Mariota?????? He is a scrub, Bridgewater is miles ahead of him same goes for Carr and Bortles

 

Mariota??????

 

Look understand the love of Spread option qbs, but Cameron Newton is a one of a kind talent, once a generation talent.

 

He is the only spread option qb I would pick in the top 5 in any draft, I would take him Luck because of his abilities and ceiling.

 

Mariota doesn't even begin to sniffs Cams batman cleats when it comes to mercurial talent

 

if you want your traditional drop back passer who can make all the reads, make all the throws, run the game at the line scrimmage, does the little things right.

 

Bridgewater is your man

 

Remember competition is not only who your playing againts it is also who you are playing with

Sounds like a Skip Bayless comment in all honesty

Mariota isn't a scrub, but he's definitely not someone I'd take over Bridgewater.

Go watch a Mariota vs. ****

and a Bridgewater vs. ****

 

Then come here and update your thread. Mariota doesn't make NFL throws, throws a lot of dinks&dunks off his back foot. And I can guarantee everyone that Bridgewater will run a faster 40 than him. Bridgewater did a lot of running in high school and some in his freshmen year at Louisville but because he's such a gifted passer and heady guy who can take advantage of average receivers they don't run him as much. I think throughout the combine process Mariota may not keep his high projection because flaws will be revealed in his footwork and passing ability. I think Bridgewater is more in the class of Winston but overlooked because he plays for Louisville. One thing about Bridgewater he's consistent the entire time he's been at louisville. Always put up similar numbers in wins or losses for 3 straight year. Never really had a bad game. His scouting report coming out of HS was uncanny accuracy. And every game he plays he'll put the ball in a spot where you'll say to yourself 'how the hell did he do that'. No franchise is gonna pass on a guy like that.

I agree with your analysis but if you were to look for someone who might have similar skills to Cam in college it might be Jeremy Johnson, a true freshmen at Auburn(Cam's alma matta). He's 6'6 230, can probably run a 4.55 and he's pure pocket passer. He's not the starter now(for obvious reason) but he played a full game when the starter was out and he makes it look easy. You'll start hearing about him soon. I think he might be the next Cam.

Just one small issue: Mariota is staying at Oregon and it is therefore now a moot point.

 

Houston getting the #1, Schaub has a huge contract and letting him go will cost huge money, Kubiak probably gone at the end of the year.... I don't see them taking a QB at #1.

That is what I am hearing and he has Gus coaching him too

It's a completely moot point now, but you're hate for Mariota is either seriously misguided, or you just started watching Mariota after he sprained his knee. Also, no chance Bridgewater touches Mariota's eventual 40 time.  LOL at you thinking all Mariota does is throw dinks and dunks off his back foot. Look if you wanted to come in here with the point that Mariota isn't asked to go through a lot of progressions when he gets the ball, or doesn't play from under center, is asked to make quick timing throws to predetermined spots on the field I might try and carry on an intelligent conversation. But instead you came with "ZOMG he does nothing but dink and dunk off his back foot, he sucks OMG ZORZ"...
