It's not arm strength that's the issue. It's not accuracy that's the issue. It's that the ball very often dives or sails on him when he's forced to quickly reset, which was pretty much all year this year because the Rams OL was trash.

Bradford is plenty smart enough to get it, but he came into the league really smart, and he's struggled to overcome himself, not to mention his own offense.

Ponder is far from a finished product, but he makes plays. Once he cuts the mistakes out, I think he'll be a very good pro starter. Ponder's problem is he's got to figure out a way to survive as a starter in this league even though the position prototype is shifting away from people who look like him. Bradford looks the part, but his obvious limitations always have me scratching my head as to how he got picked first overall ahead of Suh. Bradford needed a really strong offensive structure and system to be effective, and instead he got: the Rams.

The only other negative you can think of 'looking bad' would be a rather large negative.
And that is the exact reason why most top QB prospects don't throw at the combine if they can get away with it and Luck certainly could.

If Luck chooses to compete in the throwing sessions at the combine he takes on the needless risk of being upstaged; the risk of not throwing or looking like the best QB prospect on the field.

Keep in mind I'm not saying the above will happen.
I'm just pointing out the chief 'negative' if Luck chooses to compete at the combine when he can wait til his pro-day.
Now, if Luck does choose to compete it will say a lot about his personality and competitive spirit; it will be ballsy.

I hope the kid goes out there and just grips it and rips it! let the cards fall where they may.
Go out there and show you've got nothing to hide.
Compete shoulder to shoulder with the other QB prospects.
It will continue a great precedent started by Cam Newton.

I get the sense that this is a smoke screen (as the picture indicates).

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I'd have no problem with Weeden. But at this point anything is possible.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

if i'm being honest with myself, if we draft a qb, i'm going to focus on his pros and forget his flaws in order to convince myself that he will lead us to the top shelf

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Of all the rookie quarterbacks, Weeden is by far the one most likely to be drafted by the Redskins.

I don't think he's their first choice though, but if choices one and two are off the board at 6th overall, then sure.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

If we draft Brandon Weeden 6th overall, I might just hang myself.

Definitely not, but he's part of the overall thought process no doubt

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I'd rather have a box of Weedens than a Grossman Beck sandwich.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

If they can sign either Manning or Orton, they won't target Weeden.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I don't want Weeden at #60 let alone #6! Maybe it's harsh and unreasonable but I have no use for a 28 year old rookie...

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Nobody said anything about taking Weeden at #6 folks

from the link:

Here's an interesting theory I heard recently that makes some sense: Mike Shanahan loves Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden, who he coached in the Senior Bowl, and might try to trade down into the 20s of the first round to take him. Weeden is 28 and that scares a lot of teams, but he's mature and ready to play in the NFL right away, and the Redskins don't have time to wait around for someone to develop.
