This may not be THE year to spend a high pick on a QB, but it would be A very good year to do so.
I could imagine a number of scenarios where an offensive lineman doesn't come off the board for us in the first 3 rounds. And if we've taken excellent players who will earn snaps, we should consider that a victory.
The draft is about adding the most talented players possible to your team for the future of the franchise, and your right most fans miss this point and just want to concentrate on some need they think will get us over the top. The draft just doesn't work like that, needs are for free agency not the draft.
We have so many needs that we are destined to fill some of them in the draft. This team could literally go in there picking 18th, get the BPA for the whole draft and it would probably help this team cause whoever they pick could be justified as a need. Heck, we could even pick a WR (probably the lowest need) and fire Miles, and it would help this team long term.
This team needs a talent boost period, and QB would be a great place to start cause of the issues Romo has shown time and time again. If needs are your problem with doing that, then look at free agency but don't bring that to the draft table and expect success.
