I'm not saying Smith is a top 10 talent but in today's NFL you must get your QB in round 1 where he is tied down to a 5 year contract, if you wait till round 2, you only have him for 4 years before his contract must be renewed and if he is successful, his salary will completely restructure your teams ability to sign its FA's. Ask Baltimore how a QB's salary effects salary structure.
The position is worth a lot more than any other. Starting quarterbacks earn nearly double the salary of the next highest position. If you get a starter out of college, which a lot of teams have done lately, you're getting him for four years at a tiny fraction of his market value. Rookie salaries don't take field position into account. They are based strictly on draft position. A wide receiver taken in the top five starts out earning more than the average starting wide receiver around the league. A quarterback taken top five only earns a third the average of starting quarterbacks.
