That’s a pretty self assured statement there haha. On a side note it does seem like he is picking up some steam lately.... If J love is not available then maybe him at 34?

QUARTERBACK WATCH: Talked to a director of player personnel last night who said Jacob Eason will leave here a top 15 pick. #Bucs are a natural fit. #Colts could look at QBs in Round 1. And don't rule out trades up the board.

haha This is great! Lol

 

Honestly though, he has a lot of talent, just needs a bit of refinement. If Love isn’t at 34, he wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize at all

There is a very real possibility neither will be at 34. Don't forget all of the teams after us who are going to need a QB including NE. You don't wait on a QB, its one position that will always be overdrafted because it is the most important position on the team. The QB by far will win you more games single handedly than any other position. I understand the love for a guy like Kinlaw but he won't turn us from 7-9 to 11-5 and the playoffs no matter how good he is.

If a team can get this Eason, he would be a great addition.

 

If it's the Eason who spins around to his left every time there is pressure, then no thanks.

Media confronted him about his problems with pressure and he tried spinning away off the podium... :P

I was going to say, did he turn his back to them before then making a bad answer?

Teams are going to reach for QBs this year, and they should. Unless you’re a team that has a good chance bad next year (Lions, Giants, Jets, Chargers, maybe Dolphins) you can’t afford to wait till next year for a QB. You’d have to mortgage your future for Lawrence or Fields.

 

Buffalo and Baltimore have set the new blueprint for drafting QB’s. You don’t have to get the elite top tier #QB1 in the draft. You take a guy that has some flaws but because he fits what you want to do with your offense, you can mask some of that. That’s why I believe the Eason hype. He’ll go to the Bucs round 1 and Love might go to the Colts. Flawed prospects who can flourish with the right teams are the new wave.

we need him in our offense ASAP, so he can unlearn whatever Matt Patricia was teaching him.

Here's other QBs:

 

 

 

 

Did Herbert ever confirm he did in fact speak to the Colts??

No, he's refusing to speak about who he's met with. If I'm not mistaken he did the same at the Senior Bowl too.

I hope our new QB likes handing the ball off more than a lot of the top ranked QBs do.  Please, no more hero gunslingers.

I agree, but it seems like we’ve lost a lot of games over the years because we couldn’t stop an average to below average QB on the other side!

I'd rather have a Brett Favre or Peyton Manning than a captain hand off lol

100% agree. QBs should be overdrafted. Especially if the team doing the “reaching” is a team that actually has a plan for them.

 

Like TJ Hous. said, how many of these guys are really busts, and how many just don’t go to the right system? We thought Tannehill was a bust but look what he’s done in Tennessee. Nick Foles was a Super Bowl MVP in Philly but looks lost in Jacksonville. 
 

You should always take a swing at the QB position. It just has to be calculated. We have a good coaching staff. All we have to do is find a QB that has what Reich wants and pull the trigger. I mean if Jacoby Brissett can go 7-9 with his teams, do we really think that Love, Herbert, or whoever can’t do better?

I don’t think I’ll be able to hide my disdain if we take Eason in the 1st. 

Let er rip. At least 40% of the fan base will display disdain no matter who the selection is.

    • Is this a joke? Lol Gates is as washed as they come. He can barely run anymore, strong pass. I’d take Walker over him.
    • More than me enjoying...  I know YOU enjoy them.   As for April, what happens is more info leaks out.   Clearly some of that (most if that?) is a smoke screen.   But sometimes good info gets out.   About guys like Mixon and Sweet and the big Miss State DL grabbed by Tennessee.  That information is always helpful.  Just things to keep an eye out for....   The key is having fun and don’t box yourself in!  
    • I just don't feel like anything changes come April. You know what the remaining needs are for the colts and where prospects were most likely land.   Strange. Draft calculate said it was equal value.    I mentioned Higgins can be a reach, but the draft is unpredictable. More teams go after Ts then IOL and there are a lot of good Ts in this draft. It's either Hurts or Gordon. I'm just not a fan of the other QBs and I feel we can still use his level of athletism instead of just having the QB ride the bench. Oline depth is a big need. We really don't have options if god forbid someone on the line gets hurt. Breeland is still a good option and we still have Doyle and Allie-Cox   Glad you enjoy my Mocks!
    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well.
