Their value every year is inflated. If you wait until the QB is the best player on the board in the draft, you're probably never drafting a QB...ever.

It's ridiculous this year though, and frankly it's not all to do with the quality of the QB's. down to the teams needing a QB even good teams. You've got the QB class of 2004 on coming into the home straight, Brady starting to make real noises about calling it quits, Brees on his final two years most probably.
I mean you can make the case for all the following teams needing a QB at some point in the draft.
I wouldn't be surprised if 6 QB's (Darnold, Rosen, Allen, Mayfield, Jackson and Rudolph) go in the first round if Rudolph sneaks in there. The other factor which is pushing the QB's up is that after the first 12 or so players it's a reasonably flat draft talent wise between the middle of the 1st round to the middle of the 3rd. According to MMQB, one NFL exec talking about a Giants trade with the Bills said "The problem is that the 22nd pick might as well be in the third round." It's a deep draft with good, if not a lot of exceptional prospects.
|No narrative here, I'm done debating these things really. I was more focused on that comment, I think a lot of Giants fans are only noticing this now because the team is in the mix for the first time since 2004. These guys are no more overhyped than any of the other top QBs in previous drafts.|
|I disagree with him.|
