As everyone knows, the most important position on a football team is the quarterback position. It is the quarterback who is in charge of getting the ball to wherever it needs to go. It is his job to command the huddle and fire his team up.
He is the one who must read the opposing defense and audible at the line of scrimmage. In some cases, he also needs to take off and run for the first down or the scoring pylon. Most importantly, he must be able to do all of this week in and week out.
It is no wonder why teams constantly search for ways to improve play at the quarterback position. Often, that search begins and ends with the NFL Draft. Whether a team needs to replace an aging veteran or a clueless youngster, it will most likely look for the solution on draft day.
The Colts hit the jackpot with their selection of Andrew Luck last season. Of course, at the other end of the spectrum lies Brandon Weeden of the Cleveland Browns.The 2013 NFL Draft will be no different, as there are plenty of talented signal-callers who will begin their quest for NFL glory.
