From the pos/neg he sounds like a Schaub clone, not too bad IMO if that's the case

yeah i was going to say, he appears to have ideal footwork and pocket presence for the kubiak offense. his arms appears to need some development, but it's easy to see why kubiak wants him. unfortunately, you have to wonder if kubiak will be around long enough to fully develop him.

Still a lot of players left that I like. I think this is a good pick here with the extra 5th we got. A great developmental QB guy that Kubiak can work with.

My initial reaction was to hate this pick.

But after hearing that so many people like this kid and the reasons why, I'm actually pretty good with it. So I like.

Given Yates has time to sit and learn with a very good teacher and mentor, Yates could end up having a better career than A LOT of other QBs taken earlier.

I am getting higher and higher on this pick.

Like more than Carmichael and Keo.

I feel better about the Yates pick right now than I bet Pats fans felt about Brady on draft day. And that doesn't mean I'm comparing him to Tom Brady, for those of you who struggle with the English language.

I hope that we haven't chosen a QB with a strong noodle upstairs (wonderlic 34) and with an arm that would be better suited to float in a soup bowl along with some tastey pieces of chicken.

From the little bit of video they showed on ESPN, he was hitting receivers in stride down the field. They didn't have to slow up to wait for the ball. ESPN didn't show a 15-yd. out, so I guess we'll have to see, but I doubt he has a noodle arm.

good at the play option. Let's get the ball to AJ, OD, Dreesen, Foster, Tate or Slaton and allow them to get it down the field. I want an accurate passer over a long passer.

I know UNC's offensive line wasn't great this year, but I have seen several defensive players highlights sacking Yates...

In any case, this is a 'meh' pick to me. Probably could have gotten him in the 7th, but that's ok. 5-7th rounds shouldn't be anything spectacular.

Default Re: TJ Yates- Reaction to pick

ok had some time to calm down along with copious amounts of beer so taking those items into consideration, the Yates pick means Matt Leinart is not expected to be retained once CBA agreement reached & free agency begins. That's #1. #2 this is the last year of Orlovsky's contract. Hence #3 Yates will not be exposed to PS (where another team can steal him) & will make the opening day roster. there, I said it.

it's a fifth round pick. Why not take a developmental QB to groom behind Schaub?
