Got an old QB. I think we may want to start a thread on discussing QB prospects. If I missed any prospect. I'll add them. I'm pretty high on this QB class in depth and top end talent. The current pandemic can cause a great QB to fall through the cracks. It's really never a better time to get invested in the QB scouting.


There are 12-13 noteworthy QBs that'll probably make this class and keep an eye for out throughout the season.


I got them broken off into tiers and they'll probably move up and down throughout the season.

Top 10 LOCKS
Trevor Lawrence
Justin Fields


1st-2nd Round Ceiling
Trey Lance
D'Eriq King

3rd-5th Round Ceiling
Brock Purdy, Iowa State
Jamie Newman, Georgia
Sam Ehlinger, Texas

5th- Unknown
Myles Brennen, LSU
Kyle Trask, Florida,
Shane Buechele, SMU.
Kellen Mond, TAMU,
K.J. Costello, Mississippi State
Tanner Morgan, QB, Minnesota.
Desmond Ridder, CINN

Let's try to not too much onfocus season total stats or any sort of season stat tracking as this doesn't take into account SOS. We can use season stats, but it will not be an end-all point of reference. Pertain mainly on game performances,displays of fluid mechanics, and etc.

Gonna put in some recent game highlights to get people up to speed. This are just highlights. I know they are against trash opponents, but they still have some value.

I hope the Saints are able to trade up for either Fields or Trey Lance, as I think both of those quarterbacks would fit very well into our system. I would say Trevor Lawrence too, but I believe he's going #1 and we'd have no chance to get him.

One quarterback to keep an eye on is Desmond Ridder from Cincy. He's 6'4, has a big arm, and is mobile. I really like the accuracy he displays, as well as the fact he's 20-3 I believe in the games he's started. I'm not sure what round he'll go in, but I expect for him to gain more buzz as we get closer to the draft. I think he would be a great fit under Sean Payton.

It's going to be a long year if Drew can't turn it around soon.
Well unfortunately every year around draft time the front office thinks we are more in need of online help then all-pro talent at wr.

The last two years my top guys went in rd two (Metcalf and Claypool) and we have no split end to speak of that can stretch the field.

I'm not sure that Mahomes could do much better without a field-stretcher at this point.

Either way, I think that Winston as a reclamation project + more ball control like when Bridgewater was on his hot streak is the answer to the qb quandary.

Wow ! Great arm talent. Looks to be very accurate. And he's mobile.
He is my pick for Round 1 or 2 at this point.

2017 Jameis Winston/end thread

92 QB rating


Never should have let Teddy Walk.
If we can afford Winston that maybe the big issue. If someone is willing to overpay. We don't have the capspace for a $20 million QB.


Also, Teddy isn't good. He is a run of the mill starter.

Interesting low usage QB. I'll add him to list.

Can't believe Brennan out of LSU is considered a draft prospect. He's been riding the Bench since the days of Danny Etling

That's valid but time has proven you can win with someone of his caliber. I think the big question is how long will it take to find another potential HOF QB, as there have only been two franchises to achieve that in the past 30-40 years: GB and the niners.
