AJ McCarron cannot consistently deliver the ball accurately on intermediate routes.

Nothing says a Bill O'Brien QB like 6'4" 230 lb BLAKE BORTLES as 6'4" 220 lb CHRISTIAN HACKENBERG!

Wrong

Can he do it under pressure should be the question. Nobody knows the answer to this question at this point.

It bothers me that McCarron backed out of the North/South game.

After listening to this ESPN piece hosted by Stephen A.

Actually, I pretty much agree with him. I'm old enough that Bobby Layne was one of my football heroes (along with Johnny U). He would show up still hung over from partying the night before the game. It was said, he never lost a game - time just ran out.

Everything about that clip is bothersome. The overall argument, the supporting arguments, the histrionic delivery by Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless, the red herring Manziel critics, the stupid racism hypothetical, and finally ending with Bayless pondering if O'Brien gets fired before he ever coaches a game. Notice they didn't mention scouting reports or criticisms that are actually relevant.

Lance Zerlein sits down with Greg Cosell (senior producer at NFL Films), for whom I have greater respect for than any "evaluator" out there. THIS IS A MUST-HEAR INTERVIEW where he talks about the QBs in this draft / Clowney / and his thought on the Texans #1 pick.

EDIT: Sorry, just noticed.......this was posted by Playoffs in the Draft Forum! Might want to keep it here, for those that don't travel into that forum.

Good interview, and I have to agree with the observations made about the QB's. Bridgewater has demonstrated more than the others that he can anticipate windows, which is mandatory.

They also summed up why I wouldn't be disappointed one bit if Clowney was the choice.

Dagnabbit, ditto. I was so much NO CLOWN for so long, that's change. Not just this interview, mind you. We HAVE TO TAKE THE BEST PLAYER, REGARDLESS!

I just hope we don't wind up with McCarron in the 8th round.

One can get more info on this forum than you can on ESPN. Almost of those guys are clueless.

Sneak peak into the Bill O'Brien QB selection process....
