  • There is a difference between trends in the game evolving. All these running quarterbacks will be out of the league in 5 years. I'll take an old fashioned pocket QB with a good arm and a high football IQ every time.

  • This is why I canceled my cable subscription 12 years ago. Haven't missed it for a day. These corporate media sports guys are so illogical that they actually have been suckered into thinking Mac Jones & Trey Lance are NFL caliber QBs. And not only that, now Mac Jones is going to be the #3 pick in the draft. REALLY? Ha ha ha ha ha. Oh, this is tooooo funny. I thought this was a $30 billion a year business. And this is the level of intellect required to be paid millions of dollars a year to talk about it? What a joke. This is why ESPN went from 110 million subscribers to 68 million in 5 years. And instead of correcting their mistakes, they are just accelerating the cable cutting phenomenon. If this is the best you can do, then see ya. We out. Enjoy your race to bankruptcy. The NFL media seems like a bunch of 13 year old girls who just say "well she said it, therefore it's true". Just look back at what they said LAST year and the year before that. I guess what they thought last year or the year before when they were totally punked doesn't matter. Because this year they are all 100% correct. But hey, if your a sucker who pays $80-$120/month for cable bill, I guess you aren't a logical person anyway.

  • 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 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.

    • 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.
