Some teams (especially ourselves) have been late to the party with regards to finding a QB who has a good skillset for the modern league.
Either way, I definately don't want to be burning a 1st round pick at this point on a QB. We'll see how Case does here on out, and then assess the situation at the end of the year when we know if his early outstanding play is just due to defenses being caught out, or whether he really is a starter in the NFL.
People keep saying the bolded...but the best qb's in the league are still pocket passers..
hell, even the guys who can run are trying to curb their impulses b/c they know you're not gonna be able to make a living long term doing that as RG3 found out last year & what Wilson knew from the jump.
The only thing that's changing is teams are becoming more open minded when it comes to taking on the atypical qb from a measureables standpoint b/c they know they may have a chance to win with them..... early on anyway.
