I think we should do this almost every year.

In a later round we should draft a 6'3" to 6'6", 210-240 pound QB with a strong arm That would give Pat White some real competition and maybe convince him to start working on being a WR/PR/QB etc.

In the 6th round last year, QB's Mike Teel, Tom Brandstater, Keith Null and Curtis Painter were drafted and all of them made their teams.

Keith Null and Curtis Painter were still on the board for us in the 6th round when we took OT A.Gardner. And in the 7th round, 18 picks after we took linebacker JD Folsom (in a pick that once was ours) the Patriots took their WR/PR/QB in Julian Edelman.

Either Keith Null or Curtis Painter would have beaten out Pat White in a fair QB competition. And in a fair competition, Julian Edelman would have beaten him out as a "Athlete".


With Chad Henne and Tyler Thigpen we now have two players who can win games as real NFL QBs. I think we should have a 3th player who can play QB in the NFL.

It makes sense if you don't already have areas of need. That late round pick could be used to pick up someone to fill a linebacker spot or something. Not a third string quarterback. Yes, maybe next year it will be wise to do so, but not this year. Too many needs.

I wouldn't be surprised if they drafted a QB in round 6 or 7..........those picks are used on project type players......however I would like to see them get 2 guys that could start learning how to play NT with those picks......since it generally takes 2-3 seasons to really understand the technique involved in playing that in the NFL, you need to keep brining guys in and trying to develop them right?

Hey pat white fits our style. We are gonna stick with him let him get more comfortable and see what happens. They Can draft a guy or pick one one in undrafted free agents and have him on pratice squad if they want. But we have too many hole that need to be filled to use a pick on a QB.

I like the pat white pick not at the spot we got him, But think he will be just fine.

I think this year we have 3x6th and 2x7th round picks.

4 QBs who were drafted in the 6th round last year made their teams and are now playing in the NFL.

I'd prefer that Pennington stay and round out the 3 with Henne and Thigpen but if Pennington goes then IMO, we should take a flyer on someone, at least to get another arm in camp.

I think everyone agrees that the most important position in the NFL is QB, so if you are going to use a late round pick on a player, take a tall, strong armed QB.

I wont be expecting one. Didn't we kind of already draft a QB with the pick we gave KC.

It does not matter if we spent 12 picks on a QB, ATM, we only have two real NFL QBs with Henne and Thigpen. So QB is a need.

QB is almost always a need, it is the most important position on a NFL football team. If you can find a NFL QB every 3-4 years by taking one in the 6th round that is a much better use of the pick then finding a linebacker/offensive linemen every 2-3 years.

I'd like Pennington to return but I'm not sure he will.

Pat White should be on our roster only as a WR/PR like Brad Smith etc.

We had ZERO QB competition last year.

I think this year we could look at Bill Stull in the later rounds even though he is a Wannstedt product, but he was pretty efficient.

If Tim Tebow is there in the 3rd...do you take him? How about the 4th?
