    Only if Jameis Winston is in jail on those rape charges. Otherwise Winston goes 1st and Mariota 2nd most likely.

    Agree. I forgot about Winston.

  • Mariota did the right thing. He wasn't going early first round despite what Duck fans believe.

    Every single mock draft I've looked at the last month had him in the top 5, usually top 2. So don't act like its just duck fans that think this.

    I am a husky fan and think he would have gone in the first round for sure.

    The same mocks that had Barkley as tbe first pick? Or all the ones that nailed EJ Manuel being the only QB taken in the first last year?

    I am a husky fan and think he would have gone in the first five for sure after watchimg them beat us down. Then i saw him against Stanford and Arizona the Dawgz against Arizona State and UCLA and realized we suck.

    You missed the point that it's not just Ducks fans. (I think he would've gone in the first because teams are so QB hungry, but I didn't like his chances in the NFL.) I left your first comment alone.

    I said early first. I can't see any team wanting the first pick that needs a qb.

  • I had Barkley slated for late rd 2. He can thank all former Trojan QBs for that. Not being sarcastic, in fact complimentary (to SC). They clearly max the potential of their QBs, hitting their ceiling by draft day, IMO.

    My opinion differs from people in here on this year's QB crop. They know what they are talking about, I just disagree. My QBs in this draft, in order, would be

    Bridgewater
    (Mariota)
    Carr
    Mettenberger, I would have above Carr, but don't know enough about the knee (atm).
    Winston, Whether found guilty or not, I would still be concerned about his character.
    Boyd
    Manziel

    I would not want my team to pick Manziel to be my starting QB. Nothing personal or off-field related. I just doubt he will last. He thinks he's Favre with the tough QB attitude, he's not and will get pummeled at the next level early and often. But I wish him well and will enjoy watching his magic while it lasts.

  • Ifo Ekpre Olomu also announcing tomorrow that he's coming back to Oregon for another season. He was also expected to be a 1st round pick.

    Now we just need DAT to decide to stay.

  • Yeah they need to put a year in to study for the Wonderlic test anyway. :)



    Sounds like a great Christmas Gift for you J.

    Will be good at least to see what Peterson can put together against a good Oregon team, at least we will know how far up the hill we need to climb at UW.

  • Mariota is not a starting QB in the NFL, even if he stayed in for another 4 years.
