Looking forward to 2013:
Manuel - most upside in the draft
Woods - most pro ready WR
Alonso - tall ILB with coverage skills
Goodwin - fastest WR in draft
Duke Williams - prince of a pick
Meeks - no he is not
Hopkins - best K prospect in the draft
Gragg - vertical threat TE
Go ahead and complain - I am happy with this draft
Adopt a Bill - first choice Alonso, second Goodwin
I seriously can't believe people on these boards have such ridiculously short memories. Last year, Tannehill was being talked about exactly the same way we're talking about Nassib in this thread and a few other threads. Yet, most people think the Dolphins made a good choice in Tannehill.
Guess what, I truly believe Nassib is going to be a better QB than Tannehill. Does that mean I believe he's the 8th best player in the draft? Absolutely not. But QBs rocket up and are overdrafted, and it's not always as much of a "reach" as scouts scream on draft day.
Most people aren't saying Tannehill was a reach. Ponder just "led" his team to the playoffs (I won't get into this argument about who really got the Vikings there, but apparently we just acknowledge that the QB gets credit since he is, afterall, the QB). Locker is probably the "reach," and he would have been the #1 draft pick likely if he came out the year before.
People on here are foolish. Nassib's weakness by the OP are true, but you can teach throwing the long ball with touch, you can't teach foot speed (though he actually scrambles well), and you can teach people not to force balls into tight coverage. What you can't teach are smarts and arm strength. He has those 2. I'd love it if we got him in the 2nd, but who knows what happens between now and the draft. I'd be fine drafting him in the first if it came down to it.
I've decided to read everyone's posts as if they were "down in the hood" type brothers. It's become pretty funny actually! Read them as if "Cris Rock" if that's more politically correct or whatever, but it definitely gives new flavor to the same old posts...
They're all special cases. And all those special cases fly up boards lately. Locker actually got a lot worse in his senior year. At first there were all these stories about the millions Locker had cost himself by going back for his final year. Then he went 8th.
Ponder was widely considered a 2nd round guy. Then he goes 12th.
People were laughing, cracking up, in January when people said Tebow might go in the 3rd. There's no way, they said. Then he goes 25th.
"Gabbert? Where did he even play?" you heard people saying if you were stupid enough to predict in January he might sneak into the last few picks of the first. Then he goes 10th.
"Kaepernick? The guy played in a kindergarten offense at a ... what conference is Nevada even in? He'll be lucky to go in the 5th," you heard in January. Then he goes 36th.
QBs are flying up the boards these days. That's the state of the current market.
To Nix's point, take whatever round a QB is projected and move him up a round. If the bills like him as a franchise guy you def pick him at 8. The good news when it comes to Nassib this staff knows everything about him and if they essentially put their regime's legacy on the line drafting him at 8 knowing all they know about him you have to trust their judgement.
What would you be doing if nothing were impossible...
I like him better than Glennon, If Glennon is a number 8 pick then Nassib is too.

2013 Buffalo Bills: These guys might not be so bad...
People said the same things you just said about Russell Wilson Kaepernick and Dalton with a 2nd round pick in the past. Now your saying it about Nassib.
Do u think the 49ers, Bengals and Seahawks knew what the were getting in those guys. No, its all a gamble. I would gamble on a guy if proven decent throughout the next couple months who knows our system with a late 1st rd grade.
U were the guy prolly saying No to Dalton, Kaepernick and Wilson with a 2nd. Now look. He could pay off is all I'm saying. This is more a pick of need than BPA, but we need a QB.
haha draft experts before the real scouts can even give real grades to these players, after the Senior Bowl, Combine and Pro Days, which generally count for a lot more than you guys and your Youtube scouting.

Trent's not quoted because the answer he gave to the question didn't answer the question. You're reading way too much into what isn't here than what is.
Im confident they will take Glennon before Nassib. I would be OK with Glennon in the first at this point.
