QB v. #9 #40

Most teams in the NFL need a franchise QB, especially the top 8 picks (the Broncos probably feel okay, although I don't know why).

The story emerging in the mocks, is that Cam and Gabbert will be picked very early, perhaps in the top 3. I would expect Denver to trade down with AZ, SF, anyone, as we watch the top 2 QBs candidates go 1-2 off the board.

By the #40 pick even Mallet, Locker, Ponder and Kaepernick should be gone, leaving a better selection of OL or DL prospects for the Cowboys (note: FA safety please).

Why? Look at history. It's very hard to find a good QB and you HAVE to pick early and you HAVE to bypass better prospects at other positions to give your franchise a chance. Despite that, note how few panned out ...

2003: 1 Palmer 7 Leftwich FA Romo

2004: 1 Manning 4 Rivers 11 Roethlesberger 90 Schaub

2005: 1 Smith 24 Rodgers 25 Campbell 106 Orton 213 Anderson 230 Cassell 256 Fitzpatrick

2006: 2 Young 10 Leinart 11 Cutler

2007: 1 Russell 22 Quinn 36 Kolb

2008: 3 Ryan 18 Flacco

2009: 1 Stafford 5 Sanchez 17 Freeman 101 McGee

2010: 1 Bradford 25 Tebow

As inferior as some of the upcoming QB are to the likes of Rodgers or Romo today, why can't they grow into a starring role? And if you don't like this year's selections, then how long can you wait? The cost will never be cheaper.

So as odd as it sounds, someone may be offering to swap first round picks with the Cowboys for the opportunity to grab the #3 QB prospect at pick #9. What's it worth to the Cowboys?
