"Not "Worth" The #1 Pick???

I have heard soooo many columnists and "experts" comment about the fact that there really isnt a QB "worth" the #1 pick.

What a bunch of horse crap. In the old CBA, when you had to pay the #1 pick $60-$70 million, I could understand this arguement and could agree with that. But in today's CBA, you dont dish that much out.

Andrew Luck's contract was for $22.1 million over 4 years. Yes, they had to pay $14.5 million in a signing bonus but so what?! In 2010, the Rams paid Sam Bradford a 6 year, $78 Million dollar contract with $50 Million GUARANTEED! Thats $13 million PER YEAR vs. Luck's $5.525 Million per year.

So even if Smith or whomever isnt the true Best Player available, I really dont think that in a situation like ours, where QB is such an obvious position of need, that $22 million for the #1 pick is really as big of a "reach" as we are led to believe by the experts.

To give you a comparison to Luck's #1 pick contract from 2012 at $22M, in 2010, this would be equivalent to the contract given to the #12 pick in the 2010 draft, Ryan Matthews in SD for $25.65M over 5 years.

Heck, I say draft a QB in Rounds 1, 2 & 3! Give us some frikken QB competition!

Rant end.

But saying that this years crop is complete garbage is a stupid statement as well. There is plenty of talent in this draft.
it's a subpar year for the QB position, kc needs a QB and the question is whether or not a player like Geno is worth the #1 pick. Obviously Andrew Luck was, not so much with any of this year's QBs.

KC has to draft a QB, there's no getting around that. The question is should the #1 pick be Geno or another one of this draft classes QBs? Maybe kc can trade down, pick up a few more picks and still get a good QB? Just say'n.

Too risky.

If there's a single QB whom you're targeting, you cannot chance not getting him.

Why am I feeding the troll? Oh well.

Jamarcus Russell and Geno Smith have 1 thing in common: the color of their skin. Other than that, nice try.

Of course not. Just saying you need to make sure you do what you are supposed to. Let us worry about the normal draft class that exists this year and every other when Luck isn't involved.
