Basically, these guys' career's don't last. The only guy I can see breaking that rule is Cam because he's built like a tank. But even then, the biggest trees fall the hardest. Either way, this dude is fast as hell. If you could get 4 years out of him it might be enough for 1 ship. This dude is gonna be tough to stop in the NFL if his passing game steps up.

I think he'd make a great Safety.

Mariota looks like his leg is about to turn into concrete. Dude definitely needs another year at Oregon.

Yup. Have you ever stood next to a chiseled NFL defender? I imagine getting hit by them doesn't tickle and a lot of young guys question their career choice after a couple of snot bubble inducing shots

Living in Houston for a while now, I've had the pleasure of having an Adrian Peterson sighting. I'm not short (6'0"), but AP literally towered over me and ESPN has him listed at just 6'1".

He also turned my hand into jello when he shook it. AP is about as jacked as a strong safety I imagine, and I would have hated if he hit me full speed. So I can imagine what you're referring to and don't think I would choose a career path where I constantly put myself into those type guys line of sight.

You mean like Mack reiterating he was staying on as the HC at Texas? His answers will depend on who is asking the question and what he believes they want to hear. He's a politician.

First off, I said that he would be the 4th or 5th best, which means that 3 or 4 QBs would be better than him. The inability to parse that statement correctly would more aptly be termed as ignorance. As for the 3 or 4 QBs that I would put above him from next year's draft:

Winston
Hundley
Mariota
Bortles

Obviously, one or two of those may declare eligible, so the number is flexible. You may disagree with putting any one of those QBs ahead of Bridgewater, and that's fine. But a contrary opinion is not ignorant.

Hell, I may even like Petty better by the time another season has been played.

i guess you didn't read that the decision was made for Mack....but yes, he could ultimately change his mind. there are no indications that he will and for his sake, he shouldn't.

Spitting out that X amount of players would be better than the best QB prospect in this draft is a subjective comment based on YOUR opinion and trying to pass it off as a fact is funny and just exposes you for the joke you are, so save your English class jargon and stop humiliating yourself.

Default Marcus Mariota

This kid needs his own thread. He's killing the best defense in the country right now.

Great size, runs like a gazelle, smart with the ball, cannon arm. What don't you like? Best QB in the country.

I like everything about him.

He's making me reconsider my QB rankings

1. Winston
2. Mariota
3. Cook- Who has also looked really good today and has the size BOB looks for in a QB.

Do you think he could be ready to start week 1 of the 2015 season?

Im impressed how team first he is, almost to a fault. Even the announcers made comment how he needed to be a little more selfish for the ultimate good of the team and he took over in the second half.

His skillset is one that he could not only start day 1, but he would be effective day 1.

I am waiting for him to get his completion percentage up as his yards per catch is very good as is his TD to INT ratio.
