But that's what Geno Smith is for.
I wholly endorse the high risk pick at QB; we have very little to lose there. But there's no need to do it twice
. Get your HR pick made, then get a good, competent, backup/spot starter in there.
I also think you're misstating when you say we know his ceiling and that it isn't very high. No, it's not Tom Brady, but it's Matt Schaub. If you could have Matt Schaub as a fallback position on this roster, wouldn't it make all the sense in the world?
