Admittedly I'm not a draft guy http://t.co/geScjqtmJJ But how will Janeane Garofalo help the Patriots?

Last season just about every key defensive player on New England got hurt, and so did half of their offense. But guess what, Brady didn't, and the Pats still got to the conference championship game.
The Broncos traded for Peyton Manning, and instantly became the class of the AFC.
Greatness at quarterback is a million times more valuable than any other position. Even if you drafted a star running back, wide receiver, safety and linebacker, it still wouldn't come close to what it could do for your team if you found the next Brady or Manning. Isn't the best way to ensure you get that guy to draft as many QB's as possible year after year?
Although there was that season that Brady got hurt and the Matt Cassel Patriots went 11-5. Hmm, maybe teams should use all their picks on finding the next Bill Belichick...
