I believe that where ever Mike Vick goes could end up shaping the draft more than is realized at this point in time.
Nfl.com says that he is drawing interest from Buffalo, Oakland, Jacksonville, and the Jets. Theoretically, Vick could start at any of those places over their current QBs. However I don't see the Jets bringing him in. The last thing they need is another QB war for their fans to squabble over. And I for one, don't think I could stand to watch anymore Jets drama on Sportscenter. I about plucked my eyeballs and sewed my ears when the tebow/sanchez battle waged on and on and on. That being said, if Geno cant get it together, Vick would be a great pickup for them to help him develop or take over, so I guess i can't rule them out.
The Bills I doubt will go for Vick cause they'll wanna see what EJ Manuel can do with a whole injury free season under his belt.
If Vick goes to either of those teams then it would be helpful to us as Oakland and Jacksonville would be put under more pressure to grab a QB
So where i'm worried, is if Vick end up signing with Oakland or Jacksonville for that starting job I know he wants, that basically takes those two teams off our trade board. Jacksonville will be cool as a cucumber sitting at 3. And Oakland knows they have so many holes to fill that they wont move up at all; content at 5 or even trading down.
Not that being stuck at the number 2 is the worst thing in the world. But if we trade down too far to 6 or 7, Watkins is sure to be gone in my opinion.
Just gotta be patient and wait for the ball to drop on this one and see where Vick lands. I hope he ends up staying in Philly.
Thanks for reading my paranoid draft delusions. Watch this awesome video I came across on the niners new backup QB I hope Kaepernick goes down injured so I can post this video every week on facebook for my niner friends to see.
Apologies if the song gets stuck in your head.
