and so was Jeff George and Ryan Leaf and Jamarcus Russell
Agree. I have watched David Wilson (RB-VT) for his 3 year career, and despite being a physical freak his vision and instincts are terrible for a running back. The amount of holes he misses is unreal.
I cannot see how he is in the top 15 besides being a physical freak
Me too. I wouldn't even hesitate
What is horrendous about it? His board is not a reflection of how he thinks they will be taken. It is how he ranks the prospect in terms of future success and their abilities at their position.
QB evaluation thoughts from someone who probably was certain that Jason Campbell was an all-Pro.
Grain of salt.
CB Stephen Gilmore @ #13 seems way to high to me... I watched all the Gamecock games. He is very solid, but not elite.
David Carr, Vince Young, Alex Smith, etc...
No Burm, you are wrong here. Jeff George was the best passing QB I ever saw. He had the best arm I've seen, even better then Elway's IMO. Ryan Leaf was a also a gifted passing QB and Russell was just, well, nothing. I was never a fan of Russell so I don't even include him in this discussion but none of those guys were athletes like RG3. I don't accept that comparison because two were basically pocket QBs (although Leaf had more athletic ability then did George). I would not say that they had more upside then Luck. Luck is the best QB prospect since Elway probably but I would say that RG3 has more upside then does Luck.
Again, if I were picking, I would take Luck 100 times out of 100 but you are wrong in your assesment of these other QBs and RG3 IMO.
George and Leaf were also mental midgets and terrible locker room guys.
I do agree with you on George's arm, the ball coming out of his hand was a thing of beauty
Found this interesting...his mock has us trading down to 21 and taking Dennard.
