Yep, I agree and I have been thinking about this more and more lately.
Any of this year's QB's likely to be taken with the number 10 pick seem to have too much boom/bust potential for me.
Of course, your average fan will not want to suck next year and also be without a young/franchise qb that they can pin their hopes on...
But I'm now leaning towards the thinking of just building your lines/taking best player available in this draft and probably just sucking next year and getting a nice pick.
Also, maybe take a flier on a QB in the late rounds, I think there is some interesting depth at the QB position. If you can get a nice experienced college QB late than I say go for it. I particularly like Dalton and McElroy as late round fliers.
That way when you are out of the playoff race around week 10-12 or whatever you can just throw them in for Grossman and see if you struck gold or not. Now, the most likely answer is that you won't and that's fine because you can just get a better draft pick for one of the guys you mentioned here.
If your late round flier QB turns out to be decent you can still draft a better QB with your top pick and trade him for something, or keep him for the time being and deal with it later.
