I couldn't disagree more. This isn't about value in a round. This is about the FUTURE OF THE FRANCHISE. Yeah, it is exactly that important and exactly that dramatic. You can't win without a great QB. Maybe your team can have 1 run here and there, but that's it. You get the best QB you believe is out there, period. You don't pass on them to take the "better player" because a decent QB is waiting later.
I would rather take the best QB in the draft and have a failure in round 2 then take the best player available with the first pick and Jones in round 2 due to value. The first one actually gives a chance of being a SB contender one day.
