- Every mock has us taking a defensive player.  I think that is likely but I am beginning to think our offense has more problems than our defense.  Consequently, I would not be shocked if we went for QB or even RB!  Yeah, people will thrash me for this belief but I stand by it.  Orton does not lose any games for you but he doesn't win any either.  Here is a brief critique a friend and I talked about yesterday at lunch.  
1. Orton panics in the pocket.  He does not sense pressure often and sometiems he also overreacts to pressure.  Move up in the pocket!  Move out of the pocket!  That leads to the next point....
2. I have never seen a QB as unathletic as Orton.  The guy is super slow.
3. Orton, as a whole, makes our offense much more one dimensional than multi-dimensional.  We have so many weapons on offense that are not being used properly, i.e. Royal, Scheffler, Moreno. Orton limits our offense and he doesn't open it.  
4. We have no credible deep-ball threat.  This shortens the field and allows teams to stack against us.  
Now I suggested to my friend that we go for a QB in the second round, Colt McCoy, Tony Pike or my personal favorite, Sean Canfield, who would be around in the third.  My friend said most of the top QB's are first round picks.  He kind of convinced me that we should consider a first round QB.  What are your thoughts?
