    1) Cam Newton
    2) Blaine Gabbert
    3) Jake Locker
    4) Colin Kaepernick
    5) Ricky Stanzi
    6) Pat Devlin

    Do not like Ryan Mallet, Christian Ponder, or Greg McElroy. I don't understand the love for either Ponder or McElroy around here, except for the Alabama connection to McElroy.

    I'd rather us not take a QB at 8, if we do I'd rather it be Newton before Gabbert but either is ok.

    I'm hoping it's Locker or Kaepernick in the 2nd, maybe Kaepernick can be had in the 3rd, I don't know.

    I'd really like Devlin as a late round pick, poor man's Joe Flacco.

    He comes off as an has questionable work ethic and now character concerns and is a statue as a rookie. Really looking up for a QB with less wheels than Peyton and no where near his work ethic and intangibles. He will be a nice target for Mathis and Freeney but that is about it.

    Oh but his arm is so strong :rolleyes:

    I have to agree with the OP. I can't believe that staying for your senior season is ever a bad thing. As bad as Washington was, I don't see how Locker could drop off from the hands down #1 QB last year to being ranked below Blaine Gabbert? Sorry I don't buy it.

    I want us to take Von Miller @ #8 and am hoping like crazy that Locker falls to us in the 2nd. Even Mallett in the 2nd would be sweet. If that doesn't happen then I'd be ok with Ponder in the 3rd or Kellen Moore in the 5th.

    Purely on watching film, plus the draft grade.

    1. Blaine Gabbert (1st)
    2. Cam Newton (2nd)
    3. Jake Locker (2nd)
    4. Christian Ponder (3rd)
    5. Ryan Mallett (3rd)

    I would prefer Locker over Newton though. And, the Parcells Rule is horrible. If you're going to restrict yourself to 4 year starters, then you are truly doing yourself a disservice. And, it doesn't always work, look at Chad Henne.

    And, for all of you down on Gabbert, the reason he's so highly rated is because of his accuracy. He is easily the most accurate of the consensus top 4 QBs.

    He's really nothing like Flacco, they just went to the same school. Weaker arm, smarter, but really struggled in the East-West game.

    What if he was never supposed to be the #1 pick? If you want proof of how prevalent ESPN is, this is the perfect example. One man's opinion (McShay's) spread like wildfire through the media. I think once it came down to it, he would've been a 2nd round pick.

    This is a perfect example of a round 2 QB and it's your boy Gabbert. He makes some terrible throws and he leads his receivers into near death collisions.

    That man is the reason Gabbert was suddenly a consensus 1st rounder....

    I've seen that video. After he settled down, I saw an accurate QB who used his arm strength to fit it into tiny windows. His system is built around short screens which will lead to immediate hits, that's not Gabbert's fault.


    You're definitely wrong. It may seem like that to someone who follows the draft one year at a time, but he was considered a top prospect in 2012. No one expected him to declare for this draft.

    You're entitled to your opinion...I guess we are going to have to agree to disagree on Blaine Gabbert and see what happens on draft day. :D

    You can't just switch teams for dumb reasons like that.

    If our owner and coach were serial killers/rapists, then you'd be a wise man to switch.

    Otherwise, it's just silly.
