What QB to draft?

Posted February 23, 2013

Ok I'm pretty sure everyone is in agreement that the Eagles NEED to draft a QB this year if not to increase the competition in this years draft but also to try and develop a guy for maybe next year or the next. So the question is who should the Eagles take? and when? The "experts" seem to think that there might not be a QB in this years draft worthy of a first round pick. The consensus is that Geno Smith is the top of the class and many mock drafts have not only him but Matt Barkley going in the top ten. So if Kelly doesn't take Smith at #4 where do you see the best value for a QB later in the draft? I like Tyler Wilson's toughness plus he's got decent mobility could be grabbed in the 2nd. E.J. Manuel is intriguing he's got size and mobility but sometimes holds on to the ball too long. Collin Klein is a guy who could go way late in the draft or even end up as a FA. He needs some coaching but he's tough and displays good leadership. If it comes to a 6th or 7th round pick and he's there I'd be inclined to pull the trigger and grab him rather then snatch a guy who most likely will end up on the practice squad or cut.
