    First and foremost, if Flores and Chad O'Shea are good evaluators they will certainly be able to see what Rosen is about based on his performance in practice and in class. Beyond that -- I'm sure they would prefer to get him some live bullet action next season but I don't see them being overly aggressive about that -- in fact I see the opposite. They're going to be conservative in the process, which IMO is also (by far) the BEST WAY to groom a young QB prospect as opposed to throwing him to the wolves.

    Rumor has it this O is very demanding on the QB -- from a mental and functional perspective. That's all the more reason to take your time (because we're NOT winning the SB this upcoming season) and allow Rosen to get really comfortable in the system and PROVE in practice he's ready for live bullets. Testing the new product too early will only accomplish a set back IMO -- and potentially damage the merchandise.

    Last, regardless of what Rosen shows or doesn't show in live action next season, that will not preclude our taking another QB in 2020. And if somehow Rosen masters the O quickly and demonstrates some serious results in the season (and I'm thinking a back-end sample of 6 games should be sufficient for that determination along with excellent, consistent practice results) we will have "significant options" for our expected high draft position.

    I'm just going to say it again -- this upcoming season is purely developmental and there's no rush to prove the process at this point. And based on what I think Rosen is all about at this point in his career -- he's NOT READY to prove he's a vaunted "franchise QB" at this point. Gotta give it some time.

    And I'm sure that "fact" bothers me as much as it bothers you. I was not pulling for the trade but now that it's done I sure hope we handle the process intelligently and don't force things.

    To hell with that. **** that mindset. We got a QB...coach him up and win. Period.

    Name our for sure starters or guys ready to contribute early. That's your answer. We have a team devoid of talent and were only able to find one, since I do not think Deiter is ready yet, person that can play early.

    Lets say the plan is Rosen, did we do enough to put him in a better situation than Arizona?

    Edit: Look at what teams like Cincy and Washington, who are in similar situations, did and compare it to what we did.

    We can't fill every position in one draft. It was a good start to a rebuild, especially if we found our starter at QB.

    I think some of you would complain no matter what they did because there were still going to be holes regardless.

    I think I should amend my earlier post. I don't mind that we traded for Rosen. What I do mind is the details of the trade.

    But it's not about filling holes. I said for-sure starter or contributor outside of Wilkins. There was no CB chosen to possibly challenge Rowe and Tankersley for the #2 CB spot, no SS to possibly supplant Reshad, no DE, no Center (Deiter may be a factor here), etc. We did better in UDFA than in the actual draft.

    A critique isn't a complaint btw.

    My point is if we drafted those positions, then the complaint would be that we didn't focus on the OL or whatever else. Can't do it all.

    Really? I think that's the most beautiful part about it.

    So, you wanted Rosen in the first last year, but you aren't happy that they traded a second for him this year? That makes no sense.

    Also, since the recouped a 2nd for next year, it essentially cost us a 4th and 5th.

    I wasn't enamoured with this draft class in the first place... Not our draft class, but the entire draft class. I think we did well with our first three picks and the ok the rest of the way. It was solid but not spectacular, and it goes without saying we need solid right now. We've tried the spectacular drafts on overall weak teams before and we've gotten nowhere. We just have too many needs to have gotten too cute in this draft. IMHO.

    How about our way sucks and if you like average why change - to do the same thing over and over again is the definition of insanity

    This draft class wasn't amazing but there was still value that we failed to get.

    We've tried spectacular drafts before? I can maybe only think of

    2016-because of the Tunsil fall, and in that draft we netted three starters with our first three picks and a decent gadget player in Jakeem.

    2012-Tannehill, Martin, Miller, Rishard, and OV were all starters.

    We've gotten no where because we haven't had the right coach and or selected the correct player in drafts.
