Discussion in 'College Football & the NFL Draft' started by gary, Feb 18, 2012.
Poll on the way.
Definitely, but not before the 5th, and only if we lose Lienart or if Schaub is not expected to play next year.
He is my 6th pick, Gary.
I'd take a chance on him.
regardless of "system" his stats are astronomical. He does know how to throw a pass. Yards per attempt almost 9.5 and TDs 48 to only 5 INTs is sick.
What's the point? Are we looking for the next Tony Romo or Tj Yates?
If we're looking for a career back-up, I can see it. If we're looking for Schaub insurance..... we need someone who won't make it past the 2nd round.
Every year this board becomes enamored w a Texas kid and how we should draft him. To date none of them have panned out to be better than what we have.
This kid was a great college system QB. How many times has that translated into the NFL? I'm sure we'll see him lighting up the arena league real soon.
The Colts may like Luck's atheticism and "potential" enough to take him.
They might decide they like RG III a little better due to his overall quickness both with his arms and legs.
But they will be smart if they take Keenum with their #1 pick.
I hope they don't.
This kid has top football IQ - it's way off the chart.
The next Drew Brees here.
The only downside is he needs to be careful not to subject himself to uneccessary hits.
This comes from a guy (me) who had correctly assessed Newton as the #1 pick last year and Gabbert not worthy of first round status.
The Colts offense also fits Keenum's game very well while Luck is more suited to the Texans'.
I will really hate to see the Colts draft him.
Smart would be taking Blackmon or Kalil; heck, even Coples(?) with their first & Keenum with their second.
Smart? Keenum isn't a highly rated QB prospect in this draft as far as I'm aware. Taking Keenum in the first would be the ultimate reach. Why would they do that? If they want Keenum they can have him...in the 3rd day of the draft.
That would be too scary to think about.
Keenum and that NO offensive line (with a couple of years under his belt), the Saints won't miss Drew Brees.
I believed Brees was the first pick in the second round back then.
The Colts with Blackmon in there will be trouble as well.
Keenum isn't going to waste too much time in the pocket.
But either Blackmon or a good O-lineman would turn that offense around pretty quickly with Keenum in there.
I'm pretty confident my statement will be closer to reality comes draft day (baring injury os some sort of unexpected set back.)
If Keenum has the size of Luck, he would be a no-brainer as the #1 overall pick.
All three just might be very good in the NFL.
76...... old friend, what are you doing?
No one sees Keenum as a First round pick much less a #1 overall. Regardless how well you think he grades out in comparison, even if the Colts felt the same way, they would wait for him in the second round... just makes more sense.
Even if they miss, but trust me no one is going to take Keenum in the first, they can still get Foles from Arizona or Maybe even Tannehill will fall.
I understand you do your own analysis.... as do the 32 teams. But unless there is reason to believe Keenum is going to be a 1st round pick by some team..... the smart thing is to wait & get him in the second; not take him with the #1 overall.
I can't imagine what Keenum can do between now & the draft to make him a #1 overall pick over Luck & RGIII.
I never said that Keenum is a sure first rounder (and only due to his size.)
All I know is that each team wants to have a franchise QB.
I see Keenum as a franchise QB.
A team with a spread offense will do well taking a long look at his game tapes.
So far, all we hear is from people who are not in the war room of any NFL team.
If there's any sound coming from those rooms, they are the normal smoke and mirror stuffs.
We're still talking about a 6th Year Senior that's projected to be a 7th/FA right?
Texans will not be looking for a Schaub replacement or even his immediate back up. They should be looking for a competitor for Yates. A late round Keenum can throw up a pas or two. He historically has favored one half of field but that is only a training issue.
You just never know how a pick will work out good or bad.
Keenum may be a very good QB at the next level, but taking him with the #1 overall is not "smart"...
