If the original question was how much does BB actually value the QB position, then i'm not sure we're any further forward after FA and the draft.I wonder about this. After all, given the article about the Patriots saying "We're good" to everyone, it would have been interesting to see them both there at 15. The Patriots were like, we're not trading up when we don't rate the players highly enough. The other variable is what would happen if Fields were the last of the 5 on the board? I tend to think they would have taken Fields as well at 15. They just didn't rank these two highly enough to trade for them.
I get the impression that had the Saints as rumoured or WFT traded to 14 instead of the Jets, or Chicago taken Jones and Vikings then sticking and taking Fields, Bill would have shrugged, grabbed a defensive player (maybe Collins) and carried on. We may or may not have a Davis Mills-type project pick instead.
Whether you prefer Jones or Fields, there's a huge gap between those guys and Mills, so I for one am just relieved the board fell the way it did.
