Normally I mock julio jones to the skins so I do like the pick....but in your mock you have Quinn falling to the skins....and in that instance I would snag Quinn for the skins over Jones. Quinn and Orakpo would make a fierce duo of OLBs for the skins
Horrible Cardinals pick, hell we might even pass on him in the 2nd
Miller, Amukamara, Quinn please
Eh... He's got franchise QB qualities. He has a big arm that's accurate and has shown great leadership on the field. He's shown poise and has played pretty well in big games. He also played in a similar passing system at Arkansas to what Whis runs for the Cardinals. Unless the Cardinals make a trade, that'd be their best move. The knocks on Mallett are that he has an Arkansas accent and rumored rumors that no one knows anything about...supposedly. Really? That's why you pass on him? I think he's Joe Flacco - at worst.
If you're saying you want to pass on Mallett in a mock where no trades have been made, you're saying that you want to go into 2011 with Anderson, Skelton, and Hall.
I think anyone that doesn't like Mallett, Locker, or Newton that has a team that needs a QB has just completely over-analyzed the situation. 3 QBs with definitive franchise QB qualities. That's a ton better than most draft classes can say. And Gabbert might turn out well, too.
Locker is not accurate enough to play in a West Coast Offense plus his footwork is godawful. Green, Bowers, Dareus, and Gabbert all better picks
His accuracy seems to be directly related to his footwork, which is the thing he always says he's working on when asked where he needs to improve. I feel like that's the only thing holding him back at this point and that's one of the easiest things to correct with young QBs (also - every QB coming in to the NFL needs a lot of help with their footwork).
Stick him in Cincy with Shipleyzzz, Simpson, Caldwell, and Gresham and I think you've got a really nice young group that will grow well together.
