[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Let's trade for Brandon Jacobs now! : What QB at a perennial top 25 BCS conference school isn't surrounded by a ton of talent? I believe he runs in the 4.6 range, but he wouldn't be expected to be a homerun threat anyways. The guys intangibles (leadership, intelligence, toughness) are off the charts and he wouldn't be asked to start right away, so he'd have time to develop, refine his delivery, pocket skills etc. The NFL hasn't seen a player with his overall package, that could conceivably run the spread/wildcat offense at the next level on a full time basis. I'm not saying he's the guy for NE, but he's an option. As for Locker/Clausen, I'd be ok with either being chosen in round 1. How'd that Aaron Rodgers pick work out for Green Bay...........

I'd say Aaron Rodgers is going to work out pretty dang good, once they get a competent O-line.
If the Pats were to draft a QB in the next 3-4 years, i'd like to see them wait and take Ryan Mallett. Sure, it's a homer pick (I live in Arkansas), but the kid has turned a bunch of no-name, average wr's into big-time playmakers in his first few games with the team. He was solid at Michigan as a freshman, sat out a year after transferring to UA, and now has started to light up SEC defenses (excluding Alabama, nobody will light them up this year). He'll only get better as he gets more experience and I think he'll be there til he graduates. He's 6'7", pure pocket passer.. he's about as much of a runner as Brady. The guy has a cannon for an arm and has really, really good accuracy already. He'll only get better.
But, I don't think we'll need a QB for another 7-9 years so i'm not too worried about it.
Just food for thought and something to talk about. Anywho, we just need to draft a RB when a solid one comes available. Joe McKnight, Stafon Johnson (after he is fully recovered from his accident), etc. There will be plenty of them available in the next couple years.
