But your point holds in that you don't have to trade 55 first round picks and draft The Guy at #2 overall.
Yep. I'm not naive enough to say that all the "mobile" QB's got fair shots, but it's also not like Steve McNair was a 5th round pick. It's more common now, but I don't think there was ever a time that teams shunned good passers because they could run.
(Enter Warren Moon to set me straight... even though he couldn't really run.)
No doubt, but McNair, Culpepper, and McNabb all would have been better in a read option based system and were forced to play in pure pocket based systems that didn't maximize their skill sets.
