Its almost November which of course is the annual signal for draft talk time for phins fans.
Id love to hear from Dr. Slimm on this one as the phins of course need to be carefully looking at this years crop of QBs. We all shouldve listened to him when he had reservations about reaching for Tannehill at pick 8 in 2012. Im sorry I didnt, and Dr. Slimm........ Im listening. Where do we go here? Im not familiar with all of these QBs and honestly of the ones Ive seen, Aaron Murray is the only one I think could play in the NFL, Im just not sure if he is a top notch player.
I know there is Bridgewater, but it seems he will go early. Personally, I dont want him anyway. I thought Bridgewater was a good player back when he was a freshman. I remember getting crucified in these parts when I told mountaineer fans he was better than Geno's Myth. I dont see Bridgewater as an elite NFL QB though. I personally wouldnt take him in round 1 but, it appears we are safe from him because he will likely go early.
Then there is Murray. Im not sure where he is projecting right now. When I saw this kid years ago I thought he was an NFL QB. The only hesitation I had with him is he had a tendency to throw INTs at the worst possible times. He seems to have broken that habit lately, but Im still not 100% on him. If I had to say right now, he would be the guy I would take though if he falls to us. I know he has the arm and he seems like a smart kid.
I saw a post by Slimm about Manziel earlier and I think he is right. Manziel is a special player, Im just not sure he can play in the NFL with that size. Im not sure he is 1st round material either. Great competitor, but he needs to curb the attitude a bit. A lot of maturing still to do with this kid.
Slimm, can you give us the run down on this years QB class. Break it down A-Z if you would please. Where will these guys fall in draft position and who would you see as a good pick for the phins?
