An interesting Heisman Finalist thought.

The four Heisman Trophy Finalists are three QB's and one WR. I'm sure everyone knows their names by now:
--- Jayden Daniels.
--- Michael Penix, Jr.
--- Bo Nix.
--- Marvin Harrison, Jr.

FWIW, I believe that QB Jayden Daniels from LSU will be the winner, but that's not what the thread is about or what my "thought" right now is. I've been thinking about how as the NFL has changed to a Quarterback dominated game it has changed how the top draft picks are used. The trend is now almost exclusively a crap-shoot which hasn't worked out well lately. It has meant that franchise after franchise has squandered a chance to build their team by an obsession with finding the right QB. In the meantime, players are passed over who might be transformative players for those teams.

This year is no exception and the Heisman Finalists give us that player, Marvin Harrison, Jr.

I'm old school and old school thinking was to take the best available player, the overall best athlete at draft time. That player, no matter what his position, will improve the team. I think that puts the Chicago Bears in an interesting position with that first pick. If I was making that pick I'd improve the team and I'd improve Justin Fields by taking Harrison. Call me crazy, but that's what I was thinking today while reading about the guys in New York. I see one can't miss WR, one might make it QB and two destined to be journeyman QB's.
