From PFW today Mark Schofield: What we learned on tape about the Senior Bowl quarterbacks


...Of course, your intrepid evaluator kept his ears to the grindstone to pick up any quarterback buzz, and the general theme that seems to be emerging is this: Lock and Jones might very well be first round picks, but most evaluators, if forced to look at them in a vacuum, might consider them more second round quarterbacks. The issue is one of need.

With teams near the top of the draft such as the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos needing a QB, odds are that these guys will find homes early in the draft. In a quarterback thirsty league, teams will crawl through the desert to any mirage on the horizon, and upon finding only sand, they might still drink the sand, struggling to know the difference…

So its one thing for the QB hungry teams to reach with their own pick for a QB out of desperation, but to trade away half your draft to move up to a top 3 pick just to get a Round 2 caliber QB?  I don’t think that’s going to happen.  Maybe Haskins will be rated that highly, but it doesn’t sound like the other candidates will be worth trading up for.
