Would it be a completely terrible, unrecoverable, mistake if they chose not to draft a QB this year and wait until 21?
This year they could concentrate on:
Build an O-line that could keep the new QB alive and help the running game. Give them a year to come together as a unit.
Build a defense that teams worry about and can stay healthy.
I'm far, far away from an expert in any of this but isn't next years QB class considered to better than this year?
Now this is purely a wish upon a star but, if they wait, maybe by some miracle or help from a miracle worker Rosen becomes the answer and saves the draft pick for something else.
I question is #1 or #2 rated QB (Burrow and healthy Tua?)that much better than the #3 - #7 QB on your board (Herbert, Love Fromm, Eason, Hurts). If they are then if you want them then go get them, if you think they will be gone. If not let the rest of the league waste draft picks and stay put.
I believe that the second wave of QB's will have success and staying put at #5 is a good plan. We can get a good QB later in the first or even the second round (although I do agree with the trade scenario posted on another thread).
There are many ways to skin this cat, glad Flores is in the room making the choices.
I just hope we don't give away picks to move up. They want Tua (or Herbert) ok get him at #5 don't give away the house to get him. Especially Tua who will probably sit out the entire year. Did we collect 5 top 100 picks to give them away?
> We should take one in both drafts.
Thats exactly the kind of mentality that will kill this draft.If your not SURE of a QB then dont pick him. Of course its a throw of the dice on every prospect , but two QB's in a row is just silly because you need a few seasons to make sure they are the guy. You cant waste first round picks on guesses.
Grab him this season if you must. Be sure. or dont. Next year we have another two. Spend them both if you must to get your guy , but drafting two automatically gives you a 50% success and 50% failure rate automatically.
And this team cant afford it. Its a sinking ship and we have leaky holes everywhere.
No. What got us here in the first place was not picking a bonafide franchise QB, regardless of what round we pick him in. It's true that the chances of picking one in the 1st round is twice as high as either the 2nd or the 3rd rounds (they are about the same at around 20%), but it is still a long way from certain, at only 41.3%. This fact means to me that we should be picking a QB every year, in whatever round.
Just for clarification, I never said draft a guy at the top of the draft two years in a row. I said we should draft a QB every year. We should, somewhere. ‘IF’ that happens to be high picks then good, if not then also good.
No, what got us into this mess was drafting Tannehill and not playing him in either a read option or wild cat offensive set as the Titans did.
The difference between a nail and a hard headed person is if you hit the nail hard enough it will go through the wood but no matter how hard or how often you hit a hard head with the message, he will never get it.
