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

I'm still not high on Gabbert saw him play quite a bit this season and has very avg downfield accuracy, good arm but really not worth top 10 pick.. In fact I bet he slips down in the draft after the combine.

I will say Gabbert has good potential though, I believe at one point he was the number 1 QB in the nation when recruited.

I'd take locker only if we can trade down around 18 ish.

At 10 if Cam is there, we should take him.. He loves the game of football and has potential out of this world.

IMHO I'd rather draft Some speed at LB at 10 but we all know shanny loves QBs

Scout.com had him ranked as the #7 QB in his class. Rivals however had him as #1 so take your pick.

I say we wait for Danny O'Brien lol

Of certain things, the Redskins can be clear—even if they can't get a front line, immediate starter, the Redskins still need to draft a quarterback. While Rex Grossman can be a short-term solution, the 'Skins have to think long term.

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

Cam Newton is too much of an unknown to run a NFL offensive formation. That is too much of a gamble at #10 and I would stay away from him. He might love the game but drop back passers are the way to go.

Cam will have to learn how to read defensives. He has to be quick enough to check down. He just does not have that going for him. Lastly, he must be QB smart. I see talent in him to escape the pressure, but that's not playing the position.

I like the sleeper in Andy Dalton. Please, no more Auburn QBs.

You aren't alone in not wanting Newton in DC. Check it out.

I've been high on Dalton for a while, guy is a winner and very underrated arm

I agree with that but I think VY is almost worse. Cam just seems flashy to me. VY is almost skitzo with multiple personalities or bipolar or something.

I think he's definitely a burrito short of a taco stand, if you catch my drift.

Yeah VY has dealt with mental health issues.

There's just no way to know what kind o factor that played in evaluating his career. My bet is that it was a major factor in stunting his development.

I hear you,but the potential upside for Kolb is a lot different then Mcnabb,so much so i dont think the Eagles would do it.As far as Vince goes,i know he's a head case,but whos to say he cant mature like Vick.But knowing vince,he probably thinks he needs to be the starter somewhere and want a lot of money and wont settle for a backup role

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

It's pretty doubtful that Newton is a good fit for Kyle's system. Many of us (and analysts) are hung up on what Mike's QBs have looked for but Kyle is calling the plays. Based on some of the McNabb issues, it doesn't seem like Kyle is much for an improvisational QB or one whose strengths are creating their own plays outside the structure of the offense.

I love Newton's long term upside and even though I voted for him in this poll, the more I think of it he's not the best fit for us.

Let me make this clear: I don't want Cam Newton to be the starting quarterback for the Redskins. Not now. Not next year. Not in seven years, provided McNabb's incentive-laden contract expires. Newton is Vince Young in training: a big, rangy kid with a national championship - and more baggage than will fit in the overhead compartment. Let him be somebody else's project.
