Some people may not have agreed with RGIII at the #2 pick before, but after his impressive combine it seems as if every analyst and avid fan is touting the latest Heisman winner as the best prospect in the draft at the most important position in football not named Andrew Luck. (On a side note, is Andrew Luck Irish per chance)? The fact that the current draft class is very top heavy at quarterback and extremely thin after the top few players makes the second pick an extremely enticing commodity. There are a few teams that are obvious contenders to try to move up to take the Baylor product, including the Browns, Redskins, Seahawks, Dolphins and Cardinals. But what are the teams that might make a surprise move and bring in a fresh face with a lot of upside to scare their current starter into playing well or possibly have Griffin take over midway into the season?
Tony Romo is the man in Dallas, just ask Jerry Jones. The question I want answered is does everyone else believe he can take the Cowboys to a Superbowl?
What about the Jets? Sanchez has been the latest of a recent string of USC quarterback disappointments (John David Booty, Matt Leinart) in the NFL.
Not many people think, and I’m one of them, that Tebow can have any real sustained success at quarterback in the NFL. But after all of the recent quarterback controversy and success that Tim has had Elway would never go for Griffin.
Will the Titans try to jump up and make a splash in the AFC South this year? Houston has come alive and is the only contender in that dead division and Hasselbeck may be serviceable, but he is not the answer. Some real long shots would be Kansas City, Pittsburgh, or even the Baltimore Ravens.
Let’s jump back to the most likely and make a real prediction. I really want to say Miami, mainly because their owner claimed they were going to get a franchise name coach and quarterback for this next season midway through last season, basically telling the world it was the end of Sparano and Henne in South Beach. The team that makes the most sense to me however is the Cleveland Browns, they have two first round picks to give and some young talent to throw in. Something that throws a wrench in there is the fact that the Vikings pick 3rd, and since there is no way they pick a quarterback in the first round two years in a row the Browns could hold out hoping that the Rams hold onto their pick and Griffin slides to #4 at them, but that is a big risk to take. What do you think will happen?
