Problem with the 2nd round qb's is that they all fall to that spot due to an obvious flaw that teams can detect. If a team thinks a qb is gonna be a franchise guy, they grab him no matter if he's a reach or not and thus the good ones are all taken in the 1st round. If a guy has what teams think is a somewhat serious flaw (too short, not a strong enough arm, etc) the dude will fall into the middle rounds. But the catch with these guys is one mans trash is anothers treasure. Take Montana or Brady: arms were too weak and they were slow of foot so they were passed over.
I really don't see a qb in this years draft thats a sure fire pro bowler. Lots of middle of the road qb's that I think may develope over time but will take 3 years or so to develope. With that in mind, I see us picking a qb with 1 of our two picks in the 4th round and trying to develpe that guy. If after a season he shows no promise, we can then go into 2012 draft and take a qb in the first round.
Picking a qb and hoping they develop is like going all in with a flush draw. It most likely aint gonna happen. Just look at...hell every draft ever. I see two very good qbs in this draft, Mallett and Newton. And i see a bunch of guys that self absorbed coaches think they can coach up.
I do this every year and im never wrong on qbs. Well i thought Matt Ryan was going to be good and not great. It started for me in 98 when i couldnt even believe there was a debate going on for the #1 pick. Clearly it was Manning and Leaf was trash. Not revisionist history thats what i thought at the time and i was right. Since then ive been 90% on qbs. Was wrong about Brian Brohm(thought he was pretty good) and Sanchez(thought he was a bum). Was 100% on Bradford, Freeman, Flacco, VY, Phillip Rivers(all the best qbs of their class).
Luck is good not great, will need a strong team around him to be successful.
Locker is complete garbage, i wouldnt want him on a practice squad
Newton could very well be the steal of the draft
Mallett is the best pure thrower of the last 5 years including Cutler and Stafford.
I dont know if I would agree with that, he has that funny release and if they try and correct it his arm could suffer pretty badly.
What in gods name are you talking about? Suffer badly? Did they need Tommy Johns? Im done with you, never speak to fools because people from a distance cant tell who is who.
