Given what we saw against the Huskies I'm not that sure that Griffin will be drafted in the top 5 picks, regardless of the hype surrounding him. If we draft @ 12th (worst case) we'd only need to move ahead of #9 Miami to snag Griffin, thus it depends upon the view the team has of him and what we could convince Carolina to take to trade down to 12th. If the FO think he's the real deal then the trade down will be made w/o question.
If not, we will see more of Jackson or maybe Flynn or another we presently haven't keyed upon yet. To me I wonder if it isn't the time for the team to keep building the D and restocking the OLine than spending a lot of draft capital upon a rookie who will need to sit for at least most of a season before he is ready to try to lead the team going forward.
This may finally be the season where the team can fix the pass rush while spending more draft capital on the OLine. If we got lucky and could trade up for our 1st and 2nd I'd be happy, but I'd be happier if we snagged Flynn or another high potential and fairly young QB in FA so we could keep our early picks.
As far as the approach ultimately taken by the FO, I have confidence they know more about Flynn than most other teams. Otherwise if CBJ and TJax are their view of what the team needs I'm less confident, but somehow accept the likelihood that Jax was the best available candidate at the best price and CBJ was simply a major need and they though he might be a unrecognized diamond in the rough instead of an underachieving 3rd stringer. As it it turns out they were wrong on both guys being special and anything close to being acceptable.as the QBOTF.
