Note: This isn't for the Panthers but in general for the draft

 

I was looking to get a sense of what some of y'all are thinking about this QB class.  

 

The top of it is looking something like:

 

Teddy Bridgewater

 

*The Bortles

 

Tajh Boyd

 

Brett Hundley

 

Marcus Mariota

 

Aaron Murray

 

David Fales

 

Derek Carr

 

Johnny Manziel

 

So who do you like the most out of this class?  One thing is that's it's a helluva lot interesting than this past class.

 

I know Bridgewater will be the favorite and I gotta say the way he surveys, sits and steps up in the pocket is great but some of these other guys are really intriguing.  I'm a VT fan so have my reasons to hate Clemson but I gotta admit I like Tajh Boyd a lot.  Just like the way he plays.

Mariota is way too low on your list. Second or third at the worst.

interesting that you have Hogan so high. I really like him, but he struggled with pressure last night. Hogan isn't pressured much, so what I saw last night was a little concerning, but not enough to drop him out of my top five....

It's not in order or anything.  

 

I'll admit I haven't seen a ton of Mariota so didn't know where to really place him.  From what I've seen, he has an incredibly high ceiling.

 

 

I'm thinking:

 

1. Bridgewater

2. Boyd

3. Hundley

4. Mariota

 

I wouldn't sleep on Stephen Morris in Miami.  Fales and Carr are solid.  Out of the Ms of the SEC in McCarron, Manziel, Murray, Mettenberger, I'm indifferent.

I think Hogan could be the best NFL prospect, long term, out of all of the QBs that could come out this year. The guy definitely has some issues that he needs to work on, but then you consider that he has only been a starter for somewhere around 20 games, and it's mind blowing to see the kind of ability that he has. He has the intangibles, he has the arm, and he even has the mobility that can allow him to escape (think Aaron Rodgers' style movement). I believe he is going to be a very, very good QB in the NFL.

 

But, I don't know if he comes out this year or not. If he waits a year, he could possibly be the #1 QB taken in the '15 Draft, vying for the spot with Winston. Another year in college could definitely do him some good, though. Allow him to work on the things that he needs to work on.

I have a feeling everyone will be saying Mariota is the #2 or #3 guy by January. Funny that some were saying he wasn't in the top six two weeks ago. Mariota is looked at as just an athlete by many. But the strides he's made as a college QB since last year are pretty amazing, and that's coming from someone who detests all things Zeros football....

i agree i love Mariota's game.sat vs the Huskies, he made some big time throws on every level. had nice touch and zip when needed, and made some nice throws outside of the pocket and rolling out. i would like to see what he does from under the center, but considering how much he has improved as a qb, that could also be an easy transition. plus he has the speed and athleticism to escape the rush and break a 70 yarder run.

 

1. TeddyB

2. Mariota

3.Hundley/ Boyd

4. Mettenberger- huge vertical threat arm.

5. Manziel

If I was a team I would look at Michael Vick and see the same thing in Mariota. I would be afraid of Mariota's durability in the NFL. Someone that plays at 210lbs will get destroyed by an NFL LBer.
