I've seen a couple of pro comps for Watson of....Tyrod Taylor. That being said I'd rather have a 21 year old Tyrod with the possibility of growth and progression than a 27 year old Tyrod who has maxed out

Ok, I never watch college football. I did watch the first half last night. In 1 half of football I saw a kid that would struggle at the NFL level. Did not see the second half or the way he "tore" up Bama. So like I said that is all I have see of him so I digress.

His offensive line is also...not good, facing a DL with future pros at the starting and rotational spots.

First half he didnt play so hot youre right but thats what I love about this kid. Made the adjustments to bring them back into the game then in the final seconds brought his team down the field to win the game. The moment wasn't too big for him and found a way to win at all costs, yes there were a couple great catches to help him out but he made the right reads. Everything is there for this kid to be a superstar.

We'd need to pull a Dikta and trade the entire draft plus next year's #1 to move up to where he'll be. Not a possibility anymore because we'd go straight to salary cap hell. Besides, like when Andrew Luck came out, someone near the top is going to say this pick isn't for sale for any price.

He struggled a lot in that game.   He will struggle immensely in the NFL.   He will make a good backup QB.   I think people are nuts who want this guy as a starting quarterback in the NFL.   This guy is like a less talented version of Tyrod.   And yet people here are going goo goo over him.   Even people who don't want Tyrod to stay.  Ridiculous.   Be careful what you wish for.

He fits our O perfectly. Athletic, strong, smart and has the heart it takes. Not afraid to take shots and is our best option if we dump Tyrod. Tore up a legendary bama d tonight.

Also on a side note lets get Ben Boulware. Love the way he plays the game. Super instinctive.

Tear me apart go ahead but I think Watson is our best bet to succeed in the near future.

Not going to be the same O with Rex gone.

He's a projected 3-4 round pick for a reason. His completions were 2 yard bubble screens that the receiver ran for a lot of yards or lobs to a tall receiver who outjumped the defender. He's certainly not as athletic as our qb now.

I totally disagree with you.

I do, sadly, agree with this.

One question - how does he fit our O? We don't have a coach.

Exactly. Roman is gone. "Our O" isn't going to be the same next season.

Have you ever even watched football?  He is so much better than Cardale Jones.  Really, it is not even close.

Where? :D

I went back to see if I read that wrong and it said "top 3-4 overall pick." He's been a 1st round lock for 3 years.

So you missed the 2 beautiful passes to Leggett, one caught at the towards the end of the game and the one that would have been a perfect throw had Leggett not stopped the route for a split second.  The missed throw was actually more impressive.  He read the defense perfectly, threw a perfect ball at the perfect time...Leggett just let up a tad and couldn't recover.  This is NOT the old West Virginia offense of screens and short routes from Geno Smith. 

 

And throwing it up to your best WR who can make plays is a bad thing?  Haven't we been screaming for Tyrod to do that to Sammy for years?

 

The guy has talent, a great head on his shoulders and is a true leader (something we have lacked severely with Tyrod).  Sign me up for him on draft day, no question.  The great news is that there are a lot of quality players at the top of this draft.  At this time, I'd be pretty happy with Watson, Williams, Hooker, or Adams.

If he's there at 10 it's a no-brainer. But then, Whaley is brainless, so we'd likely take a safety.
