Twenty-seven quarterbacks have been selected in the first round of the draft over the past 10 years.Around the League ranked them from top to bottom. The core criteria is a mix of career achievement and future potential (for instance, Cam Newton at No. 5? You bet, based on what we've seen and what we expect to see).Rosenthal and I engaged in a furious two-minute debate over IM, shifting some guys around, generating some consensus, disagreeing in other areas. We thought we'd throw it your way.

You're an NFL general manager. Who do you want leading your team ?

1. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers (No. 11, 2004)

After 9, that list is pretty horrific.

Matt Ryan at #6 and Palmer at #9 ?

Based on the core criteria how does Carson Palmer figure at #9 spot.

Future potential?

I am pretty sure Carlson's best days are past.

He's entering the least QB friendly offensive system in the league or something.

Ha. Well, it should be interesting. A lot of Sanchez guys would eat crow. If Mark is a ground an pound type of QB, so be it. He runs the play action very nicely. I would be very happy.

Plenty of hope for both guys. I think Bradford is the better pure passer.

The word is out on him.

He doesnt read defenses particularly well, turnover prone, locks on to receivers and take away his run game and he is screwed.

But why isn't the word out on Freeman yet whose started about the same amount of games?
