    I cant speak as to whom I do not want. Mainly because I have not seen enough of a lot of the guys outside of youTube. I fore one refuse to call youTube as "film." I would however be able to say in order I would like

    Other than Bray I'm open to any of the QB's because you never know. Bray melted down in the games I watched. He did look bad in the Georgia game. That being said he could develop maturity and with proper coaching he seems to have the right skills to be able to succeed. Every QB has a bad day and Tennessee was not a powerhouse this year so I didn't catch but two of their games. I can't even remember who the other game was with, possibly Vandy. I would not want him before 4th preferably the 5th rd.

    OK, he's immobile, awful under pressure, has never been a winner, too little starting time, overall unimpressive ball placement .. nothing here to like now spelled out for you.

    Barkley. Don't get me wrong, he could some day become a good NFL player, but I think he's a lot less NFL ready than people seem to believe. He's always been on a high powered offense with great receivers, especially this year with Lee, and he rarely has to make the throws that will be required of him in the NFL. He's got good physical tools but not exemplary ones, and just doesn't do enough stuff great for me to believe that he can join the Bills and not need a lot of coaching.

    It's about time people started to realize there's a ton of risk involved when picking players at that position.

    50% of 1st rounders work out. 15% of second rounders work out. Everyone else is a total crap shoot.

    If you want to roll the dice, fine. I'd prefer to wait for an elite prospect to come around who is a much better bet than 50-50 to work out.
    Less risk than in the past with the rookie salary cap being what it is. If a 1st round QB doesn't work out nowadays, you can just reload a few years down the road if he doesn't work out and it won't set you back a whole lot.

    Are you saying Fitz is our best option to get into the playoffs this year? Interesting...

    Excellent post in response to someone who apparently wants to remain in mediocrity. Fear of pulling the trigger will never get this team over the hump.

    EJ Manuel, the guys screams bust to me. I hope we dont fall victim to any "workout warriors" this draft.

    Fitzpatrick sucks.

    And there's less financial risk, but there's still tons of risk.

    If you take a 2nd round QB talent in round 1 and they don't work out, you give up the opportunity to draft an impact player at another position.

    This team still has a ton of holes which is why we need to go BPA in round 1. We need play makers if we ever want to get to the playoffs.

    Matt Barkley

    small hands, fishy storylines surround USC all season, and despite my best efforts not to lump him in with the crowd it is still hard to get past the whole USC QB's end up being busts in the NFL.

    Anyone else I'm open to.

    Well its hard to be a bust if he ends up being taken in the 3rd-4th rounds like hes graded out to..

    mike glennon, the most over-hyped and over-rated qb in this draft. i watch alot of college ball and this kid has not impressed me even a little so the manlove for this kid on this board just baffles me because under pressure and in big game situations, he is pickspatrick 2.0 !

    So answer the question and stop being so cryptic. What do you want to happen at the QB position for the team this year?

    He did not say that - he said he did not like anything about Glennon. I took that to mean he did not like his arm, his mobility, his decision making - update - just saw his response

    The guys that are off my board are:

    Glennon and Dysert as their good traits cannot compensate for their lack of mobility - their ceiling is Nick Foles, who cannot dodge a pass rush to save his life, or a drive. When it comes to mobility, Fitz is the floor, Luck is the standard and Kaepernick/RGIII the ceiling. If you are not mobile, you must have a Marino release, Brady accuracy and/or Big Ben stature and strength. Don't see it in these guys.

    I am on the fence with Nassib - I had him off my board but I am waiting to see more of him at the Senior bowl and combine - if he reinforces my vision of him as a immobile, nonathletic guy, than he is back off the board. Maybe they are homers but enough folks are saying he is ok in that department, I am going to give him a shot, as to be honest with you I have not followed him much until Marrone was named HC. First impressions were not good.

    Every single QB in this draft is flawed but other than the two I mentioned above, you can make a case for them - not at 8, but somewhere in the draft.
    Coming soon - my wish list for 2014

    Gaffney is my sleeper pick

    I don't want any of the QBs in the draft. Look, we all know that Fitzpatrick doesn't like competition. There's no reason why we should make our star player feel uncomfortable.
