In the 2002 draft the Texans took David Carr No. 1 and the Lions took Joey Harrington No. 3 (quick quiz: who was taken second overall?). Sunday they'll face each other for the first time. What's interesting is that they both have similar NFL numbers but Carr is considered the better quarterback. I wonder if this has more to do with expectations being greater in Detroit than Houston, or are the stats misleading and Carr is actually better than Harrington? Let me put it this way, if you're Matt Millen (yikes), who would you rather have?
Given the historical success of undrafted quarterbacks in the NFL, Tony Romo might as well be a national treasure. We look at the impact of developmental leagues on undrafted quarterbacks, and just how many players have tried to break through in a recent season.
