Default If we were to take a QB in the first rd, who would you want?

Lets set homerism aside, here. I know thats asking the impossible but, nevertheless. I really dont want to take a QB in the 1st, but Im curious to know where the board stands IF we do.

Ideally we could trade back from #8 spot and grab Sam Bradford at 20-25 range, and still have ammo to grab a solid OG/ILB/Best Player available with the extra picks we get.

If Bradford is healthy, then I wouldn't mind having him back up Orton...

That being said, no way do I want a QB in the first. We will have some great prospects available in rounds 3 - 6. McCoy in the third would be great.

I just wish I knew exactly what McD thought of Brandstater.

This.

Not only is it a total crapshoot with this position in the first round for some reason, but I think McD thinks he has a knack for finding qbs that other's don't. Whether that is true, I don't know, but I'm thinking that his arrogance when it comes to the QB position will keep him from taking a hyped 1st round qb.

I wouldn't be against taking a shot on Tebow in the 7th as a project TE or special teams player.

Yeah, I dont either but that wasnt the question. Maybe you should reread the question more than once to digest the premise.

Has he? Was he not jawjacking with Harbaugh in their last game? Hasnt he recently received two black eyes?

The theory would be that QB is a premium position and that this is a good draft for QBs.

I said TOny Pike even though I have seen maybe parts of 3 games. I want to be different so I can say I told you so. Tebow doesnt seem to be a QB in the NFL for the Broncos system. Clausen can be a good QB, but I have question marks with him. I think Bradford can be a NFL QB starting in a few years. I prefer we dont take a QB and take a need or trade down. Exciting Cutler is still giving to the Broncos with a Top 10 pick! Amazing we didnt have to suck like the Raiders and Chiefs to do it also!

IF we take a qb I rank them in this order of preference:
Bradford
Clausen
Mallet
Snead

I dont think we will draft a qb though

Jake Locker. Since he's staying a UW it makes this an easy pick.

Bradford is the tin man
Clausen is a ****ing retard with an attitude and has the loser's stink on him
Mallet is palatable but not the guy
Snead is as consistant is like my great granny's dump sessions; irregular and when they stink they wreak of a killer stench that will linger and make all who come into contact with it stink for some time afterwards. Stay away!
Tebow is a douchebag with a noodle arm. He gets more hang time on his tosses than Berger on his punts.
Pike is 1st team all Charmin, super soft and pretty expensive for picking up ****.

Brandstater ladies, Brandstater eats rocks and craps gunpowder.

I really don't think McDaniels will take a QB in the first. It just goes against everything he seems to believe about the QB position. With that being said, Bradford would be my choice in the first.

It will be very interesting to see what he does about the QB position this offseason... Will Orton get a decent mid to long-term contract (indicating he's our guy for the foreseeable future), or will he maybe get an RFA tender (indicating that he's a stop-gap)? Will he draft a guy in the 2nd/3rd/4th that maybe projects as a starter in the future? Will he draft a guy in the 5th/6th/7th, indicating that Brandstater is his guy in the future? I'll be really curious, as I can't get a read on whether McDaniels is satisfied with Orton's progression this season or not...

FWIW - I keep coming across various sources in the draftnik community that point to a potential draft day slide due to Clausen's personality/attitude... much of which relates to how he was brought up and thus will be a challenge to adjust.

This may be a more important factor than people realize at this point. Of course, it only takes one team willing to overlook those kinds of issues for him to go in the top 5. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

One thing to worry about with Tebow is how emotional he gets about the game. People often point to that as being his strength, and they'll rattle off some mumbo-jumbo about how iconic he is, and how he's a great leader, yadda yadda.

Maybe that stuff is true, and maybe he'll do all that. But, a lot of QBs of his caliber through high school and then in college at a big program like that have not dealt with losing. It falls back to that whole "how will he deal with adversity?" issue, and so far he's made a rambling diatribe (which he backed up by winning the NC) and cried on camera. You can call that passion and commitment if you want, but I'd call it overly emotional and potentially reckless. I don't think we're in danger of drafting him, but if the legend of Tim Tebow launches him up the draft board and he lands on a piss-poor team, I'd start worrying about him having a mental breakdown when it takes a while for him to learn how to win in the NFL.
