    With Sparano out the door it is highly likely that his baby Henne will be sent packing as well so who drafts a QB that is ahead of the phins?

    Bills, Cardinals, Redskins, 49erss, Vikings, Seahawks

    So that about wipes the Qbs off the board - Luck, Locker, Mallet, Newton

    Any thoughts?

    I don't know if those teams will take Newton, or Mallet for that matter... or Locker. We have a decent draft spot to nab one of them if they so choose.

    Luck will be gone - probably to Carolina, if not there, then definitely Buffalo.

    AZ may take Mallet or Locker...depending on combine, tests, workouts, interviews, etc... If they pass then SF will take one as may the Vikings.

    If Blaine Gabbert comes out he'll go in the first round as well.

    Mallet will be exposed when teams watch film and we should not want anything to do with him. Locker might not even go in the first round. Newton will climb (thankfully out of our range). I could see a scenerio where we trade down to the late first round and get stuck with a Mallet. It all depends on who are coach is, our GM is and what offensive philosophy we will be adopting.

    In the end, it's way too soon to guess. The combine will change a lot of thoughts. Remember, Phil Rivers was a 2nd round pick before the combine and went top 5.

    Yeah, I know this is exciting stuff to talk about but it's really hard to gauge anything right now. You have to wait until the combine and even free agency to even have a guess at what teams may do.

    I know this is a minor point but I like Detroit QB Sean Hill who picked us apart a few weeks ago, and the best part is; he is now a free agent if my info is current.

    doubt if the Bills will be drafting a QB
    move up in the draft & get the best QB prospect possible

    Same here, if Orton and Palmer are not options then Hill will do.

    As for who will take a Qb ahead of us:

    -Carolina
    -SFran is a good bet
    -Hearing Cards may make a run at Kolb.
    -Vikings

    The other problem is at #15 we can easily be passed by a team that wishes to move past us, when we moved back from #12 it only cost SD a #2 pick, if a team has a real strong conviction on a player they could pass us easily.

    Peter King says Luck is staying at Stanford, so unless we trade up forget about drafting a QB in the first round.

    At 15 Miami can make it happen , they may have to maove up , but so be it. Time to get the QB this franchise has needed for far too long.

    Be assertive , be bold , the right QB is worth it , at 15 , with the depth of this top QB class , this may be the least expensive option we have for a long time imo.

    That can another of the things Peter King can be wrong about then.

    Speculation at this point , highly doubt Luck even knows as an absolute right now.

    This regime has pretty much ****ed us.Henne stinks,with the 15 pick we are not going to be able land a decent qb in this draft unless we get lucky like new england and what are the chances of that happening.We are now going to be stuck with henne or palmer and this at best will get us a 8-10 win team and no real shot at truly competing.I said this when it happpened and I am saying it again when you have a chance to grab a franchise qb you go for broke and take him.But no they go for the safe pick and take a left tackle just like going for the field goal instead of the touchdown.
    I have no idea how this coach or the next is going to get that qb without going at least going 3-13 or worse.

    I love all the idea's to move up in the draft. Its a great idea...

    The only problem... how do we do it? Without a second rounder... Going to be awfully tough... Love to hear some idea's how that gets done :lol:

    :pity:

    Carolina (2-14) Qb
    Denver (4-12) DE
    Buffalo (4-12) DE
    Cincinnati (4-12) QB/Wr
    Arizona (5-11) Cb
    Cleveland (5-11) Wr
    San Francisco (6-10) Qb
    Tennessee (6-10) ????
    Dallas (6-10) ???
    Washington (6-10) Defense/Wr/Qb
    Houston (6-10) Defense
    Minnesota (6-10) Qb
    Detroit (6-10) ???
    St. Louis (7-9) Wr
    Miami (7-9)

    Well, that is 5 teams that legitimately could go Qb, 5 teams that could go DE/CB/Lb and 4 teams that could go Wr and a maybe 2 teams that could go in any direction, so to me it looks like we will have no real shot at a Qb at #15, and we also probably miss out on the Elite Wr talent like Green and Blackmon,

    We would have the pick of Tackles, Te's, and probably Running Backs and Offensive lineman but you could see the Lions going with a left tackle.

    What I would dearly love is a FS/ILB/Tackle or Center or G, maybe running back.

    Cant see Luck staying...he will be 1st overall or top 3 at least.
    We pick before Seattle and Oakland, so that will not effect our pick.
    AZ will make a run for Kolb or a current NFL QB, not through the draft.

    I would be OK with Mallet...not having a 2nd rounder will handicap our chances of moving up too high...

    Sad that 5 days before wild card weekend we are talking about the draft....again...ugh

    If Harbaugh leaves Luck is going as well.

    I did not know Gabbert declared. In my opinion we should do whatever it takes to get up into the top 5 and get a quarterback. when you look at how this team is currently constructed I don't see any major needs that will be screaming to be addressed in the next few years with the exception of quarterback.

    The defense is young and ascending. Yes, we need a thumper next to Dansby, a playmaking safety (maybe Jones can evolve into that) and another pass rusher but other than that, it is a VERY serviceable unit as it stands right now. If we resign Big Paul we are set on the Dline. The linebackers are good and we appear set at corner for years. the spots that need to be aided on defense can be fixed via free agency and later rounds AND we have guys that are alright. The defense will not hold us back.

    The offense is another issue BUT we have pieces. We are good at receiver and left tackle. No worries there. The interior offensive line is a disaster but drafting a guard at #15 is not sending us to the playoffs, we can find guards. A tight end would be nice and some speed. We need running backs but I don't want one in the first round.

    I'd trade our first this year, our third this year and our first next year to move up into the top 5. Target teams that appear from afar to not be looking quarterback. I can't see Denver (#2) picking a quarterback in the first round. Cincy (#4) MIGHT (and if they do that opens up Carson Palmer as trade bait). Cleveland (#6) seems pretty happy with McCoy. Carolina, Buffalo and Arizona are targeting quarterbacks without doubt. If we REALLY want a guy we have to jump to #2. Denver has needs all over the place and might want to grab extra picks. There are openings to move up, the only question is do we have the ammo (we don't unless we start throwing future #1's into the discussion) and the will to sink a LOT of our future into one player.

    For Luck or Gabbert I'd sell the farm but after that, there is nothing there that we can't get at our normal spot. If Luck comes out we might have a shot but if he stays in school that changes everything.

    Why does everyone think Luck will go to Carolina. They have Clausen and Pike don't they? Too much to keep investing in the QB position Cap/Sense wise.

    I'm thinking the exact same thing. Whatever is neccessary to land Luck or Gabbert.

    We're missing game changing speed at RB and WR. If the QB's are gone,is there a player at the 15 spot that would fit the "speed" mold?
