Drafting a QB

I came across a thread on Reddit about drafting QBs and how where they are drafted/scouted to be drafted relates to playoff wins and Super Bowl wins. Here is the link.

I can't take any credit for the study, but I thought it would be interesting to share since we most certainly are looking at drafting a QB this year. Basically what the study states is that the average pick for Super Bowl winning QBs are around 5(actually drops to about 2 when Tom Brady is taken out of the equation). Also, QBs taken, or scouted to be taken, in the top 10 are more likely to lead to multiple deep playoff runs and any QB pick taken beyond the mid to late 2nd round is essentially a wasted draft pick.

I hear a lot of chatter that we might want to go defensive or wait to the 2nd or 3rd round to address the QB situation and develop someone. I think that's the wrong and if their is a top ten level QB available at number 8, we need to draft him, any later selection would be a wasted pick.
