Given that Thrown Weapons talent lets you whip out a mace or spear and throw it
a single action, this talent seems more than reasonable.  But given that AM
you to pick up a weapon off the floor during movement with a dex roll,
of your action, I have wonder if Quickdraw should even be a talent, maybe just a 
change to the rules.  (Either that, or the "free quickdraw during movement" rule 
should be looked at.)  One way or another, though, like it should be easier to 
draw a sword from a scabbard than from the floor.

OTOH, if you fail your "quickdraw from floor" roll you end up with nothing, not
a weapon that's ready next round, so maybe that makes up for it.
