There will almost certainly still be some QB needy teams who don't have them on their draft board primarily due to his height. The Broncos will likely be one. Elway seems obsessed with height and arm strength.

Some teams have some archaic arbitrary minimums for certain positions. I remember reading up to last year's draft one scout saying he'd argue for Dante Jackson but he didn't meet that team's minimums for height/weight so he was off the board, end of story.

I can't remember which site I read it on but they were speculating we could see quarterbacks go 1, 2 again. Raiders trade up from 4 to 1 and take Murray. Jacksonville trades up to 2 and takes Haskins. Bosa goes 3 and Williams goes 4 to Arizona.

Yes please to as many QBs as possible going before #16.

Walterfootball was speculating that we might see a run on QB's and a bunch of trading to get in position to snag the top 3-4 guys.

That was such a damage win. We basically won the equivalent of a preseason game with neither team having anything to play for, except us in the form of draft position. We lost tons of draft capital by winning that glorified preseason game. Sean Payton probably laughed for days.

Buh... buh... buh... mah Kalil and his veteran bro'skis needed a going away win!

Not sure why people put such a big emphasis on the Underwear Olympics. It’s a show put on by the NFL to keep you interested in football. You want to know what a guy can/can’t do watch his tape. Unless of course you have questions about whether they will fit your scheme then i guess it’s important.

Its not just an NFL show.  Lots of teams have raised or dropped their grades on the performance and/or behavior of athletes at their "underwear Olympics".

Not that a kicker is an athlete in particular, but the NFL Combine is where Gettleman first saw something special in Harrison Butker and subsequently showed more interest in personal workouts and then subsequently drafted him.

All this, of course, before Ron and Marty cut him.

Kalil was known as a little smaller as well and not the big Powerful Mauler as well.  Really like the comparison

Works for me. I love Big Ten OL.

Id love him for a option at LG.

 

Van Roten was very avg at best,  jist masked by the $h!t show of a situation at LT.  We really missed Norwell.

 

So him at LG and a Bradbury at Center would be a HHUGE IMPROVEMENT

I certainly hope that we look at options to upgrade LG too. Van Roten is one of those good backup/marginal starter types.
