    Check out the whole article if your looking to read something interesting and get a good insight into a guy with a very good track record's opinion.

    Correctly called A. Smith as a Bust and several others.

    He discuss C. Newton, B. Gabbert, J Locker and Kapernick among other sleepers and such in the article.

    Im gonna admit he just made me want to go back and look at more Locker and Kapernick tape.

    What you guys think?

    You know what, I like Locker more than cam newton! i just decided that. roll eyes....

    He could be right on with the favre thing.

    Locker is tough. I would not be surprised if we ended up drafting him. just keeping my mind open here.

    Locker is respected by his peers, can take a hit and keep ticking, and is mobile. I am actually going to look a little deeper.

    I can say this. On Grudens QB show, he seemed more impressive to me than say..cam newton.

    He's absolutely right about Gabbert imo. I certainly don't see what makes him worthy of a top 10 pick. As for Locker, he blows. Waste of a draft pick to whoever drafts him.

    If Locker is anything like Favre, I want to stay far far away.

    Greg Cossel is the "rogue" scout you want to follow.

    He also doesn't like Gabbert, Newton, Locker for the record. He likes Mallett the best of any QB, and Dalton next. Has Ponder 3rd.

    Likes Dalton more than I do, but he indicates Dalton would always have to be shielded by scheme, and rely on running game. Thinks arm strength can be improved in NFL somewhat.

    Nothing has changed for me; give me Mallett at 15.

    I'm certainly not about to mock Gabbert to the 49ers. Not anymore.

    Yea, wouldnt want to draft a QB who will win a SB and multiple MVP awards :lol:

    Im guessing youre talking about Favre the person though.

    Why? The guy doesn't work for the 49ers anymore. He last worked for the Cardinals in 2009 before he was fired.

    Wow, this was a good article. I always love when NFL scouts speak out.

    Kaepernick and Locker, the two guys I have to say I like the least in this draft, this scout likes the most. I found that baffling, but perhaps he is watching tape closer than I am. I'm not cocky enough to open my mind to that possibility.

    The Gabbert hate is starting to come from far and wide. This long offseason, without a free agency, is starting to make people crazy.

    It's a shame he didn't mention his thoughts on Mallett and Ponder. I would have loved to hear his thoughts on them.

    Thanks for posting, phinsfan84. It's rare to see an article that is this interesting.
