I'd take Murray or McCarron as insurance, expensive in the 2nd or 3rd but look at them as high quality developmental insurance. If Case stays healthy and develops more and becomes a franchise level QB then you've got a good backup with Murray or McCarron, not many teams have good backups. If not then you've already got developmental quality depth already on your roster which is something not all teams can say. If 6all works out right then Murray or McCarron could also be a tradeable commodity in a year or 2. Lots of teams always looking for good QB's. You can never have to many good QB's or CB's.
