If you honestly think the read option is a legitimate way to win multiple Super Bowls, then I guess you have no problem with taking Joeckel 1st overall and taking a QB in R2 or R3?
How hard is it to see they haven't flipped flopped. All the posts say the same thing, you still need a good qb who can throw. You take that when you can and if you have the first you pull the trigger. Wilson was in the top except he was 2 inches 2 short and Harbaugh new what Kaepernick could bring to the table. If Ried had inside knowledge on a 2nd or 3rd round guy then sure but I doubt he does so you take the best QB you can
