Lets say Emery is able to trade down in the 1st netting us an extra pick (a 3rd). Not entirely unrealistic at all since I believe interior OL is likely to be our first pick and the class looks deep there. That allows 2 OLs, a LB, and a WR or TE with the first 4 picks. Maybe then a QB in the 5th. IF there's a guy who has raw physical ability but needs a lot of coaching to polish his game. Most likely he will be a PS player in his rookie year anyway. But don't just "draft a QB because we want to draft a QB". Not unless he really has the tools (mobility, arm strength) to justify the pick. He's gonna be Cavanaugh's project anyway since I'm sure Trest is going to be devoting 95% of his attention to improving Cutler as he should.

Campbell is likely a goner and is too expensive unless he's willing to take a major pay cut (which I doubt, he will get a couple mill+ from some team I'm sure). That leaves either McCown for $1m or some other FA who's willing to sign for no more than 2-2.5 or so. I don't know who that other option might be. JMO
Campbell's 2012 cap hit: $3.5m
Moore's 2012 cap hit: $2.75m
Moore did a pretty god job filling in for Tannehill this year so I doubt he's gonna settle for less.
