Which was my point all along, there is a context to the stats and if you look only at the stats you miss the evaluation.

Before you started, I linked a list that demonstrated what it meant. Your concern with my parameters was legitimate, but I hope by now you realize exactly how rarified the air would be if Jake Locker didn't end up with a majority of his seasons on the list I linked.
Again were back to a looking at the stats.
If the stats were the sum of his ability then according to your view it would be long odds for Locker to improve his comp%.

When you repeatedly avoid the question about how many Washington games you've watched leads me to believe that you haven't seen Locker play very often.
If stats were excluded from the discussion and we just look at Locker as a prospect i bet you would have a different opinion of him; especially his accuracy.

HTTR!

Stats are like 64 bps MP3s but worse. What physically goes on the field, such as ball location, routes thrown, etc are not carried over in the transfer to stats.

I never said a thing about his height. I don't care how tall he is, I just don't think he'll become a starting qb.

I think it's vertically challenged. I'm 6'2" but horizontally challenged lol...

Ok to make those happy who are stuck on the question....
I'd take Andy Dalton at #10. now you want my constructive criticism after right? Because his team didn't lose a game all season, they won 16 games, cause he looks more mobile then the other top prospects to me, cause he can make all the throws, cause he's got good character, cause he looks like he'd fit the scheme well to me.

Now is he worthy of the top 10 spot? Most say no. So I'll take the OL ( Center) that we need and take Andy Dalton later in the draft to make the rest of you happy that we didn't waist a top 10 pick on Dalton.

A top 10 pick on a center... That's even worse than Dalton.

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

Locker or newton will be successful on the redskins if they are properly coached by shannahans. If either are subject to what campbell went through, they probably will do the same thing, and be a mediocre starter. Start them when they are ready, and build the team around them.

Why not get a guy whose value is at #10, like Von Miller, get Dalton in the 4th round, where he will still be available, and a center in the 4th-5th round, where they usually go. Or I'll even go as high as 3rd for a center if there was a really good one and we got a 3rd from a McNabb or Haynesworth trade.

Why are you trying to reach for everything a lot higher than their draft value is? You sell the team short by doing that. Over reaching for players is why we got Orakpo. Oakland over reaching for Heyward-Bey at 7 was the domino that screwed up the rest of the draft and handed us Orakpo IMO. So I'm okay with other teams doing it, but not the Redskins.

I wonder if we should be thinking about the 3rd or 4th rounds, where we have no picks. Certainly we might get more picks in trades. But with the CBA uncertainty, there is a chance that there will be no trading of players until after the draft. What this means is that we might get only 2012 draft picks in trades.

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

I'm digging through the vault and watching game tape from this past season. I'm still really sold on Ponder. Tremendous pocket presence, underrated arm. His delivery can be a bit awkward though

But as for the guys likely to be taken in the 1st round, I'm less impressed with Mallet. He doesn't handle pressure as well as I'd thought he would and his balance looks off, particularly when hurried

Watching Locker next

You're welcome

I'm using that and other video which gives some other angles

I was just hypothesizing this based on the possibility of trading for what people are assuming we would get those players for. I know we obviously can not do that if we don't have the picks to do it with. Positive thoughts. If you think it, it will happen....

I change my answer to Christian Ponder.
Ponder would be the QB I'd like to get, but not at #10.

I don't feel like Mallett does any one thing better than any other QB in this draft...but as a complete package near the back end of the first round, I think you could do worse. I think it's very difficult to develop a quarterback who plays like a statue, but Mallett would benefit from a timing offense that allows him to get the ball out quick when he feels pressure.

I don't think I'd take him before Ponder, though.
