"Yeah, I think you probably want to try it there (at quarterback) and see," Reid said. "He's pretty good. I would. I'd give that a whirl. I could handle that, yeah."

The talk of Jackson changing positions became a hot topic earlier this month when former Bills and Colts GM Bill Polian, an analyst for ESPN, suggested during an appearance on the Golic and Wingo show Jackson should move to wide receiver, citing size, explosiveness, athleticism, and what Polian perceived as his shortcomings in the accuracy department, as the main reasons for the move.

"Yeah, I'm not much on that," Reid said. "I want to bring him in. Let's exhaust that other thing that we know he's good at and see. I'm just saying in general. This is a general statement: Let's get him in and let him wing it a little bit and see how he does. We'll be able to fit some things in there I'm sure."



We all know Reid loves to take flyers on QBs in the draft, think Jackson will be yet another one?

I wouldn't be all that happy if they drafted him, unless its like in the 5th round or something. With a lot of needs and not many premium draft picks, the Chiefs have much bigger needs than a project backup QB.

We had a decent receiver on the roster at QB with Pryor a few years ago and let him go without a tryout at WR.

No chance we draft Jackson, though.

If you know you are not taking a qb you want him to move up so it drops a non qb down a notch maybe andy going that angle too. Fun being a fan now days knowing we aren't the ones getting hoodwinked.

More probable for a late first. Teams willing to take a QB in the early 2nd would rather move up to the late first and get that 5th year option. Patriots are always willing to take a pick off of someone willing to do this.

Drafted 21st overall but yeah it was an odd selection. Polarizing athlete though, 6'6, 240 pound and as you mentioned ran a 4.3 40 time. In 2008 he posted 761 yards receiving in 12 games before being suspended for violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

I would actually prefer Denver to trade down and if they take a QB, go with Jackson. I think he has similar upside to whichever QB falls to 5 and would prefer taking a shot at getting the Bills' two picks and grabbing Jackson and another player, DB or OL.

I just really do not want them to take Mayfield or Allen...

BryanBusby
04-24-2018, 09:11 AM
I don't think the Broncos will have a shot at Mayfield or Allen. They will probably be looking at Josh Rosen and because John Elway is a shitty person in general, I can't see that ever happening.

Guess I think there is a that 2 QB's will be off the board by the time they pick and 1 of them is Darnold. Could be wrong but do not see the Giants going QB and passing on Barkely. They need a 100% lock to be the face of the franchise with Beckham having a foot out the door. The Browns might trade down but do not see them going out out of the top 10, which reduces the chances they make a move out of #4.

You think Eli Manning is going to get a contract extension with the Giants? Sounds like a real stretch. 2019 is it for him in NYG and finding a QB in the '19 draft is a real gamble.

This thread is the cycle of abuse personified. We have been beaten and abused for so long by Fat Scott and King Carl that we can not resist the urge to discuss possible QB options in the draft.

I am so happy for the first time in decades to not give a single F about any qb in this draft, the only reason I have any interest at all is to see what turd is chosen and how drunk Dewars on the rocks is on draft day when that 5th pick comes up.

For the first time in over 30 years I can emphatically state I give no craps about any young qb until ours shows he is not the guy. It's so nice to not give a single shit anymore. Only exception is the Elway clown show, which gets better by the year, much like his alcohol tolerance.

To me it seems every mock draft has them taking Barkely. Maybe it is a smokescreen. On the other hand I think Chubb and Barkley are the two best players. None of the QB's are sure things. None of them are as good as Mahomes. Most drafts this crop would be looking at mid first round types. So can I see a team that needs a QB passing on them and building a Jacksonville run first type team when you have a average QB for a year or two.

All these QB's are going earlier than they should be going and people really need to adjust their perceived value on these prospects.

I watched Jackson in quite a few games (U of L Alum). He is fast, thinks on his feet and decides in a hurry to either run or pass.

Unfortunately, he'll get away with that for the first year or two and then, just like the rest of the "run, pass" QBs - the NFL WILL catch up.

However, if I'm Reid and Jackson is there - grab him....

Shields68

Sure but you still have 6-7 different views that may control where the top 5 QB's are going to be going. Is it inconceivable that a team like the Giants may have Barkley ahead of all or all but one of the QB's on their draft board? Not everyone will adjust their thinking just because it looks like a run on the QB's at the top of this years draft.

If they have any RB ahead of the QB's on their board, with a 37 year old at QB, they are fucking retarded.

Teams have already adjusted their thinking on the QB's for every single draft. That's why you had long, serious discussions about a sack of dicks like Josh Allen possibly going #1 overall.

Yeah, it's not 2012 NFL. Running backs who can carry it, catch out of the backfield, and pass protect on blitz pickups are more valuable than ever.

RB as 25 carry, between the tackle bulldozers are no longer the thing. Versatile backs who can create mismatches in the passing game without having to substitute are absolutely worth high first round picks.

Hunt, Cook, and Kamara are going to drive the cost of versatile backs up.

Gurley, Zeke, Fournette, McCaffrety, Bell, Hunt, Kamara, Cook, Mixon - don't kid yourself that RBBC is the new thing. There's been a big swing back the other way. That's like saying that centers are out of fashion in the NBA. Centers who can shoot from deep and guard the pick and roll are just more valuable.

Not sure it is retarded. The odds are that he will have a better career then 3 of the 4 QB's that are going to be drafted high. Sure fans want to win the lottery, but the GM could easily feel there a lot of over rated Paxton Lynch's types at the top of the QB class.

I think you can discount scores from back then. Not sure the players took it seriously. Scores tend to be much higher for QBs now.
