To be completely honest, I don’t know the answer. As I said on the podcast, there are two I would take at 13: DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes II and one developmental guy I really like in Jerod Evans.
The reality is the draft is always the best place to find a quarterback, going back the last 25 Super Bowls:
Those are your Super Bowl winners not drafting a quarterback. It is important to invest in a quarterback in the NFL draft.
However, you have to hit on that quarterback, which is the question at hand: Is there a quarterback in 2017 NFL Draft that can be... “The Guy”.
People confuse being Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers or Peyton Manning for being the only way to find a franchise quarterback. Can you find an Eli? Big Ben? Joe Flacco? Can you find a player that keeps you competitive, can get hot, and go on a run with?
Hell, the Cardinals found it twice in veterans Kurt Warner and Carson Palmer, the only problem with that is, you have a short window. You want a player that can keep you relevant for a decade, not three seasons.
That’s the goal, now the question is... Can any of these players be, “The Guy”.
