I'd even be amused as hell if we ended up with Carr (though I acknowledge that is damn near impossible).

I think we stalk a QB in 2015.

Gotta go with Carr. He's easily the best qb on the board.

Better arm than the guys that went ahead of him and good mobility.

Maybe I am right and we are targetting Logan Thomas at 4:35.

You heard it here first.

Oh, we'll get Tajh Boyd too at 6:5

If they go with anyone except Carr I think keenum, Yates, and fitz all have a shot at real playing time.

Well, I'll eat my crow. I told Nitrofish that Fitzpatrick wouldn't be our starting quarterback.

Boy did I underestimate this franchise's stupidity.

They aren't touching Mettenberger.

They aren't touching Winston next year either

Team will have no offense this year... in a league built entirely for offense

Please, that's stupid. How many games we win in 2014 won't be decided by who we pick in this draft. It will come down to how many of the players we already have who we thought were players actually bounce back from 2014 under OB and perform well.

I've never been this down on a draft

I wanted a "franchise" capable QB. Whether it was JF, TB, Carr, or Bortles I wanted someone.

We are going to get the 4th best QB at best. At best. We couldn't have given up a few extra picks to move into pick 31 or 32? Unbelievable failure.

I can't believe people are ok with current status quo. Let's remember its Case Keenum and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Losing breeds losing. Sometimes I really hate this team

Epitomy of the loser mentality that has permeated this franchise since its inception.

No need to win now, let's just keep sucking forever and getting great prospects with our high draft picks. Just keep drafting BPA and eventually we'll be a winner, right?

You can't build through the draft if you ignore the most important player on the team. We won't win 8 games with Fitz and Case. I'm not willing to wait until 2015 when you think we'll "stalk a QB."

Sometimes you have to take a risk. A late 1st rounder on a potential franchise QB is not that big of a gamble. Instead we've essentially locked ourselves into trotting out a journeyman QB for an entire year. No potential upside in Fitz or Keenum. We've seen them. They're terrible

The only bad thing Derek Carr has going against him is his last name. If BOB thinks he's the guy then so be it. I'm not gonna judge the guy because his brother is David Carr.
