In the end, I think that if you're running a team, you have to trust that your scouts are worth the money they're paying them.  If they think there's a franchise quarterback prospect available, you draft him while accepting the fact that you may be wrong.  If they're wishy-washing on it, you hope another team will back up the Brinks truck for the chance to draft him.  And again, accept the fact that you may be making the wrong decision.  You just can't be paralyzed by the fear that you *might* make a bad call.

That's not the way the draft works anymore.  You are not chained to high pick QBs, or any position, now.  Even if you take a QB with the first pick now you are paying him less then league average.  The Jags suffered very small short term cap hits for letting go of Gabbert as early as they did.  Plus they even got a pick back for him, because he might be able to become that Mike Glennon level of backup option. 

Please wait…
