QB’s drafted in 1st round - by team

      Mike Florio of NBSSports/ SKYSports - ProFootballTalk put together a list of quarterbacks drafted in the first-round by each team during the Super Bowl era.

This includes the supplemental draft which skews the "drafted number one" label.

I found the list really interesting and wanted to share it with y'all (again, thank you Mike Florio).

The Super Bowl era began as part of a 1966 merger agreement between the NFL and the rival American Football League (AFL) to have their best teams compete for a championship. It was originally called the AFL–NFL World Championship Game until the “Super Bowl” was adopted in 1969’s Super Bowl III. 

Some of these surprised me.

The most first-round quarterbacks drafted was by the historically one of the worst teams in the AFC - the Brownies - with seven.  

The fewest is two — shared by the Cowboys, Panthers, Rams, Saints, Seahawks, and Texans.

The Packers have drafted 5 first-rounders.

Excluding the supplemental draft - The Cowboys haven't drafted a first-round QB since 1989 (Troy Aikman).

Here's the list:



For what it’s worth:

Most Super Bowl wins

Pittsburgh Steelers 6

New England Patriots 6

San Francisco

49ers 5

Dallas Cowboys 5
