Default Don't Waste #1 pick on Defensive low Impact Player

Our biggest need is at Quarterback Position! A player that will have the greatest impact on the success or failure of the team. This is what the fans want and expect to get. Why in the world would you use the top pick in the draft on a defensive player that may make only 2 or 3 outstanding plays a game. NO that's not what we need. We need a quarterback that can spark this offense back to life and make things happen in short order.

I agree, we shouldn't spend a pick on a linebacker who will be in coverage on TEs, we should grab Clowney instead.

Actually, one of our greatest needs the last couple of years was more linebackers that can actually cover TEs.

Think Patriots...

But is the QB we need in this draft class? If you don't see a guy that you love and think will be your franchise player for the next 10 years, do you just roll the dice and hope a guy works out?

Or do you take a guy like Clowney or Mack who you think has the potential to be an All Pro every year?

Default Re: Don't Waste #1 pick on Defensive low Impact Player

To me, the biggest reason for not taking Manziel would be taking one of these other non-QBs and getting Bridgewater later. We might not even have to trade back up into the first, because it's sounding like he might be available @ 2-1.

Default Re: Don't Waste #1 pick on Defensive low Impact Player

because blaine gabbart was selected before jj watt. because 16 probowlers were taken in the first round after bradford. because jamarcus russell.

it's a few days before the draft so predictably the manziel fans are going to start showing up, but taking a quarterback just because he's a quarterback is often franchise crippling.

I think we should draft all the right players, coach them up well, get all the schemes right and make all the right game time decisions. Super bowl, baby!

Default Re: Don't Waste #1 pick on Defensive low Impact Player

I'd rather take my chances on having the foundation for the best defensive line for the next decade plus than rolling the dice on questionable QB prospects (regardless of how much I like Johnny Football).

A lot has to come down to where you expect the team to be picking next year. If you expect it's probably going to be closer to the top (which is what I expect as of right now), then I know a year from now I can hopefully take my QB of the future. If one of the top 3 or 4 QBs is the difference between making the playoffs and not, then maybe I go that route. I'm just not particularly sold on the fact that this is a playoff team with the holes currently on the roster - with or without a QB.

Long term, I feel like the better move is solidifying the defensive line as a terror for years to come and approaching next year's draft as the draft to get the franchise QB. Just my two cents.

I think you roll the dice and give the fans what they want. The local guy from Texas A&M.....Heisman Trophy Winner Johnny Manziel and see how it works out.
