zbellino, I don't get it, If Brady had all these great traits, a couple of question marks, and the only negative was weight and maybe experience, I would think he would have been taken much earlier.
It only takes a couple, sometimes even one, question mark to bring a player down several rounds. This is especially true for a QB. There are any number of QBs with one or two good seasons, who will not get drafted simply because there isn't enough tape to make a coach feel comfy. Brady was, no doubt, in that group. The kid had only two years at QB. That is short. Every QB drafted on day one this year has at least three years at pass-first schools, most have four. If someone asked me to eval a player with solid mechanics, etc, but only two years experience, I would say the same thing . . . wait until late day two because two years is short experience.
I also think it is strange that someone like Bill Walsh would see nothing in watching Brady show his stuff.
OK. Strange. But he is the best drafter. Right? BB saw something in him right? Still not sure what our point is about Walsh.
I am sure Walsh saw 'nothing' in more players that made it. Seeing nothing (nothing stands out as elite) and seeing flaws (Tebow's inaccuracy, footwork, throwing mechanics)are two separate things.
Are you sure these aren't just your opinions after watching him and reading about him "after" he took over the starting job for the Pats?
Are you sure this isn't your opinion after being a super-huge man-crush fan of Tebow's for a while? Don't think that is not skewing your judgement?
And no, this is not my opinion, this is what was said about him coming out of college. I could name any number of college QBs with one question mark this year, who won't be drafted at all.
I would take Walsh's judgement of talent over BB any day.
Even though Walsh saw nothing in Brady and BB did? That doesn't make any sense. It would appear to me that drafting a QB like Brady on day two versus drafting a QB like Montana on day one are two different leagues of skill. No?
Walsh drafted his entire starting secondary in one of his early drafts that played for years.
What does this have to do with Tebow and Brady?
Saw things in Montana and Young that no one else saw. Taking the the greates QB of all time in the 3rd round didn't mean he didn't see little in him. It is shrewed to let players drop down to lower rounds, knowing no one saw what you saw in him.
This . . .
If Brady had as much talent as you say, and all he needed was some bulk and experience, I still say he would have been taken much earlier.
. . .contradicts this. When Walsh takes Montana in the 3rd instead of first it is shrewd. When BB takes Brady in the 6th, it is not shrewd?
Make sense dude.
Again, non-points. This is illogical. You still don't understand. James Harrison was a UFA. Evey team in the NFL passed on this guy. Does that mean NE should draft Tebow? Because once upon a time a scouting report short changed a player?
Does Bill Walsh endorse Tim Tebow? NO? Then what does he have to do with your argument?
Frankly, you are contradicting yourself. You are saying that BW was the greatest drafter ever. You would take his judgement over BBs. But he didn't draft Brady. So NE should select Tebow ahead of where he should go?
Honestly, slow down friend. Even at the root, logical level you are not making sense.
You would be better off telling people why you think Tebow is a good prospect, than making up/bringing in all this weird stuff that has nothing to do with the situation.
