And let's take the gloves off with the 2017 8th overall pick.
In the year we drafted him our QB led our team in rushing. His best year was 2019 and we won 1 divisional game and tumbled into the cellar of the entire league.
So the obvious answer to all this is to double down and make him the highest paid RB after spending a top 10 pick?
This is not how you build a winning team in the modern NFL.
This is overly simplistic and doesn’t hold up under scrutiny.
1. He’s a QB, not a RB. Just like an injury to a throwing shoulder will be much more serious to a QB than a RB.
2. Even with the same injury, there’s other factors to consider. Nerve damage, etc.
3. He will be evaluated by doctors. I’m pretty sure everybody is on board with not touching him with a ten foot pole if we don’t like what we hear from doctors. So your proposing that this freak injury that will likely never happen again should take him off our draft boards even if the doctors say there is no nerve damage, he will make a full recovery, not have limitations, etc. If the recovery prognosis is the same as Bo Jackson’s, literally nobody will want him.
