I heard this on the radio this morning and it kind of surprised me. 22 1st round QBs started in week 1 of the NFL. 2 second rounders did as well. That only leaves 8 teams that weren't in the top and Tom Brady and Russel Wilson are two of those.
How many of them won their game?

Cobra Kai season 2 finale was crazy! Season 3 wrapped up filming just before Covid so hopefully it comes out early 2021.

We just finished watching all three seasons of Glitch on Netflix and are a couple of shows into Away. Glitch had some interesting concepts that slowly unfolded as the series went on and what can go wrong with Hillary Swank leading a 3 year mission to Mars? Both series have been entertaining without being too hokey.

The only reason for the delay in releasing season 3 was Cobra Kai's move from YouTube Premium to Netflix.

My early guess is Miami goes receiver very early in the draft. It could just be my wish list but we need to replace Devante ... or at least have a replacement handy.

In the NFL, players who voluntarily take a year off and come back don't do very well. I know the college kids are younger, but it still makes you a bit skeptical.

Yep.  I was really disappointed to see Gregory Rousseau from The U opt out for this season.  As a freshman last year, he was First Team All ACC, Second Team All American, etc etc.  If he had played this year and not regressed, he was a Top 15 pick in the NFL (if he declared which everyone assumed he would).  He will probably still declare for the draft next year, but it will be very interesting to see if he still goes in the Top 15 or not.  He would have been a real game changer for the Canes this year.

With the college football schedule so screwed up this year, next year's NFL draft is going to be much more of a dart throw for all the NFL teams.  It is a dart throw to a certain extent every year, but with deciding how to evaluate players who didn't even play this year in college, it is going to be a pretty wild draft.

^^^ An OG going #10 overall? Unlikely, but possible, I suppose.

#4: OT Penei Sewell
#10: CB Patrick Surtain II

In general you should expect that a greater number of 1st rounders are going to be successful than later round picks (otherwise your scouting department is useless).

However, I think that maybe less of a factor than the fact 1st rounders are given more opportunities than later round picks.  A first round pick that is absolutely terrible his first year ill undoubtedly be given a second chance either on the same team or another team.  A late round pick will get one or two games to prove himself. 

Finally, there arenít a  ton of second and third round QBs.  QB that reallly arenít that outstanding are being drafted in the first round.   QBs either get drafted very early or very late.  Ones drafted early will automatically get an opportunity to start, those drafted late were drafted with the expectation o be a backup. 

Your stat doesnít prove much.  The majority of teams that won this week had a 1st round QB, but also true that the majority of teams that lost this week had a 1st round round QB as well. 

Given how few of the starting QBs were NOT first eprounders, they do represent a disproportionate number of SB appearances, Brady, Wilson, Jimmy G, Brees.
