I see a lot of diferent opinions on prospects from everyone on Phinsiders. So I just thought I'd ask you guys where you go for looking up draft prospects? I usually use CBS Sports and Walter Football. They are free! I'm not going pay for Mel "Helmet Hair" Kiper or Todd "Just Come Out Of The Closet Already" McShay. These guys as far as I'm concerned are complete douch bags. I'd much rather listen to Mike Mayock over at the NFL Network.
Just thought I'd ask this question because of the debate over this years QBs. A lot of fans seem to want Landry Jones over Matt Barkley. Or even RG3.
I think that Jones or Griffin are more boom or bust prospects. Deep down inside, I wish we would take Jones and he turns into an elite gunslinger QB in the mold Ben Roethlisberger. But, from what I read so far, he could be Big Ben or Ryan Leaf.
RG3 has some amazing athletic abilities, but I just don't know. I admit I have not watched him play this year. Hopefully, I can catch a few games to see what he has.
The one guy that not many seem to want is Matt Barkley. But that's my pick if he and Jones were still one the board. He won the starting job as a true freshman and has improved every year. I think he's more NFL ready than the other two, but that's just my humble opinion. And 6'-2" isn't that short! Check out the guy who plays down in New Orleans, he's only 6'-0".
No doubt that we are going to have a new head coach (and a new GM, I hope!) and that means a new QB.
ACTUALLY....Matt Flynn is a free agent after this year.....no need to trade for him.
