Default Re: Which QB do you take at 1-1, 2-1, or later (if at all)

Bridgewater high
Murray in the middle
Savage low

I'm not going to do every round but I think this should cover it. I'm drafting Savage based on mostly nameability.

Well .... when you consider that several of the teams picking in the top 10 have a real need at QB , I believe that we will see multiple QB's taken by those teams Hou , Jax , Clev, Minny in the top 10 & Tenn just outside that all have significant need at the position.
There are a couple other teams with high first round choices that are in a QB dilemma like Stl & Barfalo. Teams with marginal QB play like Cincy could take a gamble on a QB in the 2nd-3rd round too putting pressure on teams to pick one earlier than they may like.

Have we ever seen that many teams with such a need at the position in one draft ?!

Not all of those teams will take a QB in the first round , not all of them will pick in their slotted position in the first round either .... I cant see less than three QB's being selected in round one and as many as 4 could be taken.

There is always a need for QB talent, especially among the teams picking in the top ten.

I just think the QB talent at the top of this draft is being overrated, as it usually is. The strength is the strong crop in the middle rounds. And with the record influx of underclassmen talent I expect some teams to wait on QB and take superior players.

conversely teams picking near the bottom of the draft usually have their guy & can afford to develop QB talent, if not utilized can be flipped into higher picks down the road.

True. But at the back of round one in this draft class, are you going to take a QB to develop or take a starter at WR, DL, LB, or DB?

If I'm one of the teams at the back of the draft, I'm only looking at QB this early if I'm getting great value. If Bortles or Bridgewater were there I would think about it. Manziel or Carr, no. Because I'd be passing on better players to take a QB that I don't need.

Default Re: Which QB do you take at 1-1, 2-1, or later (if at all)

Currently I am thinking like this on QBs:

1a. Bridgewater
1b. Bortles

I can't split these too, keep on going back and forth on them. TB is ahead at the moment basically because he was my first horse in the race and I hate switching horses mid race. These guys I'd take 1:1

2. Mettenberger
3. Manziel

These guys I would take late 1st round if we traded back or traded back up to the 1st.

4. Aaron Murray
5. Jimmy Garappolo
6. AJ McCarron

Give me these guys at 4:1 and I'd be happy.

7. Logan Thomas
8. Brett Smith
9. Tajh Boyd

If we get one of these guys in the 6th or 7th that is draft stock well spent in my opinion.

Thought I would come back to this thread with how I feel so far.

For slots with multiple guys, I'd take the first guy over the next guy and after anyone in an earlier slot.

1:1
Bridgewater

Trade down in 1st
Manziel
Bortles

2:1
Mettenberger
Carr

3:1
Murray
Garappolo

5:1
Savage
Thomas
McCarron

6:1
Boyd

UDFA
Vaughan
