Well I hate that I have to do this again, but I'll cast a tie-breaking vote for WR Jeremy Maclin. A lot of NFL scouts and GMs had him rated just behind Crabtree prior to the NFL Draft, and on average, I'm seeing Maclin as the 2nd WR selected in over a dozen rookie drafts which I've observed so far this year.

Next poll: Who is the #8 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts?

Alex Smith - Utah
Rex Grossman - Florida
Tim Couch - Kentucky
Ryan Leaf - Washington St.
Andre Ware - Houston
Jeff George - Illinois (although the article is pushing it calling him a bust, he led the NFL in TD's and passer rating in 97, and led two seperate teams to the playoffs, yea he may of been a migrater and never stuck with one franchise but you really can't call him a bust)
Vince Young - Texas
Jamarcus Russel - LSU



All ran the spread offense, that's a bigger red flag for me then Juniors...Both Sanchez and Stafford were in pro style offenses, have made pro style reads and throws before, Sanchez while a junior has been at USC 4 years in that system and been learning all that time, not only that he'll be drafted into a great situation that has a top flight offensive line, ground game, and defense, not a better recipe for a young QB possible.


Stafford has led that Georgia team since he was a freshman, and he has been a dominant QB since HS, I think he's been destined to have a bright future ahead of him for a long time now, and I think Detroit finally has the right management in town to properly develop a QB...That track record really isn't pretty but I'm pretty confident both QB's won't be considered bust at the next level, alot of how a QB turns out is how he is developed and coached up.


Stafford has a high enough ceiling that I'd think about late 1st, he really does look like Jay Cutler, and Cutler made plenty of screw ups while he was at Vandy, if that's how he turns out he'd be well worth that late 1st pick, but 7 is still a tad early for me to even bother with the risk.



Grossman and Russell did not play in spread offenses.

Since when has Florida not ran the spread offense? They have never been a pro style offense from what I can remember, especially during the time Grossman was there...LSU also runs the spread, I'm pretty sure they ran it when JR was there because they still have the same system in place.

Uh, since their entire history prior to 2002.

I think you're confusing the term "pass-heavy" with the term "spread". They are two mutually exclusive things that are in no way related.

And no, LSU did not run the spread when Russell was there.

No I'm not confusing the two, I know the difference, I was just under the impression that Spurrier ran the spread but maybe it was just the run N gun with different variations, and the LSU offense looked very similiar to the same one ran by Texas...If they don't no biggie.

LSU runs a version of it now, but they did not at the time. Spurrier's offense is different then the spread, and Zook coached Gossman his last season and they ran a pro style system that year.
