No im not trying to debate with you, you are right he prob does have the best arm in the draft and he did win the hiesman, Im just concerned on how well he will adapt with the NFLs DBs and how much faster they are. I know you saw the Flordia game. he was shut down. But other than that he is a great player.

jason white was a heisman winner too. why not get him? the fact remains that smith is small and although he has a strong arm, he also has a long windup. if we're going to get plummer, it makes no sense to take a QB on the first day. a 3rd rounder can contribute immediately. you saw winston and spencer. we still need to improve the DL, and we need a RB as well. we need to win now, and taking smith in the 3rd doesnt make us any better. we might as well just go all the way and take quinn in the 1st and forget about plummer.

Jamarcus Russell has the best arm in the draft.

I don't see QB being big need in the draft.

Not when you have LT, FS, CB, SLB, DT, C to address not to mention the offensvie playmakers that Kubiak wants.... and I don't think he means QB when he talks about that.

As for the Heismann winner argument.... that means next to nothing in the NFL.

it would be tough to see a shorter fella like Smith trying to get passes off in front of Stroud and Henderson twice a year, every year.

Russell Has a freaky arm! Much better than Smith. Smith seems to be a decent QB prospect to me but I think he will be gone in second round. We have other needs before drafting him in 2nd round. I do like Smith and if you can get him in the 3rd Iwould grab him and let Plummer play for a year or so. If that is the way you wanna go. I personally would like to see us take Jared Zabransky in the 4th or 5th round. That guy has the "IT" factor.

As was:

Jason White
Eric Crouch
Chris Weinke
Danny Wuerffel
Charlie Ward
Gino Torretta
Ty Detmer
Andre Ware

All of which combined to do a grand total of nothing in the NFL. But did lead one team to the NBA finals.

Long story short; recent Heisman winning QB's have not translated to the NFL. Carson Palmer being the exception not the rule

Russell has the STRONGEST arm in the draft hands down. How is his accuracy? I havn't heard anything to suggest it's poor or anything, just curious.

Default Re: 3 needs 3 picks

This is what I found on him:

Strengths:
Has truly rare size and bulk for the position...Might have the strongest arm in all of football (college or pro) and can make all the throws...An outstanding natural athlete...Very powerful and a load to bring down...He is mobile enough to avoid pressure and can hurt defenses with his feet...Does a superb job of keeping his eyes downfield...Has a very quick release...Can throw well on the run...A leader with good poise and composure...Got better every season and is still improving.

Weaknesses:
Is relatively raw as a passer and will need to work on his technique and throwing mechanics...Has made great strides in the accuracy department but there is still room for improvement...Numbers were inflated by the system he played in...Timed speed is solid but not special...High bust factor?...Does he love the game and is he commited to working to be the best he can be...Has minor durability concerns.

Notes:
Has drawn favorable comparisons to Daunte Culpepper...Housed over a dozen family and friends, including legendary musician Fats Domino, for a week following Hurricane Katrina...Physically he has everything you look for in a franchise signal caller...Even though he is not yet a finished product this could be the type of guy you can build a team around if he fulfills his vast potential...A sure-fire Top 5 pick.

Chris WeinkePersonally i thought Weinke was overrrated
Danny WuerffelEverything ever said about a guy's game translating to the NFL. See him
Charlie WardLiked the guy and had a solid pro career in the NBA. Guy was a gamer who was too short for pro scouts.
Gino TorrettaDidn't see him play myself
Ty DetmerSee Gino
Andre WareSee Gino

All of which combined to do a grand total of nothing in the NFL. But did lead one team to the NBA finals.

My thoughts in bold.

Default Re: 3 needs 3 picks

I still think Eli got jipped. Manning definitly should have won it over jason white. white had great numbers and all but it was oklahoma when they could have beat any team in the nfl. (slight exhaggeration but OU was a monster then)

Default Re: 3 needs 3 picks

Three needs, three picks:

1. - Adrian Peterson (RB, OU) The Texans need a Running Back. The Texans need a Running Back. The Texans need a Running Back.
2. - Michael Griffin (Safety, Texas) In a deep secondary class, Griffin is still an elite safety and will make life hard on Colts passing games.
3. - Datish (Center, OSU) Not only a center, but a guard, too. Thus filling Kubes' love for lineman who can play more than one position.

With these three picks the Texans have improved Carr's protection, given the Texans their first great running back, and improved the run game. Defensively, the Texans now have a great safety. This is kind of a BPA pick in the second round. Defensive secondary is not the Texans' priority, but I'm betting they take the talent.

Because Stanton can throw on the run. He fits Kubiak offense, and he can see over OL.

Smith had a bad senior bowl week to go along with a bad bowl game. Yes he won the heisman but so did the OU qb White, and where is he playing?
