For better or worse he would instantly be the most famous QB we've had on day 1 since maybe Kerry, others have been journeymen at best not a franchise guy. Jake?!? eh IDK

Great reason for drafting him

He has maybe more upside than anyone in the draft, but at the same time he's really raw and is considered by basically everyone to be a huge risk.

If he flops that screws you over in several ways, #1 overall pick down the toilet, missing out on other elite talents, paying out a huge contract with nothing to show for it. Maybe worse of all is that no matter how bad he looks year 1 you're automatically going to pass on a really good looking 2012 QB class if you invest such a high pick in him.

I wouldn't totally be against taking him or anything but if they do go with him they need to scout him in every possible way, put him through every test imaginable and be pretty confident he's going to work out. Not sure I really trust Hurney's judgment on this either.

It would be no different then drafting any other player this year at #1. No one has proved that there worth the first pick.

Great reason for drafting him

I think he has a greater desire than most to win. He has clearly put a team on his shoulders and taken them to the promised land against the best players in college football. HE is a top 10 QB in the draft not a second rounder. We as a team are long overdue a first round QB, a chance to be great. I'll take that chance every time, while others may explain away another opportunity. Half the people in Charlotte were happy that we traded Kobe for Vlade.

Those are great reasons, but him being the most famous isn't a good reason.

Don't want the Cam. Really would love to see a trade down. Peterson then the DT combo of Drake Nevis and Jarvis Jenkins and i am a very happy fan.

the QB play last year was in the sewer. Cam sure seems to be the best QB talent in the draft. I am gonna be mad as a hornet if be blow this opportunity.

How long until his life turns into a gangster rap song??

I just get vibes from him and Fairley that once their bank account goes up, their skill and effort will go down.

you don't pick a player that you would have never consider if it weren't for someone else staying in school. I'm against Cam, now with that said if we draft him and he becomes a HoF super bowl winning QB I would be more then willing to eat my shorts but I doubt that would happen.

I don't get that feeling from Cam at all. Fairley, yea. Not Cam so much, he seems genuinely enamored with the game.
