I don't think any team is drafting him as a project. Whoever picks him, I imagine, will be looking to have him as a starter very soon.

Exactly what I think and if the browns can get him at 22 then they ca nget him in the second round. Im just afraid of him slipping past the browns for some reason into a free fall.

Im assuming most teams are looking at him as a finished product so in my opinion if you don't think he is better than your present QB from day one then there really isn't a need to draft him.

Weeden would be absolutely killed behind that OL. Please don't let him be drafted there, it will mean a very short career for him I'm afraid.

Im also worried about that he si a pocket passer and most of the teams that need a QB have abismal O lines. I think Miami would be a good fit but they seem to be locked in on Tanehill. I don't see another good situation but hopefully im wrong. Colt took a massive beating last season.

Trannyhill makes horrible decisions. You cant teach that. It will simply show more in the NFL how bad he is.

Weeden won't drop lower than 22 in the draft. Bank on it. No way he drops to the 2nd rd. not from what I'm reading in the press about him.

Who do you think picks him before 22 or after 22 before the browns draft again at 37?

Should I go buy a shirt yet :)

“If you counted the top 20 throws that Andrew Luck made, the top 20 throws that Robert Griffin made, the top 20 throws that Tannehill made, Weeden, [Boise State’s] Kellen Moore, you walk away and you say, ‘Brandon Weeden makes the most difficult throws in college football,’” Gruden said. “He’s got a tremendous arm, great anticipation.

Being a life long Steelers fan it will be tough rooting for the Browns but they continue W2B then I may adopt a second favorite team. I think the Cards and Dolphins are other possibilities for Weeden but do agree that it's looking more like it's gonna be the Browns at either picks 22 or 37.

Did you read in this article that they think Richardson over Blackmon. I was kind of thinking blackmon was a shoe in for the browns. Guess not?

Yeah a lot of people are saying they will probably take Richardson but who really knows. They need play makers everywhere (QB, RB, WR) so it's just a matter of who they think fits better with their offensive philosophy.

It is very interesting to say the least. I sit here and watch these "analyst debate".

Yesterday I heard this on ESPN:

" Tannehill isnt overreated..he will just need some training and "time" to become the player the NFL needs him to be."

oh ok so while you are wasting your money and time on him...Weeden meanwhile is ready to go but you hold him back because of what? A number? Its the one and only knock I can find on him. So I just laugh when I hear people praise Tannehill over Weeden.

I hear ya and get so PO'ed at guys like McShay for having this man crush on Tannehill. The way I look at it is this ...it will take Tannehill 3-4 years to maybe develop into good NFL QB (primarily due to his limited time playing QB as evidenced by his main criticism of making poor decisions). So when he is ready he will be 27 or 28 years old. Why not go with the guy that's NFL ready who happens to be 28 right now? Something else that these "gurus" don't talk about is Weeden's shelf life. By that I mean that, despite being 28 years old, his body is equivalent to a 22-23 year old QB because he's taken the same amount of snaps if not less than those younger guys.

Exactly. Why not get 8 good years immediately and get your money worth? I dont think its brain science yet they act like it is. I understand that a guy like Weeden is rare..and typically does not happen in the draft but regardless you cant deny the truth.

The only thing I see good about tannehill right now is that he is big...other than that he only played one great half of football in my opinion and by saying "great" I really mean good.
