I think he has a chance to be as good as Schaub was in 2009 and in my mind that's good enough to win a SB. How many/of the QB's in this draft have a chance to be as good as 2009 Scaub. 1 probably be better but I wouldn't bet on any of them.
That's a fair assessment. I agree that his mental makeup translates to the pros very well, which is why I think he will have a long NFL career.
Where we disagree is that I do not think that his physical skill set translates very well.
I think he would make a great backup because he could probably learn the intricacies of any system fairly quickly, he has the necessary skills to come into the game in a pinch if need be, but I don't believe he is talented enough to be a starting QB. I would be all for giving him a shot to prove me wrong. He seems like the kind of guy who would put more than his fair share of the work in, but I think his ceiling lies somewhere below good Schaub and above Keenum's.
