I'm going to ignore everyone that is proclaimed "pro-ready", Jimmy was in that category.

He was, in fact, supposed to be the most pro ready QB in the draft last year, including Sam Bradford.

NCAA history doesn't mean a whole lot in the NFL. We drafted LaFors, how was the most accurate passer in NCAA history. He lasted about a week.

Betcha $5 Harbaugh doesn't draft Tyrod Taylor in the first round, and that's even a position of need for them.

i just wonder why fans here seem content to dig around other teams scrap heaps digging through failed projects hoping to find some hidden gem. it's a futile effort and one that will keep this team on the bottom for a long time.


i'm almost done with trying to convince people we should really be drafting our own talent at QB, i mean this is the same forum that told me Josh McCown was the future here, and now for some people Billy Volek is "The guy".... he's fuging terrible, stop deluding yourselves.

naturally the one year we have the top pick and need a QB badly there isn't a good harvest of QBs to choose from. If we had a 2nd round pick it would be easier, and I'm starting to think maybe we trade Smith for a 2nd, get Green no.1 and pick Mallett or Stanzi, or Gabbert if he is there, and if we have a good QB coach to refine the mechanics and an offensive system that makes a QB produce, we're set. Either that or get one of those mind erasers from men in black and flash it in front of Clausen because he needs to forget everything he learned from Scherer this year and start over.

haha

the biggest obstacle to getting a QB IMO is where our drift pick is and the lack of a 2nd. Your scenario is possible but I kinda doubt it. Maybe we can find a trade partner, but then all the Fairley nuts would hate us for it... and Rivera could easily fall in love with Fairley.

You hit the nail on the head with why people are talking about FA QBs. We are pretty much in the worst position for drafting a QB, as although we have the pick of the bunch there are more talented players in other areas of need.

If we had 33, then we should of used that. As it is, the only way we stand a chance of getting one of the more rounded (yet still below average) QBs is trading away an existing player, which apparently can;t happen until the CBA is sorted.

However, someone moderate will drop to the 3rd, they always do. However I am unsure if a 3rd rounder is really worth it, when we can just get a placeholder this year and try again next year. It's not like this team is running out of years...

Oh and epic reference to MIB

kinda depends who ends up in the 3rd but a QB falling that far has some serious issues I think.

getting back into the 2nd round is going to be key to having a successful draft, imo. that is a much better place to draft a QB, imo. won't have to reach from there. still not loving the choices, but if we are going to draft one, i'd rather it be in the 2nd. i just wouldn't feel so bad if it's another wasted pick.

Well this draft just gone had the 3rd/4th rated Qb fall there in Colt McCoy. He showed some flash in the Browns offense.

I think with more QB friendly passing games, some less talented QBs are looking pretty good.

There aren't a huge amount of teams needing that superstar QB to start from day 1 any more so teams are focusing on other positions first. There was a run in 2008 & '09 on QBs early and most of those guys are still starting.

There are around 4-5 fairly well regarded QBs at the moment, so likely one will slip to the late 2nd or early 3rd.

I dunno I could easily see the top 4/5 going in the first round and a half, but there are some decent prospects out of those who remain, so we'll see.

I always wanted us to have a QB whose middle name was f*cking.

11 teams have a 'franchise' QB - will not pick one early
5 teams have spent a 1st rounder in the last two years - will not pick early
7 teams have a decent and consistent vet - will not pick early
1 team has a young rookie who played well - will not pick early
1 team has a young borderline QB - could pick early
1 team has an over achieving vet - likely to pick early
6 teams have no established starters - will pick early

Essentially the questions to be asked are:

* Will Miami stick with Henne another year with a new OC?
* Did Gailey think enough of Fitzpatrick to keep him as their starter?

As there are only really 6 teams that need to pick in the top two rounds, they will be safe in the knowledge that they can pick another thinner position (relative, I think the QB class is weaker but more at a similar level) in round 1, then go QB in round 2.

Since 2006 there has been an average of:
* 2.4 draft in the 1st
* 1.8 drafted in the 2nd
* 1 drafted in the 3rd

Since 2006 there has never been more than 3 QBs drafted in the 1st round and never more than 5 taken in the first 2 rounds.

So on average we should expect either the 4th or 5th best QB to be available at the top of the 3rd. There are on average 11.25 QBs picked in the draft since 2006.
