Occasionally the team will be in a position to settle for Ryan Tannehill-type prospects. Some of those will work out, some of them won't. Either way you slice it, you won't BE in a position to get a top QB when one comes around.

If you're going to go for the best QB you can find, it's far better to draft a guy and live with his failures and remain in suckville.
What if you draft a dud this year and then next year a legit prospect is sitting there for you? You aren't going to give up on a guy you picked in the top 5 after one season.

If Denver would have drafted Gabbert at #2 last year we wouldn't have gone after Peyton Manning.

I think you should just draft the best player available no matter what. You don't think the Rams knew that RG3 was a better player than Bradford? They were stuck with Bradford and were forced to trade the pick. Let other teams make the mistake and then trade up when there is a legit prospect.
