That's not what some folks are suggesting. They're suggesting using 2 of our first 3 picks on the position. No, the Seahawks would've never done that.
And frankly, the Seahawks are an outlier. If you're going to cite them as your model, then I guess we need to draft a bunch of 3rd and 4th round QBs, right? They got lucky.
I like the idea of not just adding one guy and saying we've "addressed" the position.
I like signing a vet FA, AND drafting the best QB available, and if the damned world league wouldn't have gone tits up I'd look there as well.
The Niners didn't quit looking for QB's because they had Montana. Packers kept drafting and adding guys behind good QB's.
You should be looking to improve your starter or depth every single year at that position...
