    I'm excited about this guy. Always liked him. Was my #6 ranked QB ahead of Garappolo, McCarron & Savage to name a few.

    I thought he was in there with those guys too. He never should have slid to the 6th, we lucked out.

    6th best QB? Too bad there are only ever 1-3 good QBs out of every draft.

    I liked mettenberger earlier in my scouts. At one point I tried using Brady as a similar prospect but Brady has better control of his pocket movement. I'm still happy about the 6th round.

    I hate Savage I'm so glad Houston took him.

    Was unaware pre draft ranking are gospel and if you don't get one of the top 3 you mine as well not even take one....

    Your statement is typically true but the key is which 3. We might have chronologically chosen the 6th QB but that doesn't mean he can't be better than a good chunk of the guys selected ahead of him. I'd wager that he is.

    Yes, I know. It was in responses to someone who had him ranked as the number 6 QB. Which implies there are give guys better which would mean there is next to no chance he will be any good. If ZM was his best or even third best QB it would be a better sign.

    And I do think he is better than several selected ahead of him. My hope is that he is much better than all selected ahead of him. Especially Bortles.

    What im most excited about is we finally have real coaches to help develop these players! I didn't really want us to draft him, but I'm curious to see how Mettenberger does, especially since we got him in the 6th round cant lose much, but hopefully we won't need him to this season.

    And I may be wrong about the guys I put ahead of him. Hopefully I am
