Brady Quinn?Who was the ND QB that Mel Kiper was so high on, moaning throughout day one of the draft that teams were missing out on the best player available as he fell down to the bottom of the 1st round, then turned out to be a total bust in the NFL? One has to be cautious of "expert" opinions.
The thing to realize is those teams have a lot of needs. We appear to potentially be a QB away and it is by far our greatest weakness. People here are suggesting we, as the most QB needy team pass on these guys.
So there is no guarantee at all that teams like Atlanta, Denver, Carolina, Washington with many holes across there roster will pass up on other needs to draft a QB.
But they may, so we need to get into position to grab our guy and if it means trading up higher than we may have had to, so be it, because it’s a glaring need and a hole that could set the franchise back many years by not being filled.
We don't know how Bill likes any of the qb's, Wilson and Lawrence included.yes, but unless you are completely in love with all 4 top qbs its far too risky to spend 3 firsts on a complete unknown. And we dont know how much bb likes the qbs after Lawrence and wilson. I personally would do 3 firsts for Lawrence, MAYBE 3 for Wilson, but neither are within realistic reach and after that it gets to be tricky.
from where we are picking and the market which has been set for moving into the top 5, it becomes a balance between filling your need without letting desperation cost you down the road. Mond or mills should be there in round 2 if there isnt an efficient trade up opportunity
Sounds like Fields could fall. A lot of bad rumors being spread about the guy's work ethic. Could be disinformation or it could be a legitimate concern. But it would raise red flags with the Patriots if true.
There's a ton of mis-information out there now. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in any of it at this point. Anything we read could be used to throw other teams off the scent.
That would be funny if he does go to San Fran at number 3, especially with all the reports saying Jones and Lance are their top two choices...going to make for an interesting night.We aren’t landing him. He’s going to San Fran at 3. If he adapts to the pro game, his god-given skills make him the perfect prototype to run Shanahan’s offense.
One thing to always remember. If these draft gurus were as good as some here think they are, they would be working for NFL franchises making huge amounts of money. Instead they are writing these draft publications not working in the NFL. Perhaps they aren't as good as we give them credit for.
