I really see them trying to get QB Matt Ryan now. Unless they feel Troy Smith who is 5-11 to be their QB of the future. If not Ryan, they will most definately go for a Joe Flacco or Brian Brohm in the 2nd.
Troy could be good, but they'd have to commit to him for a year or so before he could start coming into his own. I don't think they'll give him that much time if they draft Matt Ryan. But I think Troy might actually end up being like Bulger or Delhomme or Anderson, Hasselbeck, etc. - he'll not start until some years later after being a career backup with no expectations and then turn into a quality starting QB.
I don't think it will happen, but Troy could beat out Boller for the starting job simply b/c the team doesn't believe in Boller and b/c Troy has such strong leadership skills the squad could rally behind him. But realistically Boller's experience over Troy's inexperience will get him the job for however brief a period until the young guys get their shots.
one of the overlooked reasons on why i think ryan is going to be the pick is that theres a new coach in there and you can't tell me that any new coach wouldnt like to bring in "his guy" at QB.
boller has proven that hes not very good and troy hasnt proven much of anything yet. should they draft ryan and then troy does step it up, then they just have an anderson/quinn or brees/rivers scenario and what team wouldnt like that? to have 2 capable starting QBs isnt a bad thing.....backup and trade value are high
