Went with Bortles here! Gave a lot of consideration to CJ Mosley here as well.

In the end I went with Derek Carr. I think that Carr is Turner's quarterback of choice, and he fits the mindset that Zimmer wants.

Having Bortles still on the board however, makes the choice very difficult.

Carr.

Considered Matthews as he's clearly BPA but with Carr available and us being set at OT it's a waste if you move him inside.

Went with Carr but this is one of those places I wish we could do trade backs in these scenarios.

Miami moving up for Jake Matthews here would make a lot of sense.

Gun to my head, I'd probably go with Aaron Donald or Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix. I'd greatly prefer a trade back in this scenario. Move back and grab a few picks, get a little more value on a QB. I just can't justify taking the third QB with #8 when there are other players consensusly at the top of their position.

Knew ere was one prospect that I was forgetting; Aaron Donald.

I also think that in this situation it would be nice to trade down, but went Bortles. Matthews is BPA, but hard to justify the pick since we are set at T. Bortles is next for me and plays the premier position. He is a more complete player than Carr and is "safer" Carr may fit the Turner mold better, butIi think he can develop any QB.

I said other because I didnt know what the votes situation was looking like. I would prefer to trade down and accumulate more assets if this is how the board fell

Re: Bortles vs Carr

Where does Bortles win? Where does Carr win? In terms of their overall ability

Bortles, for me, is probably the worst "top" QB prospect in terms of mechanics that I've ever evaluated. In contrast to that, his pocket presence may be the best in this draft.

Bortles is going to have to sit for two or three years, IMO.

Not an option in these scenarios.

That's what I was saying, other refers to another prospect.

If no one was trading up for the pick, who would you select. Trading back has completely been eliminated as an option.
