i mentioned Mettenberger on page 1 in my top 5, but Murray is also a decent prospect which should be a 2nd or 3rd rounder.

Sorry. Missed it.

My worries about Mettenberger relate to his unfortunate similarities to another four-syllable 'Berger' (both good and bad).

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.

 

 

Mariota is NOTHING like Vick. Have you even seen him play? He's already a better passer then Vick has ever been and he's only 19 years old! Being that he's only 19 and the son of a rather large Samoan, I'm guessing he wont stay 210 pounds for very long. Also, Mariota knows how to slide and get out of bounds.

his arm is very comparable. i also heard about his off field actions which is as like Ben, but he doesnt seem to have the pocket awareness of Ben. but he might have the best arm in the draft.Mariota arm is pretty good too.

that is a bad comparison. Mariota is 6'4 which means his body can pack on extra weight and he has better decision making/arm then Vick coming out of college. if you can, please watch the game from saturday vs Washington and you will see why some think he may pass TeddyB and be the 1st QB taken.

 

here is his cutups from draftbreakdown.com which is a great site.

The longer I go, the less interested I get in how far they can throw and the more intrigued I am by how accurately they can throw.

 

That's not to say I want a weak armed guy though.  I'm not ready to go WCO.

...so you're saying you like Murray?

 

He's got an above avg arm (nothing great) with great accuracy.  They give em' crap for being 6'1 but that's not that short.  

 

I like the kid.  Athletic and accurate.

Can Jameis Winston just be the #1 pick already so we can get it over with?

 

Bridgewater is money though, he will be a taller version of Russ Wilson in the NFL.

One QB I've got my eye on for the future is the true freshman at Penn St, Christian Hackenberg.  I think that guy is going to be GREAT in the NFL.  I'm certain he will be a Top 5 whenever he comes out.

What do y'all think of Logan Thomas?  Me: I think he has all the tools in the world but just doesn't seem like a true-QB.  He's way too inaccurate.

his last couple of weeks has been pretty good. he has the tools to be very good, but must work on his reads and footwork.
