Pick the Draft

Talk about the world of sports here. And also a sub-forum to talk about anything else.

If Bridgewater is there, they will take him. Bridgewater is more NFL ready, but hey, they said that about Ponder too. Wouldn't surprise me they pass on QB with first pick and then move up into the late first if one of the top 4 is still there. Give it a go and submit your picks, starts getting hard after the first 10 or so. Especially trying to predict if someone trades up or down, or a player starts free falling. Also, some teams draft for position others draft best player available.

Nice. Make sure to put a player in at #29. Even if NE trades down, you still get 9 points if you have the right player in that position, no matter who drafts there. Sure hope you get 3 points for your No. 8 pick. :D

I am higher on Carr than most. I don't know if he can really be a quality starter or not, but he certainly has the arm talent and football pedigree. I really am not that high on Bridgewater. I feel like he will get pounded. I didn't like an interview I saw with him awhile back when he basically said he just plays football because his mom wanted him to.

To me he seems like a small guy that will takes hits and not be durable. And like I said earlier, I somewhat question his true passion.

Aside from that, I just never loved him as a passer in college. He just doesn't jump out at me as a big time guy.

TB was the exact same height and weight as Carr at the combine.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... _web#gid=8

As far as the passion thing goes the only story I heard was he wanted to quit football in HS so he could take care of his mother who had cancer. Impossible for me to hold that against him. There was another story that after his freshman year his QB coach told him if he wanted to be an NFL QB he'd have to do "x y and z" to get there and TB did everything asked of him. His QB coach broke down crying when telling this story earlier.

Video is from the last regular season game after his sophomore year.


If the draft would have been held right after the senior bowl he easily would be the first QB taken, but so many people are reading so much into his pro day they're dropping him, supposedly.

Alright you obviously know more about him than me. I'll disregard the passion thing. I just haven't been overly impressed with him. I could be wrong, just my opinion. To me, He's a 2nd round pick. I don't think he'll ever be a pro bowler, and I don't think he'll lead someone to a super bowl. Can he win some games as a starter? Maybe, I don't know.

Talk this morning that all the QBs might plummet. No one seems fully sold on any of these guys. The question these teams have to answer is not which QB is the best in this draft, but are any of these QBs franchise type guys. I don't know if any of them are, in which case you go get the best available player and wait for a QB in next year's draft.
