I think from your comments As why I LIKE Love and not falling head over heels
AND why I would be highly reluctant to trade ANYTHING to move up and get him
I see substantially less holes in Herbert, Tua, and Burrows
IMHO, all 3 of these (still health question on Tua) SHOULD start day ONE and play well
Thats why Iam willing to trade up to get one of these 3
Love has Great potential...... but There is no way that He is ready, day one
I would agree with that. The players that tend to pick for a QB are the receivers and the Tight ends. Rightfully so, because they are dependent on a QB to get them the ball. But in the end, alot of players go where they can or where they can get paid.
Look over some of the big time free agents over the last few years.
Ebron- Signed with colts to play with Luck
2017- Jeremy Maclin- Signed with Baltimore- Joe Flacco (Not Lamar)
2017 Pierre Garcon- Signed with 49ers- QB was CJ Bethard (traded for Jimmy G that year)
2017 Kenny Stills- Signed with Dolphins- Ryan Tannehill
2018 Allen Robinson- Signed with Bears- Mitch Trubisky
there are many more like those, players go where they want to go. Sometimes QB matters, but sometimes it doesn't.
If Ballard is willing/wanting to draft Gordon at 34 then it'd behoove him to trade with whoever will own the 32nd pick to be able to have a 5th year option on Gordon. Similar to what the Ravens did when they traded back into the 1st round to get Lamar a few years ago.
