Okay, here is the Scout's Inc, big board for the top 32 players as they see it. Scouts Inc is supposed to be a collection of former scouts and GM's that review tape and set the board. If we were trusting this board, Bridgewater is the 8th best player, Bortles is the 10th and Manziel is ranked 21st. Carr isn't in the top 32, yet some here would pick him as our pick at @7. If this was our Bucs team big board and Lewan was there at #7, along with all three other quarterbacks would you still advocate picking Lewan as the BPA? No, you say, we already have Collins, so we'll pick the quarterback. So you aren't exactly following BPA are you? What if Bridgewater and Bortles have been selected, based upon this board, do you still pick Manziel - further going against your board? BPA is a myth that teams tell the fans. In the end, they have their board and that board is going to be completely different than the Scouts Inc board, Mel Kiper's board or McShay's board. In the end, the Bucs will pick the BPA that fills a need or upgrades an existing position. JMO. (Which is why CJ Mosley is still my sleeper pick for the Bucs).1. Jadeveon Clowney* DE2.

Stop with this nonsense! You mean to tell me the "ELITE, FRANCHISE, SUPER-DUPER, SAVE THE TEAM QUARTERBACKS" are ranked this low?!?!? Total blasphemy and a slap in the face to all of the future NFL GM's that constantly post on this board. ::) ::) ::) ::)
It's what I've been saying about this QB class. I don't see the next Andrew Luck in the bunch. They all have question marks.
And they are dropping as the draft comes closer. Just noticed in another thread that Kiper had Manziel rated #1 on his draft board and now has moved him down to #8. That just goes to show you how different draft boards are, Scouts has Manziel at #21, Kiper just (reluctantly it appears) dropped him to #8. I don't know where McShay has him ranked at this point.
