The quarterback outweighs any other positions. If Fields turns out to be a star, it will hurt us for many years until we find a franchise QB. I would trade Derrick Brown, Jaycee Horn and Terrace Marshall right now for Justin Herbert. All 32 general managers would too.
All we ended up with in 2011 was Cam Newton. He changed this franchise for almost a decade. You would still take Cam with the first pick again in a redo draft.
