? Not sure what you are trying to say here.
I think the fact that we don't have a 2nd likely increases the chance that we won't draft a QB #1. If we do and they fail then that will set us back and will not be good for Rivera's tenure. He needs to get the most sure fire prospect he can and Dareus is one of those guys. Plus we are ridiculously weak at DT, at least there is some hope of talent at the current QB situation. It will also be easier to land a veteran QB in FA than it would a good DT in FA.
I'm saying Rivera will not start his debut coaching season w/ Jimmy Clausen as the QB.....too big of a risk. I'm not saying w/ draft Cam....but the logic Rivera is going to roll w/ Clausen lacks little logic.
basically, it is staying Rivera is gonna start a rookie QB (which is what Clausen's level of play will be)who will be totally unfamilair w/ his offense and who likely could miss chunks of camp to be learning it.
We can get some talent in FA to improve at DT. D overall is strong. Clausen level QB play causes an offense to implode and a D to suck. It is a very real possible Clausen will be worse next season if he plays.
The only issue I had was the "source" claiming he was sticking w/ Clausen. I think Rivera could easily draft a DT....but he still has to find a QB.
