-4th or 5th rounder
-Likes us

Assuming we take care of our immediate needs, this could be an option given he goes later than sooner in the 4th/5th

I think in this QB starved league, I'd be surprised to see Manuel last past the 3rd round.

I have an idea. Why don't we drug Geno Smith and have him set up in a penthouse with hookers, underage kids and stolen property. Then we can pick him up as a UDFA!

This.

With the hype around the read/option and the success of rookies over the last two years, teams are going to keep reaching for the next big thing... He won't last past the 3rd.

He's a second rounder, believe it.

Even if he does last into the 4th round, with a lack of a 3rd rounder, are we really in a position to be using a pick just outside the top 100 (Rd 4, Pick 105) on a backup QB? It's generally agreed that we'll draft some combination of OT/DT/WR with our top two picks, I can't see us taking a backup QB with our third. In fact, I think our top three picks will be some combo of O-Line/DT/WR.

eagles and jags are looking at him already at the senior bowl so no.

he might do decent....remember when everyone said wilson was too short and colin could do nothing but run. you never know.....and with running qbs gettin popular that makes it harder to get him... hes like the only guy who can run as a qb this year.......

Why should we use a high pick on a QB when we could get a potential starter?

I'll say it again sign Dennis Dixon off of the Ravens PS

Yea i liked dennis dixon when he was at oregon... EJ i could see going earlier and the only issue would be our need for other positions.
