Now you're back to this dumb shit?
Who cares if the quarterback is drafted with the top pick or a pick in the 20s in a year where the talent is supposedly the same from top to bottom?
I doubt the Packers regret spending a first round pick on a qb that sat on the bench for 3 years...or the 49ers taking a quarterback in the second that say for nearly 2 years...or the Giants trading the house, barn, car and everything else for Eli with the intention of him not playing right away...or the Bengals drafting Carson Palmer first overall with intentions of him sitting his whole rookie year.
I don't think Geno needs that much time, but the Mooch interview brought up concerns for me and I'm sure those were apparent to Reid in his interview, as well.
Now, none of that means we are gonna draft Geno first overall, but your reasoning for not doing so has holes in it.
