    Since no other quarterback in the draft could hold a candle to Devlin in terms of being very accurate across multiple seasons, it is absurd that no team was willing to reward him for his college football career. He should have been at the very least highly drafted. In a perfect world, he would have been the first quarterback chosen.

    Devlin's college career is also superior to the career of former Delaware and current Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

    For his college career, Flacco completed 63.4 percent of his passes for 7.5 yards per pass attempt, both worse than Devlin's 66.0 completion percentage and 7.8 yards per pass attempt.

    My goodness.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    IDK what everyone sees in Devlin. I like him as a developmental qb but nothing more the thought of him entering a game in 2013 downright scares me. We need someone to help Tannehill develop. we need a veteran qb who can win a game or two if needed. Matt Moore would be perfect as a backup again in the future. I know he will probably leave.. but we need someone other than Devlin.. There is a huge difference between Philbin praising Devlin and wanting him to be his backup

    I like Devlin, I am encouraged by his growth since he has been here but I still think Moore would be the absolute ideal #2. If not, I am good going with Devlin as the backup and drafting the #3 late in the draft.
    I agree. Matt Moore has proven more than once that he can come into a game and win it. He has also proven that he can lead a team for extended periods and win. He is the logical choice to be the back up. He needs to be paid like a low tier starter to stay, otherwise he will bolt for sure
