewater kinda has a down year and is ranked in the 15 to 20 range and has some questions about his game, a team picking first needs a QB do they take the best player or the 20th best player and pass on Clowney for an average QB?
If you were starting a team would you take a truly dominant pass rusher like Watt/Ware or a average QB like Cutler/Schaub?
All I am trying to say is a team shouldn't take a lower level QB just because they need one.
