    Drew Anderson has decided to transfer out of University of Buffalo...to MURRAY STATE. Breaking now.

    He's a graduate transfer, so he will play immediately.

    Couldn't get a better offer than MURRAY STATE? Kid showed he could be starting a ton of different FBS teams.

    Give him to me at South Florida, FFS.

    USF got Blake Barnett. Although I agree in regards to Drew Anderson. I think college football programs and the NFL are both behind at the moment on that kid.

    Baffled by Clayton Thorson's ranking here

    Low or high? Seems about right to me.

    I mean, I'm not the fan of Eric Dungey that Slimm is, but I'm a far bigger fan of Nick Fitzgerald than Slimm evidently is, so that probably washes out.

    When I watch Clayton Thorson play, watch his feet, the way he carries himself, throw process, arm, accuracy, all of that...he looks like a pro to me. He had a poor year, as Northwestern lost some pieces in 2017. He had crap protection and it showed all over the place. There was also just some curious sloppiness from parts of the skill unit at times. With that around him, it didn't always go very well when they dropped back to pass.

    Oddly, and sadly given how easily over-matched Northwestern's offensive line and skill units seemed to be in 2017, the defense he faced where I really thought everything around Thorson calmed down enough to actually get an evaluation was the Michigan State game. I say sadly because I can't help but think man, how far Dantonio's team has fallen.

    Granted, Bowling Green and Nevada were defenses that a Clayton Thorson was bound to dice up regardless of how things are going with Northwestern's offense relative to its competition.

    Thorson is by far the best QB in the 2019 class IMO. I gave Herbert a late 1 and have him #2

    I could be convinced to throw in a Clayton Thorson above Kyle Kempt, maybe Drew Lock...but for now I don't see putting him above Drew Anderson, Nick Fitzgerald, or Ryan Finley. Just my personal opinion. And if we're including the juniors like you have with Justin Herbert then I find you've got to reckon with Jake Bentley, Brian Lewerke, possibly others like Tyree Jackson, Daniel Jones, and Khalil Tate.

    Clayton Thorson needs to put it all together. He doesn't have the pure nuclear play making power that Josh Allen did to where you can just evaluate him high off his look and smell, dismissing the extensive amount of struggling.

    If Thorson is the best in the upcoming draft, that draft has major issues. I don't know what you see to be honest. I would potentially rate Grier and Stidham over Thorson as well.

    This is why Slimm and I are so high on Drew Anderson, despite the fact he's got only four games of FBS experience and will now try and resurrect Murray State from the dregs of the FCS (while earning his Masters Degree).

    Ill be honest. I have never seen Anderson play. Watching this video though, there is something mechanically that is just not pleasing to the eye. From his arm action(which seems super inconsistent) to his footwork. I cant quite put my finger on it.

    Why so low on Stidham?

    I don't like Stidham's composure under pass rush pressure. Not a big Easton Stick fan. I'd probably take every quarterback on my list here over him.

    I wouldn't take him before the 7th just because of that ridiculous name alone after never watching him play. Easton Stick has about as much chance of being a franchise QB as Blaine Gabbert did ... based on a similar criteria.

    What do you all think of Will Grier?. I was upset when the Gators let him go because of the PEDs. Looks like he’s matured since then and his accuracy is gold.

    I’m all in on the Jarrett Stidham train though, I think he’s going to be good this year, he’s a smart football player with brains to dissect a defense. I also want to see how Shea Patterson plays in Harbaughs system, he could be good as well.

    Justice Hansen is really talented, compelling on the field.

    But man do I get a Todd Marinovich vibe coming off him.

    Will Grier has some undeniable talent and moxie, but the history and the wildness (accuracy, decision making) on the field are a little unnerving. Not for weak stomachs, that's for sure.

    Any of these guys could put it together and become a really good prospect and that includes Grier. There's a lot of talent out there. Sometimes I wonder why so much focus on just Will Grier. Maybe it's the stats (which were incredible, though not unheard of in Dana Holgorsen's offense). Maybe it's the obvious comparison to Mayfield. Maybe it's the mystique of having been 6-0 at Florida before getting caught for the PEDs, the fact he's really only lost 3 games in his college career (13 wins).

    But there are a lot of guys out there that have talent. Justice Hansen has talent. Drew Anderson, Nick Fitzgerald, Ryan Finley, Drew Lock, Clayton Thorson, Eric Dungey, and Kyle Kempt have talent. Those are just the seniors. Among the underclass, you've got to contend with the likes of Khalil Tate, Brian Lewerke, Jake Bentley, Armani Rogers, Justin Herbert, Elijah Sindelar, Daniel Jones, Nate Stanley, Tyree Jackson, Shea Patterson. Tons of talent just lying around on the ground. The question is what are you going to do to separate?

    Just having big stats in Dana Holgorsen's Air Raid aren't enough. Just having a big arm and arm talent aren't enough because most of those guys do, too. Many of them have better size. I talk about Khalil Tate some, well I know what Khalil does to separate himself. At 18 years old the kid is setting FBS records running for 300+ yards in a game with his 4.4 speed, then turning around and killing defenses with that beautiful, natural stroke of his. What separates Will Grier?

    Grier does remind me of Rex Grossman, quite a bit.
