If you wanna draft Stafford #1, but make him sit the bench then that's fine. But I am generally against taking a player in the 1st that can't contribute immediately.
I will agree on Ben, but Rivers went to a 4-12 team that was consistently bad like the Lions have been these past few years.
I would never expect Stafford to start from day one. He would be the #3 QB like Ben and Philip, and depending on the circumstances he would move up the depth chart most and get the nod in 2010.
I am fine with Jason Smith as #1, but we should be able to agree that OL has just as much bust factor as QB this high in the draft.
