Top 5 NFL draft qbs

Recommended Posts

Honestly all of the question marks are legit. Tua has the tangibles, and the mind to compete in the NFL, but that injury history...

 

If it weren’t for all the injuries he would be the favorite for #1 overall. To survive this game, he’s gotta learn to take care of his body on the field and throw the ball away.

 

The question has to be asked on how Burrow jumped so high after one year. Was it Joe Brady? The 9 other players on offense who will be drafted? He won’t be throwing at the combine either this week.

If i am the Bengals I would draft Young and walk away from Burrows unless I am offered a haul of draft picks.  He doesnt play at the Senior Bowl.  Now he wont throw at the combine.

He has no incentive to do it, especially since the things that he's best at are not on display there and the things that he's worst at(arm strength) is on display and in direct comparison with 3 other players with much better arm-strengths. He's the consensus no. 1 pick and he won't lose that position even if he did nothing until the draft. 

 

Bengals would be crazy to pass on Burrow.

Why would they b crazy?  He has one year.....one-year of great tape.  He just screams bust to me.  I really believe he didnt want go to the Senior Bowl because he wouldnt stand out.   Go for Young and u get a super star. Burrows bust out and u have nothing.

Lets play a game.  NFL players first 4 years are average at best.  Now in his 5th  and contract year he lights it up and has a very good year.  Would u pay him millions as a free agent based on 1 lights out year?  A good example is Armstead for the Niners.  Why is Burrows any different?  And at least Armstead had played in the NFL;  Burrows has not even played one year.

His tape isn't that bad from 18. Why would someone who knows they will be #1 overall risk injury during a game he doesn't need to play in. The senior bowl are for guys who have a chance to raise their stock, how do you raise past #1? The reason Baker played in the senior bowl was because he wasn't seen as a first overall until the day of the draft. Even if they decide against Burrow they still need a QB so they would be way better off taking Herbert than Young.

Because Burrow is a great prospect at the most important position in football. Any player has some probability to bust(even Burrow and Chase Young). Burrow just had the best season of any QB in the history of college football. And he didn't do it against cupcake schedule. He did it against some of the best defenses in college football... Alabama, Florida, Auburn, Georgia, Clemson... and he destroyed all of them. He's shown incredible accuracy at all areas of the field, he showed exceptional pocket presence and movement ability both in the pocket and out of structure while leaving the pocket, he has the best timing and anticipation I've seen recently by any QB coming into the draft. He's the real deal IMO.

Raise their stock?? Only the media is saying Burrows is the #1 pick.  U dont know if organizations have him locked in as the #1 pick. Those same scouts u cite as having him as the #1 pick, say his 2018 tape is 3r to 4th round material.

His 2018 season was not bad. He had some great games back then too. He just didn't have the game to game consistency. This year he had it, which is what you want to see - improvements. 

 

Also I do NOT accept that comparison. Those situations are nothing alike. NFL is not college, 2 years are not 4 years. QB is not DL. 27 year olds are not 22 year olds.

I am not at all diminishing his accomplishments.  What he and a loaded LSU team did was historical.  I just think it was one of those seasons when all the stars aligned and nothing went wrong.  I just dont think it will b duplicated when it comes to Burrows.  I do think as the draft gets closers, we will see more skeptics come out of the wood work.  Just a feeling

I like him... he has almost everything. He gets a bit panicky under pressure. Not a bit actually... a lot. This is his main problem. He turns his back to the defense and tries to spin his way out of pressure and it goes badly a lot. He's not a statue and has some movement, but IMO off-structure plays are not going to be hallmark of his play. He will have to succeed mostly from the pocket. He'a a talented thrower of the football, though... might have the strongest arm in the class.

In some ways he may b the cleanest.  I think if a team can dissect his brain and fix how he plays under pressure, he could go really high.  He would b a big fit with the Colts strong O line.

Eason is a bigger question mark to me then Love. All I see is a big arm. That doesn’t cut it.

Hmmmmm....he is big and athletic.  Probably the best arm.  The biggest concerns is folding under prrssure.  Like u have always said, we can coach him up.

