Some comments on this QB class from folks around the NFL

If Eli's brother wasn't Peyton Manning he'd be talked about differently too.  He won 2 Super Bowls when Peyton only had 1 until the waning days of his career, and unlike Peyton, he was a huge part of winning both of them (Peyton was a huge part of the one with Indy, not so much the one with Denver).

I can't stand Eli Manning.  He is whiny, entitled, and he looks like he's had a lobotomy.  But that dude has a killer instinct that is rare among NFL QBs.  He was a great QB to be sure.

Lobotomy?  Bwahahahahaha!

Don't worry, when the only comment that can be made about a QB is "he had a lot of talent around him."  As the draft nears, it gets harder and harder to discredit his accomplishments. I don't thi

Drafting Trask at any point in the draft would be like drafting Ryan to learn behind himself. The TATF mobile QB droolers would go nuts.

I suppose the reason no one said that about Joe Burrow was because LSU's offense had been Stone Age for over a decade. Mac Jones is coming from an offense where the previous two starters put up great numbers, too. 

Great numbers indeed, though not the best statistical QB season in college football like Mac Jones.

Zach Wilson is a mental case

There's another quote out there from the same scout saying he's 'an entitled brat/know it all.'

Regardless, he's got a bad injury history and is a one year wonder. I think whoever drafts him will be looking for a QB again in 2-4 years.

I get that same feeling.  Maybe I'm just old, but I've seen this show before.

the guy is getting no love because he’s not considered a dual threat QB.

Joe Burrow is a lot more mobile than Mac Jones which may be why he wasn't thought of as so dependent upon players around him.

Trey Lance:

"Playing in that one game [against Central Arkansas] was a mistake, but he has such nice traits that someone will fall in love with his game. Even if he doesn't become a great passer, he's so dangerous with his legs that he can start in this league." — AFC area scout

I hate seeing or hearing comments like this. This is what's making it difficult for guys like Lamar Jackson, and Cam Newton during his early days. This kid could be better than all of them.

This should be an alarm for us all, me included, about putting too many QBs in that top five basket.

I have certainly believed that the top three picks will be QBs, probably after some dealing. After reading this, I still believe Fields will be top 3, but I might be wavering a bit on Wilson. He might be a guy who slides a bit lower.
 

Lance might get drafted a lot lower than people think. Bottom of round one? 

As for Jones and Trask, I still see Jones as a day two guy, think Andy Dalton, and (just my opinion) the only thing separating Trask from trash is an H. I bet NFL teams think the same.

WEll, I can't decide which one of the two I like best if we did draft one.. but If we did , I'd want to trade down and get a QB so to have more picks.. And because of that and the 2 players I like if we did take one would be Justin Fields or Tray Lance ,, I'm drawn to Lance but I have a real feeling that Fields will be special.. Because of his gift to run like a great RB if he has too.   But the problem with that is ,, I wouldn't want to let my Franchise QB taking a lot of Chances for the opposing D# to try and knock him out when they tackle him running.. Just to big of a risk with a Running QB.  And for that reason ,, I would have to take Lance.  I just like his upside.. for the pick.

I happen to believe that Lance will get picked earlier than expected ... For where he'll be picked. I really like him .. WE could actually take a top DE and a top TE and then trade back up and get Lance.. That right there would make our Draft amazing.. by itself.  But this would only happen if we trade down with our 4 ;

Excluded Lawrence from this because he clearly won't be an option if the Falcons elect to draft a QB. 

Justin Fields:

"I'm not sold on the scheme making him NFL-ready, but everything you hear [from coaches at Ohio State] is that he's really smart and well-prepared. I love his athleticism, but his arm is just OK. Scheme is going to matter a lot for him. I hope wherever he goes they build around him with run-after-catch receivers and a good run game." — NFL quarterbacks coach

"You are betting on his continued development for sure,"

"Fields' running ability gives you comfort as he learns the offense."

Zach Wilson:

"He fits where the league is headed—playmaker with a big arm who makes a lot of wow throws and can win with his legs. I have no idea how ready to play he is because the scheme is backyard football and he hasn't played anyone." — NFL college scouting director

“Johnny Manziel comp without the drugs. He is fun to watch, but is he a 1-year flash in the pan? He’s a backyard baller who is fun to watch." - NFC East Scout 

Trey Lance:

"Playing in that one game [against Central Arkansas] was a mistake, but he has such nice traits that someone will fall in love with his game. Even if he doesn't become a great passer, he's so dangerous with his legs that he can start in this league." — AFC area scout

Mac Jones:

"You have to worry about the talent around him, especially last year, but he throws a beautiful deep ball and I love his toughness and moxie." — NFL quarterbacks coach

Kyle Trask:

"Very scheme-specific player. Can win from the pocket and has a good arm. Best asset is his vision and putting the ball in a spot his guys can make a play on it. Lack of mobility is going to be the biggest knock." — Former NFL general manager

 

FIELDS  ???  Heck he couldn't even beat out Jake Fromm.  OSU is what made him look decent.

I’ve been saying for months now that Jones reminds me of a more athletic Eli Manning.  Less goofy so to speak.  I personally think that’s a good thing.  Eli could make all the throws, understood the game of football, and played big on big stages.  If he had an ounce of athleticism Eli’s career would be talked about differently. 

Jones, while not michael Vick, is mobile enough.  But what’s most impressive about Jones is his pocket awareness and anticipation.  He is an elite prospect in that realm, and that’s what gets him out of sticky situations the most. 
 

I would be OK with taking Jones later in the draft, I think trading down at #4 would be the smart move. If we drafted a QB at #4, no matter who it is, the People who want that poor guy to step in and lead this team ,  as soon as Mat Ryan has a mediocre game , would be howling for it.  Last thing we need at this point in our new regime, and semi rebuild, is a QB controversy.  Talk about a major setback, and dividing the team.

Imagine this board's reaction if Fields drops to our 2'nd pick and we still don't take him.

The world as we know it would cease to exist! It's going to be bad enough when we don't pick him at #4

With having noodle arm matt for years, saying Fields arm strength is "ok"...... nah... I want a qb that can throw a ball on a rope 75 yards down the field!!!     Sorry not sorry 👋 😐 

Hot dog vendors union approves this message. They didn’t have many catches after Byron Leftwich left.
