But this year? Oh, no way, he's not worth a high pick.

In any other draft any other year, his name's in the discussion for the #1. Just not this year. In a class with no clear star at any position.

I also think, however, that there's another factor: we have the #1 pick. And as everyone knows, we haven't drafted a quarterback since Moses parted the red sea. So I think there's a well-deserved assumption that we won't take one now. And I think a certain vocal segment of the fanbase is gunshy about doing it as well. Maybe they've been conditioned to think that way, always go for the 'safe' pick, or maybe they just don't believe it will ever happen, either.
Great post.
