FWIW, its not clear to me that the ability to pick a second QB really helps teams that weren't able to land one in the first round. You can hedge your bets with two QBs, but the talent pool will be that much more drained by other teams picking guys to back up their older QBs. There's value in knowing that other teams are out of the QB market entirely.
I'm not really understanding how anyone can bitch about a team picking more than 1 QB. Limiting my team to 1 QB means that I'm forced into picking a below average player early on because nobody wants to get stuck with Mark Sanchez as their only alternative. By only allowing one QB per team, you're giving the teams that already had the advantage (got to pick early and got to pick a solid QB) even more of an advantage because the teams drafting at the bottom all have to scrounge for below level talent early on at a premium position, allowing better players to fall back to the people who draft at the top of the round. That's bullshit. If I want to spend my pick on a few gambles at QB, I should be allowed to.
