Trade down. Teddy isn't the real thing and I don't trust Clowney to live up to his abilities. I see him shutting it down whenever he sees fit.

Trade down, get more picks, and stock up from a lower spot. This isn't the year to have the top pick I don't believe.

I see this sentiment floating around from a few posters but with no further explanation. Do you mind if I ask why you think so?

I don't know his reasoning, BUT until about 2 weeks ago I was not sold on teddy at all either. I highly questioned his ability to ZIP the ball in tight spaces. He is accurate and smart with the ball, but when the window is tight or he throws a screen, he never seemed to dart them in. They always just hung in the air. But the more I watched (and even last night he was slinging it around) the more I saw he has the ability to zip the ball. I think he just needs a better qb coach who can mold his talent a little more.

Default Re: #1 pick

I doubt any NFL GMs worth their salt know who they would take #1 right now. There is a lot of information to gather the next four months. As boardmembers, it may be healthier to let the process happen, at least through the combine, before asserting absolute certainty regarding who should/shouldn't be drafted at #$1... not saying we shouldn't have opinions. Right now, my board looks like this:

1. Aaron Donald
2. Teddy Bridgewater
3. Matthews

** I'd like to see a trade down. Otherwise, I think I am in favor of Bridgewater, but that is subject to change. I think Aaron Donald is a beast and, based on all the draftnik baffoons, is way undervalued right now. I would absolutely avoid Clowney anywhere in the top 10.

I'm thrilled to have the 1st pick! Whether there is a clear #1 or not, under this CBA, it is a great position to be in (top 5 contracts are no longer detrimental). We get anyone we want. That's good... And, we will certainly get offers for that pick- perhaps not at the value desired, but we will have options. Also, we have the 1st pick in every other round... that's also good news! Let's get a coach hired, a staff put together, and get this off-season moving! The best thing about a disastrous season like this is that it makes for an active, entertaining off-season. So, there is that!

He is too small right now! However, that is not difficult to resolve in the NFL. He'll get the time, focus in the weight room that he likely spent in class and in film study in college. Also, it is not unusual for men to begin a natural "thickening"/muscle-building growth spurt between age 22-27...

Observe Tom Brady's combine body and the body he had 3 years later.

So, I agree that his size is an issue right now. I just don't think that it will be an issue three years from now.

Well, I know you were asking Herv that, and I'll let him speak for himself. But what I saw last night, was stuff he was getting away with that he wouldn't have going against an NFL defense.

He basically reminded me of Case Keenum. Sorry, he just did.

EDIT: And NO, I don't have an issue with his size. If I did, I would have issues with Brees and Wilson, or Keenum's for that matter.

That's fine.

I'm not looking for an argument with anyone who doesn't like Teddy. Just trying to find out what exactly it is that they don't like.

I think he's the read deal. Reminds me of Aaron Rodgers. Size is a concern right now for most people though. He's very thin.

I can't even put my finger on it and I said it. I just don't see him being "franchise-QB-level" successful in the NFL. I've watched him some, not a lot but I go through his highlight clips on Youtube and I just don't see what makes him the guy you take at 1-1. I see a guy who lights up bad defenses in a very average conference.

I think he's closer to Andre Ware than Andrew Luck. To be fair I don't see greatness in any QB coming out this year. It's not that I don't think he can't eventually be maybe "good enough". I just don't see him taking the reigns and taking off like I would expect a QB selected that high to be capable of doing.

I've said I'd take Matthews at 1-1 but if that's simply too unpalatable then I'd grab Clowney, pray that he isn't the lazy ****-off piece of **** that the little voice inside my head is warning me that he will turn out to be, and then try to move into position to get Mettenberger in the late 1st - early 2nd round.

Better than that would be to me trading down, getting a QB and a RT in the second half of the first round/top of the second round, and then working on the defense primarily from then on down.
