i believe Bortles is a great project QB who can be a Franchise starter after maybe a year of learning behind Matt Schaub  i also think he would most likely be a better day 1 starter XD

 

the raiders are looking like a win now type of team so project players are not on their list. their gonna give schaub a weapon with the first pick not competition

Don't think they reach for a Evans at that pick. This draft is really deep for WRs. No need to reach for one.

not that he's a "project player" just his skill set could use some refinement and he could be their LONG TERM solution at QB

For the Rams, maybe...but they have a good D...solid OL, after drafting Robinson...Cooks a good TE...they need a true #1 along side their WR they drafted last year (forgetting his name)...decent RBs...their life depends on the QB...and I don't think they're going QB with the #2 overall

manziel? he's also a glorified garden gnome destined for mediocrity i see jags taking bridgewater and him disappointing Bortles is the only intriguing QB of the class to me who i think can be a successful starter again just my opinion

    • Wentz is the first real dart throw...but it's still somewhat of a half-measure. And this has really been the theme since Luck got retired.   First, they tried to turn the backup QB into a franchise QB by giving him money and trying to speak it into existence.   Second, they signed a very old vet QB with a very good track record that had experience with Reich to a low-risk one-year deal to make a push.   Third, they finally traded some real draft capital for a younger post-hype QB (already under contract) who had fallen out of favor with his former team. But they even hedged this move by making one of those picks conditional...because even they know this move is a risky move that they aren't 100% confident in.   But it's not surprising...because these moves sort of follow a theme or a philosophical approach to the QB position. And maybe it's just coincidental...but there are a lot of parallels between the moves made by Ballard's previous org.'s and the moves made by the Colts.    CHI (2001-2012) Drafted (1) QB in the 1st round and that was Rex Grossman at #22 in 2003. CHI had the #4 pick that year and traded back for #13 and #22. Not only did they trade back to #13, they didn't even take a QB with that pick. (That seems like a very Ballard type of move if you ask me.) The only other QB drafted in the top 4 rounds during his entire tenure was Kyle Orton, in the 4th round of 2005 draft.  After the initial options don't work, and because CHI is stuck in QB purgatory by being no worse than 7-9, CHI makes a big trade and sends Orton and picks to DEN for Jay Cutler, a former 1st round pick QB thought to have huge upside.  But Cutler also came with some potential locker room issues and had requested a trade after his relationship with their HC became irreconcilable. (Sounds very familiar). Cutler has some success in CHI, but only wins (1) playoff game in 8 years at QB.  KC (2013 - 2017) Ballard arrives in KC after the 2013 draft. In March, KC had traded (2) 2nd round picks for Alex Smith, with one of those picks being conditional upon playing time. (This is very similar to the type of offer that Ballard gave to PHI.) Smith was a former #1 overall pick QB who had ups and down...and had just been replaced by a backup QB...coincidentally also a 2nd round pick. He had reportedly been working back channels to get out of SF. (Sounds familiar again.) Through Reid's coaching, Smith is actually a pretty damn good QB, but KC only wins (1) playoff game in five seasons (the same number as Cutler in CHI). During this time, KC doesn't draft a QB before the 5th round until 2017 when Ballard is already in Indy. At that point, they make an aggressive trade up in the NFL draft for Mahomes and let Smith mentor him for a season before trading Smith to WAS. So based on this timeline, the Colts are currently several years away from actually drafting a legit QB and thus competing for SBs. I am kidding of course. But there are a lot of parallels here.
    • No point beating a dead horse. You can marginalize the conversation by leaning on the greatest outlier in all of sporting history and ignore all the other data but I'll not stick around for that. 
    • 100 % of the teams that won the Super Bowl last year didn't
    • How many teams in the playoffs last year had a starting QB that wasn't drafted in the first round?
