    I've been wondering when and under what context that name would pop up again.

    He is a developmental project. He has the speed and strength to make plays with his feet but he needs to work on his technique and delivery if he's ever going to succeed in the NFL as a QB.

    Aaron Rodgers had an extremely odd delivery when he was drafted at 24th overall but was able to learn and develop with the coaches and is now arguably the best QB in the game.

    Could Klein have the same results? Most likely no, but there is room to dream. :cow:

    A possible mobile QB? What is that? I hope the makes the cut. He's a good athlete hopefully he can be a good nfl QB too.

    At least he has chance to work with right coaching staff for a developmental QB.

    We'll need to see how far Keenum has come first. If Keenum has really improved from year 1 to 2 then i'll feel a lot better with Klein's chances. I know Kubiak likes his QB projects but we have to see how far that project has come before we can know if Klein is in the right hands.

    Klein has the attributes and is honestly a better passer than Tebow but just needs to put it all together.

    Big physical, winning leader who flashes Cam Newton core strength, heck yeah I'd take a flyer on him high reward low risk.

    This. No cost for test driving. Love to be able to trade Yates & Schaub 2014 (or cut)& go with Collin & Keenum even if we still draft a QB high.

    Is there a special handshake or something to get into the draftnik pot store?

    Some people are amazing.

    Get rid of the Probowl and playoff winning QBs and hand the franchise over to 2 guys that nobody wanted, that can't make the game day roster because its a conspiracy. Smh.

    No but people in the legal profession are usually excluded.

    Seriously, a scenario could be select QB like David Fales next draft & he trains under Schaub 2014 season. We trade Yates after 2013 (signed thru 2014).
    Trade Schaub after 2014.

    In 2015 choose best of Fales (in his second year), Klein (3rd season) and Keenum. If nothing better, we can keep MS and select back up and third guy. Yates is getting closer to end of deal & we need to move or start him over Matt by end of his contract. This probably not best bet.

    Fales? I say we draft DEREK CARR :trapstar:

    No, just kidding.

    I have an awful feeling we're going to go for AJ McCarron or something. I like him but I don't think he has a very high ceiling.

    He's a bit more mobile than Schaub though imo

    To build dynasty, you move younger players up to replace starters when you can. Cuts costs and keeps youngsters motivated. Not all starters are HOFs, jersey in the rafter like AJ. Schaub is a good Qb but not great and like others is helped by the system. If he or others can be replaced with comparable if not exact why not consider?

    In 2015 Matt's cap is $17m & 33 years old. I think people who think ahead are amazing.

    I expect McCarron to be a higher first round pick.

    I'm not so sure. I already have seen people start to nitpick him and it will only get worse if Alabama doesn't go undefeated next season.

    If you watch him at the Shrine game he might have had some problems passing but was all over the place running the ball. Couldn't be stopped. Not what we're looking for but EJ Manuel did it at the Senior Bowl and was praised heavily for it.

    No kidding.

    I'm not a purist regarding mechanics, but there's a limit to "unorthodox."

    It's quite the sight but my guess is Kubiak is going to break his arm, dislocate his elbow, snap his shoulder out of place and then start from scratch.. :D
