I don't think we will need to spend a top 10 pick on a QB next year. I'm looking at the all the NFL teams right now that need franchise QBs and this is my list:
So that's 4 teams. If Bradford, Tebow, Snead, McCoy all come out, one of these guys will fall to the late 1st rd and maybe 2nd. Not to mention, there will be other QBs like Dan Levefour, Jimmy Clausen, and Zac Robinson would be available too.
Green Bay drafted Brian Brohm in the 2nd rd even though they took Aaron Rodgers a year earlier.
We will be sitting pretty.
Rodgers was drafted in 2005, while Brohm was drafted in 2008...so 3 years earlier.
There are more than four teams that I could see taking a top of the line QB if the situation presented itself:
Minnesota- IF Favre is done this season, they may want to look at upgrading the QB position. Though servicable, neither Jackson or Rosenfels (sp) are franchise QBs.
Tennessee- Once Kerry Collins is done you have to wonder if Vince Young is capable of stepping up and being a franchise leader. Most recent performances indicate he isn't.
Carolina- Delhome is on the downside of his career. If he continues this downward slide I'd say he won't be seen as a franchise QB for long.
The Jaguars and Texans have QBs that have shown flashes of brilliance but you have to think that an awful season could leave them open to an upgrade.
If the 49ers want a good QB from next years class (Bradford) it's going to cost them a lot.
