Didn't we do this when we drafted Alex Smith? Or didn't the Lions settle their problems with Stafford? Or the bears with Rex Grossman? Or maybe the Raiders have settled their QB problems with Jamarcus? Speaking of the Raiders doesn't look like Campbell helped the Skins much. Vince Young anyone? Drafting a QB takes skills. These skills aren't currently employed by the niners. And for the simple people who point to Rothesberger, Rivers, Matty ice, Cutler etc yep none of this Years QBs are close to the skill level of these guys. I don't care if we land Mike Vick himself we are gonna give up points after points with the worst secondary in the league and that is why we are not in the playoffs. No way we slide Clements to safety at twelve million next year. Not gonna happen.
Knowing whether you drafted right is another thing, you can't dwell on the fact that because you didn't draft right the first time you shouldn't do the same. Should we over draft for a QB, well it really depends on which QB is available when we pick right. Would I take a Jake Locker or Cam Newton in the top 10, I can't speak for everyone, but no I wouldn't, nor would I take a Ricky Stanzi or a Christian Ponder in the 1st. If a Patrick Peterson were on the board with Ryan Mallet, no doubt I'd take the BPA in Peterson, BUT, I'd make sure with my next pick it would be the best available QB, because again, I know that position does need
to be filled and solidified....that's just the way I'd draft, again I can't speak for everyone.
