You think they were trying to land a starting QB through the draft without drafting one in the first 3 rounds in over 10 years?

It seems joesports is vastly overrating the QBs in this draft, a lost cause debate.

Garrett with the first pick. The best defensive player available at #12...especially if it's Barnett...and go defensive BPA with both second rounders, as well. At least you would have the makings of a competent NFL defense that could be on the way to a championship level defense in time when added to the current team.

The franchise QB will have to come next year, when they will undoubtedly be picking in the top five and Darnold, Rosen and Browning will be eligible.

I agree.

I can't imagine they pass on Trubisky if he's there at #12 - not saying it is or isn't a good idea, but it would surprise me if they didn't pull the trigger on him at 12.

That said, has there ever been a draft where a QB didn't go in the top 11? I wouldn't think so.

Yep, see my post above. In 2000, Pennington was the first QB taken and he was picked 18th. Druckenmiller was picked 26th in 97. In 13, EJ Manuel went 16th as the first QB taken.

Interesting. Good info. Wouldn't have guessed that at all.

None of those names exactly inspire confidence either...

If the choice at 12 is between Trubisky and the best available defensive back between Lattimore/Humphrey/Adams/Hooker that will be interesting to see what Cle does.

I only discovered it because I was curious like you. We get used to all of the drafts with QBs going early and forget about those down years.

I've seen a lot of mocks where Lattimore, Adams and Hooker are long gone by the 12th.

Same. I think it's likely 3/4 top DB's are gone by 12. I would imagine Humphrey will be the one left. But it's possible some teams could have Conley as the #4 guy after the combine.

I'm surprised at how Lattimore has shot up the boards. Don't get me wrong, I've always liked him, but he's getting mentioned as a top 5 pick.

Lattimore is a freak. He is a legit talent, but he has been fragile all the way back through his Glenville days. Last year was the only season he made it though, and only because OSU limited his game snaps to about 50% and he basically didn't practice. He will be injured again and again. I would not draft him, even though I love his talent.

A damn shame we only got to watch Lattimore and Hooker for one season at Ohio State

Mary Kay Cabot thinks that if the Browns think Trubisky is a franchise QB, they should use the number 1 pick for him. She also thinks that if they think the same of Garopollo, they should not hesitate to give up the 1 pick for him.

How is this really saying anything. So.....if they think one of them is worthy of the #1 pick you should use it on them....Genius.

The problem lies in their thinking either being correct or incorrect.
