    As of today the consensus top 3 QBs in this years draft are:

    1.Kizer-Notre Dame
    2.Kaaya-Miami
    3.Watson-Clemson

    Kizer seems to be leading the pack right now with Watson and Kaaya fighting for the #2 spot.

    All three players are consensus first rounders.

    Chad Kelly is also pretty well regarded amongst draftniks

    Chad Kelly is a straight f***. Watson is a bust. Kaaya is nothing special by any means. This class looks pretty weak imo. Kizer is head and shoulders above everyone else.

    I wish we would have traded the farm for Wentz. I would have gone crazy but as it stands it would have been a good move. I would have freaked out in a negative fashion at the time though.

    Mitch Trubisky is worth keeping an eye on. He may not declare this year and instead opt for a second year with UNC, but thus far he's been impressive. His next game against a tough Hokies passing defense will tell us a lot. If he continues to play like he has against them, then expect him to be one of if not the top QB in this/next draft.

    Good call. He's done well this year & had a really good game last Saturday on the road vs FSU.

    He's been very impressive. So far, I like him and Wilton Speight from Michigan.

    Not a fan of Watson, he misses a lot of easy throws also.

    As hard as it is to say this, with the qb situation we have, im not sure I'd take another shot at a qb with all the other needs we have

    Depending on where we are picking, trading up for Kizer like Rams/Eagles did last draft has to be a consideration. The team needs to make a serious commitment to the future of the QB position, no more NFL projects like Petty or reclamation projects like Hackenberg. We need a blue chip prospect.

    It will never happen with this GM, he thinks he has his QBs of the future now.

    We'll see. If he does think that way, he may be right. Petty was looking pretty good in preseason, and if Hack can get his fundamentals straightened out, he could be awesome, as his ability to read Ds, arm strength, and leadership are topflight.

    Petty would be playing now if he was any good. Hackenberg is a total bust not because of "fundamentals" but because he can't handle the pass rush. If you can't handle pressure in college you're not all of a sudden going to be handle pressure in the NFL.

    You do realize he had 1-2 seconds from the snap to throw the ball most of the time, right?

    Dude, you should give up football, because you know absolutely nothing about it. There are a number of reasons why Petty hasn't seen the field yet. One, Bowles still believes in Fitz. The Jets are paying Fitz $12 million to play this year. Woody may be ordering the team to stick with Fitz, or perhaps Mac is hoping Fitz can get his act together and help Mac save face for caving and signing Fitz. Petty was hurt. He's now throwing at practice, but not in any team drills/plays. It has been speculated that Mac is trying to help accelerate Hack's development since he used the Jets' 2nd round pick on him in the draft, and other rookie QBs are already playing and playing well. That could be accurate, or it could be a matter of Petty's having been injured worse than what the team claimed, and he's still not fully healthy. Then there's Geno. He's on the roster for a reason. This early in the season, if a QB was going to enter the game or start instead of Fitz, it would more than likely be Geno, not Petty.

    Saying he couldn't handle the pressure in college is not only wrong, but just flat out stupid. You've obviously never seen him play. After his freshman season, his OL was horrible and he had little offensive talent around him. On most plays he was running for his life. He carried that team on his shoulders. No QB can handle taking the beating and being under constant pressure that Hack was his last 2 seasons at PSU. Brady gets rattled when he's hit and pressured heavily.

    You really need to quit posting. You're just making yourself look absolutely stupid and clueless.

    Show me what Petty and Hack have if we keep losing but at 12 mil we might be stuck with Fitztragic

    Well RF didn't have a terrible game last outing but his passes are off

    Wisdom says we need Offense players going forward; Draft a QB every year till one is your Franchise QB; Go for defense in the later rounds

    Pick up some FA Corners, after we save $ on cutting Mevi$ and other dead weight, and keep your fingers crossed they work out

    This is absurd! I've played the QB position in college and know more about the game than 99 percent of casual fans.

    Hackenberg absolutely could not handle the pass rush in college, and anyone who has played the position could tell you that after watching his game film.

    Watson is going to be a star...I went to SC but i watch a lot of Clemson and he's the real deal

    He's a little inconsistent but clutch as hell in big spots and can drop dimes on the deep ball.

    Kizer I like too....but Watson is number 1 for now

    How does everyone feel about Pat Mahomes? Big guy with a HUGE arm. He makes some really "wow" throws. I know he has the whole Texas Tech offense thing but so did Petty and he's transitioned to the pro style pretty well.

    How has Petty transitioned well? He hasn't taken a single meaningful snap.

    The kid from UNC is pretty dirty. Cannon of an arm. Watched him against Pitt. He didn't seem to step into his throws. Kind of concerning but his arm strength is great. He'll need to step into it at the next level though.
