I think they'll finish last in the NFC East and it won't necessarily be a bad thing. With Romo, Dez, and Witten gone I think they've turned over the roster from "win now" to rebuild mode.

In general, when your team picks top 5 in the draft, I'm a fan of getting a franchise QB if you don't have one (most teams in top 5 don't).

So, I'd be completely fine if we took a QB at #2.
