Yep. 2006 was Mario Williams and 2008 was Jake Long. The rest:

03 - Carson Palmer
04 - Eli Manning
05 - Alex Smith
07 - Jamarcus Russell
09 - Matt Stafford
10 - Sam Bradford
11 - Cam Newton
12 - Andrew Luck

Despite a bust and the jury still being out on some, a decent group. There's a reason QBs are usually selected first overall.
