Quarterback WAR:

Not realistically. But I do agree with your assessment about this front office and will not argue about whatever decision they make. I see good things in this group.

It’s not realistic when you look at it in terms of a unified/consensus draft board across all teams. When looking at it from a team specific level it becomes a little clearer. If the talent level is equal then you select based on need. At 4 there’s better BPA than QB at that point. I’m actually excited about this years draft because of all the possibilities.

Much agreement!

I applaud PFF for trying to quantify player performance but it is so hard in football. It is such a team dependent game. QB’s are extremely important to the success of a team but more evidence points to them being dependent on their teammates and coaching staff. So many players struggled for one team only to have a renaissance with another. It is hard for QB’s to overcome bad coaching and a bad supporting cast.
 

Metrics like this work in baseball because of how independent each players performance is compared to the rest of the team. I don’t see how you can compare QB’s because of all the factors that impact their performance.

You guys have convinced me not to take a QB at 4. I’ll take Penei Sewell at 4 and QBs in rounds 2 through 7.  There’s bound to be a good one in there somewhere. Let the competition begin! 
 

Matt Ryan should be teaching a rookie QB in my opinion. With only four wins this season, let’s find something he can do well. Maybe FS? He is bigger than Rico was and almost as fast.
