    The Case for Brandon Weeden

    Ok, he's 28 years old. So what. Matt Flynn is 26. We aren't getting Robert Griffin. Here are some reasons to draft Brandon early in the second round.
    1. Very accurate passer with a nice gun. Threw for over 4200 yds last season
    2. 6'4" 226 lbs - Robert Griffin is 6'1" / Matt Flynn is 6'2"
    3. Mature and experienced athlete who could be our starter for 10 years.
    4. We don't have to sell the farm to get him and he allows us to draft BPA in the 1st round.

    Some realistic picks for us in round 1 are Trent Richardson, Quinton Coples, Micheal Floyd, Morris Claiborne...I cannot see us reaching for Landry Jones or Tannehill.
    If we pick him in the 2nd round then I can overlook the age factor and he can push or start over Matt Moore in year one.

    I agree. If you think he is an elite QB, then draft him and get a good 5-8 years of elite play out of him. That is a long time to have the most important position covered. It also buys you time to get a replacement ready for him on down the line. I think the age thing is overblown. If he is elite, get him.

    Landry Jones is staying in school and have you not been watching the dolphins for the past ten years?? We have BEEN drafting qbs in the second round and giving up second round picks for back up qbs that's why we haven't been the slightest bit successful and frankly I'm sick of it. We need to draft a qb high and that includes trading the farm to get one. Good qbs don't last long so I say we pick our guy and go get him. I would throw everything we got at the colts honestly luck is going to be a stud.

    Agreed. College is a bubble children play in. You can't overlook Weeden's age. Every QB who has made it in the NFL at an advanced age was out in reality for several years before making it. I think teams realize a developmental point is lost with older QB prospects. I see him going 3rd or later.

    I like the idea of getting him if noting could be worked out to get one of the other two. Some people in the media say that he would go much higher if not for his age.

    If a team like the Jets are ready to move on from Mark buttfumble, I could easily see them reaching for a guy like Weeden in a QB league.

    are you saying he will go sooner or later than the 2nd? I was thinking the 2nd sounds about right. At 28, he should go later but they always overvalue QBs

    I guess people forget who Chris Weinke was. he was damn good probably every bit as good or better than Weeden and he was drafted in 4th round. The age will hurt his draft and you can also write down the jets wont be drafting qb high

    I know you aren't grouping the Dolphins in with "they."
