He plays tonight in San Antonio against our beloved Texas Longhorns, doubt he approaches performance of Teddy in his bowl game but that is why they play the game. That said, I believe he returns to Oregon for his Junior season.

So am I. I hope he does reconsider. It'd make me feel better with the #1 pick.

Yep! From the same website as the OP linked to:

Quote:
12/19/2013 - Mariota confirms he will return to Oregon...Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota confirmed he intends to return to the team for at least one more season after it was learned he had requested his grade from the NFL Advisory Committee. Oregon's senior associate athletic director, Craig Pintens, said Mariota requested the grade following the Ducks' victory over Oregon State on Nov. 29. Mariota told 750 The Game radio in Portland, "To clear any confusion, I'm very blessed and thankful to come back."

He has tools. But he is not nearly as NFL ready as Bridgewater or Mettenberger. I would have him rated as the #3 QB in this draft.

Default Re: Mariota Reconsiders Entering the Draft

He'll probably stay in school, but Mariota entering the draft would make me heavily lean towards the Clowney->Mettenberger draft plan due to more QBs being available before Zach.

Default Re: Mariota Reconsiders Entering the Draft

Watching his bowl game right now. God this kid is fast! I don't Luke his delivery speed and how he would rather just take off and run if his first and second option isn't there. Not as fluid in the pocket as Teddy B IMO.

his physical tools are great but he's a total project. doesn't take snaps under center and doesn't run a pro run or pass offense.

You know who else was NFL ready? Kareem Jackson. I know, makes no difference now, but every time I hear that phrase, I cringe.

As for the topic at hand, if you're going to spend a #1 overall pick on a QB, I want the guy who has the tools to be a superstar (especially upstairs). I don't see that in Bridgewater. I mean, he's a nice QB, but I just don't see superstar in his future. I, like anyone else here, could be wrong, of course. But I'd rather have Mariota.

Bridgewater would be the 4th or 5th best QB in next year's draft.

The more you watch of Mariota the more one can appreciate Bridgewater ability to pick apart a secondary with his arm not his legs.

Default Re: Mariota Reconsiders Entering the Draft

Mariota is reminding me of Kaepernick & RG3. Put ten in the box and he won't be as effective. From the limited amount I've watched them both, I think Bridgewater is the superior QB.

Default Re: Mariota Reconsiders Entering the Draft

Mariota is elusive in the open field. My concern is how many licks will it take from NFL backers before he starts breaking up?

Always take the guy who can read the defense and,make the necessary adjustments.

LOL saying there would be 4 or 5 better QBs other than Teddy B in next year's draft is flat out ignorant.

Good comparison. I hate the extra second in the release, Teddy has a real quick release.

I'm seeing too many called runs. It's not that he's making one read then running, but they're calling a lot of read options, & draws for him.

He runs high too, that's a big target for an NFL safety running full speed to lay the wood.

Default Re: Mariota

He has tools to work with. They're just really hard to evaluate in this Oregon offense. Its much easier to evaluate Teddy, Murray, and some of the other guys in this draft. Even Boyd is a lot easier project. He could turn into a great QB at the next level or a complete bust from what I've seen from him.
