Say you're the first pick of the draft in the NFL and your current quarterback sucks (somebody like Sanchez or Tebow). Would you draft a quarterback in the 1st round or try and trade for a serviceable quarterback that is in the NFL, or take your chances at a quarterback in the later rounds?

The quarterback class kind of sucks this year. Manziel doesn't have good size and has a mediocre arm and not to mention any potential off-the-field problems. Bridgewater is decent enough but isn't exactly the best physical specimen at quarterback and played vs. terrible competition. Bortles has some potential but played weak competition and suffers from inconsistency. Mettenberger has a good arm and great size but has shown to be one of the most inconsistent quarterbacks in College Football this past season. Aaron Murray has good talent but not ideal size and will be coming off of an ACL injury.

The QB class is as good as it's been in a while, there's just no Andrew Luck at the top.

If you don't have an elite QB and there's a potential one to be had you take him without question.

The Texans will take either Manziel or Bridgewater. I'd bet my life.

If I am Houston. I get Clowney or the LB out of UCLA to go with Watt and that defense. I run the ball, control the clock and leave it in the D's hands.

With that d you could just ask your QB to help you score 14 points and win a lot of games. Just lol if they draft Manziel.

I wouldn't touch a QB until at least the third round.

Oh yeah, forgot about McCarron somehow. He's solid but I doubt he is 1st round material.

Depends on what shape my OL is in.  If it's shaky and there's a franchise OL available, I'd take him in the first round and look for a serviceable QB in a later round--AJ, perhaps.  :trollface:

Said it from the start of the year. Bridgewater is your number one pick.

Damn, I thought you were saying if I were literally the first pick what I would do.

Easy answer, buy a bunch of hot sloots.

I would make a trade up in the draft to get JFFM and let it ride....if I needed to.  

But I'd draft him ESPECIALLY if I was the Texans.  They have great talent and weapons and he would be a great compliment to a team many predicted would be in this years Super Bowl.

He makes them a real contender IMO.

Bortles is second followed by Bridgewater...but none but Johnny Football are worth a trade IMO.

I'll say this too...if Murray comes back from his knee, he could turn into a good NFL QB.

I'd take Tajh Boyd or Connor Shaw late before wasting a first round pick on a 3rd round caliber QB, which is what Bridgewater, Manziel, Bortles, etc. are IMO. Hell, give Jordan Lynch a chance in the 7th round.

We won't have to stack the box, our athletes are better. Read the first sentence, Auburn won't have over 175. Bet anything you want, it's not gonna happen. That's the one thing Bama can do without a doubt 100% mark it down, and have been for years.

If you're going to bet, it will be longer than signing day. This is a rivalry that lasts 365 days, you would have to at least keep it until next football season or this isn't even worth mentioning. Besides, Bama could be winning late in the game and the scrubs get the 200.
Either way, it won't be happening to Bama's defense.

Well, AJ is projected higher than Murray, so of course you forgot. :trollface:
