If you're a general manager or head coach, the clock is ticking.

This is exactly what Steve Spagnolo tried to do in STL when he drafted Chris Long #2 overall instead of Matt Ryan or Joe Flacco. He probably thought he could wait and draft his franchise QB later, but when he finally did draft a QB, time had run out on him.

If he had taken Matt Ryan or Joe Flacco instead of Chris Long in 2008, Spagnolo might still have his job in St Louis.
