Picking a quarterback: Risky business

  • Updated: April 23, 2011 - 8:17 PM
The Vikings have used their first-round draft pick on a quarterback only twice -- Tommy Kramer in 1977 and Daunte Culpepper in 1999. A number of teams have selected quarterbacks in the first round since 1999, eager to anoint their man as the "franchise quarterback." The disappointments are many. Among them:

Pick (Year) Player, Team

1 (1999) Tim Couch, Cleveland

3 (1999) Akili Smith, Cincinnati

1 (2002) David Carr, Houston

3 (2002) Joey Harrington, Detroit

1 (2005) Alex Smith, San Fran.

10 (2006) Matt Leinart, Arizona

3 (2006) Vince Young, Tennessee

1 (2007) JaMarcus Russell, Oakland
