We shouldn't draft a QB this year because we have AJ Feeley on the roster. Simply put we need to see what AJ can do this year with a year under his belt and more to work with. We can't go out and spend a lot of resources on a QB who isn't a sure thing. Rodgers and Smith are both good prospects but both have their question marks and let's be honest neither are that Eli Manning type of QB that you just can't pass on. Now I know some will say that you don't pass up the opportunity to draft a franchise QB if you have it, but look at it this way: from what I hear Rodgers and Smith are not locks to be a franchise QB, they may turn into very good pros. But neither are that superstar, Eli Manning type prospect. I suggest we pass on both QBs and let Feeley have a shot at it and if he doesn't work out, maybe Frerotte can handle the duties for a year or 2. Lets face it if we give Feeley a shot and he blows it, we are looking at a very high draft pick again next year with the chance to draft a real potential franchise QB in Matt Leinart. We can get a so called safer prospect in Brown, Benson, Edwards or D. Johnson and then we'll go with Feeley as the starter. If Feeley works out then we look very smart for not wasting the pick on a position that actually wasnt a need. If Feeley flops next year than we will have the opportunity to draft a better Franchise QB prospect in Matt Leinart.
