Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better. - S. Beckett
If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. -- John F. Kennedy, January 20, 1961
My point is, why not go for it for once and draft a QB that looks and plays the part instead of gambling on has beens or never have beens?......people keep thinking that that if you take a QB in the middle rounds they'll find another Brady. For every Brady found in round 6, how many QB's drafted after round 5 have done anything in the NFL?.......you find good o-linemen in the middle to later rounds all the time. But very rarely do you find great QB's that late.
One thing is for sure. You will never find a good QB that late if you don't ever try.
There's nothing wrong with picking a late round QB to see what he can offer. The only problem would be if you are drafting him late with the intentions of making him your starter at some point. It makes sense to draft a mid-round QB if you want a young QB in your system but don't have a chance to draft guys highly who are worth the lofty draft pick. A great example is Tannehill this year, who most scouts feel is a second round talent, so he may not be worth drafting at number 8 yet may be gone by the second time we come around. It's simply not worth it to draft a guy at number 8 who the team may not envision being a franchise QB prospect. Why not take a player who has dominant potential at his position, which the number 8 pick should have.
So in that case, it would still be really nice to bring in a younger guy, not necessarily because you think he will be the starter, but because he can still pay dividends down the road and you need a third QB anyway.
Pass. Wilson is a backup at best in the NFL. We need to draft a starter.
Pat Devlin has a much greater chance of developing into a serviceable player. Honestly, what would be the point of drafting Wilson? It's too bad, because he seems to have everything needed to develop into a NFL QB...except height. The guy is 5'10" standing on his tippy-toes. He'll never be a NFL QB.
Wouldnt draft him even in the 7th round, not a player of the present or future for the fins. He looks like a seahawk type of qb.
The whole season, drink to that!
