Cont13... Sorry for novel. The end!

Cont12... I think Bortles is worth top 10 pick but would have hard time taking him over the elite guys: Clowney, Robinson, Mack, Watkins

Cont11... but remember I was a bit higher on Tannehill than most (mid-1st rd grade)

Cont10... Long-short: I think he grades out (for me) just slightly behind Tannehill -

Cont9... But he has above avg arm and accuracy. He has outstanding pocket presence. He has a strong mental makeup, and he has "it" factor.

Cont8... ...he's always going to have to work hard on mechanics to keep ball placement at a high enough level.

Cont7... He is never going to have elite arm strength and...

Cont6... Now- I understand it's just a pro day, so I'm keeping everything in perspective. He's not Andrew Luck- not by a long shot.

Cont5... As result, he's generating more power from lower body to improve ball velocity. And in long run will have more consistent accuracy.

Cont4... Based on what I saw yesterday, he's well on his way towards fixing. And it is coming very naturally to him.

Cont3... Which is step 1. Step 2 is fixing the problem - and making sure it's natural (so it can be sustainable).

Cont2... He has identified issues that we all see on tape (weak base, failing to transfer weight, opening wide to left, falling off throws)

Cont... knows that he is just a minor tweak to lower body mechanic away from putting it all together.

Improved base/balance. Looks like he's finding mechanically sound delivery that works for him. Anyone that knows QB pos and studied his tape

Was just ripping with @LanceZierlein re: QB Bortles. Next few tweets are copied/pasted from what I was writing...

McShay's World Draftnik Tour Top 32

Quote:
1Jadeveon ClowneyCOLLEGE: South CarolinaClass: JrHT: 6-5WT: 266POS: DE
Analysis: I attended Clowney's pro day workout Wednesday and wrote up an article on how I thought he performed, which you can read here. But in short, I think Clowney is in his own class, a step above the other three elite prospects in this class, and I think it's going to be really hard for the Texans to pass him up with the No. 1 pick. He has a rare blend of size, athleticism, strength and speed, and he can beat opponents with his speed rush or his bull rush. I also think he's capable of dropping into coverage when he's asked to do so.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 9 | PLAYER CARD

9Blake BortlesCOLLEGE: UCFClass: JrHT: 6-5WT: 232POS: QB
2013 STATSYDS 3280TD 22INT 7
Analysis: Bortles has prototypical size at 6-5, 232 pounds, and, although he doesn't have a great arm, it is strong enough to make all the NFL throws. He has good pocket presence and playmaking ability and rates well in terms of his leadership and intangibles. He has some minor improvements to make in terms of his mechanics and accuracy, but it was very encouraging to see at his pro day that he had clearly made progress in those areas already this offseason.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 10 | PLAYER CARD

10Ha Ha Clinton-DixCOLLEGE: AlabamaClass: JrHT: 6-1WT: 208POS: S

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 16 | PLAYER CARD

11Aaron DonaldCOLLEGE: PittsburghHT: 6-0WT: 285POS: DT

12Eric EbronCOLLEGE: North CarolinaClass: JrHT: 6-4WT: 250POS: TE

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 13 | PLAYER CARD

13Teddy BridgewaterCOLLEGE: LouisvilleClass: JrHT: 6-2WT: 214POS: QB
2013 STATSYDS 3523TD 28INT 4
Analysis: Bridgewater remains the most pro-ready QB prospect in this class, but he drops a few spots here because there continue to be concerns about his long-term durability because of his lean frame and about his ability to drive the ball down the field with velocity and accuracy. He did nothing to ease either of those concerns for NFL teams with his pro day performance; Bridgewater's is one of the rare cases when a quarterback's throwing performance on game tape is more impressive than what he showed at his pro day.

PREVIOUS RANK: No. 8 | PLAYER CARD

20Johnny ManzielCOLLEGE: Texas A&MClass: SophHT: 5-11WT: 207POS: QB
2013 STATSYDS 3732TD 33INT 13
Analysis: Manziel earned an A for his pro day performance, but he remains one of the most difficult-to-evaluate prospects I've ever seen. You can check out my full scouting report on him here; in short, he has a strong arm, quick release, poise and vision under pressure and a unique ability to create, but carries with him a significant injury risk because of his small frame and has a lot of work to do to overcome being a sub-6-foot quarterback with a three-quarter delivery and inconsistent college mechanics.

If the Texans trade out of 1-1, McShay "would be shocked if the Texans took Manziel over Bortles." -ESPN
