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?
Some of us believe we are seeing the development of guys like Wilson and Kaepernick as passers while their staffs are taking advantage of their athletic ability.
We still believe that the best way to find the QB you need is using the first round, but clearly, there are other ways to get there.
The fact that there are other ways, however, doesn't diminish the belief that we have to try, after 30 years, to find that guy with our first pick.
