not drafting a scrub but drafting a potential number 1 QB, (back up plan)
The teams that need a QB right now suck, why would they invest in a back up QB for 8-9 mill when there's more needed through out that team.
Yep, Buffalo, Cleveland, KC, Ari all do pretty much suck. If they use a 1st Rounder to pick up someone else that sucks, 3-4 years from now, they will still be in the basement. With Vick resigning and it looks like Foles will stay in Philly, that leaves Alex, maybe Flynn, maybe Flacco (depending on the Tag he gets) and a whole pile of bad potential rookies.
You trade for Alex, you have a starter for 4-5 years that you can build around. And he isnt a $20 million qb, as far as starters go, hes pretty cheap. So you can build around that. Cleveland has Richardson and a high DP, assuming they resign Thomas, he has protection. Buf has Spiller and a few wideouts, KC has alot of pieces in place and will likely tag Bowe, all they need is a qb.
Are you trying to say that any of these teams wouldnt want to be a contender now (especially KC with that horrible division) with Alex as opposed to drafting in the top ten for the next 4 years while hoping they get a shot at a Kap, RG3 or Luck?
