    Almost as if you are on the Nassib bandwagon

    Anyway, my question is how does this crop compare to next years (Bridgewater, Manziel, Boyd, guy from SJSU)??

    EJ Manuel has been a busy man. Doing a heavy media tour over past couple of days. Yesterday w/ Gruden, today w/ Fox spts. Soon to be in ATL.

    This is the sort of draft that you can wait on qb and likely get a nice developmental prospect one round later than you thought you would.
    The thing about Manuel that none of the other QB's in this draft have is his physical measurables. You can't teach size, speed and athleticism. If he played in a qb-friendly offense like this version of the WCO we are putting in I can see him being succesfull.

    3rd round though. We need to fill holes at Guard, OLB and Safety in the first 2 rounds.

    @MoveTheSticks During his career, E.J. Manuel has started 7 games against top 25 opponents. Stats: 6 TD's, 9 INT's (3-4 record)

    For those who often ask "Do QB's ever struggle at their Pro day?" - Well, EJ Manuel did today showing VG arm strength, but lacking accuracy.


    Not a good sign when throwing in shorts. Confirms what he showed on tape as well.

    I am shocked how many people seem to be hyping this guys. All the good talent here to me he just doesn't have it and it shows when he plays. He had very good #s dont get me wrong but this is a case of numbers not telling the truth IMO.

    The last thing I care about is a guy's "measurables" if he isn't accurate. I get that you can't teach size, speed or athleticism, but I also don't think you can teach accuracy. Even though he threw at a 68% clip in college, all I hear is that he's not very accurate.

    Do not want another inaccurate QB. Don't care how physically imposing he may be.

    I'm not actually a huge Manuel guy and I think he's a project who will need a couple years to be ready. I do think he is one of the better prospects in a pretty weak qb class. This guy named Mike Mayock says Manuel is the 2nd best QB in this year's draft:

    I guess my issue is that just because he's the 2nd best (or even the best) QB prospect in this class, I just think this class is so weak it's like the tallest midget in the freak show. I never understood the rationale that since we need to fill a hole, that we should take a flier on the best player at a position in an awful class. I don't see any of these guys being big time QBs, so why jeopardize passing on an OLB or Olineman or RB who could be a stud for us for years? Who knows, you could find that diamond in the rough, but we can't gamble in the hopes that we pick THE right guy.

    Boyd is far from the real deal or a sure thing. He has a lot to prove this year.
