What if the Rams really, REALLY suck all the way through and end up with #1 overall? They'd be dumb to not take Luck, even if they have Bradford. Kinda like SD a few years back. What if we tried to trade Schaub, get a pick or two for him, then flip those picks and add whatever else needed for Bradford?
Would a guy like Bradford be better in Houston? He obviously showed flashes of brilliance in STL last year but this year their team has been even more decimated by injury than we are.
Just random babble, with not much thought. What do you think?
I've thought about whether or not trading for either Bradford or the Rams pick as well. Bradford or Luck would both be better than Schaub in a few years, but I also feel like this team is built to win now.
However, having said that, I really don't see how using our first pick on a QB instantly puts us in a rebuilding stage as some have said. Out of our 11 first round picks in franchise history, 6 are currently on our team. One of which is Kareem Jackson, who nearly everyone sees as worthless, and another is Mario Williams, who's future with the team is uncertain. I'm not advocating wasting first rounders like we have, simply stating that we can survive without getting immediate use out of our first round pick.
Soo...to sum it all up. Yes, I would look at Bradford/Luck/RG3/any other promising QB in this upcoming draft.
