Selecting a QB between picks 7-11 is almost certainly not going to produce a starter? I think you need to show your work here. In the last few years alone we have seen Allen, Mahomes, and Watson picked in this range off the top of my head.Of course it's less risky, it's also almost certainly not going to produce a starter. The hit rate after the first round drops off a cliff, even with Bill picking the odds of getting a consistent starter out of 10-11 (or even 7-8) are in the low single digits.
This is not exclusively a draft thread, it's about QB options for the Pats. For those who don't believe in trading up or don't believe Bill will do it, what's the QB plan? After not getting one this year, what's the plan next year, hope we lost enough games in 21 to draft higher? Go after one of the rebuilding projects we avoided this year? Try again for Jimmy G?
