2014 NFL Draft

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I dont think you can take a rookie and sit him 3-4 years these days.With the new rookie pay scale it would be a massive mistake imo. You need to make the most of having a QB on a rookie ...

You need to make the most of having a QB on a rookie deal to bring in the vets to help him. The Colts got really lucky that Luck(no pun intended) fell to them as Manning was nearing the end. If you want Bridgewater i think you can tell him he will sit for a year,max 2 years and still have 3 years on the rookie deal

Teams still sit quality talent, Green Bay sat Rodgers while Favre played it out - and that's not ancient history...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Under the old pay system though. I just dont think the benefit is there in sitting a young QB these days

Pass in 1st. Murray in the 3rd. Maybe Garoppolo in the 2nd (but he'll be gone).

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Teddy Bridgewater is the only QB IMO that is a first round talent. even then i have ranked at the end of the first top of the second

so thats my BPA question .

if we did take a QB i hope it is a ransom situation

If i were to pick one to sit and develop It would pick between Carr or Zach

Sleeper UDFA?

Brett Smith QB Wyoming 6'2" 205 4.51

completed 62.6 percent of his passes for 3,375 yards. He threw 29 TDs and and 11 interceptions. In three seasons, Smith threw 76 TDs and only 28 picks. He's accurate, consistent, durable and a pretty good arm.

I still believe SP has his goal set already with the kid from Tulane

The average yearly salary for a player selected in the first round of the 2013 draft was $2,776,787.70. In 2010, the last year of the old collective bargaining agreement, the average yearly salary for a player selected in the first round was $4,848,126.25.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois in the second round or David Fales, San Jose St in the fifth round...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I've never seen this ESPN show Draft Academy before... Where the hell have I been?! Pierre Desir is looking pretty damn good to me now. He'd fit in considering we already have a Haitian from a small school by the name of Junior Goddamn Galette.

I really like Desir as well. Small school prospect that is getting overlooked. He'd be a first rounder IMO if he went to a division 1 school.
