Excuse me for being somewhat skeptical and for having my own thought process.
I think most of us are "Smith or Wilson, pick one" rather than Smith is the best bar none. Although I do personally think he is. But I think just about anybody in the thread would be about as happy with Wilson at #1, if that's the decision the team makes. I also think most of us will be wildly disappointed if they don't take one of the two. And I don't think there's anybody else even worth discussing, not at the top of the draft. I wouldn't touch Barkley any higher than the 20s, wouldn't touch Bray or Jones in the 1st round at all (and maybe not the 2nd), and I'd probably talk Ryan Nassib before I even mentioned Mike Glennon.
I do think there's a number of QBs we can talk about in the class
- it's not nearly as bad as some folks are trying to make it out to be - I just only see two of them being in the discussion for our pick.
Maybe that changes by March. Who knows. I expect that Smith will be the consensus #1 by then. He should do very well both in his workouts and his interviews. But if it's somebody else? That's fine too.
