Dayton Brown, @Dayton_Brown_ on Twitter asks,

Q: Should the Saints look to draft a dual threat QB in a late round for the future? 

A: Absolutely Dayton, if you look at the quarterbacks that are projected to go in the first round, in my opinion none of them are worth a first round grade. If the Saints were to select a quarterback in this draft, going later rather than sooner would be preferred in my opinion. Let me make my stance very clear, I personally don’t want the Saints to draft a quarterback this year, but if they were going to, I’d be happy if it was with their late round picks.

Ty Anania, @AnaniaTy on Twitter asks,

Q: What’s the earliest pick you’d accept spending on a QB?

A: To be honest, it depends on the risk versus reward. Right now the Saints are setting up to succeed with Drew Brees while he is around, so honestly I’m not sure it’s worth it this year taking a quarterback. I’ll say this, if all of our needs are addressed then I’m all for taking a quarterback in the later rounds. Given the circumstances with Drew Brees’ age, in any other draft the answer would generally be pretty high, but because the Saints are in win now mode, we IMO can’t afford one in the first few rounds.
