#1 pick Posted March 11, 2012 Share Posted March 11, 2012 (edited) Matt Ryan: Excellent game manager. Has he peaked? Will he put the work in the weight-room that's needed? So much of Matt Ryan needs are physical. In fact, almost all of what Ryan needs is physical. I am certain Ryan doesn't do much in the weight-room outside of drills that will help him be able to take hits and the 16 game season. We need him physically bigger, faster, and stronger without question. I hope he doesn't think RG3 came into college with a big arm, or Brady in the NFL. Those guys put in a lot of work into the weight room to get physically stronger. I know Peyton Manning didn't but he doesn't have to either, Ryan does. In the NFL, everyone can gain a lift in this arena to a degree and we just need Matt to get stronger in the sense of Tom Brady. Right now he looks like a skinny fat uncoordinated square who has a weak arm. Extremely skilled QB. Extremely high football IQ. He has a lot of talent. I might harp on that aspect of his game but he does have a lot of talent that at least good enough to be a top 15 QB and more but if he doesn't improve physically he will peaked where he is right now. Opening day starter.Chris Redman is a below average QB who is regressing into a terrible QB. He is no longer an average NFL backup. I would say he needs to be a lock to be released. He and Sam Baker should be cut come June 1st. His talent level is dropping to the point where I don't think he has NFL talent anymore. He is still very smart and works very hard. He should be out of the league right now. Should be released. Overstayed his time.John Parker Wilson is a terrible QB. He came in with NFL ready very polish skill set with no NFL talent to his name. At this moment he is still that same player. While I want to see him as our backup next year I understand why he would be a bad backup in the NFL. I personally don't see him as a NFL QB but more so a backup QB in the CFL from a talent standpoint. Still he knows the offense, is smart, has game manager traits so I think he deserves a chance at the job. Possible backup option.We need to draft one of these QB's in the mid to late rounds of this draft. This draft doesn't have the same overall ability that last years amazing QB draft class had but this draft is actually more talented than last years draft. Because of development, sometimes talented QB draft classes don't pay out since the NFL value NFL readiness more so than talent for backups. Here are very talented players I like for us that I have scouted. I haven't seen much on some small college guys so do not get mad at me since I won't list them.Russell Wilson, Brandon Weeden, Brock Osweiler, Ryan Lindley, and Jacory Harris. I feel that each one of these players are very talented QB's who could be NFL starters one day and possibly more. Wilson is really like a Quizz Rodgers to me. He is a prospect that can be special and has the tools to be special. He just needs the right system, coaches, and personnel to become special. Brandon Weeden is one of my favorite prospect. He is very talented and polished. Reminds me of another older prospect in Quincy Carter who I felt blew a chance to be what Tony Romo is today.Osweiler is very talented, reminds me of Elvis Grbac with his arm, size, and speed for his height. He needs a lot more polish. When developed, he can be somewhat like a Matt Schaub for a team. Ryan Lindley is a special talent, he has a lot of Tom Brady traits. He just needs more development and he must improve his technique and footwork in the pocket but he has very good pocket presence and pocket mobility. He also has shotty accuracy. Jacory Harris is your extremely low floor, extremely high ceiling player in this draft. He is unpolished and doesn't make NFL throws in the sense of understanding when and where to throw the ball. He has a lot of talent. His talent reminds me of Kurt Warner in a lot of ways. He can be a special player with the right personnel, right system, and the time to develop on his flaws. **** Vermeil stated after coaching Harris in the NFLPA draft bowl game, he most definitely has the talent but he's raw right now. He can be a special prospect. He most definitely is worth a look and maybe a pick in the NFL draft.I think we need to bring in 5 QB's to camp. Last is Stephen Garcia. I feel he has some talent. Overall I think he's not a good QB at all. He just doesn't have good football IQ and he never focused on Football. I doubt that will change either but I would give him a chance to come into camp and fight for a spot on the PS. Plus since Redman will be cut, I wouldn't mind having 3 QB's on the team and 4 on both the team and PS. Most likely he will be cut though.Check out the NFL draft QB thread 2012: http://boards.atlant...2012-nfl-draft/ Edited March 11, 2012 by #1 pick Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
