    Just curious to see who you would draft of the QBs from the '08-'10 drafts. Some of these guys are still unknown due to injuries and less playing time. However, if you were the GM, how would you order the list if you knew what you know now. There are 12 on the list.

    Matt Ryan
    Joe Flacco
    Chad Henne
    Matt Flynn
    Matthew Stafford
    Mark Sanchez
    Josh Freeman
    Sam Bradford
    Tim Tebow
    Jimmy Clausen
    Colt McCoy
    Joe Webb

    Here's mine:

    1. Matt Ryan
    2. Sam Bradford
    3. Josh Freeman
    4. Joe Flacco
    5. Matthew Stafford (was playing great in year two before injury)
    6. Colt McCoy
    7. Joe Webb (physical freak... jury out on decision making)
    8. Tim Tebow
    9. Matt Flynn
    10. Mark Sanchez
    11. Chad Henne
    12. Jimmy Clausen

    Can't argue too much with that. Despite a down year, I think Flacco is still probably #2.

    I think Tebow will be solid. I think Sanchez will eventually implode.

    He hasn't yet? I'm looking forward to it getting worse than this.

    1. Matt Ryan - Solid, consistent. Definitely elite and for the long term, IMHO. Whether he achieves "greatness" or not depends on the team around him from here on.

    Guys I'm hopeful about (in no particular order):
    * Bradford - Early signs are very good.
    * Freeman - Still kinda raw, but early signs are good.
    * McCoy - Very competent so far.
    * Flynn - Very little to go on. Good reads, throws and management, solid backup guy already.

    Guys I have my doubts about (in no particular order):
    * Flacco - Inconsistency really bothers me.
    * Stafford - Lotta talent. Don't think he'll stay healthy enough to be effective.
    * Tebow - Some definite talent, but still just a "gimmick guy" for now.
    * Sanchez - Good arm, but I don't think he'll ever have the self-confidence to be a consistently good NFL QB.
    * Clausen - Just don't see him getting much better than he's shown so far, even though I loathe condemning guys this early on.
    * Webb - Again, one game. Showed more pocket skills than I expected, but still feels like a Seneca Wallace ceiling for him.
    * Henne - Too late for better personal coaching to turn things around for him? IDK.

    Other guys positive/negative (just my feeling based on very limited views):

    POS - probably at least a good quality backup, possibly more
    * Josh Johnson
    * McGee
    * Hoyer

    NEG - not much hope from me:
    * Hanie
    * Jordan Palmer
    * Dennis Dixon
    * Chase Daniel

    Intentionally leaving out rookies Skelton, Pike, Hall, Smith as way too early to judge.

    #12 Jersey

    In this draft I would take a late round flyer on any of the following:

    1.) Kaepernick of Nevada (run and pass threat although I hate the pistol offense)
    2.) Kassum of Houston (a little short and injured most of the year but a very accurate passer)
    3.) Stanzi of Iowa (25 plus TD's and 5 INT? sounds Brady like)

    #70 Jersey

    Ochmed very well be on to something with Stanzi. He's got the same body as Brady and the good decision-making brain. He's like another Matt Cassel, just with a good deal of experience.

    Consider Stanzi Tom Brady's ugly (in his looks) little brother. But I don't know if his arm is strong enough. But the same thing was said of Brady coming out of another Big Ten school. Both guys are winners, that's for sure. Don't forget Iowa defeated a ranked Missouri team in its bowl. Stanzi's a winner if nothing else.

    hmmm strong NE Ohio roots. I bet we do indeed take a long look at him.

    Hoyer, Edelman, Mesko, Price, McDaniels, Belichick, Pioli... you get the drift.
