You keep throwing Patrick our there. But Patrick wasn't selected at a tremendous position of need. He was going to be nickel at best his rookie season. The Saints thought that they were getting a player with potential who could develop into a starter. Sound familiar to what the Saints would be doing for Wilson?

The bottom line is that the draft is a crap shoot. Players bust. Even BPAs bust...all the time. But drafting someone who you know will ride your bench for the next three years is unwise.

But it's DB vs QB.

You need 4 (ABSOLUTE MINIMUM) healthy DBs to field a team, 6 would be much, much better, 7-8 would be ideal.

You only need 1 healthy QB to field a team.

Patrick was drafted, KNOWING that he would be seeing the field soon, if not immediately.

Why spend an early pick on a QB who won't see the field for quite a few years, when we have other holes all over this team? Especially in a draft as deep as this one. The top end is a bit weak, but the depth is fantastic this year.
