I understand why Quinn was traded for a sixth rounder, he has not won and he has showed some weaknesses (really what are the Browns doing though?)
I have been actually trying to make two comparisons, I realize I got there in a convoluted way.
Quinn NOW v. Bradford/Clausen NOW
Quinn THEN (when he was drafted) v. Bradford/Clausen NOW
There are many ways you can look at this, I suppose it would also be necessary to compare Quinn NOW v. Bradford/Clausen in three years, but that like much of the other talk is a guess.
On the first I just don't see that big a gap in talent to warrant five rounds or so difference in the actual compensation.
On the second, I think that Bradford/Clausen are similar prospects to Quinn when he was drafted with a few differences...so in my mind the result might be the same, and we might be in the same position of Cleveland is now (and while I have not given up on Brady, if this is the case its far less of a gamble to give up a fifth or so then the 1st overall pick)
However, I will admit that I'm not too down on Quinn after the whole Cleveland debacle, not high on Clausen, and just plain not sure/skeptical on Bradford.
