questionable Hands, isn't a pure WR but is used more in the specialist role. Doesn't run the whole route tree . Yada yada yada.   Kid is built, has speed and is a football player, something the Jets don't have a lot of.

 

Gotcha, threw me off with the needs a stern hand thing.

 

Not a lot of guys with questionable hands succeed at the next level. Montgomery is definitely built, but I'll be surprised if he measures in at his listed 6'2. I'd take him somewhere late on day 2 or early on day three with the plan that he'll stick as a return guy and a specialist offensively and hope he develops into something more. Could be available in that range after a disappointing senior year.

Bryce Petty has made Trae Waynes look like Kyle Wilson today.  Enough said

He's a cover 2 CB playing in a man scheme with no ball skills.  The fact that that kid is considered by many as the best CB in the draft says all you need to know about the CB crop.

Kubiak + Melvin Gordon .... BAM!!! The kid runs like a Kubiak back, too....shows patience then BAM commits to the hole.

Id take him at 6

 unfortunatley kubiak is not interviewing until the ravens either win the superbowl or get knocked out of the playoffs.  hopefully we dont make a decision before that:

 

Gary Kubiak on interviews 'it's not time for that' says he told john harbaugh to tell teams that he's busy coaching ravens' offense

I'm incredibly impressed with Petty, he's shredding Michigan St. Arent they suppose to be a good defensive team?

 

Yes they are.  That's why what Petty is doing is so impressive.  If he was shredding Tex A&M or

W. Va you could doubt his numbers because both of those teams stink defensively

Charles Davis from NFL.com wrote this about Petty back in late November:

 

 

I think Petty remains the top senior QB in the game and will test very well at the NFL Scouting Combine. His intelligence is going to shine through there, too. The Bears' QB is a big, thick guy with plenty of arm -- I don't think that will be an issue at all in his draft evaluation. He's certainly not the most impressive runner in the game, but his athleticism will surprise some people. That part of his game is underrated. His career production is off the charts, with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 56:8. When it comes to his intangibles, everyone in the Baylor community vouches for them, and I've been very impressed with his character.

 

This season has been a trying one at times for Petty, as he acknowledged this week. After he broke out last season, the expectation for him this year was to be a top Heisman candidate and to emerge as a likely first-round pick. He might not totally be matching that hype, but I still think this has been a really good season for him, and it's highlighted his toughness, which is overlooked too often. Petty broke two transverse processes in his back in Week 1 and played through a good portion of the game. He sat out one game and went back to putting up big numbers in Baylor's next contest (at Buffalo). That's something NFL teams will respect.

 

As for Briles' belief that Petty will be the best QB in the draft, we'll have to wait and see who his competition is for that title. If UCLA's Brett Hundley, Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Florida State's Jameis Winston (all underclassmen) declare for the draft, I expect all of them to be rated ahead of Petty as we begin the evaluation process in the offseason.

 

That said, it will be interesting to see Petty go through that process, because I think he has the potential to rise, as Bortles did. Petty is a better-known commodity this season than Bortles was last season, but Bortles certainly wasn't being discussed as a potential top-five pick a year ago. I think Petty will go through the process and make people sit back and think, "I like this kid."

 

How much will they like him? That's what I can't wait to find out.

Connor Cook should come out . His college game isn't going to get much better, but he needs a pro strength & conditioning program and to sit on the bench and learn the pro game from a quality offensive coordinator.

 

Kid is not ready to start at the pro level but he's ready to be developed at the pro level  learning the speed of the players in practice .

they are nothing alike other than both being black.

 

They are both big QB's in the pocket and hard to sack. Both bail out after the first read. They even run similarly. It has nothing to do with being black. Winston's release is totally different - but other than that they are the exact same player.
