But for comparison sake, let's look at where the league stood 20 years ago, before full-fledged free agency began and when the draft still went 12 rounds (five more than today). In 1989, 19-of-28 teams (68 percent) featured starting quarterbacks they drafted, with names like Marino, Kelly, Kosar, Esiason, Grogan, Simms, Cunningham, Aikman and Montana heading that list. Heading into the '09 season, that figure is now down to 44 percent (14-of-32) and seems to be falling all the time.
