    The Problem with drafting a QB this year is there isn't a Carson Wentz.

    Rosen and Jax have 1st round grades. But Rosen went to the Cutler personality school and Jax is smallish (injury waiting to happen).

    Allen and Darnold look the part and have franchise potential but may not be plug-n-play ready and have some major flaws (meaning taking them in top 10 is a killer if they go bust).

    So.... do you simply chase a Brees or Smith and hope for 2-year stopgap. Do you roll dice on AJ? Do you shell out the big bucks for Cousins?

    Tough call.
    Even Wentz wasn't considered an absolute can't miss prospect like Luck. That's the thing. You can never tell with drafted QBs. The question is, are we a QB away from being a contender again? I think we are. In that case, I would go after a good veteran. Cousins is in his prime and would solve our QB problem for the next 7 or 8 years. Still, he not super elite and would cost about 25 million per year. We'd have to sacrifice in other areas. I don't particularly care for Alex Smith, but he is having a great year and he doesn't turn the ball over. He would cost less than Cousins. After that, the pickings are slim. Teddy Bridgewater? AJ McCarron? Meh.

    If we draft someone, would it be worth moving to the top of the 1st to get our guy? It was for Philly, but it still cost them two 1st rounders, plus a second, third, and fourth. I like Darnold, Rosen, and Allen, but they all have their warts. One of the dudes at Walterfootball.com has us taking Clayton Thorson in the first round. He seems a more likely candidate to fall to us if we have a top 15 pick.

    • Good news is we may be able to trade up to 1.... Elway has relationship with John Lynch. They just traded for a QB and we should have a top 10 pick too.

        While I doubt Lynch will give us any presents, I do think that because of the relationship he has with Elway that Lynch will give Elway a chance to match any other offers he gets. Thing is, I don't like Rosen and I hear neither do his teammates.

          I hear Rosen makes Jay Cutler look like mother Teresa. Not so sure we'd want that guy in orange n blue lol but imagine him jawing at the offensive line...

          • Yeah, I would avoid Rosen like the plague. But.... maybe we like Jax, Darnold or Allen enough to make a leap of faith.

            I think I prefer to go OT and sign a free agent (Smith, Cousins, Garrapolo, AJ, Brees)...

                  Would be something if Elway made a bold move for Stafford or Luck.

                  Multiple picks with Ray and Booker or something?

                    Are you aware that Stafford just signed a huge long term contract with Detroit right? His play behind a poor oline has not shown that Detroit might want to get rid of him either.

                        Yes, in fact, I am aware of that. Ergo why I added the "bold".... thinking of a talented, young-ish QB who I would target in a trade... on level of Luck.... and he comes to mind. This is a DEN forum so why not speculate. I never said DET would be willing to move him.... but everybody has a price, no?

                        • I wonder if Paxton, Ray,
                          Roby and 2 first rounders get Luck?

                            Interesting. I wouldn't put is passed Irsay to move him. I do question his durability, though. He's a tough guy, but a trick throwing shoulder is a little scary.

                              So you want to cripple this team further for a qb that is always injured

                                I wouldn't make the trade, of course, if his injury is deemed serious by our doctors. But, ifnit checks out.... I would happily offer Paxton plus 3 of these: Ray, Roby, and two 1st Rounders. (Either 2 players and a pick or 2 picks and a player).

                                I doubt PHI thinks they crippled themselves trading for Wentz
