Default Re: Stats for perspective

Would he not be drafted ahead of around 10 current starting NFL QBs? How many 1st round QBs end up being busts instead of franchise QBs anyways?

For perspective - Keenum's 2013 stats if he were to perform at 90% of his first 2 games for the remaining 8:
2853 yards, 18 tds 8 ints (1 int per game remaining)

for a full 16 game season:
4565 yards, 28 tds 12 ints (1 int per game not played)

At 100% for a 16 game season he'd be considered a top 5 QB:
5136 yards, 32 tds 0 ints

There isn't an Andrew Luck, RGIII, Cam Newton, Matt Stafford... in this draft that I can see. There's more Andy Dalton, Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert & Alex Smiths. Solid but not sure things.

Why not plug a sure hole with the high pick and take a flyer on a QB in the 2nd or 3rd rounds to keep Keenum competing? He isn't going to reach the numbers I posted but... Seems like no matter what Keenum does he'll always be doubted because of his draft status.
I could care less about his draft status. This is a QB driven league. You better dam well make sure you have a good one. Case has a long way to go. People are jumping the gun here. Yes he's looked really good. Let's see how it plays out before we Declare him the next Drew Bree's. If he can show the rest of the season he can not only play well but can carry this team to victories then yes we have found out franchise QB. If he just plays well then no we need to keep looking.
