Comparing QBs picked in similar spots in NFL Draft

Finding their place

For all the chatter about quarterbacks going into the draft, only one signal-caller went among the first 21 picks (BlakeBortles, third overall to the Jaguars). Three other highly regarded QBs – Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, and Derek Carr – went lower than expected but still within the top 40. They will be not only compared with each other throughout their careers, but also with QBs who were selected in similar spots since the 1970 merger. (COMPILED BY SEAN SMITH)
