2014 QB Talk

65 posts in this topic

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....

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
