Really? It's not not to win the highest honor in college sports being named the best player that year.

You aren't realistic at all actually

Besides Cam

 

When was the last Heisman winning qb to do jackshit in the league?

The guy I'd worry about busting the most is Blake Bortles. I really don't understand the hype, sure you see a 6'5" 235lbs prototype QB who put up decent numbers at UCF passing and somehow became a scrambler near the end of the year but some of the comparisons "professional" analysts are making seem to be absurd to me. My favorite comparison is to Ben Roethlisberger, Bortles has half the arm Ben has and most of those "scrambles" he got away with in college would end up with him getting speared by Suh. 

 

The best QB in the draft will be Teddy Bridgewater followed by Manziel if he gets in the right system behind a good OL and a talented WR. I hated Manziel at first when projecting him a couple months back but I believe it's less dependent on talent, which I think he has tons, and more dependent on coaching and teammate talent on offense. He's going to be a hard bust if you expect him to take control of an offense like Cam but if you let him do what he's best at, you'll get a playmaker. I think Bridgewater has been underrated due to a bad pro day. I look at his tape and to me he goes through progressions better than any other QB in the draft, fragility is my biggest worry with him.

 

Overall I think it matters less about which QB and more about the situation.

Gruden somehow got me on the Derek Carr bandwagon. I think he'll end up being the best QB in this class.

Very reasonable assessment and I agree with you on all accounts

Carr is horrendous when pressured

I feel that way too. I think Bortles is going to be really, really good eventually, and that jimmy garoppolo is going to be better than bridgewater or Manziel.

Smell a whole lotta bullshit in this statement

 

Carr will be garbage for the reason I have explained

 

Bortles is meh, just a "good" arm nothing great and decision making is lacking

 

Garopollo is Blaine Gabbert 2.0

 

I would take Manziel over all except MAYBE Bortles and Bridgewater is by far and away the best of the bunch

Why? David got completely broken and ruined behind that oline in Houston, Derek certainly isn't that yet. At the very least, he's not in denial about his need to improve in that area. He seems like he has a good work ethic, a good head on his shoulders, and great arm talent. Tom Brady ain't so great under pressure either. All these quarterbacks have plenty of flaws.

ok

You must have missed the USC game when Carr folded like a lawn chair after a few early hits

 

Or the numerous phantom folds that seem to possess Jimmy G

 

Or even the questionable decision making on the part of Bortles

 

Granted Bortles has great pocket presence which I like, Critical for success
