    What's with the knocks on Brodie Croyle? If he hadn't gotten murdered behind Alabama's offensive line, or lack thereof, he probably would have been a first round pick the year he came out. I'd give odds on him ending up a better pro than, say, John Beck.

    I don't know. When a guy falls that far in the draft, surely there are reasons. A number of teams seemed to have trouble with the accuracy of Quinn's arm and Miami seems to feel that's where Beck excels.

    Not to mention that he had to deal with FOUR coaching changes during his time there (recruited by Dubose, Franchione, Price, Shula). He put up good numbers on teams that were usually run-oriented. I'm a little biased because I know him and his family pretty well, but I think Croyle will be a capable pro.

    a lot of people just hate Alabama/Saban, even though Croyle didn't play for Saban. That's the knock on Brodie Croyle

    Warren Sapp . . .

    Dan Marino . . .

    There are reasons, all right.

    Most of them bad.

    Quinn may very well be a bust or just mediocre. But there have been MANY worse quarterbacks taken higher.

    I would love to see a study of how much --- if any --- all this intricate 21st century scouting and combine nonsense has really added to the accuracy of gauging first-round talent correctly.

    From Johnny Unitas to Joe Montana to Tom Brady . . . it seems every bit the crapshoot today that it was 50 years ago.

    Front seven is as good as anyone.

    Back four? Not so much.

    Is that why Montana was taken in the third round?

    Zero arm strength is gonna zap you in the draft every time.

    Hard to hang the hat on "I just know he has the intangibles to win four SBs."
