    Nothining wrong with drafting a QB every year, the issue becomes how high of a pick do you use based upon the progress Tanny showed and the talent he possesses.

    Based on what I saw I would prefer not drafting a QB before round 4....after that go for it.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    All these quarterbacks have one thing on common over Tannehill. Better running game, better wrs and better o line.

    The 49ers in fact spent 3 first round picks on their o line but they just hit on their while we struggle. They draft playmakers on d, we draft Ted ginn over Patrick Willis. Just because we miss on virtually every other pick doesn't mean Tannehill sucks.

    Latest media and fan team darling... last season it was Cam Newton and the Panthers. Cam's play was a lot more tame this season after DC's diagnosed how to defense their play.

    Wilson had more college pass attempts with almost 1500 attempts at QB than any of the other rookies drafted and played for 2 universities in the ACC and Big-Ten. He is more experienced and it shows. Let's see how all these guys are faring in the next two seasons.

    I'm not sold on T-hill yet as well but we already have been developing Pat Devin for some years now lets see where that goes first cause we have so many issues at other positions we need to spend all our pics on those needs and R. Wilson was a superstar qb in college with a size issue and there aren't any R. Wilson's out there this year with the same credentials

    Look back at the front page and look at how many "no-thanks" I received from introducing a topic that was discussion worthy. We have been so starved as a fanbase for a qb that most fans will take anything thrown to us that incites hope. I only wanted to see how many fans agreed with the way I was feeling about having a healthy competition for the most important position on the offensive side of the ball.

    Go back re-read what you wrote. You specifically said to draft someone in the 2nd-4th rounds. A lot of your "No-thanks" were due specifically to this. Perhaps in 2014 or later. Right now, it doesn't make sense to do that given this is Tannehill's rookie season and he displayed ability, intelligence, marked improvement over the course of the season, and, yes, potential.

    No one is arguing against bringing in additional QBs as MMoore is probably gone in free agency and we need guys with the ability to step in and play if Tannehill is injured. But for now you don't spend a pick unless they are the BPA in 5th-7th rounds or, like Devlin, an undrafted rookie FA. A 2nd, 3rd, or 4th isn't that logical this draft as we have greater areas of need - like DE, WR, TE, CB, or OG.

    Let me give you a scenerio. Miami is 8-5 and those final 3 games is make or break. T Hill goes down and is expected to be out for 2 weeks. who do you want to come in the game? that 7th round or undreafted QB. Or a decent guy that has some capability that you spent a 4th round on? Neither is that good of a deal to be honest and right now as much as we want to believe we have the right guy, our QB situation is not a good one!.

    We have enough needs to fill in other positions to not consider a QB until after the 5th round. Devlin should be enough competition plus maybe another teams released vet will be our 3rd QB if Moore goes else where.If Tanny crapped the bed last year which he did not it may be different but to think we are taking a QB in the mid rounds is pretty unlikely and just wishful thinking.

    Considering how we have squandered 2nd round picks in the past, if there was someone that fell to us that we believe could produce a healthy competition and help us solidify our QB spot, I'd pull the trigger. I wouldn't be trying to hurt Tannehill's feelings, but i'd be doing what's best for the team. This years draft might not have someone as high as the 2nd round but the 4th is possible. Lets say Geno Smith/Matt Barkely, etc nose dives to the 4th round of the draft I wouldn't be upset if the Dolphins drafted them. Would you? This year we can fill some holes in the first 3 rounds considering we have 5 picks. Not to draw comparisons, but Mark Sanchez played average in his rookie season and never had any serious competition since he's been a Jet now look where they are. Qb-less. I rather plan for the worst (Drafting a replacement) or the best ( Drafting a player that can be flipped for a higher pick if he's good or having a competent back up).

    As an NC State student, I got to see Russell Wilson play many games. Although he was a big time college player, exciting and obviously talented, I don't think anyone (and I mean ANYONE) even here at State thought that success would translate to the NFL. Saying we should've drafted Russell Wilson is like saying we should've drafted Tom Brady...he's a one in a million kind of guy and nobody knew he would be this good.
    I will throw one name out there worth considering in this year's draft - Mike Glennon. Ironically, he was Russell Wilson's successor at NC State and helped fans here forget about Russell very quickly. Kiper has him as a potential late 1st rounder. Obviously, I don't think we should reach that high. But if he does end up falling a ways, he would be worth it to push Tannehill. Glennon has drawn many comparisons to Matt Ryan and was coached in college by Tom O'Brien who coached Ryan at BC. Strongest arm in the draft, and will have a lengthy career. If we don't get him, I really hope the Jets don't.
