Position Outlook: Quarter back

This is the latest installment of my series called Position Outlook, where I will be profiling each position and the players that Dallas has for that position. I will be giving MY opinion on the relative strength of the position, and how likely I think Dallas will be drafting that position in the 2013 NFL Draft. I will include All current players in this evaluation.

Just as a refresher here is my rankings system(last revised Mar 2012):

1. Quality Starter- A player that more than likely would not be "beaten out" for a position. Examples of this would be Tony Romo, Jason Witten and Demarcus Ware. They tend to be the Cornerstones of the Franchise, and only injuries keep them out.

2. Serviceable Starter- A player that starts,but they tend to be limited in some way, and can be upgraded from. An example of this would be Anthony Spencer.

3. Quality depth player- A player that has the ability to become a Quality starter, but may lack the playing time, due to injury, or is behind a Quality Starter.

4. Depth Player- A player that lacks something that prevents him from becoming a Starter at this time. They are usually limited in some fashion, but can become a Quality Depth player.

So with Those out of the Way here is the "revised" Ranking system:

5 Stars- Quality Starter(s) at Position, quality depth player for Position= BPA only if player is ranked significantly higher than any other player, and would not be a factor in FA

4 Stars- Quality Starter(s) at position, only depth player in backup = Address as BPA and FA for Depth

3 Stars- Serviceable Starter(s), Quality depth players =slight need, BPA in rounds 4-7 preferably, look to fill need in FA

2 Stars-Serviceable Starter(s), Depth players in backup role = solid need, BPA if within rounds 1-3 if not taken care of in Free Agency

1 Star- No Serviceable Starter(s), only depth players in Backup= major need, Draft no later than 2nd round, would take precedence over BPA if Gap is close enough, and is a must target in Free Agency

So with that in mind lets look at the Position Outlook: Quarterback:

AS as been pointed out numerous times Romo "regressed" in certain stats while setting/matching Career highs in others. Overall I would say that Romo,While older, is still Capable of leading this team to the Superbowl. He will be the Starting QB for the forseeable future, and I don't have a problem with that. Definitely Quality Starter

Next up is Kyle Orton: (via DallasCowboys.com)

Obviously Dallas wants Orton on the Sideline but if necessary I feel comfortable if Dallas needs him for a game or two... Quality Depth player

With out a Third QB on the Roster This one is Done.. Obviously I am Giving the QB position:

5 Stars- Quality Starter(s) at Position, quality depth player for Position= BPA only if player is ranked significantly higher than any other player, and would not be a factor in FA

Any Reason I am Wrong? Let me know, but please let's not turn is into a Romo(insert either great/suck here) debate. If you have a valid concern or I have missed something please bring it up. Otherwise Let's have some fun...
