  1. Will Grier

    Wil Grier is rising up as a player who can make it to the second round. He is having an unbelievable season. Since I think our best chance at a starting QB will be via FA or trade this offseason, I wouldn't mind finding someone in the second or third round. https://www.fanragsports.com/will-to-win-will-grier-makes-his-nfl-draft-case/amp/
  2. Brett Hundley

    Hundley and Brissett both looking bad today. We need as many Qb trade/fa options as possible at this point.
  3. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    Rosen and Darnold will still go top 3 each. But they are no longer can't miss picks, and I think teams will be able to trade up for them. Lamar Jackson playing his way into the top 10. Mayfield playing his way into the first round. Josh Allen playing his way into the second round....maybe third at this rate. Falk's game against Cal ruined him, regardless of how good he looks the rest of the way. His negatives were exposed tremendously. He'll be a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
  4. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    I forget who said it, but some scout or gm once said that 99.9% of draft picks are picked knowing that they need development. They really look at the tools over production, and then the interview process pre draft is the make or break for menta capacity and character.
  5. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    Not set in stome that 5 go. And scouts look at measurables and projection more than college production, especially with an undersized spread offense type qb. I think Mayfield is a second round pick.
  6. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    Who the Jets pick is a cursed bunch of misery. Fact doesn't change that Ohio State has a talented COLLEGE defense that is more complex than most college systems. Don't compare individual players in the NFL to what I'm comparing in college.
  7. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    No not you, but a lot of people have questioned it.
  8. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    I prefer a taller QB too to be honest. Im looking at Mayfield for us if hes there in the second. Either way, as the analysis says his arm strength is above average and can drive passes in. So no red flag there.
  9. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    Agreed, and his arm is plenty strong. I've seen him throw 40-50 yard bombs on a dime consistently. He also has one of the highest long range completion percentages and amount of completions in all of football.

    https://www.diehards.com/oklahoma/rivals-names-baker-mayfield-college-footballs-midseason-fearless-leader/amp “This award goes to the best pure leader in college football and there is no better leader than Mayfield, who reminds me a lot of a Brett Favre – (without the cannon), Aaron Rodgers-type who will run through a wall for his team and leads by example. NFL scouts take notice; stop sleeping on Mayfield.”
  11. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2739597-matt-millers-scouting-notebook-can-baker-mayfield-be-a-franchise-nfl-qb He might not be a natural fit for every offense, but if you look at the most successful young quarterbacks in the NFL this season (Watson, Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Dak Prescott), we see offenses that have been adjusted to fit their strengths. You can do that with Mayfield. His underneath accuracy hasn't shown up as a strength, but his mobility and toughness would work with Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco or John Morton and the New York Jets. He's athletic enough to run the scheme Tyrod Taylor runs in Buffalo. His downfield passing ability would even be a fit for Sean Payton in New Orleans. Compared to the much-hyped 2018 quarterback class, where does Mayfield fit in? Said one scout, "I haven't studied them all yet, but I'd take [Baker] over [Wyoming's] Josh Allen. Don't underestimate the kid." The three things I look for first when evaluating a quarterback are accuracy, decision-making and toughness. Mayfield has shown all three at a high level every chance he's had on the field in college. Some teams may overthink this scouting report, but mine will say that Mayfield is a franchise-caliber quarterback.
  12. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    I think the kids a gamer, but conference historically is bad at defense. In comparison it is worse than pac-12 (Darnold/Rosen). However, how he carved up that Ohio State defense was a big test that he aced. The passes batted down and durability haven't been an issue in the college. The fear is in the NFL, the physical nature of each defensive opponent, and how that translates to his size. Look, its not a problem for Brees and Wilson. If you can ball, you make it work. I love the kids passion. Seems to fit the kind of player Mac and Bowles are bringing in now, fiery, ultra-competitive guys who are alphas. We'll see. I just feel that Mac being a true scout deep down loves the prototypical size etc of 6'3 + type of quarterback.
  13. QB: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

    Plays in a conference that doesn't play defense, which begs the question can/will he be able to read defenses? Lack of height will create trouble making passes. Lack of size is a durability concern. I'm not saying I wouldn't draft him. But those are the knocks. The Ohio State game I think definitely was huge for him ripping apart a defense with NFL talent and a former NFL HC as their dc.

    If we could be lucky enough to draft a LT in the 1st and Baker in the 2nd, we'd have a real nice heist on our hands.

    It's crazy that if Mayfield was a couple of inches taller he'd be the #1 pick.
