    the following is which teams need a qb and which rd they will take one
    cardinals-1st rd or 2nd
    bears-3rd
    bengals-3rd rd maybe 2nd
    browns-1st rd lock
    cowboys-3rd rd
    packers-3rd rd maybe maybe later
    jags-1st rd lock
    chiefs-3rd
    vikings-1st rd lock
    giants-maybe 2nd maybe 3rd
    pittsburg-2nd rd or 3rd
    chargers-3rd rd
    rams-3rd rd

    my sources tell me no other team is in the market for a qb before the 3rd

    I would argue that Jacksonville would be high on Blake Bortles (as would we) so I dunno if the Jags would be willing to deal to get him (local product) with a rival team. Browns definitely need a quarterback unless if they try and get Kirk Cousins so that is something worth watching.

    If anything its a good thing the Texans have the 1st overall pick because it puts us in a powerful position to deal and pick up more picks to further bolster our team.

    I don't get this. Bortles and Bridgewater are both from Florida and neither is from Jax but people only mention Bortles and call him local.

    Why is the "local" kid always a good fit for every team but Houston?

    Because skipping on VY was a good idea in hindsight, and I feel skipping on Manziel (who is really a Dallas boy, but whatever) will be a good one too. Can you think of any hometown guys we were in position to take that we should have?

    No... but I also don't think the Jags would be willing to deal to get Bortles just because he's a "local product"

    Agreed. I don't get the "local" product idea. That seems like a HS to College mentality that doesn't apply to a professional league.

    Your sources?

    As the Cardinals GM in the TTMD I'm not looking QB unless someone really unexpected is available. They seem pretty content with Palmer.

    I have a hard time believing that is the case. I think they have room to wait a year but will definitely take one high (1st 3 rounds) either this year or next. Smart would be this year and let him sit one year. They just had Palmer on a cheap $4 mil cap hit season. Next year it is $11 mil ($7 mil dead if cut). 2015 it is $12 mil (just $2 mil dead if cut).

    That's the financial side. The football side is a totally mediocre 83 rating 34 year old QB who has been that same level QB for 5 years now. I can't imagine anyone content with that and they are not financially handcuffed to him.

    If the Texans aren't a lock then why would anyone else be in the top 5 ?

    The Cards may think like that, I think their fans think if they add some pieces, Palmer can do enough for them to compete with the two big dogs in their division.

    Hmmm...didn't know Bridgewater was from Florida. I guess Bortles is "local" because he plays for UCF versus Louisville, KY.

    IDK to be honest.
