Just curious if we don't draft a QB in this year's draft, is there QB that might be in next year's draft that we should look at drafting?

Jayden Daniels, QB, Arizona State will prolly be top prospect..

Since we won't be drafting anywhere near the top 10 next year, we won't even be sniffing this guy. That's why this is the year to draft a future QB...

If the team isn't drafting near the top 10 why do they need to draft a QB?

Are you content with a 8-8 record with a 36 year old QB? How about 9-7 with a 37 year old QB?  We would be in draft purgatory. Not bad enough to get one of the top QB prospects and not good enough to make the playoffs. If you're fine with that, then yes why would we need to draft a QB.

Why not 12-4 or 14-2?

We can go 16-0 or rather 17-0, but the fact still remains that our quarterback like the rest of humanity is getting older. At the end of his current contract, (three more seasons) he will be 39 if we resign/extend him. There is not many truly effective 39 year old qbs minus a few exceptional examples. If Arthur Smith truly turns this thing around immediately, we expect to not even sniff a top 10 draft position in the foreseeable future, therefore it would be wise to get a QB now, and let him sit for two or even three years; similar to the Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers exchange.

You don’t NEED to draft a quarterback in the top 10 in order to grab a franchise quarterback. There are multiple examples out there. Yet over and over and over and over and over and over again, it’s stated we won’t be drafting this high for a foreseeable future, and we MUST do it now... why?

Yeah typically by pick 11 or 12, that’s it for franchise qbs. Yes, picks can fall or be overlook obviously, but is that a chance you truly want to take?

Although you make absolutely crystal clear sense, you just opened yourself to this board's wrath. My prayers are with you.

Being it’s not a NEED.. yes. 

But that is the root of the problem, isn’t it? No matter how well Matt Ryan performs, he is going to age out like everyone does eventually in the NFL. The last thing you want to be is like the Saints, banking on if Jamies Winston is the heir apparent, or the Colts that have a team ready for a deep playoff run but no QB to lead. It’s not a Need today, sure, but it will definitely be one soon. Again, at the most important  position in all of sports. Why not have your heir apparent on the roster now, so we’re not hoping and praying in two years from now.

The top projected QBs for next year are: Sam Howell, Jayden Daniels, Kedon Slovis and Spencer Rattler. But who knows how things will actually shake out

No, you got that backwards. Wilson's ability is to make defenses look stupid. Something Ryan is incapable of. 

 

Pretty sure Ryan made defenses look real stupid in College too. Seeing as how Wilson has yet to take a single snap in the NFL, im assuming that is the comparison you are making?

People have been saying that for years about several quarterbacks in the league.. yet somehow they continue to produce. 
But, you seem to be glancing over the original premise, you don’t NEED to draft one with the 4th pick. It would certainly be nice to draft that one we can develop, but it’s not a requirement for it to be with our fourth pick.

JDDirtybird 21 did you see this? A little more than anecdotal at this point.
