Default EJ Manuel

I would like to see Cincy grab him in the 4th or 5th rd if he is still available.
Like to see another young qb in camp ( besides Andy) just for competitions sake this year.
I'm not knocking Andy so the calvary doesn't need to come charging in.
Would just like another young qb on the roster this year.

I'm an FSU fan and Manuel is crap. He has the body for being a QB, he just doesn't have the mind.

Not a big fan of Manuel before the 6th - 7th rounds. He's big and athletic, but not a very accurate passer. His decision making would likely be better, had he had the opportunity to start another season at FSU. But, playing behind Ponder for 3 seasons only left him one year to show his stuff. This is one guy that could really benefit by being drafted to sit and learn behind an established starter for 3 or 4 seasons.

He was the starter for two years, although hurt a good chunk of last year. He had two years of holding the clipboard and two years of starting, yet still was a terrible decision maker.

My mistake about that. But, my opinion of him still stands. Not an accurate passer, needs much developmental time.

I also think Matt Scott could a real sleeper as well. Similar to Russell Wilson only a little bigger.

I was looking at guys like Tyler Bray,Mike Glennon, and Ryan Nassib but they are projected in earlier rds.
Was trying to find guys that may be gems in the mid to late rds.
Alex Carder may be a possibility also.

Fsu alum and not real big on EJ. He vapor locks sometimes and cost you games by turning into a turnover machine.

But I do want a QB to develop. Think Dalton needs to turn the page and become the teacher. He is a different personality than say carson who we all know benifited from having kitna around. I don't think gradkowski is adding much to Daltons game and Andy might be the type of guy who does better when is the teacher. Just a theory

6'2 198 runs a 4.68 40 and make all the throws. Seems like a guy who'd be nice to develop.

Sorta looks like the direction the league is going. If that's what's coming out of college, sooner or later, you have to adapt.

If we bring in any QB in the lower rounds I would love to see us bring in Zac Dysert.
