The fact that Andy Reid, a guy who's well known for his prowess with QB's decided to take Alex Smith rather than draft any QB's in this draft should have been a clue that this was a putrid QB class indeed. Neither Manuel nor Geno are 1st rounders in any quality QB class, were Geno coming out in next year's draft, he could have very well ended up in the 3rd round or even further down the boards.
Just a lot of mediocre quarterbacks that have issues with either mental aptitude, arm strength, accuracy, or a combination of all of the above. I can see Barkley becoming a decent starter, and Nassib I felt has the best overall potential of any of them. I love the Bray pickup, if he can sit and watch, develop, he could turn into a decent QB down the road. I think Manuel and Geno are both going to end up as epic busts for their respective teams.
