After thinking long and hard (ha) about the draft process, the state of the team, the way things have been going, how the media has been reporting things, and all that jazz, i have come to a few conclusions about what is going to happen on Thursday:

-Hurney is going to try like hell to trade out of the first pick to get a second rounder back.

-We do not want Newton as much as we want people to think we want him. Crucify me if you want for saying this, but all the cam hype from the media and what not is all a smokescreen to try and trade up for him. I have a gut feeling that Hurney isn't about to put his job on the line for the development of one of the most controversially prospects in the past decade.

-In the event we can trade with the bills so they take cam, we will take dareus if still available, Green, or Peterson.

-The team wants to start winning NOW and not wait a few years down the line for it to happen. They will NOT take a QB. I have just come to terms with this and am OK with that. Because no matter how much I WANT to like Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert, I don't. I feel like they will both suck in the NFL. Gut feeling.

If we stay at #1 we are probably going to take Dareus. He is the safest pick, we need help on the D-Line, he is hard working, smart, and would help us instantly. Our schedule next year is going to be brutal, we need all the help we can get. When our QB's suck again next year and we are again picking in the top 5, we will take a much better QB prospect than the ones this draft has to offer.

Now do I necessarily want this stuff to happen? no not really. I wish there was a QB we knew would be great, not one that COULD be great if the planets aligned the right way.

Call me crazy, but i think we go a different route than Cam Newton come this Thursday.

Of the QB's Gabbert would be the only one I would risk drafting in the first round. I agree with you that we either trade or pick Dareus or in my opinion PP.
