Robert Griffin III Baylor QB

I'm pretty sure we wont be drafting a QB

I doubt we take him (or would even have a chance at him), too. Even though he's my favorite QB prospect in the draft, I believe we will watch Griffin go to another team in need of a QB, possibly even in the NFC West, which could be scary. This draft is QB rich, and there are a number of teams in need -- whether immediate or future.

Teams that could/are likely to look QB in the draft include (with my guesses of possible landing spots):

Colts - Andrew Luck?
Chiefs - Landry Jones?
Dolphins - Robert Griffin?
Redskins - Kirk Cousins?
Cardinals - Ryan Tannehill?
Seahawks - Matt Barkley?
RG3 > Luck

not to thread hijack, but am I the only one who believes Tannehill would be better off returning for his senior year? I mean with Luck, Jones, Barks, and others gone, he might be top QB prospect next season, and IMO he's not ready to succeed as a rookie right now

I'd totally agree... if he wasn't a senior

You guys think the combine can boost his stock any higher than it already is?

Why is he the best QB prospect? Because he runs the best ? I still believe that Andew Luck and Matt Barkley are the 2 top QB prospects in the draft.

you're under-rating his passing abilities. he's pretty accurate with most of his passes including the deep ball. but after watching barkley's last 2 games, i don't blame you at all, he's been throwing it well.

he has the higher ceiling because of his mobility/speed/quickness, he's every bit as good if not better than both Luck and Barkley in arm strength and accuracy, just hasn't performed in a pro system. His footwork definitely needs to be worked on.

He's also an established leader with a right head on his shoulders and very good work ethic, there's really not a whole lot to not like about this guy

I've honestly never really seen him play, and when I have, he's never taken off scrambling. Sounds like this guy is the real deal
