Lower-round QBs face long odds to make it in NFL

History dictates that it’s likely at least a couple of the five first-round quarterbacks won’t fulfill the hopes of the teams that drafted them. The odds facing the five QBs picked later in the draft are much longer with only three of the 26 QB picked in rounds two through four in the past eight drafts turning into successful NFL starters so far. The days of first-round snubs going onto superstar careers such as Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Drew Brees, or becoming solid long-term starters such as Matt Hasselbeck, Trent Green and Mark Brunell are much rarer these days.
