The league has changed and mobile QB's with strong arms are going to get selected earlier than in the past. The era of the stationary QB is slowly dissolving. Manuel has the ability to throw, run, throw on the run. Just a ton of upside. And, guys in the NFL think they can fix some of the flaws in players who have tremendous upside.
Now, as for the picks today, at 34, I have Carradine at the top of my best board. Will he be picked? Not sure. I think medicals may play a role in where he finally lands, and may push him down the board a bit. But, the player is really good, and this team needs to address the future without Justin Smith sometime soon.
