    This is why people love draft day. Fun read however i don't agree with the last paragraph conclusion that it's ok to pass on a franchise QB (if in fact you believe a guy is one).

    Who's to say what would have happened if Vick was on San Diego? They seem to have had a better system, especially for QB's, and maybe they would have taught him to be a QB. Maybe he would have stayed out of dog fighting, and won 3 super bowls. Who knows?

    If you have a sure-thing franchise QB, then I agree that you have to take him. However, there are no sure things; especially not a guy like Michael Vick. I think he turned out to be a lot better player than many expected, but he was still a risky pick. In the end, the most ricky pick by far is QB. It seems like most of them don't live up to their hype. So unless you have a sure thing pro-style QB waiting there to pick, I think it's alright to go with a much more sure-thing position like running back.

    He's turned out to be nowhere near the player people thought he would be. He was thought to be an unstoppable running/passing beast. Hasn't happened. He's been mostly an below average QB who can run like a RB.
