I liked David Carr, initially. I think mentioning him in the same breath as Tim Couch is ridiculous though. Tim Couch epitomized a bust. If we shake off the perception that Carr never made it as a starter and understand that he's been in this league, on a roster, and used as viable backup now for 11 years is a testement to how good he really is in the grand scheme. Most Q's like that flameout real quick and after their first opportunity.
Everybody in here needs to also have an understanding that every year we hear about QB's and the questions that define them.
who's more pro ready? who's more equipped to learn a new system?who's able to play under center?
When in reality there is zero science to it and the collegiate game has very little translation to the NFL game. It's all gotta be inside the heart and head of that player to decide if he is going to be good or great.
I don't need to name all the 1st round busts or even the late round Gem QB's at this point to sway your decision. But I thought Id let you know that Trent Edwards years ago was co-signed by the late great QB guru Bill Walsh as a NFL ready QB who can make all the throws and would be a franchise signal caller for 15 years. We all know how that turned out.
So all in all, I feel as if the most competitive guy should go off the board first because there isn't a clear cut no.1 guy and if a team feels manziel is that guy then. Why Not? Edited by 49ersaaron8 - 3/3/14 at 8:19am
Sold NT on Moncrief and Jimmy Football. Another one I'm liking a whole lot is Dontae Johnson in R4. Size/frame, runs well, closes on the ball. Still raw, needs to get better at tackling and with ball skills.
