Matt Maiocco has us taking Newton # 1 overall

I wonder if Cam's better than Jimmy right now? I'd say yes but I doubt we'll take him #1.

I'm actually taking a WGAF approach. I almost want us to pull a Raiders like move being that we'll probably be stuck with the # 1 pick and take a guy that's projected to go in the 6th round.

I'm thinking, if every team passed on Tom Brady 5+ times, what if we took a Tom Brady with the #1 pick? Sure, we'll look like asses on draft day, but if it pans out, we're geniuses. If it doesn't then everyone knew the guy would suck and wasn't supposed to be taken until the 6th round... Would be awesome.

I think Cam will be fine... But, I'm just saying in general, if we take a guy that no one predicts at #1, at least we won't have to deal with the expectations and the 'is he legit or a bust?'

It's a new draft strategy I've come up with for the team picking first. Pick someone that all teams agree sucks, get rid of the expectations, and if he is good then you're pleasantly surprised.

I'd be very hesitant to say any college quarterback is better than even the worst pro QB (including Andrew Luck).

There's an adjustment that has to be made going to the pros, even for the best of them. They might be better in time, but I doubt I could ever buy that a kid who's still in college is better than a guy who's made the pro transition already.

I would not go so far as to say Clausen has made that transition. Alex Smith never did.

Is Tony Pike that bad? So bad he's not worth a mild consideration even? I agree Mr.Scot, but I'am not sold on Jimmy, but I think he need's another shot.

i can see it, especially if there is somehow a cap on rookies. Risk wont be as high financially.... number one overall is a money thing you take that away its just another pick based on talent.

Clausen has played in pro games and has had moments even if he's not great.

Stick any college kid - Newton, Luck, Gabbert, any of 'em - in the starting lineup of a pro game right now and they'd fold like an accordion.

Regarding Pike, I think we still don't know about him. You just can't reliably judge by last season.
