I still think we ride with him in 2018 and draft a QB in the first 3 rounds, depending on how things play out.
This is where I struggle mightily. On one hand I'm glad Miami has a top 15 QB who gives you a chance to win on most Sundays. I'll take that over knowing 5 or 6 wins is the ceiling any day of the week.
On the other hand I don't want to be Cincy or Baltimore where the playoffs are good enough, or I need to make sure my defense and supporting cast is really good. Its easier to build those than it is to find an elite QB, that much I'll grant you. But New Orleans, who have wasted years of Brees's talent, now have a shot at the Super Bowl because Brees is on the roster.
So I look at the draft and I see 3 QBs who have elite potential (Darnold, Rosen, Mayfield), 3 QBs who can start some day but not necessarily upgrades (Jackson, Allen, Rudolph) and a bunch of projects and NFL backups (I think Falk could start in the right system).
Do I sell out for a guy who comes in with more upside than Tannehill? Should I call up Cleveland and say I'll give you Tannehill, the 11th pick and a 2019 pick for the rights to Darnold while signing a McCown type? Should I offer them Tannehill and the 11th pick (assuming they take Darnold but want a vet for 2018) for the 4th pick and the rights to Mayfield? (for the record I want no part of Rosen)
Or do I spend my 3rd Rounder on Rudolph and give Tannehill another year or two knowing a lot of other things need to fall into place to be a contender (not just a wild card team)?
I could be swayed in either direction right now.
