    Bortles is going to be a star in this league. It is obvious you did not see UCF play South Carolina or Baylor. He is the most pro-ready quarterback in the draft. In a few years you will crying on your DC show, “drafting RG3 was the biggest mistake in franchise history”.

    No way, Bridgewater is the most pro-ready with his excellent footwork and supurb decision-making. Bortles, Carr, and (maybe) Manziel may have higher potential ceilings, but will need considerably more coaching to be ready as starters. Bortles and Carr were both drafted into excellent situations with decent veteran QBs ahead of them that will help ease their transition as well as some good offensive weapons around them. Bridgewater may not have a high ceiling, but will likely be able to flourish in a West-Coast or Norv Turner style “Coryell” offense.
    If Manziel starts from Week 1 next year, I expect him to throw 25+ interceptions and many, many sacks if he is not injured sometime before week 5. Just watch Manziel’s games – he makes TONS of terrible decisions. He throws into crowds of defenders very often and is only saved by the elite abilities of Evans as WR; in the NFL many of those throws end up as INTs. On many snaps, he seems to make a single read before giving up on a pass-play and running the ball; he frequently ignores wide-open receivers in order to make ill-considered scrambles that work out in the college game, but that will end up badly in the NFL game. On many play-action passes (admittedly, at least some of them are option plays) the defense bites HARD on the play-action and leaves several WR uncovered yet Manziel will give up on the pass and run the ball – another example of his play style that succeeds at the college level but will fail at the NFL level.
