I think Miami executives went to see Herbert play a couple of times last year. Looks to me like they are gathering comp picks in preparation of maybe having to trade up next year. Seem to be favoured to sign Tyrod right now, fwiw.


Problem is, there's always a chance a team that genuinely needs Herbert ends up with the #1 overall and no amount of draft capital will pry him out (i.e. Andrew Luck).


You want to pry 2020 1sts from those teams. Teams like the Bengals, Redskins, Giants, Cardinals, etc.

Top four picks this year all have franchise QBs. Although true enough, some aren't acting like it.

There's also a lot of unknowns too. Foles could turn out to be complete garbage and Jags are back in it. Brady could retire, Ben could retire, injuries, etc. With what looks to be two solid prospects (haven't looked at much at the rest of the class) you could have a lot of teams fighting hard for them

Totally agree, but the only thing you can do is load up on draft capital and be prepared.

Top three picks.

I'm not sold on the Raiders believing Carr is their franchise QB.

Perhaps, but given the offensive protection (Brown) and weapons (Brown, Williams) signings, I am guessing Gruden wants to see how Carr looks like with better personnel around him. I cant see Gruden replacing Carr with a rookie QB THIS year in the off-season.

Jon Gruden has only one winning season with a quarterback under the age of 34

That season was 2005 and he started Brian Griese (30) who went 5-1, then got hurt. Chris Simms (25) came in going 6-4.

I don't know if Gruden wants a rookie quarterback.
