    If he lacks accuracy, poise under pressure, and the ability to read defenses, he will bust. Who in this draft has those attributes ?
    If the answer is nobody then it would be foolish to waste an early pick on a QB.

    NFL Network is abuzz with the fact that there are not enough QBs available to all the teams who need to get QBs to develop. Couple that with the top QBs having both good and bad traits, with none being a Luck or RGIII, you have a potentially ugly QB draft. Most of these guys should be going in the 3rd round or later, but if you wait that long, there might not be any left.

    As an example, Savage should NOT go earlier than the 5th round due to the question marks, but most analysts think, at this time, he will be drafted by someone in the SECOND.

    If a GM and coach think a QB is a year away from being a stud, they had better get that guy in the first or early second, or chance are they will be shit out of luck.

    Of course, this all might change tomorrow. This draft will be FULL of surprises.

    I think there are plenty of QB's to go around. Just not many organizations that can identify or put them in a position to succeed.

    The rare QB will succeed no matter what circumstance they are put in, but the majority of successful QB's were put in an environment that allowed them success.

    My friend has a system, based on imperfect science that qbs will play like their name, Luck will be just fine but Ponder will be ponderous...based on this terrible science we should not pick David Fales

    Of course we have "Turner" so perhaps "Fales" would be a positive instead of a negative.

    i said mettenberger before and still think ,he is spielman man ...strong arm ...has the size you like and played top competion...spielman like grabbing guys that drop in draft because of injury questions too ...i think if he makes past 40..and most teams grab their qb in the top of the second ..we will wait til 3rd and take him..
