How about a QB late?

With al the talk naturally centered on the first several rounds,1-5, and our major needs, WR, CB, OLB, ILB, OT, OG, maybe RB, there's also the need for us to bolster our QB depth. We gotta figure that Mark Bulger is looking to start somewhere else next year so it is important for the team to look for a free agent vet QB and probably a rookie developmental guy. So let's go over the possibilities shall we? Since the draft is coming first this year, let's start with that.

First, I am making the assumption that none of the first two tiers of QB's are NOT Ravens targets simply because it would entail a 1st or 2nd round pick. Probably we wouldn't even spend a third rounder on a QB either. If so then the following QB's are not on the Ravens radar: Newton, Gabbert, Locker, Mallett, Ponder, Dalton, Kaepernick, and probably Stanzi. That leaves a bunch of late round or free agent guys: Greg McElroy, Tyrod Taylor, Pat Devlin, and T. J.  Yates, seem like the most likely (but not a sure thing) to get drafted late. The list of undrafted QB's of course is long.  So who would you like to see the Ravens draft-or do you think they can pick up a decent developmental guy in free agency? Or perhaps you think we can get away with just two QB's again-Flacco and a decent vet backup?

 

Next are the veteran free agents, at least one of whom you gotta think that Ozzie already has his eye on:

Matt Moore, Todd Collins, Caleb Haine, Brady Quinn, Drew Stanton, Kellen Clemens, Bruce Gradkowski, Tyler Thigpen, and some others. No, I am not listing either Troy Smith or Kyle Boller : for both their Ravens ship has sailed and they have no chance in returning. 

So what is your overall strategy in finding one or two QB's?
