    I've actually asked a couple of people to clarify their posts and they fully say 'ANY' of the big 3. I agree Bridgewater and Bortles have a chance to be successful with the Vikings - but they both...

    You MUST be joking! There is a reason that scouts and media differentiate between the 2 differing draft strategies of drafting 'Best Player Available' and drafting by 'Position of Need'! Best...

    Now you've contradicted yourself - an 'overranked' player is NOT the 'Best Player Available'! My faith in Vikings management is that they correctly 'rank' players. Having said that I accept, as an...

    I'm definitely in agreeance on this - I just have a hard time believing that BPA is going to be a QB at #8. Having said that I believe in Spielman and Zimmer and if they do happen to take a QB at #8...

    It's the scouts first opportunity to see how well players follow instructions. It also gives them the sense that a player isn't afraid to do whatever is asked whenever. They also get the sense that...

    Actually this year it is that important. You have 3 QB's jockeying to not only be the top QB taken but to be the top player taken. If Bridgewater and Manziel had fully participated they had a...

    You think Bridgewater is a prototypical Norv Turner QB?



    Then why ask them to throw at all? You can't seriously expect people to believe that scouts get nothing from watching QB's at the...

    You can see throwing mechanics better when there isn't equipment on and an opposing defences chasing you around the field.

    Why would anyone offer a private workout if they think the QB is too afraid or too arrogant to throw at the combine?

    I guess what it boils down to is what hurts them more - making a couple of off-the-mark throws at the combine, or, showing they can only work in a scripted environment? Personally, I think those...

    I definitely liked Bortles' attitude towards the combine better than Manziel or Bridgewater. They all have something to prove and at least Bortles made the effort to try to prove himself.

    Yeah but there sure as poop could be an RG3 type trade for the #2 pick if Clowney is there.

    In the face of falling to the 2nd or 3rd round, or at least giving Bortles an opportunity to move ahead of you, I'm still shocked that Manziel and Bridgewater didn't throw at the combine. It left...

    That's ironic - I can't shake the feeling that if Bridgewater falls to #8 the Vikings are just gonna wave to him as he keeps falling to #9 then #10 etc. Can you say 'Geno Smith'?

    I think the answer is a middle ground. You can't say 'we'll take whoever falls to us' and you can't summarily dismiss whoever falls to #8 either. If you consider the 1999 draft, 5 QB's were taken...

    I think more than accuracy when you watch QB's at the combine its about mechanics. Mike Mayock and Kurt Warner had a really interesting discussion about Logan Thomas' throwing mechanics. To...
