This is almost common sense, yet so many people are moving away from the tradition of drafting a running back with the first draft pick.
With Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Michael Vick all capable of putting up enormous fantasy numbers, people are drafting a top quarterback instead of a top running back.
I wouldn't do that. In fact, there are at least five running backs that I would draft before drafting a quarterback. Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Ray Rice, Jamaal Charles and Chris Johnson are the cream of the crop and are more worthy of a top draft pick than any quarterback.
The main reason why is the depth at the quarterback position. Jay Cutler, who most have ranked as the 15th best quarterback, will put up similar numbers to Aaron Rodgers, the top ranked quarterback. The same can't be said for running backs because there is no way that Cedric Benson is going to have the same fantasy season as Adrian Peterson.
Stick with tradition and draft a running back with the first overall pick.
