wow. if this is not a telling sign of no good QB's from that program, i don't know what is.
did all of those guys pass through the the same system?

I see your point, but it shouldn't really matter to be honest. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes.

Can you list all the QBs from Tennessee, Michigan, Purdue, North Carolina and Cal....just for starters.
I've been on since the beginning and I'm staying on. Ponder in the 2nd/3rd.
This kid is the real deal, he graduated from FSU with a finance degree & 3.72 gpa. Impressed yet?? Well he did all that 2 '1/2 years.

His skill set and intelligence remind me a lot of Steve Young. I predict his stock will rise, id be thrilled if the 49ers got him in round 2 but they may need to trade up.
My opinion on Ponder has changed a bit for the better but I still wouldnt take him until the 3rd.

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.

So be it. Don't wanna reach on him. If he falls then fine, if not we'll survive.

Also, I don't think many thought Colt McCoy would fall like he did last year.
QB's are known to fall in the draft. Happens every year. One of the guys is gonna fall if you go by history.

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 :/
