I honestly think he's looking past the 1st 3 guys unless 1 of them drops to around 25 or so.
I don't think Grapalo will be there. Someone's gonna reach & get him late in the 1st. My bet on the 2nd tier qb he's targeting is either Mettenberger or Savage. Mettenberger b/c there won't be any pressure there to put him in right away b/c of his late injury, but the potential is definitely there.
& prior to BoB mentioning him, I hadn't heard anything about a Tom Savage.....from anyone. Which tells me he's firmly entrenched as a 2nd round & below prospect that most likely will be there 2:1 when the texans come up.
I ain't no one but did mock Savage several months ago, great size & interesting story of changing colleges & did not play for one he did go to. Not a 1st or 2nd day selection and possibly a 7th or UDFA.
I do like Garoppolo in 2nd but think Manziel is 1-1 barring a trade.
