Detroit, Cleveland dont draft a QB high this year


The QBs this year may be decent but if they take other needs first they will be better suited un the long run. For a while, I have been telling people to look at the QBs coming out next season Colt McCoy, Graham Harrell, Sam Bradford, Tim Teebow as well as the potential that other above average QBs explode next season to merit a draft look. the QB crop next season is probably one of the strongest in recent memory next year with atleast 4 who would merit first rounders. this is why the Browns can trade Brady Quinn he has great trade value. This is the exact reason why the Lions shoud take jason smith as well there will be quality QBs they should draft, just not this year. No matter who Detroit decides to draft they will not turn around the team in 1 season so build the line get an early pick next season and get a good QB then. They give donte culpepper a few more years because he can manage a game and give Drew Stanton a few chances while they develop which ever QB theyd get next year, and keep building a good young OLine.

As a Packers fan i am glad the lions are not smart enough to realize this.

The Browns should draft Michael Crabtree he will be a great receiver they can trade Braylon Edwards he drops too many and is in the last year of his contract the browns will not resign him or if they really want him will go for him next season while getting trade value from him this season. there are plenty of good receivers available and they can use the extra picks to end up drafting Brian Robiskie who has great hands and is a very pro ready prospect. They need a WR here they lost their 2nd and 3rd receivers this off season by releasing joe jurevicious and will lose donte stallworth due to legal issues that will most likely keep him behind bars for a long time

It may make sense for a few teams to draft a QB this season such as the Seahawks they still have Matt Hasselbeck who is a very good QB which will give any QB drafted this season a chance to develope and learn under an elite QB while giving them a chance to later reload at WR. it would also make sense for the Jaguars because it will challenge David Garrard and with Torry Holt he should be dominant again, but should Garrard continue to not perform they could use the QB they would draft this year maybe next season or the season after to replace him.
