    Nice topic.....it's never to early to talk about the draft.

    If the draft was today, we would have the 13th pick. I doubt Ireland would take a QB in round one in 2014, but if we continue to struggle, you never know.

    The best young QB's are all mobile, so I doubt we would take a Brady-P.Manning type....I think it's becoming a mobile QB league.

    I like Marcus Mariota.......good arm, speed, mobility, decision making.

    Totally agree on Manziel. I did not catch the Ole Miss performance.

    I too was impressed with how he responded vs. Bama. I havent seen a player take them on the way he did in a while. Youre right, it wouldve been easy to fold it up after that would be back breaking INT for a TD to put Bama up 3 scores. But, Manziel showed what he is made of in that spot.

    I was really impressed with his performance vs. Auburn. They were beating the hell out of him and he kept getting up and coming back right in their face. While the kid lacks maturity and height, he has some serious guts.

    Marcus Mariota..... pass. Im good on him and Bridgewater.

    A couple of those kids you mentioned sound interesting Slimm, especially the kid from San Jose St. I may have to, dare I say...... "put the tape on"

    Lastly, can you give me your take on Aaron Murray?

    Real quick, I think Aaron Murray profiles as a backup at the next level. What I like most about Murray are his mechanics. He's as fundamentally sound as a college quarterback can be.... and he's mastered ball handling. He achieved this very early in his development. He's been polished since his sophomore season. He's mobile, battled tested, experienced, productive, and has excellent intangibles.

    Obviously he's short for a quarterback, and his arm is average. Underthrows the deep ball routinely because his arm just isn't quite strong enough. He's basically a little shorter and slightly more athletic version of Matt Barkley.

    I like Aaron Murray, I just don't believe he has the upside or physical tools to excel in the NFL. We've seen quarterbacks overcome height and average arm strength to be productive pros. Aaron Murray is the type of kid who's capable of doing precisely that. However, his limited physical tools and shortcomings simply do not warrant a 1st round grade. I have him in the 3rd/4th round range. Body of work in the SEC carries a lot of weight and helps his grade.

    Ted, if you were to pick a QB for the Dolphins in the 14 draft...who would u go with? Assuming we stay with Philbin's WCO, but with a different OC and QB Coach.

    Sliimm, does Murray remind you at all of Drew Brees?

    In many ways he does. I've made that comparison for Murray early in his career. However, he'll have to be Drew Brees in order to be successful in the NFL.

    The main difference I see between Murray and Brees is that Murray hasn't shown the ability to fit the ball into tight coverage when his feet aren't set. You have to be able to do that in the NFL to be an elite quarterback.

    Yeah, that's why your 3rd-4th RD grade makes sense to me. It's probably not wise to expect someone to develop in the way that Brees has.

    Gil Brandt really likes Eastern Illinois Jimmy Garoppollo. Same school that Tony Romo went to. The kid has a quick release and has put up great stats. Can't say I have seen him play.

    How bout focus on other positions that we need? And not drive the closest thing we've had to a good quarterback since Danny (and Pennington).

    This isn't a one year fix. You don't win in free agency. We're finally trying to build long-term. It will come down to how we draft.

    Even if we do stick with Tannehill next year (which I think we will) I'd still take Aaron Murray in the 3rd round. Love the way he plays and you can't have too many QBs.
