It was believed that the New Orleans Saints would draft a quarterback. As Drew Brees gets closer to retirement, the team was going to target a quarterback; however, it was not sure when they would pick one.
We got the answer in the third round. It took more than 70 picks since a quarterback went since the top 2 picks.
Manning went in the second round to the Saints. The team is hoping that he can he just as good as Manning, or his sons Peyton or Eli when he does take over for Brees.
While Grayson becomes the first quarterback picked in the first three rounds since 1971, both the Arizona Cardinals and the Buffalo Bills picked 10each in the first three rounds in that same time span.
