Why take Clausen over Kafka? Clausen had more talent to work with than Kafka did and didn't make a bowl. Kafka almost single handedly got Northwestern to 8-4 as he was the was virtually the entire offense, ether passing or running. I know Kafka ran the spread, but he looked pretty good at the East West Shrine game. He should be around in the mid rounds anyway. Too much good QB talent this draft to just look at the sexy picks.

None of those issues are a knock on him, just a product of the team/offensive system. I think to get a more accurate eval of him you need to look at the championship with UF and you see some good/some bad. I don't think he's going to be a bust, but I don't think he projects to an elite QB in the NFL. His transition will likely take a bit longer than Clausen. I wouldn't spend the #4 overall pick on him. If Clausen's gone, then I go LT.
I completely agree.
I feel the same way about Clausen and McCoy. Neither of the big three QB's are #4 pick in the draft/franchise QB worthy. You are taking a big gamble.
I remember seeing Ben Roethlisburger playing at little Miami of Ohio and seeing him as legit future NFL star. He made his team better and they beat/upset several bigger teams.
When I have seen Bradford or Clausen play against even talent or lesser talented teams they did not impress me.
I do not want us to spend the #4 pick on any three of the QB's. They will be good NFL QB's but they will not be great.

Not really. He's really been impressed with Clausen on film and from talking to his teammates. I think that decision is more of a talent perspective and has nothing to do with Bradfords shoulder.

McShay simply doesn't think he's got what it takes mentally, physically or in work ethic to make it as a big time NFL QB. He thinks that Clausen has peaked and there's not much more that he can grow as a QB.

I don't know that I'd go that far but I will be surprised and disappointed if we pick him at #4.
I'd be surprised if we picked either one of the two QB's atop the draft board. If we stay at #4 and don't trade out, I want a player whose going to go to pro-bowls for years to come (Brian Orakpo). We don't absolutely need to draft a QB in this years draft. If we don't drastically improve the O-line we're not going to win many games, so this time next year we'll be talking about Ryan Mallett, Jake Locker, Jeremiah Misoli, Kellen Moore or Case Keenum.

Go on and laugh, but Colt Brennan is the Redskins best kept secret, especially if we trade Jason Campbell. He's got the strongest motivating factor of anyone on the team, "they say" he can't play.

People were saying the same thing before the draft about Ryan and Flacco. All I know is that all three QB's are smart guys. I personally love the fact that Clausen is a film rat. Usually you'll see the best QB's are the one that study the most. It's a mental position much more so then it is a physical one. Thats why guys with questionable arm strength can't light the world on fire.

And on a side note, given that Clausen and Quinn seemed to be compared to each other a lot, the thing I keep hearing about Quinn is that he spends much more time in the gym then he does studying film.

Though out of curiosity I'd like to know for the people that aren't convinced that these guys aren't top teir QB types as to what you would need to find out to change your mind? Like more arm strength, clean bill of health, better stats?

For me personally, it is not something I need to find out about them that will convince me. It is more of a "I know it when I see it' situation and I am referring in particular to 'seeing it' on the playing field. These three did not wow me in college with their pure Qb skills like Ben Roelisburger did. They are great leaders and field managers, and very good college Qb's. But it will not translate to being an elite NFL QB or worthy of a #4 draft pick.
Now I will admit have not seen every game they have played in and I know they have had great college careers. But in what I have seen of them on a playing field, I have not seen it consistently to be convinced they are elite Qb's ready for the NFL. IMO they will be good NFl Qb's but they not be elite QB's in the NFL.

When you draft a QB in the 1st rd. especially as high as #4 you don't want to miss, when you do it set's you back tremendously, this year in particular because of so much uncertainly surrounding the eventual outcome of a new CBA. Bradford and Clausen are undoubtedly fine young prospects but either could be a reach at #4. My concern in this years draft is protecting the QB regardless of who it is.

I think you just broke Chase Daniel's heart. LOL.

Seriously though, if we were to take Snead, what round would you say we could get him?

I like the sound of Larry Michael screaming Jevan to Devin, in for a Touchdown!
