My point was that the Cardinals played this as badly as was possible. You are focusing on "what could be", but in the world of "what is" they have given away all their trade leverage and left themselves with no great options to get value for Rosen. The idea that they used back-to-back first round picks so they can have 2 QBs fight it out is ludicrous. They screwed this up. Badly.

So, I had an opportunity to read Gettleman's comments at the post-draft PC. Based on that, I think the answer is "doofus". Maybe this pick works out and they have their new franchise QB for the next 15 years, but this was a really bad decision by the Giants.
