    Cook and Goff are the same height and size yet one is described as having a small frame and the other a solid frame. Late round or possible free agent QB’s I like are Cody Kessler and Vernon Adams.

      Enjoyed your QB report BTW.

    2. 1.2


      Cook weighs 2 pounds more. It must be those 2 extra pounds that determine the difference between small and solid.

    I remember this time last yr when I had arguments with fellow posters about Mariotta’s size so I guess with their logic Goff, Cook, Allen and Hogan who are all under 220 are to thin to play qb in the NFL, hilarious

    1. 2.1


      Before you say something stupid like ” well Mariotta was hurt last yr” let me point out it was his knee, size and nothing to do with knees, look at Big Ben who was beaten up for various injuries last yr before you respond

    Goff’s body type is little more thin despite being similar weight. Proportionately as far as the build goes. To me he look smaller than Cook. And this also comes from talking to some friends in scouting circles.

    I met Kevin Hogan and he looks like the cable guy rather than a collegiate qb, but same can be said for Montana and Brady, you don’t need to have a body of Hercules like a Brady Quinn and Tim Tebow to throw a football or weigh heavy like Big Ben and Jamies who recently lost weight go figure

    I don’t know about the durability of Mariotta, but the knee injury he suffered against the Dolphins would have knocked any QB out of the game.

    We have 4 QBs now…we need 2….we have gaping holes at safety, DE, and IMO OL….and needs at CB, DT, WR….that is all.

  7. 7


    QB last year. Moving on……..DE, Corner, DL, safety.

  8. 8


    I hope they don’t waste a draft pick on a QB. I would rather see them use all of their later round picks on needs, and maybe finding another steal. Or at the least a raw talented project player with a lot of upside. Anything but a QB.
