    I've been campaigning for him since September... Murray will be our next franchise QB. This is a no-brainer.

    He takes them directly from his magic eight-ball.

    Statistically drafting a QB in the middle rounds is pretty much the worst pick you can make in the draft. 1st and 2nd round or don't take 1.

    And yeah yeah, I know everybody is going to list the exceptions....

    That's because there are a ton of exceptions.

    There are not a "ton" of exceptions of QB's drafted in the 3rd-7th rounds who have had long term, play-off winning success in the nfl. A handful, but not even close to a ton.

    True.
    There are some great stories of successful (or fairly successful) QBs taken after rd 2.
    However, the list--especially in the last 15 years--is fairly short.
    Here are some of them :
    2000..Brady (6th)
    1994..Warner (UDFA)
    2003..Romo (UDFA)
    2012..Wilson (3rd)
    1994..Garcia (UDFA)
    1998..Hassleback (6th)
    1993..Brunell..(5th?)
    2002..Garrard (4th)

    Murray is Dalton pt 2. Garrett is probably in love with him

    Either use a #1 on a sure fire franchise QB or don't even waste the pick.

    If the cowboys drafted a QB with their first pick, it would be a wasted pick

    Wrong...Any pick used for a QB is a wasted pick.

    You are right. It us a waste of the pick if you look back at other drafts. The ideal of drafting one and developing him us a myth according to history.

    Agree completely.

    I'd even take a flyer on a late-rounder with a funky college career - like a part-time starter or even a talented backup at a big program - before I took a mid-round quarterback.

    Brady was always fighting for a starting job at Michigan. Warner wasn't a starter until a fifth-year senior. Brad Johnson was a backup at Florida State. Brunell split time as a starter with another player at Washington. They all had sort of abnormal college careers that hurt their draft stock.

    If a quarterback goes to a powerful university in a major conference and starts there for multiple years but can't get his draft stock higher than the fourth round (ala Murray), why would you want to draft him?
