I wouldn't mind taking a QB for those same reasons (fallback option, Anderson won't be here forever, etc), but Id wait and take a QB in te sixth-seventh round. No way id take one at 28.

Besides, espn would have a field day with that if we took him thinking that Gettleman is giving up on cam, etc.

Bridgewater, Kelvin Benjamin...all the smokescreens are in full effect at this time so teams can get a guy to hopefully slide to them.

I would not be suprised to see us trade out of our day one pick bc so many teams would be getting back in for a QB like Gorrapalo or if Carr slides bc the day 2 top 5 teams might still be looking for a QB. Id rather have two seconds that pick so late in the first. Especially if Marquise Lee, Brandon Cooks, Benjamin are gone by our pick.

I get the logic, but we know from his own words that Gettleman isn't a big fan of trading back.

Cam is still a panther until 2017 at least if we want him to. No way we take bridgewater at 28 and cam is worlds better then bridgewater. He isn't even the best qb in his class

I think since the NFL's shift to a passing league, we're going to see a lot more Lockers and Ponders than Rodgers going forward. I.e. teams reaching for a guy who should be a late 1st rounder in the top 15 rather than letting a potential franchise QB slide. Teams have always been desperate for franchise QBs, but guys like Cam and Luck (and to a lesser extent, RGIII lol) have shown that a talented enough QB can come in to a bad team and produce right away.

 

tl;dr Bridgewater wont be there when we pick

 

As for us getting a rookie QB for when Anderson eventually leaves, I like Logan Thomas either in the 7th or as an UDFA...he won't have the same plug-and-play ability that makes Anderson valuable, but then again pretty much no rookie QB available after the 1st round would...

I have wondered what if one of the qbs fell. Not that we take him but would we trade back. Or if qbs go early and someone wants to jump up and take Grappolo. I hope Gettleman will listen if its only a few spots and we could get another third.

Listened to the Football Today podcast today. They talked for a while about Bridgewater falling like a Rodgers situation to Arizona.

Would be great for both sides.

If he slid that much do you think Denver would pick him up?
