Lol never heard of Andy's WCO offense before. You should read up.

The one that produced ZERO TDs this year? I'm sure that's very attractive for FA WRs. Either way, it's FA. The part of the offseason that doesn't get you wins remember? Only build through the draft is the right way!

It could happen. Mariota has big question marks based on him being a complete unknown in terms of being a pro-style pocket passer. Very high risk pick and some GMs may not have the guts to risk a top 5 pick on him.

Too many QB needy teams and only 2 players that should go over a QB. Williams and Cooper. There is a severe drop off after Winston and Mariota. You have Hundley, Grayson, Petty and Mannion after those guys. Maybe Carden, Halliday or Bridge shoots up the board but for the most part you have two potential franchise QB's who will definitely go in the first round and then you have projects with potential.

Unfortunately for teams in need of a QB it's a bad yr to draft one. Any other yr and Winston is a low 1st rd pick at best and mariota a 2nd rounder.

Hackenberg is about the only QB who would trump either of those two and he has holes.

Hackenberg, Jones, Cook, Prescott and Goff are the top prospects. Mariota nor Winston was falling in the way that you say short of severe injury.

Even if I was GM for a QB-needy team in the top 5 I'd still pass on both of them. Winston's physical ability is NFL-caliber but the dude needs a brain transplant for him to have a prayer of being a great NFL QB. Mariota has a shot, and I'd honestly draft him before Winston because he actually has a brain, but the system he comes from and his style of play are scary. Grayson and Carden are the two mid or late round guys I think have a shot at being good, but overall this draft is horrible for QBs.

Neither is a top 5 prospect actually. Winston is a headcase and an idiot, and Mariota has huge questions regarding whether he can make the transition. While it's true teams may reach on them due to a lack of better options, I'm not assuming it will happen, especially twice out of five picks.

Not top 5 is a stretch. Talent wise both are top 5, Mariota has the issue of perception about spread QB's. Winston is a dirt bag. That does not effect their talent level as a prospect. Just their potential draft position.

Each has the tools you want in a QB prospect and NFL teams more and more these days want a QB who can move around in the pocket and make some plays with his feet when needed. Statues are somewhat of a dying breed due to the OL it takes to protect them and the exotic ways defenses can get to them.

You are basically listing all the reasons they are not top 5 prospects, and then saying they are top 5 prospects. They are both reaches in the top 5, but they could still go there just because they are QBs and teams get desperate when it comes to that position.

No I listed what effects their draft stock potentially. They are top 5 prospects regardless of those issues.
As we have seen in the past few drafts, if you are not a legit prospect even at QB they will not take you early.

The CBA has made top 5 picks not so dangerous anymore. While they get paid, it is no where near what teams used to have to pay. And the draft is still a crap shoot. Top 5 picks should always result in starters, but if there is a player that is a position of need like QB and they might be a bit risky, you don't completely screw your franchise over with a bad contract too, anymore.

If the guy doesn't work out to his draft position you move on and he doesn't get a second deal.

No they wouldn't. You could have Luck, Newton & RGIII in this draft and they would still go top 10-12.
Their talent, body of work and potential are of top 5 prospects for this draft. Neither would fall to the 2nd short of injury or regression. Neither would fall past pick 15-16 in a given draft year.

Those were stronger yrs for drafting a QB.

Matt Ryan's draft year was horrific. EJ Manuel's draft year was horrific. Just last year you had 1 QB taken in the top 21 selections. Sam Bradford was the only QB taken in the top 24 selections. Jamarcus Russell was the #1 pick and the next guy taken was Brady Quinn at #21.

More and more teams will pass on drafting a QB too high to avoid the Jake Locker's, Josh Freeman's, Mark Sanchez's, Blaine Gabbert's, Christian Ponder's types.
There has not been a single legitimate overdraft to work out at QB in recent memory. Winston nor Mariota are potential overdrafts, they have franchise level talent and potential. They are projected as potential franchise guys.

They may fail as most QB prospects do, but they are top 5 level talents in almost any draft in the past 10-15 years. This notion that only in this season would they be top draft picks is ludicrous.

Yes they are. Every player is a potential overdraft, especially players with huge question marks like those two have. I agree that neither would drop out of the top 15 any given year, but they are going to go higher than they probably should due to the position they play.

Not every guy is a potential overdraft. Some have a slot where their value is excellent. Anything in the top 5 is good value for Winston and Mariota.
A overdraft is Christian Ponder #12, a overdraft is George Foster in the first round. Yes it only takes one team to love a guy but you cannot overdraft Mariota or Winston.

Of course you can. Just because there is a consensus on a guy doesn't mean that's his actual value.

Teams that draft purely based on talent overdraft regularly because they don't understand how much success in the NFL is dependent on other factors. Winston has #1 talent as a passer but is very likely to implode as a millionaire football player based on past events. That means drafting him #1 is likely overdrafting him. Mariota has top 5 talent but the offense he played in and his tendencies as a QB do not project into a great QB in the NFL. He's basically a project player with a lot of potential. Drafting him in the top 5 is overdrafting him. In a world where losing teams weren't so desperate for a QB Winston would go somewhere between #3 and #7 and Mariota would go somewhere between #10 and #15.

Plenty of teams draft on talent and take risks on guys that pan out. Usually the teams that draft bad due to drafting for need, drafting a fit for their culture instead of a more talented guy who they can mold into it or they simply have no idea what they are doing.

