He won't last until the 3rd. Buffalo or Arizona will gobble him up in the 2nd.
I would be shocked if Arizona drafter yet another young QB in the middle rounds after getting 2 guys last year.
I don't know why people don't understand that you don't give up on developmental QB's after one year. I see no reason for them to draft another one in Ponder, who is NOT a day 1 starter.
Agreed. The Cardinals are more than likely going after a veteran free agent QB to run their offense (Alex Smith, Donovan McNabb, VY, Dennis Dixon, etc.), and use the draft to upgrade the talent on a very bad defense.
How Senior Bowl MVP Christian Ponder fares on his medical examination at next month's NFL Scouting Combine could go a long way toward determining where he goes in the draft.
Ponder experienced a number of shoulder and elbow injuries at Florida State, and is going to have to prove he's not a long-term health risk if he wants a team to take a gamble on him in the second or third round. Even if his arm is not the strongest, he has the tools to succeed in the NFL if he can stay healthy.

Ponder looked the best in the actual game, I only saw one practice and thought he was the best there also. top 3 in no real order for me is Dalton, Devlin, Ponder. I am just scared of Ponder becoming the next Chad Pennington. Everyone has already called him that and a man destined for a clipboard :/
