Rookie QB's don't get that kind of money anymore. Mayfield makes 8 million a year. Cam is an entirely different story. He's an established guy that's been hurt/ineffective and already made his money.I am saying maybe teams should stop trying to draft franchise QBs and instead just take guys expecting that they will get 2-3 solid yrs and hope it times up with the team being good, in the long run it would be way cheaper. mayfield looks awful right now. as much as the Jags Kid looked good he lost the game with bad plays.
Maybe you wont get 16 solid games from these kids with this style of offense, So maybe you need to draft 2-3 of them and plug someone else in when its going bad like you do in other sports. instead of spending 20-30 million a yr you spend 5 and you get 3 shots at it. Allen in carolina another example. a ton of money on Cam and an over looked kid is doing better short term..
its the NE model they use everywhere but QB..
Goff was absolutely atrocious his first year, everyone wrote him off and then McVay came in and suddenly he looked like an MVP candidate. Coaching is just as important.
Minshew put up 27 points the other day. The defense lost that game more than he did. You want to wait until round 5 to pick someone I would say good luck. Tom Brady was picked 20 years ago. Every team is drafting these guys earlier and earlier each year.
