etherdome Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 I liked Matt Ryan as a college QB. He was one of those guys that "willed" his team to success. However, I never recognized any part of his game that said "NFL star." For weeks, I have been harping on the idea that Ryan is not an upgrade from Chris Redman. And all the while, nearly every draft "guru" talks about Matt Ryan like he is an obvious starting QB in the NFL.I have a terrible track record picking QB's. I liked Akili Smith, Ryan Leaf and J P Losman. That should give you a picture of my ability to scout a QB. So, here is the question: Is Matt Ryan capable of performing at a high level in the NFL? Dimitroff must be sure of the answer. If he passes on a future star QB, he will regret it for the rest of his career. If he sinks a high draft pick and a huge sum of money on a mediocre QB, he will set the franchise back for at least five years.....and he will be looking for a job elsewhere. I am still not convinced that Ryan is worth the #3 pick in this draft. Am I wrong about this? Am I letting my love of the "big ugglies" get in the way of choosing the right QB for this team?
