Post Bears GM: Late-round QBs aren't worth it
I feel the same way. That is why I roll my eyes on the mid to late round quarterback talk that I've been hearing this offseason.

Bears GM: Late-round QBs aren't worth it

Eventually, the Bears will need to find a replacement for Cutler, whose new contract essentially locks him in for the next three seasons. But Emery was quick to caution against the idea of the Bears drafting a developmental quarterback in the mid-to-late rounds. The Bears used sixth and fifth round picks on quarterbacks Dan LeFevour [2010] and Nate Enderle [2011] and neither player panned out.

"I just did a little study. It's very interesting," Emery said. "That developmental theory doesn't hold a whole lot of water. There's entire classes of quarterbacks, since '06, I went back and looked at from Jay's on -- when people say developmental quarterbacks, OK, so who has gotten developed? There isn't a single quarterback after the third round since 2006 that has been a long-term starter. So you're either developing thirds, and most of them have been wiped out of the league. So to get a quality quarterback, you've got to draft them high. That 2012 class is a blip on the radar that's unusual, highly unusual.

"Most of the starters in this league come from the first and second round. So that's where you need to take a quarterback. So when you talk about quarterback every year, they have to be somebody that you truly believe will beat out the second and third quarterback that you perceive on your roster. And if not, history shows that you shouldn't make that pick."

Yes, you can find late rd gems. Yes, we can sign scrubs with "potential" to "develop", but it goes back to my theory, you can either play or you can't. No excuses...

Unless of course you pick a Tom Brady in the 6th round. That is like winning the lottery odds.

Here come all the examples of late round QB's lol - his point still stands, successful QB's from the first two rounds far exceed the gems found in the later rounds.

Yep, but like he said, Brady is like hitting the lotto. Posting a pic of Warner validates his point, Warner came out 15 years ago. Brady came out in '00.

We can say the same thing about virtually any premium position...
