to answer our questions i suppose

do you rule with field as say a purdy and build the best pieces possible around him using your draft capital from this trade of 1

or

do you draft c. williams and try to get what you can with our remaining resources to help him win

its the age old questions do you hook your wagon to the brightest star or build a team of less bright stars and a average joe QB? What gives you the best opportunity to win

SF can sustain injuries and still keep chugging along, KC loses Patty say for the year might as well call it a season and start thinking about the Royals or BBQ or whatever mid west people think of other then Patty

They should totally draft him, but does he pull an Eli and refuse to play there?

I happen to believe Brock Purdy has played at the franchise level QB for 2 seasons now. I don't see Fields as comparable in any way. I don't see Chicago rolling him out again because I do not believe he will ever be a franchise QB. I don't believe they will want to pay him what a starting QB earns today. No I see them resetting the clock on a rookie that has far more upside.

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

There is really only 1 Mahomes but Caleb could be the next Elite scrambler like an A Rod was. People forget how great Rodgers was in his prime at moving and throwing on the run. You don't have to be Josh Allen to do that

I think a lot of teams make a lot of mistakes doing that. You see it every single year where teams overdraft QB's. Anthony Richardson went #4 last year, that is nuts.

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

The tape on Maye shows his potential. Kid is legit , accuracy downfield , Arm talent and moves better than he looks.

After watching all 3 guys I’d say Caleb is 1 but Maye 2 and then Daniels 3 but that’s not a knock on Daniels he’s legit. All 3 QBs could be top 5

I’d drive off the Coronado bridge if we don’t draft a QB with our first pick.

it's not like we'd be reaching. Joe Alt at #2 is reaching. thinking penix is a suitable sub with two bad knees and a shoulder... :/

It's a good QB class and we've got the pick to take advantage of it. And yes, 1 or 2 of those top 3 may not live up to the hype, but saying that's a good reason to never take a shot and condemn the team to mediocrity (or hoping we hit a rodgers or a brady) is probably a much lower percentage play.

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

Anyone else wonder if this might be another '83 or '04 class, where we're over thinking it? Everyone looking a Williams as the only viable franchise QB? Trading up could be the worst move considering what it would take away from the rest of the roster. Let someone else pull the pin on that grenade, take best QB on our board at #2, then build the rest of the team around him.
