Watson was the "bronze medal winner" in 2017.

Josh Allen was the bronze medal winner in 2018. Lamar Jackson was the 5th place finisher.
Mea culpa for my trying to be clever with the "bronze medal winner" reference but its fairly clear to me that I was misunderstood. I only meant to reinforce what CaptainCoop had said in his post. BB and staff are asking themselves which, if any, of the QBs are "franchise types" who can be at the helm for a lengthy period. Experts aside, they will have decided which QB can do this, is there a way to get him, and at what price. What I meant is that will not take a risk on anyone who does meet their requirements and that they won't move up for the QB who is rated third but does not meet the standard. Way too much risk. I think it is unlikely that BB has his stamp of approval on more than two of these guys and if they are not available, he will not move up for one of the others just because QB. OTOH, if one of those he thinks is worth the risk falls to an availability position I would expect him to jump. Whether or not he thinks Lance, Fields or Jones are one of those guys, none of us know, but if he doesn't think so, expect a trade down or a good OT at 15. BTW, Watson wasn't a bronze medal winner: he was the gold medal winner who happened to be the third QB selected.

Agree on all counts. Except Watson. Mahomes was the gold medal winner. Unless that’s what you meant.

I think a QB falls to 15. I'm not sure which one, but I can't imagine the whole NFL is as hyped about all 5 of these QBs as the media is. I'm not sure if it will be Fields, Lance, or Jones, but I think one of these QBs falls. So I would have said QB at 15 if it was an option.
Ahem.
