INDIANAPOLIS -- Since 1990, there has been only one draft -- the Donovan McNabb draft of 1999 -- in which six quarterbacks were selected in the first two rounds.

This spring, six quarterbacks -- Matt Ryan, Brian Brohm, Chad Henne, Joe Flacco, Andre' Woodson and John David Booty -- are grading out as first- and second-round talents. Yet none of the six has exploded off the draft charts as a sure-bet franchise starter.

Having spent the weekend at the NFL combine watching the quarterbacks and listening to the chatter about them, I'm worried that teams in need of quarterbacks will once again misfire as they try to solidify the highest-profile position in football. Full Story – ESPN
