I don't care what Fields runs or that Lance didn't run, they are QBs. All the other stuff first. Footwork is completely coachable. I would still take Lance before Fields as it stands.

Ahh, the age old tearing down of guys.  Keep it up NFL types!  Break down Trey more and more.  Make him stick around to 8 so we can snag him 😃

Trey isn't ready to jump in feet first.  Instead, let him sit behind Bridgewater for a half a season or more.  Then let's get the machine rolling!

Nothing mentioned is KILLER.  All these QBs have flaws that need to be fixed.

Developing a QB is very, very different than developing a CB.  It's different honestly than any other position.  Those guys who can develop NFL QB's are rare, not nearly enough of them around.  I don't know if we have that guy on staff.  Joe Brady can construct a passing game, absolutely no doubt.  But that's still very different than developing a QB.

The fact that Lance is playing FCS football is already a strike.  It makes all that running he did frankly irrelevant to me.  If that's his NFL game, I don't want him.

If someone can fix those mechanics, great.  But even I could spot his flaws.  Lazy feet, inconsistent drops.  I hope our staff is better now, but we never fixed those things with our last franchise QB - also a physically talented runner - and we ruined him.  I don't want to see that ever again.

If fields runs a 4.2? He would be the fastest player in the league by a good bit and would probably go first overall after that. ????

He ran a 4.4, says he wants to be in the 4.3s for his Pro Day. 4.2 isn’t happening.

Lance is the number 4 QB in this draft.  He is a project QB and will need time. Usually these QBs go in the bottom half of the first round.  I am not big at taking him at 8, but we might have to because of the demand on QB.  In actuality I hope he is gone by 8 so we can dodge this bullet and get BPA at a position of need. There is a lot of teir 1 talent that can have an immediate impact on this team.

Dan orlovsky forgets he was terrible in the NFL. He acts like he is a hall of famer 

Dude isn't much better as an analyst, he thinks Carson Wentz is HOFer. lol

    • I think there's a lot of truth here, but I will say something that may not be popular. I think Cam was a good QB that had could have been great. The GM never did enough to protect his blind side, but Cam never did enough to consistently fix his weaknesses as far as inconsistent mechanics, holding on to the ball too long, and simply consistent solid decision making. I don't know how much of the blame goes to the GM and unimaginative, old school OCs and an an HC, and how much of the blame was Cam's. But, it was a combination. Hell, they even drafted twin towers to help Cam out, but then they never got him an exclamation point at LT. Cam had great moments here--piercing that skin of the elite, but he never completely punched through. And, he is running out of time to get it done. I think this season will be his last opportunity (and I am rooting for him, unless we somehow get in the way).  I say all this because Luke was truly a great MLB. His elite play and consistency was rock solid! I think Luke was a greater LB than Cam has been a QB. I will admit that it's more difficult to be a great QB, but I don't believe that Cam and Luke should always be necessarily linked as the the main reasons why we were semi-successful during the Rivera era. I believe that Cam was an imperfect cracked wooden crutch that also held us back in some respects, while Luke was made of strong aluminum alloy that we could always depend on to get the job done. Just an observation and attempt at an objective opinion based over a period of time. It's my take and I'm sticking to it.
    • Seeing Brandon Beane in the top 5 of GM's that are drafting makes me die inside. fug JR, Bean would have been amazing here. Sigh. 
    • I mean it's the same for any of these professional talking head analysts.  Jeremiah, Brooks etc would all fail as GMs. That's why they're talking heads rather than in actual Front Offices.
