Top Ten Draft Picks Are For Superstars

If that's true then why would anyone advocate drafting Tannehill at 8? He can in no way be considered a college superstar, he posted OK numbers and didn't win, on that subject, Sherman couldn't win with him in college so what makes anyone think he can win with him in the NFL?

Not only was he not a superstar in college, but he has very little experience, yes he has a strong arm, yes he is mobile, but he didn't win and threw a lot of INTs, sounds like a 3rd round pick to me. Sanchez at least was a winner with his small experience, and he was a QB his entire time in college.

Seriously, only Oswieler and Foles weren't winners of this years top QBs, and Tannehill's TD to INT numbers are worse than most of these QBs;

Luck 37-10

RGIII 37-6

Weeden 37-13

Cousins 24-7

Lindley 23-8,

and again we have comparable numbers to Osweiler and Foles,

Osweiler 26-13

Foles 28-14

Tannehill 29-15 (He was 6th in the country with INTs)

Lets throw in that he did blow big leads against good teams, and didn't win against good competition, what does this say to us, he isn't comparable to the top talent, but he is with lesser talent...

This all leads me to one huge question, with overdrafting of QBs sooo prevalent, and the bust ratio of those players sooo huge,

WHY WOULD WE DRAFT A QB AT 8 THAT WAS NOT A SUPERSTAR IN COLLEGE?
