I would take a payton manning over a vick but I would take a young john elway not a statue or steve young over payton in today's game.

  • Bart Scott is an idiot, Mahomes 40: 4.80. Mac Jones :4.79. Last I checked Mahomes is a pocket QB. That Brady guy does pretty good to for a guy who can’t squat 500 pounds, do 20 reps of 225, or run a 4.60. Don’t get me wrong Fields and Lance are impressive, but last I checked Lawrence and Jones won chips against mobile QB’s. I like Fields upside, Lance looks like a bust imo, but saying drafting Mac Jones at 3 is a fireable offense is ignorant, drafting any QB that high who doesn’t pan out it is.

  • I just think this QB class is overhyped. They all could be pro-bowlers, but the tape is so limited on three of them, that spending a top 10 pick is risky. Fields is listed as last, but I think he is really a very close second.

  • I agree with what the panel is saying. It's a mobile QB environment nowadays in the NFL. If a team had to pick between the two different types my bet is every team picks a mobile guy. Don't compare Brady... Brady is an anomaly.. I don't care if he's won 50 superbowls. Bottom line is you draft a mobile QB . That's what every team desires if you ask them. Look at Mahomes, Russ Wilson they won superbowls too. I would take a Mahomes, or a Watson type QB over a statue any day. It's not even close. We need QB's to extend plays if they have a so and so O-line. Not sit back there and get smacked around and possibly injured. Yeah I know they can get injured too while you run around but it's not the same. I like Jones but not for the Niners. I'm dying for my team to get a mobile guy at number 3 spot. Z. Wilson would be ideal but I doubt the jets would leave him alone. Next step is for the Niners to go for Lance. I will be disappointed if the Niners pick M. Jones. .....First pick would be Z. Wilson, but if he isn't around out of the remaining QB's then it would be Lance and then Fields.

Who wants to draft a sitting duck who’s athletic abilities are limited? Today’s NFL you better have a mobile QB. Sheiiiit! Even the the doormat Giants have a mobile QB. He’s trash but he does run straight pretty fast when he don’t trip on himself. 🤣

  • It's definitely an advantage to have a athletic qb but it's silly to say an offense can't be great without one

    Michael AgneMichael Agne9 days ago
    • JAJAJA, Athletic quarterbacks are no Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. He doesn't rely on running and relies off his great accurate passing ability. I'd take an accurate passer over a runningback pretending to be a quarterback. People want to find a quarterback that is both but really both don't exist and yeah Wilson runs at times but he already has gone on record stating he hates running because he knows it can result in an injury and he'd rather throw the ball because he actually is a great passer. There's not much of an advantage of a running qb because they eventually get banged up.

  • I'm going to ride with Chris Simms, who is best friend's with Kyle. The pick will be Mac Jones, the most cerebral QB of the draft who is a stronger version of Kirk Cousins but with the mental acumen of Joe Burrow. If you don't think its Mac Jones, ask yourself this question. When did Shanahan's offense work best? Matt Ryan's year, the Kirk Cousin years. Who plays like those two guys? Mac Jones. Fields and Lance are projects that need time to develop or they will bust. For those of you who are going to drop out college stats of Fields (Lance has none), Mac Jones lead all of college in QBR, passer rating and completion percentage (broke the all-time record in two of them).
