    Then you may as well say you wouldn't take him...

    He's not going to be available beyond round 2.


    I really want to see who succeeds among this group of QB's. They all have flaws.

    Geno - Decisions/Accuracy suck at times
    Nassib - ZERO accuracy beyond 20 yards. Not a great demeanor on field
    Glennon - Inability to sidestep a rush, free runners will happen in NFL
    Wilson - Decisions suck. WOrst of the entire group
    EJ Manuel - Intermediate throws not good

    i guess it comes down to which flaws are most correctable, and which guys are most willing to work at correcting them. i am going on record that i like nassib, we've seen first hand with sanchez that it's so difficult to 'fix' accuracy issues within 20 yards and those are the throws that are made most often. in a wco i'll take nassib and work on completing longer throws. also read he's a film junkie and also seems to have enough arm strength to make longer throws.

    Glad you figured out my intent with my comment. You can add all of the other players you just listed to my comment as well.

    Plus Nassib has 10 1/4 inch hands , which is pretty big, compared to Geno Smith 9 1/2 inch hands. Smith is also one inch taller so by comparison Smiths hands are pretty small which explains why he struggled in cold weather and had issues holding onto the ball. Generally speaking, guys with bigger hands can improve their arm strength much easier than guys with smaller hands.

    If the GM is going to look to the coach for which QB to take - it will be to Morningwhig before Rex.

    What were the big knocks on Kaepernick and Wilson?

    not sure if i like this or not??
    I don't see this guy ever being a good passer in the pros. I just didn't like the way he threw in college, think he relied on his legs too much and his legs won't translate to the NFL the ways others have. Not fast or shifty enough.

    Here are some negatives regarding Kaepernick:

    "I question his ability to read a defense. He is too careless with his passes. The stats may not back that thought up, but he turns the ball over far to often in the red zone. A college red zone is as close to a simulation to the NFL as you're going to find. Windows are small and decisions have to be made quickly."

    "Mechanically, his throwing motion has been a widely discussed issue. His windup in his throwing motion isn't as bad as some have made it out to be, it certainly isn't of the Byron Leftwich variety, but it is there."

    "Never has had to read progressions. If first receiver isn't open, he always pulls it down.
    Throwing release is not smooth and a bit long
    Footwork is all over the place
    Cannot fit the ball into tight spaces with regularity
    Does not throw a good deep ball
    Does not put good touch on his passes
    Not close to NFL Ready"
