The position of quarterback is by far the most valuable position in football, and if you want evidence of that, check the list of quarterbacks who have won the most recent Super Bowls.
Aaron Rodgers beat Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees beat Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger beat Kurt Warner, Eli Manning beat Tom Brady and Peyton Manning beat Rex Grossman. To make a run at the NFL title, it takes an elite quarterback.
Meanwhile, elite running backs across the league are suffering on poor teams. The NFL’s leading rusher, Maurice Jones-Drew, played for a team that finished 5-11. Adrian Peterson played for a team that was 3-13. Chris Johnson, LeSean McCoy and Stephen Jackson all finished outside of the playoffs.
This year’s draft class features some teams that are in desperate need of a quarterback. Outside of the two QBs that may be considered elite (Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III), there is still a host of teams that are in desperate need of QB help.
Whether that means that they might trade up or take later-round flier on the likes of a Kellen Moore, these teams are absolutely in need of QB help if they ever want to succeed in the coming seasons.
