Mariota
 
Nov 29th playing Oregon State and at half time has thrown for 107 yds 6/10 10.7 and two INTS no TDs. 17-17. Looking pretty rough so far.

very negative game for his draft stock suggesting it would be in his best interest to return for his Junior season, seek a national championship & earn his degree!

on the flip side there is some outstanding talent on display. Oregon CB, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is the closest corner to Darrel Revis I've seen in awhile. Disruptive, excellent & physical tackler, playmaker, plus closing speed & position. I think he could crack the top 10.

Oregon State WR Brandon Crooks is amazing slot receiver with all the tools. Strength for size, speed & quickness with a suddenness to separate, a poor mans Tavon Austin. Love that OSU RB Terron Ward, looks like Ray Rice, 5070 205 balance, power, heart. Was wondering if related to Derek Ward but not his brother did play @ Oregon & now safety with Cleveland Browns.

Also should mention local talent, WR Josh Huff could push Posey for 3rd WR on Texan roster & of course DeAnthony Thomas, super elite returner & change of pace RB.

Ok he finally passes for a TD 10/16 159 yds 9.9 and looked pretty good this drive.

It's almost like teams are starting to figure Mariota out, which doesn't bode well for the NFL. The NFL figures you out much more quickly.

Seems like a few highly thought of college QBs need to go back into the oven for more cooking before coming out to the pros. They likely won't, but...

Contrary to popular belief they do. Their NFL evaluation is usually the determining factor. Without 30 college starts or more it's commonly a 3rd rd grade or later.

Many of them need to. Guys like Mariota, Hundley, and Manziel are not ready and need more seasoning. However, because of the desperate need for QB's in the league they are getting 1st round grades and that's why they might declare.

Bridgewater is the only non-senior QB who I think has nothing to gain by going back for another year.

Bridgewater, not a fan of his. He played pretty average at best in a game I watched the Houston Cougars barely lose 20-13 at Louisville a few weeks back. I don't recall the Cougars ever being known for their defense either.

They may be getting 1st rd draft grades from media but not necessarily from the NFL. Especially if they have less than 30 college starts.

Only (3) red shirt Sophomore have declared for the draft, Michael Vick, Tommy Maddox and Todd Marinovich.

Yikes. That worked out well.

Mariota is staying in school, which probably makes Carr the top quarterback prospect after Bridgewater, who will probably go with the #1 pick.

Hopefully, Bridge goes #1 to Cleveland after a gigantic trade to Houston.

I think Cleveland is going to end up with JFF, and whoever gets the number 1 pick will take Bridgewater, be it the Texans or Jags.

Well he's returning to school according to cbs sports

Texian 12-03-2013 06:23 PM

Re: Mariota
 
Mariota is is in a very similar position that Barkley was two years ago. The mere fact of him returning school already has the media making him better than he is. This is true of most media hyped QBs who return to school.
