Where do you draft Michael VIck next year?
He's back for another year of Chip Kelly madness! Do you draft him at all, or do you let him sit and try to pick him up FA?

    It's way too early to say as there's still a fair chance that he won't even be the starter at the beginning of the regular season. However, if he does beat out Foles and anyone else Chip Kelly brings in, then you have to consider drafting him at least as your backup QB. I would say his upside would be as one of the first QB's taken, but the risk of injury or failure in the new offense is so great that you have to drop him quite a bit. If he's still there in the 5th or 6th round I'd probably pick him up, but I would want to pair him with a safer QB option so I'd have something to fall back on.

    I like Kacee's reasoning, but I'll bet he's still there in the 7th round. Too many turnovers. Philly may trade him yet

    I don't unless in a Very deep league!! Maybe in a league where u play 2 Qb's, I would have him at 3rd qb option then.. If they made a drastic change to that O-line then maybe around 7th round.

    I wouldn't draft him before the second to last round unless I knew he was the starter. Even if he's the starter though, he wouldn't be in the top 12 to 15 consideration for me.

    The upside is there, no doubt. What needs to be taken into consideration is that he has not only come off of back-2-back poor seasons, he hasn't been able to stay healthy. Yes, his two years in prison make him a young 32, however, he's still 32. And he's learning a new system where there are certain to be growing pains for not only himself, but the players around him. He's easily ranked behind Brees, Brady, both Manning brothers, RG3, Newton, Stafford, Romo, Rodgers, Ryan, Wilson, and Kaepernick, which makes him, at best, the 13th best QB on the board. He's a backup QB, albeit with a high-upside. Let's say 9th round as an intriguing backup OR 7th round when paired with a safer backup QB like a Roethlisberger or a Dalton.

    I'd still keep him behind Roethlisberger, Dalton, and also Luck, potentially Alex Smith if he finds a good team, and maybe even Schaub if he can get some more help for Johnson and Daniels. Just my opinion though.
