Brief history: Drafting QBs isn't easy

Predicting a quarterback's NFL success is never easy. A total of 28 quarterbacks have been drafted in the first two rounds of the NFL draft since 2004. Here's a look at who they are and how they've done.

Some interesting data below, as well, that is not included in the photo gallery (unless you do the math yourself):
