Logan Thomas? nerd.giflaugh.gif
EJ Manuel.
Not a lot there really. Those are big time projects outside of Geno.

I think Colin Klein is gonna make his bread/butter in the NFL as a WR. He's got experience there, so it's not going to be like Matt Jones 2.0 I think laugh.gif

*Not this year....but Marcus Mariota has to be licking his chops at the prospect of playing a little zone read on the next level.

Colin Klen (@ WR) will run into the same problems that Matt Jones (aside from Cocaine) ran into and that other WR's like Reggie Williams ran into. Do you see him being able to get off press coverage and get separation?
post #33 of 2957
WR? I would peg him as more of a TE if he gets beefier. What's going to happen to Klein is what should've happened with Tebow, but Tebow more of an H back type.

That's a good question.

I just came across this as well.

Responding to a previous report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Collin Klein would not be invited to the Senior Bowl next January, ESPN NFL Draft analysts Mel Kiper, Jr. and Todd McShay offered their take on Klein’s pro prospects on SportsCenter on Thursday morning. Both believe that, if Klein wants to play in the Senior Bowl and earn his place in the NFL, it will have to be at wide receiver.

“Phil Savage is a great guy that handles the Senior Bowl now in terms of selecting the players,” Kiper said. “What I think Phil is going to look at is a position change to a wide receiver entity. Todd and I have talked about that a lot, not playing quarterback in the NFL. Go down to Mobile, Alabama to show he can catch the football. He did it as a [freshman] when he caught a touchdown pass at Kansas State. He’s 6-5, 226 pounds. I think given that opportunity, Todd, to play that receiver position, would maybe help him become a little bit of a higher draft choice. Certainly, I don’t think he’ll be a quarterback in the NFL.

651 - maybe if he could put on another 10 pounds or so, he could try to find his way as a hybrid TE, like Aaron Hernandez.

That's funny because I thought of the same name (Hernandez), but I never saw him as a WR so I don't know just how versatile he can be.

You really think so? I think his biggest issue between now and when he declares is his frame. Dude needs to bulk up a bit.

Think Sheldon Richardson from Missouri blows up the combine, and will be a top 10-15 pick

please baby jesus let the eagles get luke joeckel somehow..

 

 

 

 

 

 

he can come in right away and start at right tackle for us... then just need the rest of these things to happen to have a much improved oline:

 

1) hopefully peters can come back healthy next year (left tackle)

2)  then we can put herremans back at guard

3)  then hopefully kelce comes back healthy at center

4) then watkins and mathis can battle it out for the right guard spot

post #49 of 2957
This is the main boss that runs all the team sites I work with. I think he has about 7-8 open now. All the AFC East teams, and now he's opened a Chiefs, Lions, and I think a Browns one. But this is his personal mock as of yesterday.

Sad to see my boy Giovani declare, but I wish him well at the next level.  He should be a first round lock, no?

post #54 of 2957
Really though...where do you guys think Barkley is going to be drafted? Has he fallen all the way to the 2nd round? If so, I want my Bucs to draft him. Freeman is a free agent after next year and I'm not down to get Sanchezed like the Jets are right now.

Who knows? With the way the way this league fiends over QB's, I wouldn't be surprised if a team reached for him. I don't think he should be drafted until late first at the earliest though, but most those teams will have their Q's so 2nd round is where I'd put him for the moment.

I think people are living in the moment on Barkley a bit here.

I know he isnt anything special but a lot of the hate he gets is because he didnt live up to expectations this year not because he isnt a better prospect that a lot of QB's in this class.

I will be surprised if he is any less than the second QB off the board but then again I could see him being the 5th.

This is going to be one polarizing QB class.

It does not help that 6 rookie QB's came in this year, start and played relatively well.

Do you think Barkley has a higher upside than Leinart/Sanchez?

Outside of Carson Palmer, USC QBs in the NFL = yuck

FWIW, I think Geno is the first QB off the board in this year's draft (might even go #1 overall)....after him there are A LOT of questions. Two first round darkhorses are Tyler BRay, EJ Manuel, and Ryan Nassib. I actually like all of them over Barkley. Like you said...it's a VERY polarizing QB class.
post #58 of 2957
Barkley's talent level is very very similar to Leinart/Sanchez and if anything will separate him from them it is between his ears.

I am always going to side with the QB's who have the best pocket presence and move in the pocket to buy time to throw down field and Geno excels at that but ehh 1st overall..
post #59 of 2957
I've seen a few mocks with Tavon Austin going to New England. I don't wanna see Austin in a Pats uniform bruh.

I remember when Sanchez was getting drafted almost all the scouts said he had that "alpha dog" DNA you need to be a top tier QB. With some saying he had a higher ceiling than Stafford. I'm with theone Barkley isn't as bad as the season he had. I like to think he's better than the 5th QB taken but with these mocks & other reports you never know.

Most damning thing was when Pete Carroll said Sanchez was not ready for the NFL.
