    Interesting read.
    Sanchez stock sure seems to be rising, even though he only has one year under his belt at the collegiate level.
    I'm hearing more and more people saying he is a better prospect than Stafford.

    With the production of Ryan and Flacco last year and the lack of good QB's in the league, I think the trigger will be pulled pretty early for both of these guys, whereas 2 or 3 years ago, one of them (Sanchez) may have slipped to late 1st round.

    One thing to keep in mind at this point in the offseason.....(Greenburg highlighted it this morning on Mike and MIke), don't believe anything you hear in the next 5 days as it is probably someone trying to make you think something they want you to think and that something probably isn't true......

    Man I love this time of year.
    ;D

    agreed and this is true.. but i do believe sanchez in going to be a better QB than stafford... considering just what they did with their respective offenses in college...

    ideally, i don't think stafford will be a good Qb if he goes to the wrong team.. i.e. the lions.. he's gonna need a lot of weapons around him to be successful, and even with such, he couldn't consistently prove that at Georgia.. with very good talent around him!

    Staff with a couple years behind Pep and while they add more weapons on offense would be pretty solid IMO

    I don't think he will be great.. but I bet he could be a pro bowler a couple years out of his career if they take him and groom him

    Hakeem Nicks was overweight and not in great shape when the Ravens worked him out Friday. In other words, the receivers are a suspect group, and a few of them we thought would be picked in the first round are going in the second.
    Hmmmmm I am starting to change my mind a little. I think the first pick will be RT but only if Britton is there.

    I watched the skills comp.. He looked slow and missed some catches as well

    He made a nice unnessisary one handed jump ball at the end.. Although it was poorly thowrn.. Looked like he had hops

    But im so torn now after watching that!

    Stafford can hit plates with a football, I think he'll be just fine with CJ.

    I think you have changed your mind almost (not quite as much) as I have over the first pick. Wish they would just trade the damn thing and be done with it.

    Not really. It has always been CB, OT, and WR from the end of the season last year. I just don't know who will be BPA.
