"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.

With the new rookie salary scale, money doesn't even enter the discussion.

I've said this in other threads. The only way you can say a QB isn't worth the #1 pick this year is if there is someone who is. So if not a QB, who?

Even if you want to claim that no one is worth the #1 pick, someone is still going to be chosen first overall. What's the difference betwween taking a QB 5 picks early, and taking a LT or LB 5 picks early? Expectations?

KC needs a QB. It's not like they can bring in a decent vet for significantly cheaper.

None of the people claiming to know what a player is worth before he's played in the NFL know what they're talking about.
So you just throw darts at the board during the draft then?

That's a pretty ridiculous statement.

Naming a specific QB at this point is premature. They need a housecleaning first and then hire the right GM/HC. Then worry about getting the QB that fits the vision of the HC.

Luck, Griffin, Wilson, Tannehill, it wouldn't have mattered in KC this year with Romeo and Daboll.

I agree with this. Especially if they bring in a guy with a specific offensive system.

sometimes you just have to draft for need, and when you have 1 QB on the roster who was deemed not good enough to replace 2 guys that are not very good... Really, you figure out which QB you think is best, and draft him. No messing around.
