Cant see Arizona blowing a first on a QB right now....maybe a 3rd. Sea is a toss up but Pete may try to get Barkley in a trade and save his job in the process.
yeah I agree. Still cant believe you'd take RG3 over Luck though OTC
Oh goodness, I never said that! I just said he's my favorite QB. Not the #1 QB. If you've seen my posts in other parts of this thread and other threads besides this one, I have continually stated that RGIII is, to me, hands down the 2nd best prospect after Luck.
So don't worry. I still think Luck is #1, but Griffin is next. And really not that far behind.
I agree with you, OTC, that RG3 is the 2nd best QB in this upcoming draft (if he were to declare of course). Griffin has shown so much this season and looks PERFECT for a WCO. It's too bad we won't be in position to take him or even think about taking him.
Honestly, if I were the 49ers and Griffin fell to me, I'd take him and trade Kaepernick. Nothing against Kaepernick, but with Smith playing well enough to earn an extension, we could set ourselves up so much better to have a great successor. CK is a long-term project and could/should be ready by the later part of whatever Smith's extension might be. Succession planning is important for teams that want consistent success. How much faith do they have in CK? That's the big question.
Originally posted by vrabbit:OTC what happens if he measures at 6'0" in the combine, every year we seem to discuss QB's with that height as having a tough time succeeding in the NFL, and even when we bring up Brees and Vick those QB prospects do in fact end up not making any kind of significant impact.
So what's your take on him possibly being 6'0"?
I just can't see Griffin measuring any shorter than 6-1, judging by his size compared to players around him. Consider that Barkley is the exact same size (listed) at 6-2 220. No one is going to worry about them being an inch shorter. If he somehow measures in at less than 6-1, I will be a little shocked, but I wouldn't expect him to fall out of the first round or even top 20 by any means.
If I had to guess, Griffin will at worst measure in around 6-1 1/4" which is plenty of size in my book.
