Brody Croyle???

Sean Salisbury and Merril Hoge a few minutes ago on ESPN's Draft Update both emphatically picked Brody Croyle as the best passer and leader in the 2006 draft. His only knock is two surgically repaired knees. Anybody??? Is this just total BS or are we just way too VY v. Lie focused?

You think he'd fall into the second round?

They both said that he's a solid 2nd rounder, but he won't make it to the 3rd.

Hmmm...I'm just not sure. I'd like to see us pick up another pick. I'm not happy about not having one in the third round.

I don't know. He does get injured A LOT! He is also short, and doesn't have the best physical tools. He reminds me of Jake Delhomme.

Then pick him at 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol j/k

If we get an extra third, maybe. Definitely if he is there in the 4th. He may have been injured, but he is a tough kid. And definitely a leader.

Not that either of those two analysts really know anything, but they said that his arm was better than Cutlers' at the Senior Bowl, and better than Lienart's or Young's watching film.

There are worse things to be said of someone than they remind one of Jake Delhomme.

Delhomme is the a fine examples of intangibles risings over physical gifts.

Ha! Yeah, let's pick up a guy with two surgically repaired knees to back-up a guy with a surgically repaired shoulder. Hell, let's give Jason White a call and see what he's doing these days. He at least won more games in college - and missed less.

Why even talk about a QB in the early rounds? Its not like he can come in and help us now and we have way too many holes that need to be addressed.
