With Richardsons background I have a really hard time taking him at 1.
I'd also say, when you add positional value to some of these guys, I think that makes a better case for a QB.
Personally, I think you have some of your DL guys too high, as well as Milliner and Banks. I'm not taking a CB at 1, when I can get one at 34 who has equal skill.
I think the combine showed, along with what pro days will show, that there is a significant gap between the top QB maybe 2 depending on Barkley, and the rest of the crop.
Looking at just the ticket-selling angle of things, I think Geno Smith would be the biggest boon to business, hands down.
Don't know if it'd be the best football decision, but there's that.
