Yep ... the #1 overall pick should be an elite prospect . I think there are 2 in this draft and neither is a QB .

I am looking at WR Watkins and also like Mosley and Matthews as most risk free. I am hoping for trade down with Browns and using #4 on Watkins as franchise type play maker.

This is for the people who are souring on Teddy because of his pro day

Quote:
Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin blew away observers at their respective pro days. So did Geno Smith, Sam Bradford, Blaine Gabbert, JaMarcus Russell, Tim Couch and Ryan Leaf.

“I thought it was very average at best,” NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock said.

Mayock was among the vocal supporters for Gabbert following Missouri’s pro day in 2011 — “The kid confirmed everything you want to see in a franchise quarterback. I thought he did as good as he could have.” It was Bradford who caught the eye of Mayock’s colleague, legendary NFL mind Gil Brandt, who said that the Oklahoma QB’s pro day was “the best quarterback workout by a draft prospect that I’ve seen since I watched a private workout Troy Aikman put on for us with the Cowboys in California.” ESPN’s Todd McShay had even higher praise for Russell, way back in 2007: “I can’t remember being in such awe of a quarterback in my decade of attending combines and pro days. Russell’s passing session was the most impressive of all the pro days I’ve been to.”

That's why people are saying "Look at the tape" and "It's just practice."

He missed an opportunity to solidify himself as THE guy if he was already in the running.

I think the gloves ( or lack of ) are an issue . His size is an issue and he got a bit of stage fright at his pro day . The guys who had a good pro day then bombed , excelled at the simple and when things got harder , they failed . Teddy is not the #1 overall pick .

Of course the issue with that is the fact proday is just about mechanics and throwing. None of those players had physical issues. They had mental blocks or simply were lazy. So none of that is exposed on proday. Those guys can make all the throws but when under pressure they fizzled or some just plain quit. Well I excuse Bradford as he hasn't had a bad career thus far and was showing improvement before getting injured (once again) this past season.

In any case, many already said it is only one session and that there is still game film and the private workouts. Doesn't mean we can't evaluate the proday since that is the point of having it and why NFL personnel were there. You take it and add it to everything else. It isn't the final verdict.

I agree, this could have been his opportunity to eliminate a few lingering questions there may be about him. But I also agree that his game film and interviews with gm's and coaches is likely to speak volumes more than his shorts and t-shirt dry run.

Like I said, some guys are just gamers. And I'm content with him being the "anti-Mike Mamula".

How funny people are saying it means nothing. THen why have a pro day at all? Of course it means something. It confirmed what a lot of people have been saying for awhile now. That he has problems with deep passes.


Another funny thing, people keep pointing out all the bad QB's that had good pro days. That's just it. Even the bad ones do good at their pro days. How about showing another top rated QB that had as disappointing a performance as Teddy's today.

On the radio earlier they rattled off some names in both categories. I know they mentioned cam newton and nick foles as two guys who some scouts said weren't impressive at their pro days.

They read one scout who said Russell Wilson couldn't be a starter and his best fit was a back up. Tom Brady was far from impressive at the combine.

He's not a qb, but burfict had a bad combine and a bad pro day.

Bill Walsh said he wouldn't have taken manning in the first round. He'd have took another player and gone after griese in the second.

So some people will take the less than stellar pro day and it confirns what they think of said prospect. If you never liked him, this wouldn't help.

I think for those of us that do like him, we aknowledge that it was a bad showing, but aren't going to let a bad day tossing the ball around in tshirts override what all we've seen on film.

For those undecided, this very well could swing the pendulum.

Question is, where do the texans stand?

And people should just chill out a little bit. No one here is making any decisions and we won't have an outcome for a few years. And by then the level of angst will have resided and people won't care as much and most won't remember what poster said what about who.

The TB orgasmics while admitting TB had a bad pro day. But they will never admit that TB isn't 1-1.

Fair people say he still could be #1 but this had to hurt his chances.
