It isn't a "this year's QB class sucks" thing; I feel like this class is largely average. It's just that the rest of this draft is so damn deep. There are going to be OLBs, Ss and CBs in the 3rd and 4th rounds that will start and play extremely well next season. WR and RB looks awfully deep and this is probably the most athletic group of TEs in history.

There are going to be some damn good players in this draft. Now, if Mahomes, Kizer or Watson are sitting there at 27, I'd definitely give them strong consideration (sadly, Kizer has fallen to the bottom of my list; bad feet, seemed almost disinterested at the combine), but I don't think we can justify moving significant draft capital to move up.

Hell, the 'depth' theme of this draft extends to the QBs. There's not a ton of ceiling here but there's as much mid-round talent as you'll ever see with guys like Webb, Dobbs and Peterman, not to mention guys I personally hate like Kelly and Kaaya. I'm not convinced that you're orders of magnitude more likely to get a great QB in the first this year than you are in the 3rd or 4th.
Sure, if one falls to them that they love, I'm all for it.

But if they can duplicate the last 2 drafts with this much talent, it will be instrumental in turning the cap situation around and really solidifying this thing.
