Uh... wow, thanks.
I like how some of these sites grades as As, or 5s
Then some give grades
Looking at those, I think, gives you a clearer picture of how it's as much about personal preference once you get to a certain level. These QBs for instance, several of them get the same grade, which is more likely the case. One team will weigh certain things higher than another team so one team might have Bortles as the best QB in this draft & another might have Manziel.
I don't like how some of these sites rank them. It makes joe blow think that so&so is the best QB & has been the best QB since they stopped playing football & yada, yada, yada... as if Mike Mayock ever drafted a QB to play for an NFL team.
In a draft like this, you should expect a QB with a first round grade to drop out of the first, maybe even to the third through no fault of his own, & that's true value. His chances of being a successful NFL QB is no less after falling to the 2nd or 3rd.
If I were a Teddybot, nothing could make me happier than knowing the Texans won't draft a QB with the #1 overall & my guy is falling into the second.
If he is who we think he is, it's going to show. Falling may even provide the motivation to be even better than he would have been.
