Default Joe Flacco?

http://profootballexperts.scout.com/...24&rc=4&pid=10

I knew his stock was rising but seriously? #2 behind Matt Ryan?

No kidding. I just wonder if he has the upside of Woodson or concerns about the level of competition. Get the gut feeling more of a Trent Edwards/ John Beck Type of QB.

Some team is going to pick Brohm in the 2nd or 3rd round and he will end up being a great QB.

Seriously, Joe Flacco?

He has the strongest arm of the group...bar none. Get into a third and thirteen and you gotta stick a fourteen yard out....he's your guy. His foot work is awkward and he is rough. All he needs is a decent Qb coach. Someone will get a bargin on the second day.

It's not very surprising. Look at the QB class as a whole, it's really not very good at all. They definitely didn't help their draft in the Senior games. IMO, other than his arm strength, Flacco didn't impress me either. I don't think any of them are first round worthy. Maybe Ryan late in the first.

Ryan will go top 15 at least. If Atlanta and KC let him slip he will be a steal for the Bears. I hope he goes to Atlanta because he will get to be the face of the franchise from the get go.

If you look back at the list they have Flacco above guys like DeSean Jackson and Mendenhall.

Sounds like a carbon copy of Kyle Boller.

Default Re: Joe Flacco?

Joe Flacco is a project who needs to carry the clipboard at least a couple years & learn as much as possible about speed of the game, reading defenses to running whatever offensive scheme. he should be a 3rd rd, pick, think Matt Schaub.....even his looks & personality.

Regarding Ryans the only measureable you need to understand is his leadership ability. he is a carbon copy of Tom Brady about one year into the league. Being up there in Boston he is a local kid learning in the shawdows of the most admired QB in NFL history. he has the same size, uses the shotgun, catches, moves & throws with similar movement. What better pick than New England, yes the Patriots selecting Matt Ryans to be Bradys back-up & future replacement?

I like Flacco.

He reminds of an old school guy who just plays to win.

Sounds like a waste for the Pats when they need a CB going into the season and whose LBs are going to leave the NFL directly into an Assisted Living Community.

Bradys going into assisted living if he doesn't get better protection. I think Clady would be a pretty safe bet right about now

Had an arguement with a buddy about the Texans drafting a QB this year. It wouldn't suprise me if he is there in the 3rd that the Texans took him.

Needs to sit and learn for a couple of years, so Matt has 3 years to prove that he is the man, and if he is, Flaco becomes solid trade bait.

Why would we Draft a QB in the 3rd since we only carry 2 QB's? I guess you were the one arguing for a QB? That would be a wasted pick, especially with the holes that we have.

That sounds errilly along the lines of Charley Casserly thinking with the Dave Ragone selection in the 3rd round in '03. How did that one work out?

I guess arguement was the wrong word. We were having a conversation and I said it wouldn't suprise me if they did draft one.

Kinda like Atlanta drafting Schaub in the later rounds when they have Vick. How did that work out? (oh yeah someone gave them two picks for him)

At the time, they (Atlanta) didn't know that Vick was the kingpin of the underworld dog fighting ring, either. And thank goodness they didn't or they would still have Schaub, and we would have probably had another season of Carr.
