Brock Osweiler might be a pretty good pick up in round 2-3. If we land Flynn, we will still need to draft a QB for the future. I think he has great potential, and might be a sleeper that could be developed.
What do you guys think?

I have never liked super tall QBs. None have EVER panned out in the NFL.

I would say the prototype size is 6'4" - 6'5"
Joe Flacco is 6'6"
I am not sure that he is good example, but he has had some success.
Another inch or two is really no big deal. It is the other attributes that makes him intriguing.

Wouldn't be the 1st time we had a 6'8 QB , apparently Dan McGwire played 1 season for the fins and he was 6'8 as well.

I think that's an apt comparison.

Osweiler is 6'7", Cam Newton is 6'6".
Really, you guys trying to paint him as the next Dan McGuire?
All I am saying is that the team should give him a shot.
According to the reports I cited, he seems to have some of the physical ability that we are looking for.
Most of the QB's in this draft are smallish at 6' - 6'2"@ 200 lbs. He stands apart from them.

Osweiler is light years better of an athlete than Dan McGuire was. He's still really raw when it comes to understanding a defense, but man does that guy have tools. I wouldn't expect him to touch the field for at least 2-3 years, but if he ever clicked I think he could be scary good.

Oh don't get me wrong I'm all for Osweiler to be a dolphin. The guys a giant and can see the whole field up there in the clouds.
