At the same time, I like Bridgewater, Manziel, & Bortles..... I just don't think any of them are worth the #1 overall & I wouldn't allow pressure from Jacksonville & Cleveland to force me to select them over superior talent, if this draft has superior talent.

It's still early, I haven't looked at everybody in this draft yet, there may not be any more talented players. But right now, I see two maybe three LTs, I'm not seeing too many Sammy Watkins yet either. Of course, there's Jadaveon Clowney.
You really think those named are 1st round talent under any circumstances?

What if we traded with Cleveland. Manziel goes #1. Clowney #2 and Matthews #3 ... and we took Watkins? Far fetched but would be interesting ...

I actually brought up a similar scenario in another thread a few days ago.

We draft Watkins and then in the 3rd or 4th pick up Taj Boyd. We end up with a WR corps of AJ, Watkins, and Nuk where Boyd already has chemistry and experience with Watkins and Nuk.

Although with the free-fall that Taj Boyd has been in recently, he's looking like less and less of a possibility.

i'm of the mind that the quarterback, while THE key player, is still just a draft pick like any other (peyton, carr, vick, russell, stafford, luck, cam ... the full gambit of boom and bust) - until he proves otherwise. if i can get an OT and an OG in the first round that would give enough time for even texanbill to make throws, we can be successful. same setting on defense. i'd take the risk that one of those 2 quarterbacks is still available, and if he isnt - a starter at another position will be. probably 2 starters with the additional early pick.
Good post. My thoughts as well.
