Daddy, where do Super Bowl quarterbacks come from?

One of the big questions that will get resolved on Thursday night is where will Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel get drafted? Also, how many quarterbacks will be drafted in the first round?

“Four quarterbacks could be drafted in the first round,” a national scout told Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. “To say five, I don’t see that. Are they all really worthy of that pick? No. But if you need one, you might not get another opportunity.”

One thing is for sure: If you want your quarterback to take you to a Super Bowl, the best chances have been with those drafted in the first round.

If you want a winning Super Bowl quarterback, then you really need to look at getting one in the first round.
