I know Noel doesn't have the QB knowledge that Ag does though.

Pro day results.

4.83 in the 40-yard dash
1.66 10-yard dash
2.79 20-yard dash
4.32 20-yard shuttle
7.11 three-cone drill
33-inch vertical jump
98 broad jump
Bench pressed 225 pounds 24 times
33 7/8-inch arm length
9 7/8-inch hands
79 3/8-inch wingspan.
There is nobody posting on here who could do this at any height or any weight. That doesn't even take into account his arm strength which is ridiculous.

Bottom line, is we really don't know what we have in Brock, yet and probably won't for another couple of years.

yep, pretty much. I think we all agree we are hoping for the best when it comes to Twilight. It would be absolutely fantastic if he turns out to be the Broncos next SB winning/HoF QB.

Oh good lord. The dude isn't a complete statue so you morons want to crown him as some kind of super-athlete. It's absurd. Obviously he's a great athlete by normal human standards, but by NFL standards he's nothing special. He's basically on par with Joe Flacco. He can move a bit, he'll run for a few yards every once in a while, but he is not a great athlete playing QB. And when compared to Russell Wilson he is a clumsy giraffe.

"Without a doubt," really? I don't think so .... Geno Smith looks like a taller version of Russell Wilson to me. Both are humble, hard-working nose-to-the-grindstone guys. Like Wilson, Smith put up sick numbers in college, especially TD-Int ratio. And just like Wilson, Smith made a big jump up in conferences his senior year - from Big East to Big XII - despite that move up, his numbers actually improved.

The comparison to Kaepernick is still easily the worst post in this thread.

The better comparison athletically is actually Jay Cutler

If Brock can move around like Cutler I would love it. Cutler is a lot of things but he is pretty good to great about buying time and taking off for some nice 8-10 yard gains

Yeah, what I meant to say is if Brock would have duplicated his numbers from his junior season he would have been the number 1 qb taken

This is what I'm saying. In just about any other draft... Brock is a first rounder.

I just thought this was an interesting bump because of how well Wilson played.

I think I'd still take the risk of Brock. Greater risk = greater reward, and there are several things that we know: Brock has a cannon arm, he can move for his size, and he has notchy mechanics but plenty of time to work them out.

I had Brock beat on the 40 in High School... not anymore though. Brock is bigger, stronger, and faster than me at this point.

I could see some people on here maybe running faster than a 4.8.... other than that, I don't believe anyone on here who says they're more athletic than Ozzy. Or any pro football player, for that matter.

I mean some of us might be faster and/or stronger than some QBs/Kickers. (I'm pretty sure I could outrun Sebastian Janikowski), but still...

Homertastic. You'd take a one season college spread QB who's yet to throw an NFL pass over a ROY caliber playoff winner who damn near drove his team into a conference championship where he wouldve played a team he made look silly just a few weeks earlier.

There was some debate to be had in preseason. At this point you take Wilson 100 times out of 100.

There is being athletic, and using those abilities. I learned real fast at ASU, the world is full of fast strong guys (I was a 4.5 guy), when there's 20 other guys with the same physical skills as you, it comes down to translating them to on field performance. Brock has elite measurables and athletic skills, his future will be determined by how he translates them. There are no physical attributes that can pointed to as negative. It is silly to say that.

Will he grasp the mental game, will he take his physical freakness and make it work on the field? I will be curious to find out when one of the greatest QB's of all time decides to hang them up.

I think that's a pretty accurate assessment. Right now obviously Russel Wilson > than Brock and it's not even close. However, we have yet to see if Brock's physical attributes and mental toughness will translate into being a good NFL QB. We have yet to see if Russell Wilson will sustain his success over multiple years. It's still a really fluid situation. Like I said earlier, we probably won't know what we have with Osweiler until 2014-15 at the earliest.

I do know that calling a gigantic 22-year-old who runs a 4.8 40, can throw a football 70 yards, bench pressed 225 24 times despite having the wingspan of a Pterodactyl and was offered a full-ride to play hoops by a top 25 D1 program "unathletic" is retarded even by Mane retard standards.

Russel would not have played had we drafted him. How can one compare?
