XXVIII-III

If Jalen Hurts is still on the board in the 2nd round, we gotta take him.

I know we have TONS of other needs now, but it’s way too tough to get a shot at a potential franchise QB to pass up if he’s still on the board for our 2nd round pick. Some are predicting he’ll go in the 3rd or 4th round, but I think teams have wisened up after watching Watson and Jackson fall in the draft then come out and ball.

Gotta do it.

No we don't.

For every Watson theirs a Winston, Mariota and Trubisky.

This post is dumb. So because there are bad players you should never try get a good one? I don’t even like Hurts but this post doesn’t make since. 
 

Well guys for every Manning there is a Leaf, so let’s pass on Andrew Luck cause he might suck.

Sigh...

 

We have a MVP QB, and an all-pro WR,  who are likely on their last go around with this franchise. Our only focus next offseason will (AND SHOULD) be focused solely on bolstering this roster to make runs at the SB in the next couple/three years. 

We can rebuild when Matt hangs it up and Julio's contract is gone.

Fixed it for you

You could just see that Trubisky train wreck coming, couldn't you? Rosen, too.

This is why I hope Matt plays at a high level for another decade. It's **** near impossible to land a true franchise QB.

Yes, Compare a top 3 player in a class with a guy who may not even get drafted in the first 2 days of the draft. Brilliant post.

I want to see what if anymore Benkurt has he looked pretty decent last pre season.Has shown improvement.We are looking for a backup for Ryan with what I’m assuming is Schaubs last year I’d be starting there.

We fans crave a coaching staff with a vision. Once we have that then we will know what the draft will look like.

I'd take him 3rd or 4th and he'd be the steal of the draft. I would take Cam Akers out of FSU with my 2nd round pick but if Hursts is there late 3rd early 4th I am snagging him. 

Cam Akers is going to be one of the most underrated players in the draft.  He doesn't have holes to run through like a normal RB.

I would prefer Ben-hur to Hurst 100 times and wouldn’t even blink about it!

^^ This.  If Watson's and Mahomes were that easy to pick and figure out, every team would have a superstar QB.  But alas the draft is riddled with touted players who never live up to the hype like Trubisky, Winston, Mariota, Rosen, Darnold, Josh Allen, Deshone Kizer, Paxton Lynch, Christian Hackenburg, Blake Bortles, and Johnny Manziel all who were taken in round 1 or 2 of the last few years.  None of you could tell me you want any of these dumpster fires over Ryan.

Yeah, a Franchise QB that gives you the playing career of a RB and just up and retires...

I don’t think he’s a franchise quarterback. Pass at #2.

Jalen was garbage at Bama as a throwing quarterback but has developed nicely at Oklahoma with his reads.  The days of a quarterback playing with his back to the defense are gone.  Its pitch and catch now.  Even Ryan does it.   Hurts looks better than Dak Prescott did coming out.  Thats who he reminds me of the most...

He's also gone from playing in a conference with NFL caliber schemes to one where defense is optional.  And Oklahoma's offenses have made a lot of guys look better than they really are.

I ain't saying he's gonna be garage.  I think he could wind up solid if he gets in the right situation.   But thinking you're gonna burn a 2nd round pick and luck into a franchise QB the caliber of Watson or Jackson?  I've seen all three of those guys play extensively before they were on anyone's NFL radar, and Hurts is nowhere near the player Watson is, let alone Jackson.
