2012 NFL Draft-QB Prospects (Chapter 5)
 
Figured we could go with yet another fresh thread on the QB search.

Here's a little bit on some "2nd tier" QB options

The more I read about Nick Foles, the more I'm not so impressed.

And, I wonder how much Tannehill's broken foot is going to drop his stock? Might could get him at a steal.

I feel like there is a huge drop off at qb after Luck and RG3. Tannehill and his broken foot isn't helping his cause. I think Weeden is good but his age sucks. I like Russell Wilson and Moore but their height is an issue. The rest of the qbs I see as career backups IMO. I wish Landry Jones and Matt Barkley were coming out.

Never actually saw Foles, play but plan to do so in the Senior Bowl. I've heard multiple sources who are very high on him especially w/ the lack of talent around him in his senior year.

Foles is the wildcard for me.

I saw games where he threw it deep and he was getting it down field effortlessly.

I also saw games where all they did was run screens.

Will be watching him closely during the senior bowl.

Let me ask you this, are you any at all interested in Flynn?

I am because we need a Vet on this team. Even if it's just a replacement for Beck. I'd prefer Grossman get sent packing also, but I ask because Flynn is 26yo, Weeden is only 28. I agree no one wants their Rookie draft pick to be on the back end of their career age wise but I feel his age should make him more mature and a more stable football QB. In other words he probably should make better decisions on and off the field.

If Weeden fits what MS and KS want a QB to do then I'm happy with drafting him and letting the best QB play. This would also buy the team time to develope Weeden and still be able to pick up a QB next year if the market has more talented QB's in it.

I'm interested in any quarterback not named Rex Grossman or John Beck. But yes, I really like Flynn. The knock on him is that he may be the product of a system, but our system is similar to what they run in GB.The boy can ball but it's all about how much we would have to give up for him. If GB doesn't franchise him we should sign him as a free agent immediately, then in the draft you can get someone like Kellen Moore, Cousins, or even Weeden.

How does Colin Kaepernick sound? I didn't know if you could possibly get him from the raiders for maybe a third round pick. Considering the raiders have Pryor, Palmer, and Kaepernick under contract and also the rumors of them signing Flynn could possibly open up the idea of a trade. I remember a few people on here last year were glamoring over him. Thought's?

I'd probably still look into RGIII even if I did get Flynn, but it would depend on what the asking price was. If it was too much then alteast you still have (hopefully) a better QB then Grossman/Beck and as you say look for one of the others to develope for the future.

That would be tough since he's actually on the 49ers.

If we could get Flynn AND draft a good QB, I'd be for that. HOWEVER, we all know Flynn is going to be getting mad money. Do we really want to invest that much money into someone who has only played two games?

and I'd say yes. No different then how it used to be, giving a drafted QB a ton of money and he hasn't played at all in the NFL. Atleast we know what Flynn can do and what he might be able to do in our system vs. RGIII whom we have no clue if he will do well or not.

But the key is there is a Rookie CAP so there would not be a ton of money dished out to both.
