Draft Fields/Lance/Wilson with the 1st pick. Matty is done as an elite QB.

I'll take Fields you can keep the other 2 if were picking top 5 to 10.  I don't view them as talented as other players in the top 10 at also positions of need.   Lawrence and Fields though i would be down for taking if either somehow fell to us which is highly unlikely.

Right now we are 7th if Dallas Chargers and Carolina all win one more game we guaranteed the 4th pick if we lose out 

Actually as of right now we are 5th.  Dallas and Chargers now pick after us because they have the same record after winning today and both beat us head to head.   The Panthers are the only team ahead of us picking 4th with the same record as us.

I'd rather draft an elite player at another position than take a QB.

We are way more than a QB away and are going to have a huge chunk of cap tied up in that position. Build up everything else and fill QB/RB later.

Look at all the teams who have drafted top QBs, none recently have been contenders. The Eagles won without Wentz because their defense and O-line were elite. KC was a playoff/borderline playoff team before drafting Mahomes. SF drafted Bosa and other defensive studs before grabbing Jimmy G. Meanwhile, the Jets, Bears, Cardinals and several others have drafted good QBs that can't overcome their teams pitiful circumstances or bums they have to replace.

Draft defense and O-line get your QB later. There are good ones availability every year. The better your team, the less you need to find a future hall of famer, in order to win a championship.

San Fran traded for Jimmy G. Arizona got it wrong with Rosen but a new regime got it right with Kyler. Jets and Bears didn't draft good QBs.

Take Wilson and don't look back.

They may have drafted a good QB in Murray but it has yet to lead to them being a contender and history shows that he will probably not.  

Over the last 30 year only 6 first round QBs have won a championship with the team that drafted them. Most won because they came into teams that were already competitive and just a piece or two away. Peyton Manning was probably the only one to successfully complete a true rebuild the likes of which Atlanta will need.

Wilson or any other QB in this draft is not going to help the team get better. Even if he somehow becomes a top talent, the rest of the roster will only be good enough for him to drag us to the playoffs or worse be a team perpetually picking in the mid teens/low twenties every year.

That's the same Matt Ryan purgatory we've been in for a while now. A QB that is good enough to win a title but a roster and/or coaching staff without enough talent to let him do it.

Wilson, Fields, Lance are either Daniel Jones, Sam Darnold and Dwayne Haskins' in the making or at their best Herbert, who despite playing well has lead his team to the same pathetic record as ours and may never turn that franchise around.

Get talent, draft a stud, trade back and draft a couple  do whatever you need to do to build your roster but don't waste your early pick on a QB until you're a QB away.
