  • QB Prospects NFL Comparison

    Hey Everybody,

    I've been a long time lurker on this board, but just finally decided to set up an account. My question is among the top QB's in this draft, who would their closest NFL comparison be. By this I mean Gabbert, Locker, Newton, Mallet. If you have a strong comparison about any of the other QBs, feel free to include those as well.

    Thanks in advance

    Blaine Gabbert - Tim Couch

    Ryan Mallett - Jim Druckenmiller

    Jake Locker - Heath Shuler

    Cam Newton - Daunte Culpepper

    Colin Kaepernick - Alex Smith

      I see a lot of Cutler in Gabbert. Poor mechanics, relies on arm strength, can move and make any throw in the books. At best, Newton reminds me a bit of a faster / less accurate Ben Roethlisberger, but there's not really a player like Newton in the league right now. As far as Locker goes, I'll say Vince Young; much more natural of a runner than a passer, but Locker has more physical tools than Young did. Mallett is very much like Derek Anderson.

        I gotta say you are so far off on all of these except Newton. That is an interesting one and I like it.

        You realize that Druckenmiller was more of an athlete playing QB. Tough, a runner, not a great thrower. And Heath Shuler wasn't a great runner. And Tim Couch had a lollipop arm.

        Mallett-Drew Bledsoe

        Jake Locker-Akili Smith

        Cam Newton-Daunte Culpepper (like it so much I'm stealing it)

        Blaine Gabbert-Josh Freeman (only a tad smaller and not quite as athletic)

        Colin Kaepernick-Randall Cunningham

        Ricky Stanzi-Brady Quinn

        Andy Dalton-Brian Griese

        Christian Ponder-Brian Brohm

            Seems like everyone is just throwing out random names just cause one aspect of their game stands out more to the poster.

                Stanzi is not Brady Quinn...His accuracy and release blow Quinn's out of the water.

                I'd go with this:

                Cam Newton-Vince Young
                Ryan Mallett-Jay Cutler
                Blaine Gabbert-Alex Smith
                Ricky Stanzi-Tom Brady
                Pat Devlin-Joe Flacco

                  besides that they went to Delaware, I dont see the comparison.

                    Same lightning quick release, played in same offense, same uncanny accuracy....Take a look at some video on Flacco in Delaware and you'd see the similarities.

                      I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this was meant as a joke. I will then surmise that a whole lot of people didn't get it.

                      Off-topic, does anyone remember how the 1999 draft was supposed to be the "Year of the Quarterback"? (I mean, I don't, because I was a kid and I wasn't into the draft, but it's fun to look back on that year anyway.) Five quarterbacks in the first round alone.

                      Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb, Akili Smith, Daunte Culpepper, Cade McNown - these were the names and faces that revolutionized the NFL of the new millennium, with an astounding zero Super Bowl wins among them.

                      2002 was a great draft for QBs as well - 15 total, 3 in the first: David Carr, Joey Harrington, Patrick Ramsey. The only relevant QB to come out of this draft was David Garrard.

                      (edit)
                      Also, Jake Locker is clearly Ryan Leaf. That way, the Wazzu fans will be able to mock U-Dub with equal ferocity.

                        Right on the mark with Kaepernick/Cunningham.

                          Agreed, they are nowhere near the same. Devlin has nowhere near the arm, or the size of Flacco.

                          Devlin is not even close to Flacco's level.

                            I think Mallett is somewhere between Flacco and Bledsoe , as a giant sized QB with a rocket arm.

                            There isn't really a comparison for Newton. He's a better passer than Vince Young, but a much better runner than Culpepper, McNabb... etc.

                            it's late... i'm tired.. that's all for now.

                              He has less of an arm but the release is spot on with Flacco's. I think it has something to do with their QB coach. The deadly accuracy is there as well. Flacco was probably a better athlete though.
