^RG3 faces some real competition over the next couple of weeks. As good as he's looked, we should know a lot more about him by Halloween.

You know what I actually agree with. He doesn't have a rocket like McNabb or Ryan Mallet. However, he does have a good arm. He can make all of the throws.

I think he has some talent but he's not a first round pick.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

Why is no one here talking about Tannehill? I haven't seen much of him but he is putting up some nice numbers.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

God this class is so loaded.

Every year the QB class seems somewhat underwhelming, and so I've taken something of a "wait for next year" attitude. Well, next year is coming. Now. There are so many first round QBs that we shouldn't have to trade anywhere to land the right guy.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Prospects

We finally have some smart people running this organization. I'm glad we did what we did, and what we didn't do in the draft considering the QB's who will be available next year.

Given that QB is arguably the weakest position on our roster, I would be stunned if we didn't go hard after QB talent.

I have to take back my previous statement. Robert Griffen has first round talent. I just watched his game against tcu. This kid is excellent passer with great mobility. The only thing that concerns me is his size.

Thanks for the vid! Although he has a bit of a windup, he throws a sweet ball. Good legs. And, while he's not prototypical size, he's bigger than Kellen Moore. And he has commentators who speak ?Russian?

That wind up passing motion gives me horrible flashbacks of Jason Campbell. Overall, I think RG3 is an excellent football player and with good coach he could be a very good qb. However, I still believe that Luck, Barkley, Jones, and Foles are franchise qbs. One thing i love about this draft is that we have a lot of options without having to trade away future picks to get a talented qb. The last few years it's only been one guy worth drafting in the first round. In this draft I see 5 or possible 6 guys that have first round talent.

Yup. If we are looking for a top-shelf QB (and I think we should), this is a great year to do so.

I don't see any reason why we wouldn't go after one of these studs at qb. If we end up in the top 15 we should be able to get one of the top 4 qbs. I'm going to start a thread about next years qb class. I honestly think this is the best qb class I have ever seen.
