uh...yeah seriously, what do you think is the bigger problem, the line that just had its 10th starter of the year and the 5th guy playing right guard or the qb who has played behind the piece of s*** line and put up decent numbers all year?

Re: NFL Comparables for 2010 Draft Prospects at Quarterback

I don't think a QB in the 1st is any sort of lock at this point. We'll have a better idea as soon as some other issues are sorted out after the season, mainly, who is going to be calling the personnel shots and who the HC is going to be.

Re: NFL Comparables for 2010 Draft Prospects at Quarterback

That was a very interesting exercise.

If your list of pro QB's who are most comparable to Jake Locker wouldn't be enough to scare a GM away from drafting him, I don't know what would be.

Can you tell us more about why you are so high on Skelton?

you said we wouldn't draft a qb period, i'm saying we will, i would hope it's not in the first round but it is very possible. we need to go line possibly trade down, but i doubt that will happen. but if you don't think we will draft at qb at all then i am saying you are wrong

Re: NFL Comparables for 2010 Draft Prospects at Quarterback

Have comparables been created for College O-Linemen? We need new blood on the OL far more than a QB.

One thing I learned in college, is the creator of the comparables can skew the results any which way they want. I'm just saying............

I don't think I could do a statistical system on left tackles. We'd be better off comparing them to celebrities based on their looks and then picking our favorites.

But seriously, no Vinny jokes

Ask WaldSkins, he saw him play live. Seen some (very little because there isn't much) footage of him. Heard scouts rave about him. Totally raw. Honestly think he could get drafted higher than he probably should based on his potential. Gets compared to Flacco because he's a tall, small-school QB. I see a little bit of Warren Moon in him.

Realistically, I think he's a strong back-up but maybe not franchise starter material. I probably wouldn't take a look at him before the 4th. If we're drafting a QB in the first round I'd look at Clausen or Bradford. 2nd-3rd I'd go with Robinson or Snead. Gun to my head I'd probably prefer Robinson or Snead over any other QB in the draft based on the assumption that means we can go OL first round, RB 4th round and then take our QB in either round 2 or 3 (understanding that we'd need to trade for a 3rd).

There are worse things for a qb than having a bit of Moon...

I like your "gun-to-head" draft plan.

Has anyone actaully seen Skelton play?? I mean if anyone is watching Fordum play then more power to them. lol. But I'm cool with drafting a guy like this as long as it's in the mid to later rounds.

Why should we draft or not draft Skelton? What's he like as a player?

Re: NFL Comparables for 2010 Draft Prospects at Quarterback

1.) He's got size comparable to Flacco, but with more muscle.
2.) He moves around in the pocket a lot(and I mean a lot)
3.) He has a quick release.
4.) His deep ball is very accurate but it doesn't seem like he gets a the hangtime of a Flacco or Big Ben.
5.) He's not scared to tuck and run, although he will take a hit(Big Ben) instead of just sliding.
6.) I like his footwork and the fact that he keeps his eyes down field( he doesn't have that look where he's waiting for the sack like Campbell does) But i'm sure that has to do with Skelton trusting his OL.

He reminds me of Drew Bledsoe, but faster and stronger
