Qb's in the draft.

28 posts in this topic

I suspect only 1 startable QB comes out of this draft, and guys like Mallett and Newton will set those teams back several years.

Yeah. Not one of my better posts. I guess i'm just that tired right now lol. Let me rephrase that one. We won't take a QB at all this year hahaha. Again, my apologies for that trash post.

Never back off of what you say. I happen to agree with you that we will not take a QB in the second round.

I see no QB in this draft that would help a team out this year. All look like they could bust to me. 2nd round I would pick one up, first round hell fuging no... Really IMO I think this draft will be one of the worst in NFL history. With everyone saying Damn there were so many bust that year.

We'll probably get a vet QB, or start Clausen/Moore, and then draft Luck in 2012.

Moore is a FA and not on this roster as of right now. I'm having a hard time thinking he will be signed back.

I think in any other year the now top QB prospect would have been a late 1st round pick, with only one other QB picked at the end of the 1st.

Gabbert is kinda the #1 by default but only because there are serious quesion marks next to the rest. He has got a big arm, but tends to loop a lot of his passes. Slow footwork and has little poise in the pocket. Good short accuracy, able to send the ball for miles, but isn't incredibly accurate beyond 15 yards.

Newton is all potential, so unless he kills his pro days etc I wouldn't want to invest a top 10 pick on him. Amazing athleticism, questionable pocket footwork and absolutely no experience in what he will be asked at the next level. Has never been forced to make difficult reads because teams generally did everything they could to stop him running.

Locker is an enigma, not really sure he has the accuracy or ability to read defences to warrant a high draft pick. However he is a true dual threat QB who was coached to try to get him to be a pass first QB, which worked last season, not so much this season. He has the big arm and the athleticism of Newton, but also the coaching to try to develop him as a QB. He just hasn't been as effective as Newton in either area.

Mallett is a prototypical QB, not much mobility, massive arm, decent vision and moderate reading ability. However he isn't a leader, has been in trouble with the police and early in his collegiate career showed little interest int he film room.

I hope we take Locker so I can bring out my "Got Jake?" t-shirt again.

Blaine Gabbert

he dat deal

but in all seriousness he's going to rape the combine/pro day, that's why he will be talked about. not saying they WILL take him, but he will be in the discussion

Being doubtful that we would select a QB with #1. With Gabbert, Newton, Mallet, & Locker all projected 1st rounders we will be looking at whoever is left between Andy Dalton, Ricky Stanzi, Christian Ponder, Pat Devlin, or Nick Foles to be available with our 3rd round pick. I don't want to waste a 3rd round pick on any of those guys. Although I don't think we should reach for a QB at number 1, i do believe it would be a better option than reaching for one with the 33rd pick unless Mallet or Locker happens to drop that low.
