Lynch as 2nd round talent.

Hack as UDFA talent.

Seems outside the norm opinions.

I've read that this is a deep draft for developmental type QBs. When I think of that two come immediately to mind ... Romo and Brady. If a team has the coaches and the patience that may be the way to go rather than spending a high pick on a player that may not be ready to go.

I'll tell you one thing, in the few highlights I've seen, Hack's got a rifle of an arm.

Speaking of questionable QB evaluation, where's Nabby been??

An increasingly pregnant wife, closing on a house and lots of work travel...

Hey, you all can doubt me all you want (because I had the audacity to believe that with good coaching, Geno Smith could be a very good QB), but I've been wrong about the pro prospects of exactly one Penn Stater in recent memory: Navorro Bowman (because I wasn't sure if he could put on the weight to be an every down guy). It's the only team I get to regularly watch these days.

Hackenberg will be a very good pro. I expect his floor to be Flacco. And I maintain he won't be getting past Houston. Draft analysts are the biggest hacks in all the media. My ability to watch every PSU game, as opposed to trying to form an opinion on every guy based on a few games, makes me every bit as capable of evaluating those guys. I suspect I don't need to remind everyone of my Allen Robinson prediction.

Good luck with the baby, and the house.

Would have liked to have seen your Courtney Brown write up! devil03.gif

Thanks, man. It's a hectic time, to say the least.

Courtney was a stud, but his body couldn't hold up. Football is hard.

I wouldn't mind Lynch falling to the second round. Since we're almost certain to get either Jack Myles or a defensive lineman with our first pick, I think even Jerry would have a hard time passing on Lynch if he's there at the top of the second.

Congrats on kid, house and work. smile.gif

Not sure how Houston works personnel. I'm sure O'Brien has input but does the GM make the choice? If the team thinks they're built to win now and are determined to use a rookie QB, wouldn't they try to get a guy who is the most prepared to start? Is that Hack?

I have a hard time believing that if O'Brien goes to bat for a kid he has a personal relationship with, spent time coaching, and still regularly speaks with; that wouldn't serve to trump any inner office politics that may be involved between him and the GM. Offensive coaches usually have input on the QB situation, regardless of the GM dynamic.

And yes, I believe Hack is the most prepared guy to come in and play for O'Brien. He's already spent a year in the system and O'Brien has said that the only guy who picked up his scheme quicker was Brady.
