Not a Peyton Manning or an Andrew Luck, a "developmental quarterback" is the type of player a team takes with a late-round pick. He is usually above-average in a few skills, but needs work in other aspects of his game to stick in the NFL. When a team drafts a developmental QB, the intention is to groom him into a quality backup or, in a best-case scenario, a capable starter.
Examples: T.J. Yates, Houston Texans (152nd overall pick, 2011 NFL Draft); Zac Dysert, Miami (Ohio) University (2013 prospect, pictured above)
