    If Gabbert goes first overall I am going to guess he will be one of the biggest busts in NFL history.

    Hello Ryan Leaf.

    Seriously is he ANY better than Clausen coming out?

    I hope the Browns end up with AJ Green, but I don't think he makes it to #6 :(

    I would think they go Bowers, Darius or Peterson. QB just doesnt make sense #1. They have Clausen still. No reason to draft another QB that needs work.

    I can see this. The guy had a great pro-day yesterday. There are 3-4 teams up top that are desperate for QBs and right now have no hope of anyone on their squad developing or they have a guy like Palmer leaving. There is no sure free agency anytime soon so they have to try the draft.

    You question Newton at 4 but not Gabbert at 1?

    VY went 3

    Kiper's still a moron, but I wouldn't be upset with Watt. I like him

    Yeah, apart from some of the other craziness I could live with the Texans picks.

    I think Cam is VY version 2. Gabbert is more pro-ready day 1. I still think he's a stretch at #1, but less a stretch than Cam.

    Gabbert never played under centre and gets happy feet whenever he feels any pressure.

    Pro-ready from day one? Really?

    I think Newton is best to sit too.

    I think they both have work to do, I just think that Newton has FAR FAR more potential than Gabbert and will be able to survive in the pro's if he is thrown in the deep end while I think Gabbert won't.

    Oh and I am sorry, I didn't realise that the combine is where you define how competent a QB is in actual games.

    Have they changed the rules in the new CBA so QBs get to wear shorts and t-shirt and aren't allowed to get hit?

    I didn't realize that winning the Heisman at the QB position was a guaranteed success at the position either. The Texans aren't starting Leinart why again?

    If you think you can compare passing (you know when those QB's actually throw the ball) competency between Cam and Gabbert as being anywhere close (as exposed , quite painfully at the combine), you're delusional.

    Feel free to carry on.

    None of these QBs are ready to start day one.

    Agreed. Personally, I still don't think there's a QB worthy of a 1st round pick this year.

    The problem isn't whether a guy is "worth it" as much as whether he'll still be there when you get to pick again. For some teams, they'll be worth the risk. I expect 2-3 to be taken in the first this year.
