That Rouse kid is other worldly quick too.
I wouldn't be shocked to see Andy Reid use the top pick of the draft on Manuel.
Manuel has a lot of the same characteristics as Newton, Griffin, Kaepernick, Wilson. More so than any other QB prospect in this class. That model will be the fashion until those guys slow down. If they do.
We'll see. I see him as a 40s-60s type prospect at this point. He's had his chances to move his draft stock up high on the field and was unable to. I have my concerns.
I think he finished with better overall passing numbers than Ponder at FSU. That has to count for something.
This is from packers.com on today's Senior Bowl workouts -
"Manuel, a multi-talented quarterback from Florida State who offers the kind of running ability that’s become trendy in the NFL, played the best of a trio of passers that includes Oklahoma’s Landry Jones and Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson. All three quarterbacks, however, were inconsistent.
It was a deep out pass that was Manuel’s best throw of the day. The ball was thrown on time, on target and on a line. Manuel is an impressive athlete with a classic throwing motion. He throws a tight spiral and sticks out in a crowd, begging the question: Why wasn’t he more productive in college? Accuracy would seem to be the issue.
Nonetheless, Manuel’s physical skills are begging for him to rise up draft boards, which he will begin doing, should he perform well this week. Colin Kaepernick followed that path two years ago.".
Basically saying what I was saying.
Here's Tony Pauline on Manuel today -
"E.J. Manuel QB Florida State
6043 237 10.1 35
Mon: Had the best arm of any quarterback in attendance. Shows great speed and power on his passes. Got the ball through the tight spots and made some brilliant NFL passes. On the other hand sprayed a lot of throws. Incredible upside but needs a lot of work. ".
I think Reid is looking at the K.C. situation as a longer term project. So he will draft the guy he thinks has the best long term potential. In my books that is Manual. . Plus he seems like a solid guy. All Academic selection, graduated last year, good media presence and seems to have the leadership skills.
Sounds like Eric Fisher has been dominate so far. Sounds like a top 15 lock now.
Cameron Jordan is awesome
12.5 sacks and this http://instagram.com/p/jfs5DemKo3/
Saw someone say scouts are talking top 5 for Fisher. Guy is killing it so far.
Mike Mayock said today that Eric Fisher might challenge Luke Joeckel to be the top tackle. So I can see top 5.
Oh also practice is live on NFLN right now. 1 on 1 WR/CB on right now.
Oh on to OL vs DL one on ones
