Re: IF We Take A QB At #10...Who Do You Want?

Ok so I went and Youtubed Jake Locker Highlights...

YouTube - Jake Locker Career Highlights

He seems like a decent QB, with an ability to escape trouble with his Harry Whodini routines, but I quickly got bored with the first part of the video showing nothing but him either running a designed QB run play or running around like a rat who's had too much energy drink trying to avoid a sack. I will say that with our OL it might not be a bad idea to get him.... he might be able to do something with the ball considering he had so many broken plays he turned into gains.

So I moved forward to the passing and he seems to have a good arm, fast release, and seems to be able to throw on the run.

I was simply going back to see the QB's mentioned here. My only concern is I'm not sure if the video is of any games from this yr or simply highlights of all his yrs in college.

Blain Gabbert looks awkward to me. When he scrambles he looks slow, there is something about his throwing motion that I can't identify, although he seems to have a pretty strong arm to throw down field.

Re: IF We Take A QB At #10...Who Do You Want?

Cam Newton seemed to be a decent QB as well, however watching the first part of the video left me feeling like here's another QB running around like a chicken with his head cut off. He's definitly mobile, seems to have a strong arm, maybe a big wind up, and perhaps calls his number or is not patient in the pocket.

Re: IF We Take A QB At #10...Who Do You Want?

Yet another QB Jerrod Johnson with Whodini ability, does have a strong arm..... again doesn't seem patient or wants to simply run it himself....

YouTube - Texas A&M Football '10

on a side note I wonder if the RB will be available to us late in the draft.

Mallett seems like a decent QB as well. Patient in the pocket, rolls out smooth, passes on the run well, good arm....

Shameless Plug: You can watch more than just the highlights by going to ESPN3.com Click "Watch Now" Search "Missouri" (for example), Choose "NCAAF" then pick your game and "Watch Replay"

It'll give you a more complete idea than the YT highlights. Over 150 games to choose from

(Note: Fixing the Auburn issue)

Re: IF We Take A QB At #10...Who Do You Want?

Christian Ponder seems to be a good choice also. Strong arm, accurate, places the ball so the receiver can continue their run, can run with the ball....

Andy Dalton, I don't know, I watch him and I'm left impressed still with his play. Poise, arm strength, accuracy, run ability, .....

Actually, yes. I assume you meant "in 2010", because they're not close for their careers.

The biggest differences between them were:

-Completion percentage much higher for Gabbert
-Sack rate a little bit lower for Gabbert (not a passing efficiency component)
-Rushing Efficiency decisively in the favor of Locker (not a passing efficiency component)
-Gabbert had more attempts, mostly, because Locker missed a game and parts of two others.

I think if you wanted to say that Locker and Gabbert had more similar seasons than they were different, that would make some sense. I also think that it would be reasonable to say that Gabbert as a junior was not a significantly better college player than Locker as a fourth or fifth year senior.

I think that's as far as that argument would take you though. Gabbert probably wouldn't be a top pick this if he wasn't exceptional as a first year starter in 2009, but it seems reasonable to argue that he would have been better in 2011 with more receiver experience than he was in 2010 had he come back for his senior year. I am NOT saying he should automatically get credit for leaving that last year on the table. I am saying that Gabbert looks the part of a top ten pick (and I would take him at no. 10 if he's there), but still carries some concern, namely that the questions we would all have about him as a Senior in 2011 will be left unanswered.
