MD, is EJ Manuel at 30 another example of you just trying to slot players in the "general" area, or do you think the Falcons are a good candidate to trade down with a QB-needy team?
How would you feel about the 49ers taking Manuel at 34? Some would call it a weird pick with CK entrenched, but EJ looks like a backup made in heaven.
Sorry. Been in a bunker the past week. I think both Manuel and Nassib get selected late in the first by a team trading up in the 30s or 40s. In fact, I think the team could deal the 31st for a first next year and an extra third this year. I'm guessing that is one scenario that they will come across. Look for the Cards, Bills, Eagles to be teams fighting to get their prospect. I have Geno Smith at 6 to the browns.
To me, Manuel at 31 or 34 doesn't make much sense, even though I have him as my top rated QB in this draft. I do see the team making a late round call for a QB. Maybe Ryan Griffin of Tulane.
