Wait? What? This doesn't make any sense. Teams draft backup QBs outside of the first two rounds every year.
What adequate backup QBs are available in free agency? Mike Glennon got 15 million. Osweiler got more than that. Hoyer got a sizable payday.
Everyone wants to complain about the backup QB being bad. Why can't we have someone like AJ Mccaron. Then the team drafts one and that's the wrong move as well?
Jones is simply not good enough. He can not run the offense and is the single biggest factor in 1-3 losses per season. How is using a low fourth round pick to potentially overcome that a bad idea?

Makes perfect sense. Teams draft back up quarterbacks all the time. I can't think of an occasion when a team that has an established back up drafts a guy for the purpose of developing him into a back up. Dobbs is a back up to the back up.
It doesn't matter who is available now as a back up, because the Steelers don't need a back up; they already have one. However, if you want to deal in hypotheticals, Ryan Fitzpatrick would have been a solid signing. They simply could have kept Zach Mettenberger.
What is ridiculous is all the Landry Jones hate. He is the back up, as evidence by the contract he received. He's only appeared in 16 games, starting 4. They won two of those games. How can he be held responsible for 1-3 losses a year?
Using a 4th round pick to select a QB whose ceiling is being a backup, when they could have selected any number of players that could be contributors this year, most notably George Kittle, is more than a bad idea.
