With Fields already getting battered, and his punishing style of play, you have to keep the supply chain of backups rolling. I have no interest in veterans. Maybe you get lucky and draft a guy you can trade down the line.
So, yeah I agree with you. I've argued so many times this season/offseason that Siemien is fine as a backup next year. And I don't like the thought of intentionally going after a guy because he's mobile like Fields. Just get the best guy you can find. That being said, yeah I'd certainly draft a QB this year, probably in the 7th. No 6th and 1 of the 5ths is super early, so you're looking at either the Ravens' 5th or a trade down to get one before the 7th.
With Brock Purdy's success, I imagine experienced starters will be all the rage. So, it's really hard to figure out where some of these guys might get picked. But the Day 3 guys SHOULD be guys like:
Stetson Bennett, Georgia- who is about 5'11", but everyone knows about him
Aidan O'Connell, Purdue- who had an article written this week that he could be the best QB in the draft (LOL). But a 2-year starter
Max Duggan, TCU- probably goes higher than I'd like to take him
Jake Haener, Fresno St- started 28 games in a pass heavy offense
Malik Cunningham, Louisville- super athletic, super skinny but can run.
Myles Brennan, LSU- he sucks, but he's like the only one with any kind of size here
Tanner Morgan, Minnesota- if I had to say anyone is similar to Purdy, this would be him
Clayton Tune, Houston- decent size, decent athlete, may go higher than I'd like too
Dorian Thompson-Robinson, UCLA- similar to Cunningham in size & skillset, but probably a little better passer
Tyson Bagent, Shepherd- IDK anything about him but apparently people love his upside and he's at the Senior Bowl on Getsy's team
