He is incredibly accurate and has very good poise and no happy feet in the pocket. TCU uses a bunch small speedy WRs so if we able to give him a bigger target like VD or a WR like Armon Binns or DeAndre Brown in the draft he would have one hell of an easy transition.

Seems we have one vote for Stanzi in the "Who has the better highlight package" category.

Yup. The one with the better highlights is the better QB.
Is there another way of scouting players than checking out their highlight vids?
Dalton looks like he could have a Jim Harbaugh type pro career as a starter and backup.

Senior Bowl and combine.

I'd take a chance on him before I would Stanzi


For real and neither Dalton or Stanzi are worth a 2nd rd pick in this draft. Way to much defensive talent to be reaching for back ups. 49ers dont need this bad juju floating in the universe. 3rd maybe for Dalton because hes always been consistent as is accurate. Stanzi is anything but consistent. Stanzi has had stretches of just horrid games after showing you good games. This despite having great run games and a really solid defense. Ill bet a dollar he tooks years off Thorhawks life. I wouldnt touch Stanzi till maybe the 4th. Or atleast until CB,RG,C, OLB or DT are fixed before taking either really.

Andy Dalton, Texas Christian
Height: 6020
Weight: 213

His size was considered an issue when Dalton arrived at the Senior Bowl. And while he certainly does not strike an imposing figure, he was only slightly shorter than Jake Locker and Florida State's Christian Ponder and bigger than Alabama's Greg McElroy.

"That's one thing that was good to come in and be around everybody," Dalton said. "You see that these guys aren't so much bigger. It's just fun to be out here."

Dalton is considered a tremendous leader, as he guided the Horned Frogs to an undefeated season and a No. 3 ranking. He threw for 219 yards and a touchdown and also ran for a touchdown in a 21-19 victory over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.

[REWIND: Dalton leads TCU over Wisconsin in Rose Bowl]

Thriving in a short-passing game, Dalton must prove he has the arm to make NFL-type throws. He would appear to be a fit for Harbaugh's West Coast system.

"To be in that style of offense would be a lot of fun to play in with coach Harbaugh," Dalton said. "I think he was a great hire and it'll be fun to see what he does.

"We actually played Stanford twice when I was at TCU, so I have an understanding of what they've done, and watching games on TV this year to see how productive they were."

But Dalton does not want to be typecast for only one NFL system. He said he believes he can play in any NFL scheme

Don't think he will be there in the 2nd when we pick, here are the teams that pick ahead of us in the 2nd that could use a QB.

Round 2
Buffalo
Cincinnati
Arizona
Tennessee
Washington
Minnesota

IDK, Think we may try trading up for him. I think he'd be a good pick, especially if he can sit behind a vet for a year or two.

if one of those teams wants him its going to be hard to trade, they are at the top of the 2nd.

Trade up with one of the final four teams. 29-32 Slots in the 1st rd.

"maybe an adequate starter"

"solid back up"

"may eventually adjust to a pro style"


Sounds like someone else we know. Why are we going down this route again? If we are drafting a guy on "potential" I'd rather draft a guy like Mallett who has a proven arm. Mallet from what I read needs help with footwork. That can be fixed. You can't fix an "average arm."

I just don't understand why we'd be willing to let go Troy Smith or Alex Smith to pick up a guy that's...well...going to present the same problems.
