All im saying is there's no way a teams gives up a top 5 pick next year. Why not just take Barkley or Geno Smith?
I agree no team is gonna give up a top-5 pick for Kaep, but that's not what I was arguing for. I'm just saying there's no way he goes for a 3rd or 4th. I would not be surprised to see him fetch a late-1st or early-2nd.
By the end of this season Kaep will be even more polished and will look more attractive than the 2nd-3rd tier of draft eligible qbs because of his athleticism and familiarity with nfl offenses.
IMO this is all moot because Kaep is Jim harbaughs hand-picked project and there's no way we trade him. He's too good of a match for what Harbaugh wants to do.
