This is true. But it's also true that none of us have any idea which path Dorsey and Reid will choose at this point in time.
If the mandate from Clark Hunt was "Find me a Franchise QB THIS year", I'd imagine they'll take someone at #1 overall. If the mandate was "Find me a Franchise QB in the next three years", they have options.
None of us know. Dorsey, Reid and Hunt have all stated publicly that choosing a QB #1 overall isn't a mandate. While some people choose to believe they're bluffing, it's also just as likely that they're telling the truth.
I will refrain from making a judgement until after the decision has been announced.
