And the money lost to being sued!
With that being said I believe Manziel will be drafted by the Texans and Schaub will be cut and signed by the Vikings.
We will draft BPA and I hope it is Sammy Watkins!

I don't believe in "clutch." Is the QB throwing the ball any more clutch than the receiver making the catch or the linemen blocking who contribute to the success of the play? If 10 defensive players do their job right, and one fails, allowing offensive success, are they not clutch too? They did their job just as well as anyone else, theoretically, but the team failed regardless. You either execute or you don't on a given play.
That being said, it's clear that Manziel's skill set gives him a better chance than most to make plays when things start to break down around him.
His size is a concern to some, it's not something I'm particularly concerned with at QB. If he were a 5'11" 190lb defensive end I'd be worried.
I'd be happy to see him selected if he's the best player available when the Vikings are on the clock, but I think there will end up being a few guys who grade out ahead of him. I'd rather see a first round pick used on defense this year.

I would LOVE to see either Manziel or Bridgewater in purple, I think both will be stars in the NFL. But I also know that some stars fall, and the picks we would have to give up for either of those 2 just seem too important ATM for us to give up.
I know little nothing about Bortles, so I left him out of this discussion. I figure we will know a LOT more by the time the draft rolls around.
All this being said, what other QB options do you guys see in this year's draft? I have heard about:
Who else might go in the second round that has been under the radar?Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

I like McCarron, totally different style of play from Manziel I know. He comes from a big time school, from some of what I've read he has confidence and he's a winner. I am really tired of the "project" qb. How often do any of them pan out ?

Give me a QB with passing accuracy above all else, but the ability to run if needed, and the wisdom to not take unnecessary hits.
Which QB does that describe?
