    People were unimpressed with Darnold as a prospect? Guy looked like a surefire top pick as a sophomore iirc. I think he regressed a tad when some talent graduated but still.

    36 turnovers in 27 games in college. I don’t like QBs that can’t hold onto the ball

    Interesting Locked On NFL Draft podcast with the SF guy today. Said Shanahan basically already told them it’s not going to be Mac. Fields is who he said he thinks it’ll be (not that it matters).

    He said when Shanahan met with the media after the trade he was asked about Kirk Cousins and how Cousins seems like the ideal quarterback for his system. And then Shanahan said it’s ridiculous how people assume Cousins is his prototype. He then mentioned more of the high-ceiling guys like Mahomes and Elway. I guess the media came away from that thinking it’ll be Fields or Lance since the ceilings are so much higher.

    Add Shanahan to the long list of people who thought Mac sucked

    The idea that a Shanahan system is tailored to an unathletic type qb has always been silly. He's adapted to fit them, but at the end of the day his system is a lot of stretch zone runs and, in an ideal world, your qb can bootleg off those for easy passes or straight scrambles.

    Robert Mays discussed the exact same media conversation on his pod and came away convinced the pick was going to be Fields as well.

    If Fields is the pick at 3, Belichick will surely trade up for #Mac10, ensuring another 20 years of Patriots hegemony. So be careful what you wish for.

    I still don’t get how Fields isn’t #2 behind Lawrence. At least it seems like SF is going to do the right thing and take him at #3.

    Wilson's arm is not quite as strong as Josh Allen's but seems like it's in the ballpark. The advanced stats stuff seems to suggest Wilson > Lawrence

    Jeremiah is the guy who had Kizer as his best QB in 2017 followed by Mitch... And didn't have Mahomes in his top 50 prospects.

    yep. don't have to watch a whole lot of highlights of Wilson to understand why NFL people have fallen in love with him. And I'm saying this as a Falcons fan who would love to see us take Fields.

    I had to look this up, that was his 1.0. His final? top 50 (top 50 4.0) Had 1. Deshaun 2. Trubisky 3. Kizer for QBs. So still not great but not nearly as bad as that 1.0

    WAIT. Mock 5.0 had 1. Trubisky 2. Mahomes 3. Deshaun. Browns trading up to get Trubisky (lol of course) Cardinals taking Mahomes and Chiefs taking Watson. What world that would have been. Browns relatively the same though.

    I like Mills out of the 2nd tiers of QBs. I'd be ok with the #Washington Football Team snagging him with one of their 3rd round picks.

    4th round? Thought this kid was getting mocked as a 1st rounder before the season? He just completely tank his last year?
