Mayock expects “feeding frenzy” for quarterbacks

Everyone seems to agree that this quarterback draft class is intriguing, but it lacks the elite prospects of previous years.  NFL Network’s Mike Mayock doesn’t expect that to slow teams down from reaching for quarterbacks early.

“There will be a feeding frenzy for QBs this year,” Mayock said on a conference call Wednesday.

He think eight quarterbacks could go in the first three rounds, which would be the most in 60 years.    Mayock wouldn’t be surprised if Jake Locker, for instance, goes at No. 10 to Washington or No. 12 to Minnesota.   (Silva wouldn’t be surprised either.)

That type of pick comes with a lot of risk.

“I think there’s a panic among teams that need quarterbacks. The worst thing you can do is reach for a quarterback and miss,” Mayock said.

    The next worst thing you can do is not reach for a QB and come away without one.

    U right mayock, since no one can trade or sign free agent QBs yet, teams will panic & draft QBs asap even if they dont think highly of which ever QB is left when they pick!!!

    The feeding frenzy comes first. Followed by upset stomach, headache, vomiting, and diahhrea.

    Quarterbacks being picked up in the first round would be very exciting….and the NFL network is very worried that fans will not tune in because of the work stoppage……so I am not very surprised that the NFL is trying to make it seem more exciting than it really is. Locker will not be drafted in the first 12 picks. Guaranteed.

    I’m so glad my team doesn’t need a QB this year. Sure, there’s a lot of them, but man, none of them are without HUGE question marks.

    Let the frenzy ensue…
    Belichick’s picks at 17, 28 and 33 are getting more valuable by the moment..

    “The worst thing you can do is reach for a quarterback and miss.” Mayock said.

    No. The worst thing is not pulling the trigger AFTER doing your homework on a guy you feel is worthy when your team is on the clock.

    Dan Marino or Aaron Rodgers ring any BELLS anyone??

    Mayock……please stop screaming into the mike during your football broadcasts.

    Please.

    The QB scramble has been on and many teams are drolling having seen what a Aaron Rogers can do to turn a franchise around. He won the SB with his arm and other teams understand that.

    The one huge perceived knock on Rodgers was the fact that he was a Tedford QB. I can guarantee you thats is why many teams passed on the guy including the 49ers.

    Considering all his high pick QBs before Rodgers(Trent Dilfer, David Carr, Akili Smith, Joey Harrington, and Kyle Boller) it’s no shock that the fact that Rodgers played under him was a knock.

    AAron Rogers was a solid college QB, the best thing that happened to him was falling in the draft. Had he went first he would not be the player he is today.

    @ernieernie

    Rogers mobility is a big part of game so dont just win with his arm….idiot
