Nice analysis here of the QB inflation.

Quote:
Yes, absolutely on the QB grades. It’s a little unfair, but we saw the same thing with defensive tackles the year after Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy were taken in the top three. But we also saw this in 2004 after Manning, Rivers and Roethlisberger were picked. For the next couple of years, QBs will be compared to Luck, RG3, Tannehill and Russell Wilson (not so much Brandon Weeden).

I’ve used the Bradford comparison for Smith. Like Bradford, I think Smith will have to be put in the right situation to succeed. I’m not sure Bradford has been put in that spot. One thing to remember about Smith is that he’s been throwing to Stedman Bailey since high school. How has that helped his play? How will it negatively hurt him going forward? Wait, I’m not supposed to be asking questions here!

To succinctly answer your question, they’ll be skewed this year, but things will settle next year. Then Teddy Bridgewater will re-raise the bar in 2014. Book it.

I am wrong 20x more than I'm right and I will troll this site with my uneducated football takes.