I also think people forget his marijuana incident. That is concerning to me as the article points out.  For a non qb,it really is not that big of a deal,, for a qb it is.

Isn’t Carolinas HC the former LSU OC... Maybe CAROLINA makes a play for him...


Joe Brady is the new OC for Panthers under Matt Rhule, the new HC, same position as LSU but at the NFL level

The only way the Bengals don't take Joe Burrow is if they are dead set on throwing away the 2020 season and tanking for Trevor. If you could get a team like Carolina to trade their 1st this year and at least a couple of other first round picks. Then maybe you consider it, but there is no guarantee that you'll be back at 1 next year. There is no such thing as a "sure thing". No matter who you draft there are going to be questions but Joe Burrow looks like a legit NFL QB. I would be hard pressed to pass that up!

Carolina's the team I see "tanking for Trevor".  They draft the best players they can this year that aren't QB's; they keep Cam Newton for his last year on his contract, cross their fingers he can play 8 games without getting hurt, and bingo, they can wind up with Trevor, who's playing just a couple/few hours down the road from Charlotte.

If I were running Carolina and wanted to tank there is no way Cam Newton would be on my roster and I would probably look to see what I could get for Christian McCaffery. If you have a healthy Cam Newton and Christian McCaffery I think that you would win too many games to get the number one pick. I could be dead wrong but if the goal was to get Trevor Lawrence next year I wouldn't let Cam Newton see the field again.

Herbert, Eason, and Love have better arms then Burrow. It would be pretty dumb to do drills. It would only hurt his stock seeing it side by side against those three.

There seems to be some legitimacy thst Carolina is trying to move up to that number pick. I can believe this one since Joe Brady is at Carolina now. Will the Bengals move down. That would be really bad for the colts. Almost guarantees we wouldn’t get a QB in the first.

It won’t be the end of the world as long as talent is added and the QB position is addressed. 
 

I look at 2 teams that got a WR in the first 5 picks and a QB within the first 3 picks in Round 2 - AJ Green and Dalton, and Amari Cooper and Derek Carr. If they’d gone to better run organizations, I feel their W-L records could have been better. So, getting a guy you still like in Round 2 is not the end of the world.

 

Plus, if there’s a guy you like at No.34, would it really hurt us to give up a 5th rounder to move from 34 to 32 to clinch a 5th year option on a guy you like? Does that suddenly make him better because he’s now not a 2nd round guy?

 

If you’ve a talented roster, good GM and HC, and add a talented enough QB, you can win, even if it’s not in the Top 13 picks.

McShay just told Rich E. that he doesn’t have confidence in any of the QBs outside of Burrows and Tua.  They’re all projects.

I bet if he was asked the same question every year he would only have confidence in the top  2. This is nothing new with analysts every draft.

