Donks need to trade up and draft a QB


Today's NFL requires a franchise QB to be successful. The longer you go without finding one, the longer it takes to be successful.

I don't believe the argument that Lock needs more time. He is the exact same QB that he was in college ... streaky and inaccurate. I think Lock plays football because he is good at it, not because he loves it and has too many physical and mental deficiencies to overcome for a guy not interested in "living" football.

Donkeys have a pretty good team sans the QB position ... need to draft a ILB and need better performance from the Center and RT positions. Obviously need to stay healthy as well.

Interesting fact. QB's taken after the 15th pick in the 1st round have less than a 1 in 6 (16%) of starting more than 50 games or 3 years in the NFL. QB's taken in the top 10 of the draft start at least 50 games something like 75% of the time. Lock was a late 2nd round draft pick that appears to be one of the 83% that don't make it as a starter.
