An AFC Scout told the Philadelphia Daily News that he believes Joe Flacco's stock has risen into the first round this offseason.

"He threw the ball great," said the scout of Flacco's Pro Day workout. "He's done everything right in the offseason. Everything. Right now, there's a lot of teams that have him rated ahead of (Boston College QB Matt) Ryan."

I know some of you have been predicting this, and it seems more and more likely by the day that it could be true. I like Flacco ALOT, but am still skeptical if he is really worth a 1st round pick. I have no qualms at all about taking him with our first pick in the 2nd, which is basically a 1st. But if the talk continues that he will go in the 1st, I'm not sure I would be willing to give up picks, especially high ones to move back into the first and nab him. Also, unless anyone else was to trade back up into the first as well for him, I see no direct threats to steal him from us between picks 22-31.

Let's discuss this 'Phinfans...

Looking at this draft I just dont know how he ends up in the 1st rd. No teams in the back end of the 1st rd really need a QB. Okay the only team is possibly the Packers with the loss of Favre but Aaron Rodgers is a young QB and I think a real good one. I think Flacco should be there when the Phins pick again.

Agreed. Maybe the Seahawks too I guess. I just don't see it either unless someone else like the Bears was to trade back up into the first ala the Browns from last year. Guess we'll have to wait and see...
