Yeah that's the Browns and Butch Davis...philyphin said:First round picks in general are probably about 30% hit, not just Quarterbacks, ask the browns who were 0 for 3 with W. Green, Brown and T. Couch. all top ten picks, all have been duds for the Browns.
When is the last time we hit on a first round pick for that matter, Avery & Yatil Green were both 1st round duds.
You do realize that a 30% success rate in the first round is much greater than the 6% success round in all the rounds after the first?Oboy said:Yup he did. Most here are in agreeance that if we were to take a QB with the #2 it would be Smith. I am just not sold that Saban wants to put that much into a QB... He said something (sorry can't remember where) about the percentage of a first round QB succeeding. Something like 30%, which makes me think he will either trade down or take another position.
Big Ben fell to the 11th pick overall. Not even top 10. I don't mind taking Smith there at two, but I too feel this is a smokescreen. When it comes to the offseason, you NEVER set things in stone. You throw out possibilities and then let other teams draw their own conclusions.BringBackShula said:yea...it's a scary thing talking top 5 qb's...How low did Roethlisburger drop to for Pittsburg?? Like 7th or something? We gotta trade down.
KB21 said:He realizes that Lefors doesn't have the size to play in the NFL.
Why should I back off? When I form an opinion on a player, that opinion is set in stone. Lefors is too small and will be in the CFL before the NFL. Not to mention that he has a weak arm as well.fishypete said:Keith...you have a thing about players being too small....get over it....he's the same size as Brees....even you have to admit that now...or don't you believe the combine? At least give yourself some room to back off his size....just in case Saban picks him in the 5th to 6th round. LeFors is as good as ANY QB in this draft....his stats should tell you this....the're better than Rodgers and Smiths...yet you still won't give an inch....unlike you Keith.
Rodgers is nothing more than atypical west coast QB, one that only has appx 22 games experience...and Smith hasn't and can't play behind a center yet....hype..hype..hype. It happens every draft...some players get hyped....and some get trappled on...but it seems the ones that get stepped on...survive longer than those that have the unearned glory. O'well my friend...we'll still have fun...won't we!!
I don't think that's irony. But the truth is I'm not sure. I haven't understood what irony is since that freaking song (by morissette, I think).PhinKev said:It would be almost ironic if SF took Smith and rendered all of this moot.
