Draft grades are just relative, IMO, very much like the trade value chart, a reference but not a rigid line.


Kelvin Hayden was a 5th rounder, we got him in round 2. Marlin Jackson was a 2nd rounder, we got him at the end of round 1. I can cite many more examples from Polian's era, and I am sure other fans of other teams can do the same from their team's history. Pick No.22 is closer to the end of the 1st, so a top of the 2nd round rated QB going at the end of round 1 is really not a biggie, IMO. 


For a team to move up to No.12 suggests that they are serious about getting a QB, especially after giving up a QB that took them to the playoffs, suggesting their roster is talented enough with an average QB to get to the playoffs. That is why I think Buffalo will come out of the draft with a QB. 


Great show reference though. :) 

I agree they are trying to land their next franchise QB and I think they will do what they can to move up.  But I don't think they will just be throwing compensation out the window.  The reality is, they need 4 new starters along the offensice line.  Outside of Dion Dawkins, they've played moneyball patching it up with Russel Bodine being the only notable FA signing and they paid him enough to make him the 28th highest paid Center.  Marshall Newhouse was an even cheaper buy, almost league minimum.  And then Eric Wood and Richie Incognito retired.


All of this is to say that they will try to take a QB if it can happen at a reasonable price.  But what they aren't going to do is trade away 2 firsts or even 1 first and 2 seconds, leave holes on the roster the way it is now, particularly at offensive line and linebacker (I really wish Roquan would've fallen to 12, I actually tried to trade up a few spots to get him).  It's a great draft for interior OL and they would be insane to use up all the draft resources just to take a QB and then not protect him and get him killed in his first year making him a shakier projection than if he had a redshirt season.


In retrospect, I might go back on my thinking that he's more of a second round guy.  I agree with you in that quarterbacks are almost always reached for when they are guys touted as fringe first to early second round guys.  Talking about him yesterday made me flag him as a prospect to watch film on which I've been doing a little bit today and after work yesterday.  I think he might be better than some of the scouting reports suggest, at probably worth the #22.  I still say that might be a small reach so if they can drop back 4 or 5 spots and take him, then you've just maximized draft value.  The Steelers is an ideal place for him to land and probably where his value exceeds the value of the pick.  Lamar would benefit greatly with a redshirt rookie season, and he will surely get that with the Steelers.

How much longer does @csmopar have


I will give him till 12 noon. I have also sent him a PM. We can start consensus at 12:15 pm if he does not respond. He typically logs in frequently during the day, so I am sure that amount of time should work for him.
