im very interested to watch this guy play in preseason, jsut to see if he has enough in him to invest a few years making him into a QB or not. hes got the size of a prototypical NFL QB, and i think that combined with him being very smart got him drafted, not really anything he did on the football field. anyone think hell ever become a starter?

He's got some physical tools. He's still a major project, but its always nice to get a young prospect onto the roster who has some things the coaches can work with over time.

The odds are staked hard against him.

I liked the pick but its also the one that I least expect to pay dividends.

it would not shock me if he became a good starting QB. he has intelligence, size, and raw talent. it just depends on how well he takes to coaching.

He's got a long ways to go.

That being said, he does have just about everything you can ask for in a QB. I believe it was Woody Paige who said Bradenstater was the best looking QB in OTA's.

Size, smarts, and passable physical tools.

He's all yours, McDaniels.

He'll be the reason we don't draft a real QB in '10. (besides the fact we spent our other 1st on Smith).

He's a possibe NFL starter. possible.

Like Bigfoot.

That's what I'm afraid of. Good chance McCoy will be around for our second.

At least Tom Brady had a very proven track record at Michigan... at least people were noticing him and he showed some flashes....

Can't say the same about Tom Brandstater.... how many people (fans, sports writer, coaches) had even heard of this guy during his college career?

Hey, he was on the index card right with Quinn and Bruton.

Back Off!

I know so little about him that I couldn't guess as to whether he could become a starter eventually. I will say this, if he has the potential, we have the perfect coaching staff to bring it out.

I think a lot of people are going to be quite happy with how McD and his staff coach the players on the field and in the film room. These newbies are about to start paying dividends... unfortunately, they'll also be handicapped as they're paying for their offseason mistakes too.

It'll be inetresting. I think it will all depend on how this season goes. If Orton does horrible, guarantee we go aggresively after some QB,,,, Maybe Tebow?lol I would love to be on the mane after we drafted him, it would be hilarious.

I fully understand your point, but one thing you need to consider is that the failure rate of 1st round QB's is ridiculously high.

Look at 2002: David Carr, Joey Harrington, Patrick Ramsey.
How about 2003: Byron Leftwich, Kyle Boller, Rex Grossman.
2004? J.P. Losman.
2005? Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Alex Smith!
2006 brings us Vince Young and Matt Leinhart.
It might be too early to give up on them, but what are your thoughts on JaMarcus Russell and Brady Quinn in 2007?
Going back a little further, 1999 was a banner year with Tim Couch, Akili Smith, and Cade McNown.
Remember Ryan Leaf in 1998?
How about Jim Druckenmiller in 1997?
Now I'm cherry picking, but how about that can't miss prospect Heath Shuler in 1994?

Do you get my point?

the '10 class is exceptionally rich. And with McGenius, we'll pick the right one, umm, if we had both picks.

In fact, the whoile draft is better next year. Billichick trded down and got a loaded draft in '10.

doesn't mean a thing really. Fresno state in the late aughts versus Michigan in the lat 90's. Who do think is going to show more "flashes?"

Of course I think a better example is Matt Cassel, who didn't even get to play in college really and was turned into a servicible, even solid, starter.

Perhaps. But if 5 QB's are taken in the first round next year it's probably a safe bet that at least 3 of them will bust. Do you think any of the '10 prospects are "sure things"?

And.... Didn't he finish college in three years and started working on his graduate degree? He's a smart kid and there is really no pressure on him this year, or probably next year. That's a great thing for his development.

Put your money on him to compete by 2010, but will have a much better shot by 2011.
