NFL TEAM QUARTERBACK ROSTERS

All workplaces have a leader. Movie sets have directors, construction sites have foremen…and football fields have quarterbacks. "The quarterback is always the straw that stirs the drink," says new Minnesota Vikings head coach BRAD CHILDRESS. "He's the guy that has to pull everyone together."

NFL Draft history underscores the quarterback's importance. When the Tennessee Titans selected quarterback VINCE YOUNG of Texas with the No. 3 overall choice in the 2006 draft, it marked the eighth time in the past nine years that at least one quarterback was chosen among the first three picks. As 14 clubs conduct rookie minicamps this weekend after 16 did so last weekend, following is a listing of each team's quarterbacks (* 2006 NFL Draft choice; ** Presently playing in NFL Europe League; ^ Has NFL Europe League experience): 2006 NFL QUARTERBACKS QUARTERBACK COLLEGE 2006 NFL EXP.
