If you think you're getting good value with Jones, then you cannot look at it as spending a 4th round pick on a 3rd string QB. You look at it as a guy who is going to be Ben's primary back-up sooner than later. Who cares that Gradkowski signed a 3-year contract? He's gritty, gutsy, and a guy I'd like to have on our team, but there is a reason he's bounced around the league like he's made of flubber. This is a critical position and given Ben's injury history, we need to make sure we have a guy who can step in and lead this team to victories.

At this stage, I'm pretty much taking the opposite view and hating on the player; not the pick or position.
"I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.
