Pulled this from the "Sam Bradford" thread in the NFL forum.

[i]Look[/i] at this list...

[quote]Sam Bradford - Rams (1-1)
Tim Tebow - Broncos (1-25)
Jimmy Clausen - Panthers (2-48)
Colt McCoy - Browns (3-85)
Mike Kafka - Eages (4-122)
John Skelton - Cardinals (5-155)
Jonathan Crompton - Chargers (5-168)
Rusty Smith - Titans (6-176)
Dan LeFevour - Bears (6-181)
Joe Webb - Vikings (6-199)
Tony Pike - Panthers (6-204)
Levi Brown - Bills (7-209)
Sean Canfield - Saints (7-239)
Zac Robinson - Patriots (7-250)[/quote]

Good grief, that's awful :unsure:

Sad to say that in what might well be the worst quarterback draft in recent memory, we took [i]two[/i]. And XClown pointed out to me that Armanti would make [i]three[/i], if you count him.

Now, while we aren't in the market for a QB this draft with any [i]high[/i] round picks, a lower round pick could be an option. I'm wondering how people think this year's prospect list stacks up against the 2010 bunch.

I think 2013 will be a much better class. They're bad but I don't think it'll be that bad.

I think about everybody in that draft could have fallen out of round seven.

More than one expert thinks no QBs go in the first this season.

This year's QB class will be better than that one, but there isn't a guy that is going to come in and dazzle right away, like the last couple of years of QBs have done. This year's class will need to either take a year to learn offensive schemes and defensive alignments, or, could just take a while to develop into a star level QB (like Flacco.)

But, if we were actually in this draft, there's no reason not to get one of the UDFA guys. With guys like Jordan Rodgers (Aaron's brother, Vanderbilt QB), Sean Renfree (Duke, learned from the same coach who helped develop Peyton Manning), or James Vandenberg (Iowa, learned under Kirk Ferentz), there are definitely guys who could be there after the draft that could come in and be a fantastic back-up for Cam, and who we could use to trade like the Eagles did with Kolb.

Plenty of people at the time thought Tony Pike had a bright future.

There were people pre-draft wanting him to be taken with a high pick. Ditto Dan LeFevour.

The best QB in that draft(Bradford) hasn't even proven himself to be a top 12-15 QB IMO, which is unfortunate because I think he can be really good actually.. But he's been put in a worse situation (regarding the talent around him) than even cam

:lol:

2012? That could work (though I'm still a believer that 83 was better overall)

2013? Not so much.

2010? Eeeehhhh, no :unsure:
