    The 2011 draft is just a matter of taking the wrong guy not reaching for a QB. If the Jags took Kaepernick at 10 it would not have been a reach. If the Vikings took Dalton at 12 instead of Ponder it would not have been a reach.

    Taking Ponder at 12 is like us taking Mettenberger or McCarron at 11. That is reaching! And Mettenberger is not as good a prospect as Carr.

    Honestly you coud argue that the Jags taking Gabert at 10 was not a reach. He had a lot of good qualities and was very similar to Bortles this year.

    Carr is a legit first rd prospect.

    And if McCarron/Mettenberger/whatever late round quarterback have better careers then the first round prospects selected?

    Some certainly will but you don't use a first rd pick on a guy you can get in rd 2.

    Sometimes I forget there were QBs in last year's draft because they were that bad.

    Ej Manuel played very well for a rookie 16th pick who was supposed to be a bit raw.

    1. That's not breaking news. Made official yesterday.
    2. We all knew his year 5 option wouldn't be picked up.
    3. Everyone wants to draft a QB.

    We all knew this. It's stupid to get an injury prone Quarterback that much money. Doesn't mean he can't play lights out football next year, and EARN a contract.
