    Draft positioning is nice but I don't think it's that important in the grand scheme of things. Having a team that knows how to win is better than a few spots difference in your first round pick. There are maybe a few instances where it truly matters where you pick, and usually it happens with having the first pick. I'm thinking of Luck, Manning and Elway. And that's 3 examples in 30 years. Look at this past draft. Last December everyone was sure Fields was not just the 2nd best QB, he would likely be the 2nd overall pick. No one was thinking of Zach Wilson. Trey Lance was seen as a project. Mac Jones was getting 2nd round buzz.

    And who's happy at the moment? Pats certainly should feel good, but everyone else probably is a bit nervous that their QB needs to improve. Improvement is likely going to happen but it still needs to happen.

    You know who else is probably happy? The Texans. Davis Mills looks like a quality QB as a rookie, and he was a third round choice. Where all the QB's are projected right now probably doesn't matter. Some guys will get pushed up boards for no other reason than they play an important position. Others will get pushed down because they don't look like the current prototype of a mobile QB with a cannon for an arm. Bottom line, you are picking one roster spot of 53 with your first round choice. If the rest of your team is doing so poorly you get to pick slightly higher than you otherwise would have I don't think that's a good problem to have. It's the NFL, all games matter. Experience matters. Winning matters. Losing is infectious. So is winning. Whether we're picking 6th or 11th should not be a concern of ours heading into the offseason.
    Funny. I thought the narrative early in the year was this guy was a bust....he had some horrendous games.........oh,wait, the team developed him and changed to accommodate his strengths.....didn't know that was an option

        I mean he was just drafted so i dont see how anyone could reasonably call him a bust.

            I don't want all of them to lose bc if we get "too" high we probably won't take a quarterback, which is what we need.
            My boy JUSTIN FIELDS whats up man..."BACK THEN THEY DIDN'TWANT YOU, NOW YOU HOT THEY ALL ON YA." I may know just a "lil" about qbs....but not too much.

              See I think the opposite, if we can get to number 7 we have a legit shot at a top QB prospect in a trade up. We have 2 2nds and 2 3rds because of the Von trade. With a higher pick that might be enough with maybe just 1 future pick to get up top

                True but I don't think we will have to trade up. And if we do I hope it's not for Pickett

                    Maybe we can trade for Fields and get 2 wins in 10 starts!

                        Hope he shows alot more than this year!!!!
                        He went 2-8 on a team that made the playoffs the year before he arrived..
                        To each their own interesting how you root for the Bears Qb and crap on your teams qb. You do realize you sound like a bears fan right? I'm not saying you are, but you are pro Fields and anti Lock! Just saying ?

                            Root for whoever you want! I for one am glad we didn't draft Fields he has made Trubisky look good.

                              I don't care what you glad about. With surtain was had another losing season.

                              Maybe if we didn't draft Lock like I said. We wouldn't have wasted 3 years on a backup

                                Surtain is a solid starter!
                                Fields took a playoff team into the gutter!
