At first glance I know alot of you would say no. But let's take a deeper look at our situation. Would you rather have a Peyton Manning/Aaron Rogers and be set at the QB postion for the next 20 years, or would you rather have a great LT with a good QB for the next 2-3 years until he either gets hurt or has to retire... and then go back to the same old song and dance of searching for decades for a QB like we did before, with no one for that great LT to block for, just like Chris Samuels had happen?
There is also other options besides the draft to address the offensive line, at least in the short term until we actually get more draft picks. There's Flozell Adams, Shaun Andrews, Levi Jones, Jared Gaither, and many more.
So if I were thinking about long term success for this franchise, and Sam Bradford actually fell to our spot at #4, I would take Sam Bradford if he were there at #4 and sign Adams or trade for Gaither. This would be an idea situation because Sam could sit and learn under McNabb and by the time he's ready to play, we will have our young offensive hogs formed and ready to protect him & dominate defenses.
Of coarse there is also the option of finding another team that would mortgage the farm to trade up to our spot and get him. And with our lack of picks this season, if offered that kind of deal I'd probably do it. At the same time, it would be painful to know that you may be sacrificing your only chance to lock down the most important position (Quarterback) on the football field for the next 20 years. Not for 3 or so years, but for the next 20 years. And again, we would also need a team willing to make that kind of offer, and still have a good enough first round postion that we could still be in a spot to take someone like Trent Wililams or another great offensive tackle, or even consider Jimmy Clausen.
I'd like to consider success for the long term and not continue the same short sighted moves that make our struggle a yearly reduntant thing. And that's what I would do. What would you do if Bradford was still on the board by our pick at #4?
