Another 2007 QB draft pick cast aside
The 2007 draft of quarterbacks has to be one of the worst ever QB class in the league. With the failures of JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn (lucky to be on a team), John Beck (where is he now?), add Trent Edwards to the list. On Monday, Bills released Edwards the day after Ryan Fitzpatrick took his starting spot and kept up with New England Patriots in a 38-30 loss. A big fall for Edwards after showing promise in his rookie season which he started nine games. The next two seasons he regressed with him missing half the season in his third year due to injury. Despite winning the starting job in training camp, he played poorly in the first two games causing the team to make moves last week and to finally cut him after the third game of the season. While Jaguars snapped him up he will likely be backup QB. This leaves Kevin Kolb as the last hope to be regular QB starter from that year draft, but its been put in the backburner when Michael Vick took over his spot when he was KO'd in the first game of the season. None of the QBs drafted in that year have done anything special from Drew Stanton (6 games), Jeff Rowe (0 games, 0 passes), Troy Smith (14 games, mostly used for Wildcat plays), Jordan Palmer (3 games), and Tyler Thigpen (started 11 games in 2008; now a backup in Miami). With Edwards cut it puts the exclamation mark on the 2007 QB draft class as the most disappointing, horrendous, and quickest flame out from a position ever.
