In all the various mock drafts, is their one player you'd HATE for the Skins to draft at 15?

I hear what you are saying, and the mobile QB is the latest fad. But find me a 'running QB' that has had any career worth merit after the age of 30.

Just saying, there's lots of young running QBs out there. But there are no old ones.

Fran Tarkenton and Steve Young come to mind, but yes, it is extremely rare.

Good call, he was so much fun to watch scrambling around back there like a sandlot game.

Watching the 30 for 30 "From Elway to Marino", which focuses on the 1983 First Round of the Draft, is a tad painful.

Marino almost dropped all the way to the Skins with the last pick in the first round. Can you imagine Joe Gibbs, with Dan Marino??? Holy crap. I know I have read that Gibbs was getting more and more excited as Marino kept falling.

Of course, the Skins snagging Darrell Green instead, was pretty amazing too. But it makes you wonder ... would Green have been there for the Skins in round 2?? Coming out of Texas A & I, I think it's possible. Then you would have had Marino in round 1, and Green in round 2. Wowsa.

Which is why I thought we'd keep Cousins. What was I thinking? LOL!

And even that sustained run was with a QB that did not want to play here and wanted to get paid elite QB money.

Brady can move in the pocket as well as anyone.

You don't have to run a 4.5 when you know when to take that extra step up to buy the extra time to throw.

Could he be another in a long line of work out freaks that do not produce consistently on the field?
Plus with our history of injured players and drafting injured players, Metcalf has had his share. He had a neck injury that caused him to miss the remainder a season and required surgery.

From San Diego Tribune:
"....He likely has a fusion at one level to treat disc herniation and/or ligamentous instability. Many players have continued their career from a single level fusion surgery. ...... If he needed a second level fused, that indeed would jeopardize his career. He should be well healed by now. He also had a foot injury as a freshman, though there is not much information regarding that injury. The bigger issue might not be medical but his poor performance on agility drills compared to his measurable, which were off the charts."

What about the scheme didn't utilize his talent?

Ole Miss seemed to be able to use Brown's talent. He could run more than one route though.

He can't run the others well enough to keep DBs honest. They'll just back off him and have time to drive on the ball.

Are you blind or stupid? See the part of the quote I posted that is IN BOLD AND UNDERLINED. That is the point I was raising and why he might drop out of being a top 10 or 20 pick in this draft. He has an injury that if re injured could shorten or end his career. The rest of the quote about agility I do not give a fuck about.
