Draft Analysis: Waited too long for a QB

submit to reddit

Have you ever found yourself in round 6 or 7 without a quarterback and think to yourself:

"Hey, there's a few decent QBs left.  I might be able to stock up on a RB or WR now and also sneak a solid QB in the next round. What a steal that would be!"

Well, that's what I was thinking in this 10-team draft as team #10. At the turn for rounds 5 and 6, I took a gamble that didn't pay off.

I selected Willie Parker and DeSean Jackson in rounds 5 and 6 with the hope of finding either Romo, Ryan, or McNabb waiting for me in round 7.  Alas, they were all gone.  I resorted to drafting a quarterback in my personal 3rd tier of QBs, Matt Schaub, in round 8.

As this team stands, I'm not that happy with it, but it's not too bad.  I have tons of depth in RB and WR that could be used as trade bait if needed.

I think this also demonstrates the well-known problem of drafting at the turn.  It's hard to predict what everyone else will do when you have a long time in between picks.

How about you?  Ever wait too long for a QB in a mock or real draft?  How did it turn out for you?
