Thorn, it's not that much better if you're in the top 5 picks either. This just isn't a particularly great year for QB's period.

Exactly.

There is no QB worth the #1 pick this year.

Take a flyer on one in a later round and hope Brady lightning strikes.

I think it will be Fitz, plus draft-choice, plus either another draftee or FA.
They are about to sign ButtFumble to be the third QB in Philly...

Could see Keenum giving it a go in Cleveland with Lil Shanny...

I think Lil Shanny will eventually be a better O coordinator than Kubiak (hell, he might be better already), and I think he has the ability to implement a game plan that's more dynamic than the typical Kubiak game plan, and more in line with Keenum's abilities.

However, Keenum was an UDFA, so cutting him costs us nothing in the way of salary or compensatory picks. TJ Yates was a 5th round pick, who is not making considerably more money than Keenum (+150k), and could potentially give the Texans a compensatory pick next offeseason if a team signs him. So if I were Rick, I'd shop around after the draft to see if Keenum can fetch a late round pick, or maybe package him with a current pick to swap up a round in this year's draft. It's a cheap price to pay for potentially a 6th or 7th next year, or more importantly, it could protect a higher compensatory pick from being nullified through free agency.
Dang, when since the Combine did Keenum shrink 2 inches?

Hmmm...My take is that this is a pretty dang good QB draft unless you're in the top 5.

If OB really does find the top 5-6 QB prospects very close, in terms of talent and upside in the NFL, I wouldn't be butt hurt with alternative scenarios. There are some very good QB's in this draft. Just not 1 or 2 great ones.

EDIT: I voted Fitz+Keenum+ new QB. I'm torn on the Keenum vote, though. Due to fanbase pressure, keeping him or cutting him makes sense.

Actually, I was making a joke about not trusting anything anyone says at this point in the offseason.

Been watching Keenum again on Game Rewind, and I wouldn't let him go anywhere. He's got some things to learn, no doubt, but the ability is there. Not saying go with him as a starter again so soon at all, but I'd keep that guy around.

If Keenum stays then I guess we are going to carry 3 QB's on the 53 man roster.

I'd say that's right in a year where we really have no clear cut starter to begin the season and a new HC with an all new system. You never know what can happen and it's better to have 3 QB's with you from the start that learn your system early on than to try to sign one mid-season and bring up to speed in case of an emergency.

I honestly think it will be Fitz/Keenum/Rookie, and the starter will be decided in camp. I think any 3 of those have a legit shot at starting. Yates will find his way to the Ravens.

Call me crazy, but it seems to me that BOB has expressed interest in pretty much every QB available that's not named Freeman, Vick, Gabbert, Ponder and the like. I wonder if BOB likes Glennon...

Default Re: QBs on '14 roster

Case Keenum is better than T.J. Yates, IMO. I'd like to have Fitzpatrick or Keenum starting Week 1 of the 2014 season. The rookie quarterback we draft, especially if it's in round two or three (not first overall), can sit and learn the playbook. There shouldn't be a heavy desire or need to rush him at all unless he was drafted number one overall, aka Johnny Manziel. I'd rather have Jadeveon Clowney #1 though. I'll be disappointed if we take Khalil Mack but I can butter up myself into liking him if he's as big a beast as people say.

I will love the Mack's pick. If there is not franchise QBs in the draft, don't gamble on a QB with a lower grade. Pick the best player available, Khalil Mack should be the one. Sorry Clowney fans, he probably should have worked harder. I am really concerned about Clowney's work ethnic.
