    We must move up to 8 (Vikings) to get a top tier guy. Bortles will still be there and Manziel may fall there depending upon his "character issues"...

    What we can't do is reach for Carr at 11 or hope someone falls to us in the 2nd.

    Question is: how do we move up to 8? Can we risk moving down for Carr? I'll hang up and listen.

    Absolutely no to Carr and Manziel.

    No QB in the first. Chill, take defensive BPA and see what the QB outlook is in the second. No reason to waste picks. If we don't get a guy, oh well. Locker plays, we get another top 10 next season.

    If there's a way to move up to 8 to get Bortles we'd be stupid not to pull the trigger. Especially if we're going in knowing we want a QB early.

    I have a feeling Carr drops into the 2nd round. Even Kiper said he could slip into the 2nd round today on ESPN.

    I agree with Ensconatus (which there was an easier way to say that name) that we don't need to take a QB in the 1st round, and it damn sure doesn't need to be Carr.

    Bortles won't be there at #8. Do you know the cost of moving up these days? No way we need to move up for someone like Bortles.

    The question I had was how do we move up to 8 to get Bortles or Manziel if he falls. What will be the price? This is IF we're hell bent on getting a QB.

    Why wouldn't Bortles be there at 8? I have him going to the Vikes at 8.

    Because he would have to slide past the Jags or Browns and I just don't see that happening.