    • I'm sorry,  I've said this before,  but I see you added more material here and you've completed misunderstood this.   First,  there are no writers for the on-air talent.   None.   The talent writes what they want to say.   I even contacted a friend who works at ESPN for the last 30 years.   He says all on-air talent writes what they say -- period.   And thre is no company position on various issues.   So, for example, on al the debate shows you talked about,  the hosts say what they want.   No writer writes what to say for them.      Here's what your article is talking about.   The company is clearly on the liberal side.   They've hired in the past a bunch of Conservatives who wanted to say whatever they wanted to say.  Mostly about politics in the real world.   The name Curt Schilling might be familiar.   He had been warned repeatedly about talking about real world politics that have nothing to do with sports.   He kept doing it and basically dared the company to do something.   He thought they wouldn't.   They did and eventually he was let go.      ESPN is trying to stay away as best as they can from real world politics.   If oyu want to point to Conservative political views,  fine, you'll get no argument from me.   SPOILER ALERT:  That's going to take a huge hit on Wednesday, 5/27,  in the aftermath of the dead black man in Minneapolis and the black man in New York who a white woman called the politce on and lied about what he was doing (caught lying on tape), as well as the jogger in Georgia who was shot and killed months ago and the video has now surfaced.  Outraged professional athletes are now loudly speaking out.    That means ESPN is going to talk about the real world even thought most of their viewers may not like it.   But you have to cover what the athletes are doing and saying.   Many people here (most?) think ESPN doesn't like Jim Irsay and the Colts.   Do certain anchors, hosts, reporters have issues with us?    Maybe,  possibly.    But there is no corporate position on Irsay or the Colts.  All on-air talent is free to say whatever they want to say.   No one tells on-air talent what to say when it comes to day-to-day sports.   To be clear,  ESPN doesn't want anyone trashing the sports they cover or hurting the professinal relationships.   If you're going to attack the commissiner of a sport,  then you had better have more than just an opionion.   You better have some substance to back it up.    Former NBA Commish David Stern was legendary for calling up the head of ESPN and SCREAMING about things he heard said about the NBA on ESPN that he didn't like.     You wrote that there's plenty of things on the internet to support your view.   Please feel free to take another crack at it,  because the first article doesn't support your position.    It's taking about something different,  how ESPN doesn't want the real world of politics infringing on the day to day coverage of sports.   Some things can't be stopped.   More women in pro sports.   Gays in sports.   How athletes react to real world injustice.    But if Curt Schilling wants to spew hate about Muslims, which he did,  or talk about transgender bathroom laws,  that's going to lead to the unemployment line, which it did. What do those issues have to do with sports?   Last thought:   I try as often as I can to explain the world of the media to people here.   30 years in the business so I should be able to to.   Frankly,  I take no pleasure in strongly opposing your views here.   In fact, no one is more surprised than me.   Because, quite honestly,  I think you've had an incredibly long stretch of really top notch posts for many months here.    I think you've seriously rasied your game and I find myself in agreement with many of your views.    And if I haven't given you a ton of likes then shame on me.   I try to reward good posting.  I find your posts smart and well reasoned.   I enjoy reading your views.    And then we hit this thread.   And I did a double-take when I saw who posted about the media.  So please take this as the compliment that it is intended.   I'm a fan of yours.   Just not here on this particular subject.   If you have other comments, or questions,  I'm happy to continue this discussion....   my apologies for the length of ths post.   Just so much to respond to.   NCF
    • He is allowed his opinion just like the rest of us. Based on where we are, I think he will be way off the mark.    But this will be a very strange season if it happens, so who knows.    We have all been watching this stupid league for many years and we should know not to take anything for granted.   Other team improve as well, you know.   I'm hoping for top 10 though.
    • I agree. Just the maturity of all the Rookies and second year players should make a significant difference. With a couple of exceptions, the Starting D was pretty darn young by the end of the season. 
    • Silly nonsense.   Very disappointing.   USA Today used to be really good.   Even if you knew nothing about the Colts, you could know this.    We spent 7 of 10 2019 draft picks on defense.   It's not unreasaonble to expect most if not all of them to be better.   The question is how much?   But Rock and Okereke and Willis are starters.   Benagu, Tell, should be key reserves.   Speed and Green to ST's.     So, the defense SHOULD be better on that alone.   And I'm almost positive I read something this off-season about a trade for Buckner, and some free agent signing's including Rhodes.   Plus the return of a healthy Turay.   That's a lot of important faces on that side of the ball.   You don't need to be a rocket scientist to be able to predict we should be a better defense.  The only question is.....    now much better?  
    • Barring something completely unexpected,   Blackmon is going to be mostly a non-factor, even if he somehow manages to get on the field.    First, he won't have played for roughly 9-10 months.  Second,  because of injury,  no rookie camps in the spring.    No summer camp, pre-season camp and missing the first part of the season.    So, he'll have a few weeks of practice and you expect him to be a factor right away?    It's among the longest of long shots.   Could it happen?   Long shot.   A one percent chance, maybe two.   Odds are if he plays, he'll be OK but nothing special.    The year to expect Blackmon to show something is 2021.   His rehab and practice time should be back to normal.   Sorry.
