Default Re: 2014 NFL Draft Thread

Murray
Mettenberger
Mccarron
Boyd
Savage
Fales

BOB has repeatedly said that they will address the position and based on the list above there should be More than a few talented guys still available for us. I think BOB has wanted a developmental guy late in the draft all along. And since none of the top end prospects really stood out he felt comfy with taking a project late. Plus He knows how folks here are clamoring for a qb. So drafting a guy late takes the pressure off to start that prospect before he's ready.

We'll get our QB next year. Considering the improvements made to the team so far, I can live with that.

this is where i'm at. i didnt think there was a major difference between the top rated quarterback and the 10th. one (or more) of these guys is going to be available at 4.35, if not later. savage was one that a few were interested in taking in the second round, to those i ask - how would you feel if we got him in the 4th? or the 2-3 for mettenberger and mccarron, what about getting them in the 5th? there are at least two on that list i'd rather have than bortles or manziel, and as late rounders will let us add better BPA talent as well as reduce the pressure of adding an early round quarterback.

My hunch is Savage. McCarron still available, then Zach, Murray. Logan is the physically most gifted.

Ravens just took Gillmore of Colorado State. Do you guys think Kubiak has a lot to do with this pick?

Yes, this is definitely different. Different is good.

They could target Deandre Coleman with their 4th round pick or Shamar Stephen with a trade up into the 5th. Both are favorites of mine.

BOB has repeatedly said that they will address the position and based on the list above there should be More than a few talented guys still available for us. I think BOB has wanted a developmental guy late in the draft all along. And since none of the top end prospects really stood out he felt comfy with taking a project late. Plus He knows how folks here are clamoring for a qb. So drafting a guy late takes the pressure off to start that prospect before he's ready.

I'd be fine with any of those guys and you almost have them in my order of preference. Love the draft so far.
