Drafting a QB approach

Posted by Chris Brown on February 23, 2010 – 12:06 pm

An interesting write up from YahooSports Jason Cole who outlines some ‘do’s and don’ts’ when drafting a QB.

What I found most interesting was the lead in the story, which dealt with how if the 49ers knew they’d have five different offensive coordinators in five years, they would’ve never made Alex Smith the number one pick in the draft in 2005.

Of course there was no way for them to know that, but it made me think of Trent Edwards’ situation. He’s had three coordinators in three years. Continuity has its advantages, especially when you’re trying to develop a young quarterback.

Some of the stats Cole had on how teams like Indy and Pittsburgh built around their franchise quarterbacks in succeeding drafts with more offensive players was also interesting.
