Just about very mainstream football show or news site has 3 QBs being taken in the top 10, and 4-5 taken in the 1st. 

 

Do tell? Done told...

 

By the way, many said KC was reaching for Mahomes who they saw as a system QB. Many said Baltimore was reaching for Jackson even though he was late 1st round. QBs taken very high (even highest) bust all the time. Like I said earlier, 42% of all QBs taken in the 1st have a PB year, and 40% are bust. Many "no-brainers" bust. Many "reaches" prove good.

so you can ask that Pallo share "all" articles?  But you give that blanket statement?  And say done?   HAHA not a chance 

 

Most QB's taken in round 1 is 5 one time .  and 4 QB's in the 1st round 4 times since 2000. 

 

If 4 QB's are taken in the first round then there are teams reaching for them.  There are 3 1st round talents IMO .  1 Tua 2 Burrow and 3 Herbert.   I think Tua is far above the others.

So one ESPN guy's opinion? lol... 

The post said 2019 was better (look at 2019's class and their impact last year lol). 2018 may very well be better, but I'm betting they are using a lot of hindsight instead of reflecting back on how they viewed 2018 at the time. I'll remind you that they are likely placing great emphasis on Jackson's performance last season, when in fact he went in the late round, and most projected him a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Out of the 4 top 10 picks, none are performing in the top half of the league, and one isn't even playing. 

 

Please share "all" the articles. I think you're projecting your opinion. I've read a ton on this class. While it may not be seen as great (like WRs and CBs this year), it's not seen as poor either. If it were so poor, why are all the experts projecting more QBs taken in the first round than 4 out of the last 5 years? Especially with the abundance of FAs available. But go ahead and continue to defy simple math and basics of projected demand.

I actually took the time to post the last 5 years of 1st rounds... 

I've also posted several mainstream big boards and mocks showing what I described. 

So accusing me of being "blanket" is pretty funny. I'm one of the more detailed posters on this board. Pallo has posted nothing. If it would make you happy, I'll post all the mocks from CBS, ESPN, Fox, NFL.com, DN, Walter, etc. showing 4 and 5 QBs taken. Just say the word. Oh wait, I already did that exact thing a month or so back if you care to look... lol

 

5 QBs were taken in 99 by the way if you go back just one more year.

 

As far making a statement that anything over 3 is a reach, that's purely your opinion. Every team has their own big board. There are QBs every year that were thought to be reaches that do well, and no brainers that end up busting. Lots of people are wrong, and lots are right.

That is some interesting stuff. I bet there will be teams that want TUA leaking stuff about how bad his medical is.

 

Nah, the medical evaluations at the combine are very comprehensive and shared to/by all 32 teams.  No 'leaking' necessary. All teams will know everything. Every single player, all of them, are evaluated.

 

Here's relative snippets about medicals at the combine from an article about 6 years ago. Warning: even snipped, this is lengthy.

 

****************************************************************

 

"We break down the medical evaluation into two distinct segments: internal medical examinations and orthopedic examinations," Dr. Matava explained.

 

"During the internal medical exam, players are evaluated by team internists for cardiovascular, kidney, liver and pulmonary health. Part of this examination includes a battery of tests—such as blood work, EKGs and, for certain players, stress tests for their heart—in order to determine if there are any internal issues that might affect the player's ability to participate in the NFL."

 

"If a player has a history of problems, such as (high blood pressure), sickle cell anemia, diabetes or asthma, those conditions will be noted," Matava continued. "We also make note of their current condition and any treatments they are receiving. Then, we make recommendations to the team regarding that player's ability to play at the NFL level with these medical issues." Every internist receives the opportunity to see every player, but at least one internist evaluates every prospect.

 

"If a player is healthy, the evaluating internist will compile a general health report which is shared with the other teams. Once the medical evaluations are complete, each player is given an internal medicine grade that can be somewhat unique for each team. This grade then gets factored into their overall medical grade. This is given to the team's general manager and head coach to be used when they make draft decisions."

 

"The orthopedic evaluations are performed in a similar fashion (as the internal medicine exams)," Matava noted. "There are six exam rooms, and each exam room has six teams represented within it. Players will go to each room and will undergo an orthopedic history and exam, have his X-rays and other imaging studies reviewed and have their information presented to the other doctors in the room."

 

Additionally, linemen receive an X-ray of their lumbar spine—the only mandatory X-ray—to make sure they do not have a vertebral stress fracture.

 

"Each team compiles an orthopedist grade based on the players' history of injuries, previous surgeries, current physical examination and current X-ray(s) and MRI(s)," Matava clarified.

"Some players will have a very healthy orthopedic grade, but their internal medicine grade might be low because of a medical condition. However, it is more common that a player's internal medicine grade is very high, but they've had significant orthopedic problems that affect their overall medical grade."

 

"All the X-rays and test results are shared with all of the medical teams, and NFLPS members will occasionally communicate other findings," Matava explained. "However, each team has their own grading scale for players, and each medical team shares their grades with their general managers and coaches."

 

"I'm biased, but I think the medical side is the most important aspect of the combine because teams can't get this kind of information about a player at any other time in the pre-draft process," Matava offered.

 

"A team can always ask a guy to do extra bench presses, run the 40-yard dash or have more interviews with coaches, but you are never going to get all of these medical specialists in one room together with this type of comprehensive medical assessment again."
