    They looked competitive against the Dallas defense, anyway.

    I keep wondering about Lawrence. He has all the attributes teams love in drafting a QB — size, arm, etc. — but will it translate in the NFL?He's surrounded by great college players now, but will he be around as much relative talent on whatever team picks him? Making quick, correct decisions is more important than anything, and some guys who were good or better at that in college can't adjust to the speed and power of the pro game. Obviously he'll be the No. 1 pick. I'm just wondering if he'll be a franchise guy for his whole career, or if he'll move around and carve out 10-12 years bouncing around from team to team.

    Lol - tank for Tua was the biggest thing going, and he can't sniff playing time against a career journeyman starting for a 1-3 team.

    Many times I have seen some team damned with faint praise. But never more effectively than that.

    These are the same questions every college QB who's a first round pick, let alone the first overall, faces and have always faced. People wondered if Peyton Manning could make it. He could. People wondered if JaMarcus Russell could make it. He sure could not. But if you need a quarterback, you gotta draft one if you get the chance.

    I think the "floor" for him is pretty low, though, and his peak is obviously great. Like, guys with his profile - gaudy college stats over multiple years AND well-loved by the scouts - are usually at least average regulars in the NFL. Who's the last "consensus #1 pick QB" that didn't do well? Baker Mayfield I suppose was a surprise as the #1 pick, and coming into this year his stock was low, but its taken a nice rebound so far. Goff and Winston, I don't think they've ever been All-Pro level, but they've been average at various points. You have to go back to Jamarcus Russell in 2007 to find the last #1 pick on a QB that was a disaster, and while I'm not sure if he could have done well on any pro team, it sure wasn't going to be the Raiders at that point. Before him, it was Couch in 1999 and David Carr in 2002, and they both got the shit kicked out of them as QBs for expansion teams.

    I always forget Jared Goff was a No.1. pick. I barely remember where he went to college.

    Has anyone yet figured out what rhymes with Trevor or Lawrence?

    And Denver may have won, but I laugh at notion that Drew Lock "led" the Broncos to the win...his stats were horrible.
