I'm pretty sure the entire dolphins fanbase wants us to draft a new qb, preferrably luck. I personally think we are not bad enough to get him, the colts are much worse. If we don't get Luck, we can still grab a good franchise qb. Here is a list of the top 10 qbs after andrew luck.
1. Landry Jones, Oklahoma (Height: 6-4. Weight: 216):Landry Jones has a big arm, goes through progressions well and has great footwork. He is not very mobile, but can be an elite pocket passer. NFL comparision: Joe Flacco. Even though Flacco is bigger than Jones, they both have similar playing styles and are great, strong-armed pocket passers. projected drafting: the Redskins trade up to the 3rd overall pick and pick up Jones as their franchise qb. stock: even
2. Robert Griffin III, Baylor (Height: 6-2. Weight: 220): Robert Griffin is extremely accurate on deep, intermediate and short passes. Up until the 4th game of the season, RG3 had more touchdowns than incompletions. Not only is RG3 a great passer, he also has great mobility and can scramble for the first if needed. NFL comparision: Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers and RG3 are both similar sizes, and are both very mobile and accurate. projected drafting. Dolphins trade down from the no. 2 pick to no. 7 to pick him up. stock: rising
3. Matt Barkley, USC (Height: 6-2. Weight: 230): Barkley, while slightly small for a pocket passer, can make all the throws and has a good feel for the pocket. Barkley has experiance with a pro-style offense in USC. NFL comparision: Matt Ryan. Ryan is a bit bigger than barkley, but they are both good pocket passers. They both have good pocket presence and can evade tacklers well. projected drafting: Seahawks trade down to pick number 11 to pick him up. stock: falling
4. Nick Foles, Arizona (Height: 6-5. Weight: 235): Foles is a big, strong armed pocket passer that needs work on going through his progressions and finding an open reciever. Foles has great pocket presence and is hard to tackle. He will need to be developed though, at least until he can make reads better and avoid interceptions. NFL comparision: Eli Manning. One of Manning's biggest knocks is that he throws INTs too much, this is also an issue with FOles. But Manning and Foles both have great pocket presence and accuracy. prjected drafting: 2nd rd by the Eagles to develop behind an aging Vick. stock: even
5. Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M (Height: 6-4. Weight: 219): Tannehill changed positions from wide reciever to qb in college, so he has little relative experiance at the qb position. Because of this, he will have to be developed for a while. Despite this, he has a first rd skill set. He is mobile, accurate and athletic. He will take time to learn the mental aspects of the position and will spend time on the bench before starting. NFL comparision: Cam Newton. Both Newton and Tannehill are mobile, run-first qbs who need work on accuracy. Even though Newton is bigger than Tannehill, they are both similar qbs. projected drafting: The cowboys pick him up in the 2nd rd after Tony Romo continues to lack the ability to perform in clutch situations. stock: rising
6. Kirk Cousins, Michigan St. (Height: 6-3. Weight: 202): Cousins is a typical dink and dunk game manager. He will not lift the team to the next level, but will not make mental mistakes, and will make nice thorows when given time in the pocket. If he gets a good running game, he would be able to lead a team far. NFL comparision: Chad Pennington. yes, yes, Pennington is retired, but he is still young enough to count. Bot Cousins and Pennington were elite game managers and good leaders. Cousins also doesn't have Pennington's injury concerns. projected drafting: Bears in the 3rd to develop behind Cutler. stock: even
7. Kellen Moore, Boise St. (Height: 6-0. Weight: 187): Moore is very undersized and that could be his biggest obstacle. He is a good passer, but his small size will definately hurt him. NFL comparision: Drew Brees. They are both small, intelligent and accurate, and Brees was able to overcome his size issues and become successful. Projected drafting: 4th rd by the Saints, Brees is not getting any younger, and he is most likely to help Moore with his issues.
8. Ryan Lindley, San Diego St. (Height: 6-4. Weight: 210): Lindley was supposed to use his senior year to boost his stock to the first round, instead, his stock has taken a nosedive. He is having a bad senior season and may continue to fall. Lindley needs work on his mechanics and accuracy, but has a strong arm and could be developed. NFL comparision: Jay Cutler. Both Lindley and Cutler have the same issue, they are strong armed, but are relatively inaccurate. projected drafting: Cardinals may take a chance on him in the 4th because Kolb is underachieving. stock: falling
9. Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma St. (Height: 6-4. Weight: 220): Weeden is a good qb, but his age is the main limiting factor for him. At 29, he will be one of the oldest rookies to enter the NFL draft. He will have to show he is a quick learner and can pick up quickly. NFl comparision: Chris Weinke. They both entered the draft at a late age due to switching from baseball to football. They both will have short NFL careers, mostly as backups due to their age. projected drafting: 5th rd by any team in severe need of an immediate backup qb.
10. Chandler Harnish, NIU (Height: 6-2. Weight: 220): Harnish is a young qb prospect with a lot of upside. Harnbish displays good overall accuracy and is also very mobile. Harnish will have to be developed by any team that looks to draft him. With the rigth type of coaching, Harnish could turn into a late rd steal. He is consistant, rarely having a horrible game. NFL comparision: Josh Freeman, both Freeman and Harnish are good mobile passers, even though Harnish is much smaller than Freeman. Projected drafting: 5th rd by Bills
