I will agree that it’s not a deep class. Once you get past five or six there isn’t much there. It’s not smart for Ballard to pass on a QB if he is sold and just say wait until next year. What if we are drafting lower and don’t have that extra high pick like this year.This is the year to draft a QB if he is sold on one this year. Every year he delays it.the core of the team is getting older. By getting one this year they would be ready in 2021. Wait until next year your probably wasting another year.
ESPN recently had a story with the anonymous viewpoints of about 10-12 GMs. A premium story so most here didn’t see it.
The view was this is not a great class of QBs. It’s not a terrible class, but last years was much better. And so was the 18 class as well. This year, with what looks like only one sure Day One starter and the rest likely needing a redshirt year... not so much.
No fans know what next years draft is like. But NFL scouts do. A year ago scouts had already pegged the 2020 wide receiver draft class as near historically good. And they said offense was better than defense.
All 32 teams have a feel for next year already. Part of the job. Sometimes it helps make decisions about the current year easier to make.
