My old friend, I am VERY flexable on the "who" in 2013.
As I have said many times over the years, I am not a minor-league football fan, and hence lack detailed knowledge and must rely on other sources for my college player preferences.
I'm not concerned with tghe who, per se. But the what.
1. Not a 1st Rounder. We're not in position to get one, and they cost too much for too long, and tie you to them (usually) for 3-4 full years. In a year on non-elite options, thats too much. They also, when you have nobody on the roster, engender FAR too much pressure to "play them now", the worst thing possible.
2. Must be 6'4" or bigger (prefer bigger) and meaty enough to survive the NFL (240+). Must be able to make every NFL throw required (no noodles).
3. Prefer turnover-limiting not turnover-prone.
4. Prefer 3rd Round availabillity or later.
5. Being a "project" is fine. We are not a "win in 2013" team, and if we are, it'll have to be with lolMcElroy or lolMatt Moore or the like. This pick is for our longer term, low-pressure, high-upside developmental future.
6. Absolutely, positively, must NOT be a USC QB. I'll will lierally give a power shot to anyone who says we should draft another friggin USC QB after their abject failure of the vast majority of them in recent decades.

Offer him to Arizona for a Conditional 7th round pick and offer to pay a meaningful portion of his money.
They take that in a heartbeat, I guarantee it, and we get a huge cap relief.
