Great points. But here's the issue. Its Garrapalo that's QBing them to the SB, not the guy they took to develop in round 3. Cousins is also in the same mold as JG. They were both taken in rounds later than 1 who happened to work out....and weren't apparently good enough for their old teams to still want them (I know NE had Brady).
They are both probably second tier guys. And the developmental QB we take in round 3 will probably be just like them.
So, the question is, do you want a franchise QB to build around, or a full roster led by a QB that isn't quite franchise quality. IMO, after winning one SB in 20 years with PM and AL and a marginal defense, I definitely do not want to spend the capital on a franchise QB. Having said that, taking a QB with a mid first round pick like #13 isn't really a lot of capital compared to PM and AL, or a trade up for a Mahomes or a Darnold/Allen.
What’s with the obsession of kicking Smith inside to guard? He’s fine at RT. The position we would need Conklin to play is LT. If you wanna look at an offensive lineman that could be upgraded, it’s Glowinski.
Here is the review on the QBs from Kyle Crabbs from the Draft Network:
