This isn't Brady Quinn, JaMarcus Russell, or Tim Tebow that we're talking about here. This isn't even the Stafford's, Ryan's, Flacco's or Sanchez' of the next level. This is legitimately the best QB prospect since Peyton. Hell, arguably the best since Elway.
If you have even the least bit of uncertainty regarding your QB situation, then you would be a complete and utter jackass to pass on Andrew Luck.
Though I agree with your assessment of his talent - I think you're exaggerating the circumstances under what condition a team would take him. Of that second tier of QBs you listed, none of those teams will take him. For both money invested, and political reasons.