Every prospect is a risk in some way. You can forgive stupidity if the talent is there.

There's no reason to keep a roster spot just for a guy like Norwood. He's returned a total of 4 punts in his life. It would be preferable if we get a guy who can also play some receiver, unless they think he can do that too. But he's hardly untouchable

Dockett has been my favorite non-Bronco since he came into the league. Worth considering if knee is OK. Cut players won't impact compensatory formula when in house guys leave. He can still play.

I expect Miami to sign Charles Clay to a extension with Hartline and Gibson cut. Setting the potential market value for Thomas, Gresham, etc.

Clay prediction: 4 years, 25/27M.

You didn't denote partial or full. You just said, acl and 34 pass.
He was a top notch player before the ACL injury and even at 34 isn't likely to lose much due to the injury as ACL injuries are not what they once were even at his age.

Josh McCown signing a three year deal with the Browns would be laughable, if they weren't so pathetic and inept at everything they do.

Whose the GM of that team, Grimace or Big Bird?

I'm no genius, but I know without a shard of doubt that I could build and run a team better than that clown factory.

I was no huge fan of Brian Hoyer, but he's a lot better of a QB at 29 years old than Josh McCown, who will be 36 years old next season and has looked like dog **** for his entire career, outside of a small stretch of games in 2013 with the Bears.

I thought Jimmy Haslam might be a decent owner when he bought the team, but he's the biggest dumb **** of them all.

All that Flying J Fool has done is **** up again and again.

I'm a loyal fan and stick with my teams, but I don't blame Browns fans for wanting to kick that team into Lake Erie.

The worst part for them is knowing the team that Art Modell moved ended up being one of the best run franchises in football and have won a couple of Super Bowls in Baltimore.

Their best player Josh Gordon is suspended for all of next season, the QB they hung their hopes on is in rehab with 'serious' issues', their best coach, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan got out of Dodge after one dysfunctional season, and their GM was texting the coaches during games last season, which is a huge no-no....and they will lose draft picks because of that.

To top it off, their shiny headed bald coach was an asshole high school coach not that long ago and who is a dead ringer for that smarmy porn producer, whose name I can't think of....he's made a lot of female glory hole videos.

They sure seem to want to build their D, they could use Suh, though who couldn't. I think Kelly would go with Spiller over Murray just based on money and his belief in his system. I don't see Kelly overpaying for a RB when he got what he did out of Sproles, with Spiller on the market and the draft ahead.

If we weren't loaded at RB I would love Spiller over Hillman but Broncos can't afford to pay big money in FA for an RB with their other needs.

He'd fit better as the 3-tech DE and I think he would be fine there. his impact would likely diminish if he is 2 gapping, but I think he can play in that scheme just fine. if a team invests that $ in him, though, I'm sure they will scheme him into position regardless of the base d.

The decision to move McCoy accomplishes a couple of things.

Obviously, the first thing it does is bring Alonso to Philadelphia. An inside linebacker who played for Kelly at Oregon, Alonso will partner with Mychal Kendricks to give the Eagles a dynamic pair on the inside. That probably means the end of the road for DeMeco Ryans, who tore his Achilles tendon halfway through the 2014 season.

The trade also removes McCoy's $11.95 million number from the Eagles' salary cap. Kelly's outlook was summarized by Herremans in a radio interview Monday. Herremans said basically that Kelly prioritizes the quarterback and the offensive line.

"Other than that," Herremans told 97.5 The Fanatic, "I think that Kelly feels like he can kind of -- you know, the system will take care of it."

If we weren't loaded at RB I would love Spiller over Hillman but Broncos can't afford to pay big money in FA for an RB with their other needs.

In all likelihood if we lose JT and Welker retires or moves on, Spiller would be a great receiving option out of the backfield plus be a threat on the rush. As a bonus for special teams he'd kill it on punt returns.

Keep either Hillman or Ball as insurance but a CJx2 featured backfield plus our WR corp would be awesome. Find a way to make it work Mr. Elway!

All the Bills wanted when they drafted EJ Manuel was a veteran to play & mentor him. Kolb didn’t work. Orton tried. Now Cassel.

Myers has been the Texans' center the past seven seasons and never missed a start. Due $6 million in the final year of his contract and scheduled to count $8 million against the cap, it was a logical move to move on from the 33-year-old. Myers was a top-three run-blocking center at Pro Football Focus this past season, but finished 33rd out of 41 as a pass blocker. Myers may resurface in Denver with old pal Gary Kubiak. At 286 pounds, he's built for a zone-blocking schemehttp://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3373/chris-myers

He'll be 34 this season. I suppose if he's an upgrade it makes sense but I'd like to think they could do better...

If he is bad at pass blocking wouldn't that be a bad thing since that is Manning's Kryptonite being pressured up the middle?

Lofton will count $9.25 million against the Saints' salary cap this season, and could be a part of some massive money shuffling. The team is currently more than $21 million over the threshold for 2015.

Lofton's dead money is roughly $5 million, which makes the trade route the first -- and most convenient - route for New Orleans to take, though it's uncertain they'll find takers at that price.

Even in a versatile Rob Ryan scheme, Lofton played a heavy amount -- almost 1100 snaps -- in 2014 and registered 100 tackles and a forced fumble.

Only a few teams would consider trading for him. They know the Saints are strapped. Likely to be cut. Lowers any leverage at getting a good return via a pick.

I hear Miami may be cutting Ellerbe and Wheeler as well.
