Hi folks. I came here in part to help to settle an argument with a friend. He says the following teams would consider drafting a QB in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft: Atlanta, Detroit, and Pittsburgh. I say that no competent GM would do that since all three teams have good, young QB's who have many prime years left. While he agrees that each team has a good QB, he pointed out that that their backup QB's are not very good, so by drafting a QB they could improve in that area. I say it's crazy to waste a first round pick on a QB only to improve your backup position when are there are far more critical needs on your starting roster, and if a team wants a better backup QB, you do so via free agency or in rounds 3 or later in the draft. I also pointed out that I could not remember an instance where a team had a QB as good as Roethlisberger with as many prime years left in his career (6-10) and then went out and drafted another QB in the first round. The closest I could get to that was Denver drafting Tommy Maddox in the first round when Elway was 32. Btw, he also said it was a possibility that the Giants would consider drafting a QB in the first round, which I again disagreed with based on the Roethlisberger example. What do you think?
No announcement yet.
