"Mark gives us the best chance to win"
where the jets pick, this guy glennon almost needs to be te second coming of roethlisberger. the problem is really tall qb's typically aren't mobile. will he last getting sacked 11 times?
I'm always hesitant with guys who do not distinguish themselves as great players in college and get drafted high or suddenly rise in the draft because of physical measurables such as height or combine work.
Only seen Glennon play a couple times, was not impressed. All of the rookie QBs succeeding this season (Luck, RG3, Wilson) were not "raw" or "needs to be more polished" type prospects. Maybe Tannehill was and he is having a small measure of success (but realistically is having a rookie year not all that different than Mark did). When I think of a guy like Glennon, I cannot help but think of Gabbert and Locker, two mediocre college players who had "all the physical tools" and just "needed to be developed properly."
What an earth makes any Jet fan think we have coaching staff to handle a raw prospect like that at the game's most important position?
Out of all the QB's coming out, Tyler Wilson looks the best to me, he's got a live arm and a quick release.
His measurables are basically ideal: 6'6 235...cannon for an arm...deceptively athletic.
Compare that to Wilson. Some think Wilson will be lucky to measure in at 6'2. Wilson has a good arm, but not an "elite" arm like Glennon possesses.
And Wilson's flaws basically mirror Glennon's. Footwork and questionable accurracy. Things that can be corrected with the proper coaching. Which you can bet your ass won't be administered by Cavanaugh or Sparano next year.
Personally, I like Glennon in one scenario and Wilson in another.
Glennon is pretty much expected to rise into the Top 15 post senior bowl/combine. So if we decide to go in that direction, I'm all for taking him in the 12-16 area where we will most likely end up picking.
If we decide to go in another direction in the 1st round (OLB, OL, etc), then I'd want to go with someone like Wilson or Nassib in the 2nd round.
This team needs to add a young QB come draft day anyway you slice it. And I'm not just talking about some 6th/7th round pick whose longterm potential is a solid backup. This team needs to draft a QB within the first 3 rounds. A kid who has the potential to be at least a viable starter in this league.
I want to draft 2 of em in 2013 and let the chips fall where they may. Of those 5 i want Bray in the 2nd and Renfree in the 5th. Bray needs time, but I don't think Renfree does. Bray's upside is much higher. Both the guys i want are above 6'3" and 220 lbs.
I would definitely consider drafting Glennon, could be good.
Height isn't the issue. Drew Brees is 6' and most people would take him in a heart beat. On the next QB drafted by us I'd like to see a Cam Newton, Mathew Stafford, Jay Cutler, RG3, Andrew Luck types. All those guys contributed from day one. It is worth waiting for.
If you put Glennon on USC, what do you think his numbers will be like. he did not play with anybody that will be drafted this year or even invited to a NFL camp this year or next.
He is not ready to start in the NFL and I think his value is mid 20s.
