That's the thing about the NFL draft. NOBODY KNOWS how good the prospects are ahead of time. All we have are educated guesses. NOBODY can say with 100% certainty how they will turn out. When you have the 1st overall pick and need a QB like we do, you have to do your scouting, find the best prospect you can and roll the dice.
Sometimes people think too much of value and not enough of need. You can't control the prospects that are there, you just have to take your chances with what you've got available.
