You don’t draft Blake Bortles at 1.1 just because you need a QB, especially if you can draft Von Miller. Even if you end up with Jadevion Clowney, it’s better than Bortles. Nobody in this class really fits the bill of a guy you’d pick at 1.1, all have flaws that should drop them outside of the top 3: Young has size issues, Levis is very raw with his technique (reminds me of Bortles) Stroud doesn’t have any sort of special attributes you’d require at 1.1, Hooker is going to be 26 next season and everyone else hasn’t done a thing to warrant top 25 discussions, let alone 1.1 talk. Levis will absolutely warrant discussion in that spot after the season, simply because he’s going to look fantastic at the combine and pro days/private workouts. Hooker is probably the best of the group, Young is probably the most explosive of the group in terms of arm talent and Stroud is very low on upside but high on immediate readiness - he’ll never be a top 10 QB but will never be lower than a top 15 QB. This is a year where the best opportunity for a QB sits in the 8-15 range - which works out well for us, given we’ll have a pick in that range to use for a QB, courtesy of Cleveland. Picking BPA at the higher of the two picks and then selecting a QB with that Cleveland pick (even if it means using additional assets in later rounds or next year) is the best scenario - you get your next QB along with an instant playmaker to go with it. That’s what I would like to see… …but I’m pretty sure we’ll see Stroud/Young and BPA come draft day. Which isn’t BAD, but not the best; It’s hitting a solid double with two men on that drives in a run… as opposed to a 3R HR into the upper deck that Anderson/QB would be. 100% agree 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
