So you'd be comfortable with us taking a QB if the staff had doubts about him being the answer?We're to draft a QB that we aren't really sure about. This is your stance? The alternative stance of wanting our staff to be 100 percent sold on him is, in your words, ridiculous? You're serious? Just confirm that you're serious for me.Thanks.

100% sold seems like kind of a high bar.  There are always going to be *some* doubts.  Is your standard really "we are completely certain that there's no chance this draft pick fails" rather than "we feel good enough about this guy to draft him"?  I'd be pretty danged dubious about a scout who told me the former, even with prospects like Luck or Manning.

100 percent sold means that those making the decision are all on board with the pick, and yes that he's going to be a significant upgrade over what you're trying to replace. No player is perfect and no staff is capable of figuring that out before hand, but if they can't all stand behind the pick, and if they don't all believe he's going to be a significant upgrade, then it's a poor pick that needs to be avoided.

Please wait…
