NFL Quarterback Gold Rush 2.0: To Draft or Not To Draft, That Is the Question

Previously I wrote this article on how many teams were in dire need of a starting quarter back:

When Luck decided to stay in college there wasn't a clear cut top 5 QB in the draft anymore and commentators and draftnicks have the top 5 QBs floating all over the 1st. round - including myself.

At the same time the free agent pool of starting caliber QBs is very small - but loaded with potential, but risky, starting QBs.

Few teams want to trade a starting caliber QB, like Kyle Orton in Denver or Kevin Kolb in Philadelphia.

This off season there will be a huge rush from QB hungry teams and although we have 4 potential 1st round QBs in the draft, I think its fair to say that this is a sellers market.

Depending on how the QBs perform at the combine and at their pro day - we could see heavy trading come draft day as teams position themselves to land their guy.

Finally I haven't even taken into consideration that we won't have a CBA - that would confuse matters even more leaving teams with no other option but to draft a QB.
