Someone asked Gantt about this via twitter and Gantt's response was:

Matt is wise. You should listen to him. But it is February.

He has 4 QBs going in the first...I'd imagine this will change

I like Maiocco, but I think he's nuts on that one.

I'd be okay with this. I'd be okay with Newton, Fairley, or Green with our first pick

I wonder if Cam's better than Jimmy right now? I'd say yes but I doubt we'll take him #1.

I'm actually taking a WGAF approach. I almost want us to pull a Raiders like move being that we'll probably be stuck with the # 1 pick and take a guy that's projected to go in the 6th round.

I'm thinking, if every team passed on Tom Brady 5+ times, what if we took a Tom Brady with the #1 pick? Sure, we'll look like asses on draft day, but if it pans out, we're geniuses. If it doesn't then everyone knew the guy would suck and wasn't supposed to be taken until the 6th round... Would be awesome.

I think Cam will be fine... But, I'm just saying in general, if we take a guy that no one predicts at #1, at least we won't have to deal with the expectations and the 'is he legit or a bust?'

It's a new draft strategy I've come up with for the team picking first. Pick someone that all teams agree sucks, get rid of the expectations, and if he is good then you're pleasantly surprised.
