I am hearing Colt McCoy has a chance to drop like a stone well into the second round. To me with our current QB situation. If by some miracle he is there we have to take him. He is by no mean who I want in the first round...but in the second...where we pick, he is a steal.
If you dont' want him in the 1st, it likely means you don't see him as a franchise QB. So why get him at all? A late round guy with potential is one thing, but spending a 2nd rounder on someone that doesn't really have the physical tools to make it at the next level seems like a waste
That's the nature of drafting. Not everyone can be a 1st rounder and not every player is envisioned as an immediate starter. Some guys have impressive skills and potential, but they just aren't seen as someone who is ready to be thrown directly into the mix.
There are plenty of successful QBs taken after the 1st and they probably were not seen as franchise QBs when they came out either.
There is a lot of talent to be had for our first three picks, and if picked right they could take us to the next level. I would prefer to take three guys with more potential with those picks, then if we really need a QB next season we can use a first (if Alex and Nate don't pan out).
I have read that Nate was considered a 2nd round talent until the disability thing came out, since Nate has been in the system a year I reckon they McCoy would be the same as Nate is now, so IMO it would be a waste.
I kind of agree. However, I remember Eagles fans being irrate that Reid drafted Kolb in the 2nd. All the draft analysts laughed at the move and considered it a horrible pick because it wasn't a need for them. On the other hand, as soon as McNabb went down and Kolb came in and played well for them, everyone was praising Reid and the organization for having the forsight to Kolb.
Quality depth is essential at the QB position. I hope Davis is the guy, but another QB wouldn't hurt. They're only going to make each other better.
I don't really expect us to take a QB early, but if someone falls, the BPA could be a QB. It's not out of the question.
