There are only 3 QB's in this draft that I can make an argument for putting it together and becoming a good NFL QB.
1. Glennon - Not only does he have the arm, but he also has a good release and that matters. I don't know if his mind is quick enough however, but I didn't know about Flacco in that regard either.
2. Nassib - EXCELLENT pocket feel. EXCELLENT release. Good arm, not great but the release being so quick is the best aspect. Not sure about his demeanor on field and I'm not sure about his deep ball or other touch throws.
3. EJ Manuel - Forget his senior bowl, I've liked him for a while now. Some of his positives I think will translate to the NFL VERY well. He's great at screens, unbelievably comfortable with a pass rush coming at him, and has a quick release. The negatives with him however are having to do with that 20 yard throw where he just sometimes short arms it.
Before the senior bowl I thought it, and now I continue to think it. EJ Manuel has a good shot at ending up being the best QB of this bunch. Simply because his best traits will translate so well.
I agree on Glennon and Manuel, moreso on Manuel as I've been a fan of him for a while. But I can't understand people still touting Nassib after the senior bowl. Forget the practices where he looked bad, in the game he looked so much out of place it wasnt even funny. His release is too long, he is too small and his arm gets weak under pressure. Reminds you of someone? Yes, Sanchez... now Im not saying both are the same but Nassib is not an NFL quarterback.
