    + another waste of a pick.

    1) We are pretty okay at doing well with low round picks
    2) low round picks are trade capital. I'd rather trade a late pick for an earlier next year pick and maybe use that pick to get a vet during the season.

    I think of all the QBs in this draft, Ridder fits the Titans mold the most. Also, his college coach Luke Fickell was on the Ohio State coaching staff with Vrabel, and they've stayed close. I can definitely see Fickell trying to sell the idea of Ridder to Vrabel and I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that we take him late in the 1st if they think he can turn into a starter in the next year or two after sitting behind Tanne.

    Brady sat his first full year and as we know, only started because of injury. Does Kurt Warner count?

    I guess it depends on what is considered a late pick? Russ was a 3rd round QB expected to be a backup. I think he just blew everyone away in training camp. Nick Foles was a 3rd. Dak and Kirk "money bags" Cousins were 4ths.

    You're right though, pretty much everyone else drafted was a bum. Not even quality backup. Including our failed attempts with Mettenberger, Luke Falk, and Old McDonald.

    San Fran traded for Steve Young to sit for a few years.

    Kirk Cousins McDuck is the only one I can think of that was drafted as a backup and ended up taking the reigns and becoming a long term starter.

    Rider is SO boom or bust. His bad traits are the same as Tannehill’s which are ball placement issues. I absolutely do not want him - which of course means we will take him at 26.
