What do you want to see in our next QB?

OK, based on a few posts about the 2021 QB prospects and looking at the current slew of mobile NFL QB's, I thought I'd ask this question. I figured a vote won't work as there are potentially too many permutations. I figured better to list characteristics and pick the ideal.

1) Mobile
2) Accurate
3) Big arm
4) Touch
5) Leader
6) Pocket Passer
7) Runner
8) Pocket presence
9) Height (is this really that important any more?)
10) Footwork
11) Intangibles (explain?)
12) Other - anything you think I missed?

For me my priorities would be 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 11. I'm not sure I necessarily want 7 over 6 (or vice versa), as long as the team is built around this option. For intangibles I'd go for personality; can the kid not just carry the team with him but also the fans, and impact the community and wider NFL. For example, Rodgers persona extends beyond the football field, he seems to have a good character that endears him to more than just GB fans.

I want a guy who's mobile so he can help the OL and extend plays. I'm not convinced he has to be a runner. I think Russell is the exception here as he's both an accomplished passer and a runner. Murray isn't there yet, as his outing last night suggests (9-for-24 for 188 yards, 93.8 rating), and likewise, Jackson seems to rely more on his feet than his passing ability. Mahomes is more in Russell's mould; he can extend plays and run if he has to but it isn't something he/their offense relies on. I can't help thinking that Russell and Mahomes will last longer in the NFL than Jackson or Murray, due to wear and tear, so I'd rather have a guy who's a passer first and a runner last.

If I'm picking top 10 next year (let's for a minute assume we have the #1 pick option), then Lawrence and Fields seem to fit that bill best (though I'm dubious about another OS QB). Lance and Newman seem to be more running QB's to me. Beyond that, I'm not sure I see a top 10 talent worth risking a pick?

Re: What do you want to see in our next QB?

I hate to answer in this way but it doesn't look to me like a good crop of QB's in the upcoming draft. Trading down in Round 1 for more picks might be the way to go in Year 2 of the team build. We could draft a QB a bit later in the draft.

12) Toughness.

Re: What do you want to see in our next QB?

The 3 most important qualities for me are...

1. Accuracy
2. Intelligence
3. Character

Our last 2 1st round QBs failed on all 3 so things can only get better.

Someone who doesn’t suck.....12
Honestly I dont care how they get it done...pocket, mobile, or if they are short or tall. Accuracy or a cannon...just get it done.
The problem is when you do not have a good scheme, a good line, a good run game, a defense that can keep you on the field. There are quarterbacks that would succeed on other teams but not this one. But if by some miracle we assemble a complete team and staff around them i don’t really care how they get it done as long as they get it done.

Yes, I want the next QB chosen by football people and not dan Snyder...no more rg3, pat ramsey, mcnabb, Haskins, etc.

He doesn’t make the choice.

Personally, I'd flip Fields and Wilson.

This team is close to winning imo. The DL is a great core that gives us a window from 2021 to 2025. We intentionally didnt spend in FA this year.

Cap next year is expected to SHRINK to 175M ... that means teams like New Orleans who would be 70M over the cap already may cut Brees.

2021 free agency is going to be the strangest year ever imo. Teams may be cutting some real studs.

LT Ronnie Stanley
QB - Brees or Ryan or some other vet option may be there
LB
CB1
FS
G

------------------------------------

We can become competitive over night in the offseason. We are well positioned and loaded with resources.

Yes Lawrence is the real deal, best since Manning
