Actually I like the comparison - I was not comparing where they will be drafted but where their talent levels are - I am not convinced Glennon is any better than Foles and Nassib is not better than Stanzi. Glennon and Nassib would not fare any better in the draft if they had come out the same years that Foles and Stanzi came out. Glennon would be hard pressed to go in the third last year and Nassib would have been considered fifth round material two years ago. I am not going to adjust my grade on either of them just because this is a weak draft class. If we had 13 picks like SF I would be ok with wasting a pick on a reach but with 6 picks, we cannot afford to waste any of our first three picks on a QB that will not be a long-time starter in the NFL and I don't see either being a starter on Sundays. Smith or Barkley in the first. EJ Manuel in the third and Matt Scott in the fifth are the only QBs that I would take. With both Manuel and Scott we would need a vet to hold the fort while they develop.

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
