LOL, I guess you like a late round flier then.

Who cares what round as long as we get the right QB!

I say we should sign or trade for a veteran QB to start now, draft a QB to develop in the middle to late rounds, then who knows which QB we could have a shot at in next year's draft? In my opinion, it too much of a risk to draft a QB early.

Im totally good with Devlin in the 2nd round....however, I beleive we may have to trade up....becuase there will be many teams ahead of us, that if they hadnt have taken a QB in the 1st, and still need a QB will take him.

Possibly....but I have a feeling that both Mallett and Locker will be sitting there at the top of round 2.

Hopefully someone will pull the trigger on one of them

I REALLY like Devlin. I like how little his feet move, I like how quick his release is, I like how quickly he's making decisions and I like how he threw 22 TDs and 2 INTs this past year.

I think he has "Jim Harbaugh Project" written all over him.

I'd like to draft Pat Devlin, trade for Josh Johnson, and then look for a vet QB as insurance that isn't named Alex Smith or David Carr.

2007 (FRESHMAN): He saw time in wins over Western Carolina and Tennessee ... completed 8-of-9 passes for 73 yards and a touchdown, all against WCU ... first career touchdown pass was a 1-yard pass to tight end Nick Walker in the third quarter of the Western Carolina game.

2006 (REDSHIRT): Redshirted his initial season of eligibility.

HIGH SCHOOL AND PERSONAL DATA: He starred for national high school power Southlake Carroll High School in Texas ... took over as a starter in his senior season after playing behind Chase Daniel, the 2004 National High School Player of the Year who went on to star at Missouri ... racked up 4,687 yards with 56 touchdowns and only nine interceptions in his one year as a starter ... the 56 touchdowns set a new Texas high school record ... led his team to the Texas Class 5A state title, the team's third in four seasons, and a mythical high school national championship in 2005 ... named Offensive Player of the Year in Texas ... completed 321-of-450 pass attempts and ran for over 700 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior ... completed 21-of-31 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns en route to MVP honors in the state championship win over Katy.

LOL, I guess you like a late round flier then.

Who cares what round as long as we get the right QB!

I say we should sign or trade for a veteran QB to start now, draft a QB to develop in the middle to late rounds, then who knows which QB we could have a shot at in next year's draft? In my opinion, it too much of a risk to draft a QB early.

No way I want to invest anything into another John Parker Wilson. Sorry, Namath and Starr he is not....I think Stabler is the last noteworthy Alabama qb that has done anything. Im sorry I have MANY Alabama friends, that were screaming for the backup to come in for McElroy most of the year. He doesent have good feet, waits to long to make a decision...and was blessed to have all star talent around him.



No way Jose.

No way Jose.

I'm not saying that McElroy would be my first choice. These are all just ideas mentioned in this thread. What I am saying is that I don't think we should waste an valuable early pick on a QB. It's very risky! Sign a veteran to start for a year or two, and then draft a prospect you can develop for the future. At the very least we'd have quality depth at QB. Think about how many QBs who have been found in the 2nd round of the draft or later!

Wow he releases that ball so fast. He reminds me of drew brees.

The release is one of the main reasons I like him so much.

He seems like a bright kid. I think he has become my favorite in the draft. Not worth the number 7 over all pick. Maybe we can make a trade with the Pats to pick him up in the late first round. I'm thinking he may not be there by our second pick. Man I can't wait. By the way he is playing in the East West Shrine game in January 22. Have to have the NFL network though.

Possibly....but I have a feeling that both Mallett and Locker will be sitting there at the top of round 2.

Hopefully someone will pull the trigger on one of them

I REALLY like Devlin. I like how little his feet move, I like how quick his release is, I like how quickly he's making decisions and I like how he threw 22 TDs and 2 INTs this past year.

I think he has "Jim Harbaugh Project" written all over him.

I only have watched the highlights like most people, but can someone explain to me something negative about this guy?

1) He might have the best pocket presence I've ever seen.
2) He certainly throws a very accurate ball, both with arm and with touch.
3) He has a good arm.
4) He seems really smart, with a good head in interviews.
5) He has a tight, quick release, and passes the eye test.

IMO all the other quarterbacks in the draft play like chickens with their heads cut off in comparison when watching their highlight films. In many of the other quarterbacks highlights, I didn't see a single pass completed from a tight pocket, not ONE single pass.

So he played at a small school, but is that it? I am really confused because this guy's highlights seem to blow the other quarterbacks away.

I think it's because he checks the ball down a lot and doesn't throw it deep very much, and he takes like all of his snaps from the shotgun. But yeah, he could be a real good prospect for us.
Here are my picks for QB and their availability with what I think would be good fits for the offense I believe the 49ers will be implementing (Now keep in mind I think we are better off getting a QB in the 2nd or 3rd):

1. Ryan Mallett - He is my top pick. If he is available in the 2nd when we pick (He won't) then we need to go with this guy. Big strong guy that I think can help the 49ers. He impressed me more and more his last year at Arkansas. Remember the SEC is a tough division and if he can handle the pressure of that division then stepping into the NFC West should be relatively comparable.

2. Pat Devlin - Now people may say that they don't know who he is, is he any good? The answer to that is YES! In the right system (just like every other QB) he will be perfect. The WCO would fit him perfectly. Accurate short passing and if needed he can move the ball down field if necessary. He tore apart my alma mater (Division II though) and the high school I teach at. You may say "oh he's from U Del." So what! He was at Penn State wasn't going to start so he went to Delaware. Remind you of anybody (Although Flacco went to Pitt)?

3. Jake Locker - He was going to be the #1 pick last year what has changed since then? If anything his team sucked it up this year the PAC-10 was much better this year. Hell, if we can get him in the second I might be willing to consider taking him off Devlin on pure potential and talent. It would be a toss up.

4. Andy Dalton - I don't know why, but I think this guy is going to be a stud. Looked good in just about every game. Good leader on the field. Nothing spectacular, but I don't think that was really needed at TCU. I would take him in the 3rd if he is available and the above three are not there.

I think taking a QB in the first would be a mistake. Just think of how many QB's have collected so much money and done absolutely nothing. We could play King's Cup and pull up the category card and use First Round NFL QB busts and probably be sitting here naming them till the draft started. We need one of the top two CB's, we aren't getting Nmandi (as nice as that would be).
I get what you are saying PT, But the odds of finding a franchise QB in the later rounds are slim to none. The exception is Brady and Romo currently.

Just because Alex didnt work out for us with a first round pick doesent mean that we have to be shy about taking a qb again in the 1st. Chargers are a perfect example. They whiffed big time on Leaf....yet took Brees....then Rivers. We cant just say, NO we cant take a QB again in the first becasue the last one didnt work out. Every pick is a risky pick. Especially at QB. Its up to the team to properly identify their strengths and weaknesses and put them in the right situation.

Alex was picked to play in McCarthy's WCO. When McCarthy left, a new offensive philosophy came in, and it all went downhill from there as we all know. Having Harbaugh here, we now have a offensive philosophy that wont change. We can now groom whatever qb we can for success long term, why not take one with the highest ceiling, instead of one with low ceilings later on?

I remember Devlin coming into the Horseshoe at Ohio State and leading them to a win throwing the game winning TD. He is a favorite for what we want to do here.

I've watched Delaware play twice this year without paying much attention to him specifically. Looking at these videos he's got good feet, very quick release, and his eyes always seem to be looking down field for an open man, even on the run.
