    The thing that bothers me about Stafford is that he's been the beneficiary of having three NFL quality RBs on his team, and yet his play has still been mediocre at best. I could deal with it if he wasn't surrounded by the talent he has, or if he was doing decently with that talent (Bradford to a lesser degree) but he really isn't

    But yea, as for physical ability...it's all there. He still has a ways to go when it comes to the rest of the game. Unless he takes a huge step forward, I really think he's screwed in the NFL if he doesn't stay for his senior year

      And no NFL caliber receivers. RBs are nice but they're not the one's he needs to really succeed.

      That is correct comahan

        Chad Henne plus two inches. And that is not a knock on him because I think Chad was a great prospect, but it seems these days that unless you are coming from a stupid spread offense your value is lower. I think everyone will talk about what a great prospect he is up until about two months before the draft when these spread qb's start getting all the love for the numbers they put up and then he will fall on draft day.

        Example of spread guys who were rose:
        Alex Smith, Jamarcus Russell, Matt Ryan, Vince Young, Kevin Kolb

        Pro Style QBs who fell:
        Aaron Rogers, Brady Quinn, Chad Henne, Matt Leinart, JD Booty, Trent Edwards (i liste him because he got picked after Kolb and Beck).

          Mediocre play? 55.7% average per attempt, 13 yds per comp.,19 tds and 10 ints(that number needs to come down) with average receivers and going against some of the better secondaries in the country. Add to that the fact that they should have played USC in the Rose Bowl for a chance at a top 2 ranking in the country. I'd say way above average all things considered.

            It's funny you said that, because I was thinking the exact same thing. I don't know if many people remember, but a lot of people were even down on Palmer because he had only put together one good season as QB for USC.

            Oldie but a goodie.

              Definitely one of my favorite prospects this year. He has some great physical ability and has the chance to put it all together this year with UGA. I see him breaking out this year with his WR corps getting better and moreno doing well as usual.

              Even if he doesnt put up some great stats this year, I can see him rising before draft time because of his physical ability and great arm. He is going to be good, trust me on that.

                      Is he a better prospect than Chad Henne was heading into his junior season?

                        When I watch him, i see a brett favre type gun-slinger. I don't ever see him being mechanically sound as Manning, but I see him being about to make plays like Favre. With that obviously being a best case senario for him.

                        He is probably one of my favorite prospects in a while, because given the right system and people around him, I think the sky is the limit for how good he can be.

                          yes, Henne was never a #1 overall type prospect.

                            Same thing with Matt Ryan, IMO.
                            And downthefield, are you talking bout henne or stafford?

                              If Stafford comes out, he has a chance at being at the top of the QB board. Certainly, as of now, this is based partially on the combination of potential, position, and a weak class, because despite all the accolades, the kid is still raw. That said, if he takes big leaps forward this year in terms of consistency, then we might be talking a year later about a very deserving top of the draft QB talent.

                              I will say this - at this point in time, I think Stafford is a better QB talent than Tim Tebow. To what degree, well, that's hard for me to say, but I think it's by a recognizable amount in my head right now (put it this way, on a random scale of 100(this is just to demonstrate the difference in my mind), I would put Stafford at, say, an 80, and Tebow at say, a 70 in terms of Qb'ing ability). Now, Tebow is an awesome physical talent, something that will definitely intrigue, and if he takes strides forward, as past QB's in Urban's system have with additional time, then he could very well end up ahead.
                              You stole my post.

                                He's a very good prospect, and he has the tools. I have two problems with him from what I've seen of him; both have to do with his footwork. Firstly, he sets up too slow at times. He needs to get quicker dropping back. The second is that his footwork often breaks down under pressure. He tends to throw off his back foot a lot. There are other issues that you'd expect from a Sophomore QB: decision making, etc. That will settle itself in time, I believe. He'll be a fantastic prospect.
