It's a good thing the quarterback experts are on edge this week because, frankly, they were getting cocky. The top picks in the last twoNational Football League drafts were Sam Bradford, to St. Louis, and Matthew Stafford, to Detroit.
That's pinning tails on two donkeys.
Mark Sanchez, the fifth overall pick in 2009, by the New York Jets, was a fastball right down Broadway. Josh Freeman, selected No. 17 the same year by Tampa Bay, already has passed for 35 touchdowns and 5,306 yards.
In 2008, Matt Ryan went to Atlanta No.3 overall and Baltimore ended up taking no flack for Joe Flacco at No. 18.
