I say draft one. It's cheaper and there's more potential.

My theory is to have a qb on the PS and a veteran as the #2. That way, if you have an injury and the #2 gets promoted, the new #2 knows the offense. A developmental guy with a high upside who is a bit raw is fine.

This year, I do not think drafting a QB is a great idea. In years past, probably a good idea. Hurney bragged about not missing with first rounders, but he was bad everywhere else and never was good at drafting QB, CB, DT, or WR. I cannot believe this team as as good as it was.

Cheaper? Sure.

More potential? Not a chance.

How many "low round" QBs are successes in the NFL again? Tom Brady was a phenomenon PRECISELY because good QBs rarely come out of the lower rounds. There's a reason for that.

That'd put us pretty young at QB.

Don't really wanna go that route.

How about taking a backup in the first round? Way it is looking Geno could slide to us at 14. 2 reason why this would be a good option. 1 would give us a backup that could play if something happens to Cam. 2nd If he does show potential we could trade him to a team that does need a starter for some first round picks.

I'd love to have Moore back. Hater will always hate but the guy can play. Should have never given the reigns to Clausen in 2010.

Gettleman would have to be on acid to draft a QB at #14.

Backup QB is not as important as probably 4-5 other starting position needs.

And you don't draft in the first round hoping to trade for a first round pick later.

We will go into the draft with all the need positions filled. Gettleman can not risk not having that covered before the draft. So we will basically be drafting BPA. We also could use a capable backup QB.

BPA for sure but excluding RB and QB.

I guess if some superstar fell to us but there isn't even a first round RB this year and while Geno is good some people have him going in the 2nd round.

Being old, washed up, set in your ways and overall average is not always a good thing either. If we could get a young guy with some obvious upside, then I'd be OK with it. That being said, I am thinking that we go with a cheap vet.

Never draft a backup it is a wasted pick. Backups come from vets past their time or undrafted FA's. you only draft starters or starters in waiting
