Moving on to the Jaguars we have a very interesting situation with a 3rd overall pick who is apparently not going to start. With Gus Bradley going out of his way to state that Chad Henne will be the starter at least at the beginning of the season, the Jags have a very old school dynamic going on. Think about it, when was the last time you heard about a high pick rookie QB having to come in and earn his job? I love the way Gus is handling this situation, much like every situation since coming to Jacksonville. In an ideal world Chad Henne will play well enough for the defense and Toby Gerhart to carry the team to a decent record (4-4 or 5-3) and then be able to turn the reins over to Blake Bortles and keep the ball rolling all the way into the playoffs.
Jake Locker, that is all. At this point what else needs to be said? You probably either think the kid is the savior of the Titans or another draft dud. Locker has the same kind of opinions about him that Ryan Tannehill has in Miami. I tend to be in the second camp, I really don't see much with Locker, he seems like an athlete with a good arm but I haven't seen him really do anything spectacular. If he had a proven QB guru coaching him I think he could be great, but he seems really raw to me and I'm not sure if Tennessee is the right spot for him.
Alright, so I'll admit it, I was wrong. When Luck and RGIII came into the draft I was the biggest RGIII supporter and was sure he'd be better than Luck. And while I have a lot of confidence in RGIII and the Redskins new coaching staff, I have a very bold (perhaps foolish) prediction for Andrew Luck. Next season, Andrew Luck will be the best QB in the NFL. I think he will be in the top three in yards and TDs, and be either first or second in QBR. Whether he wins MVP or not I don't know, but he will be recognized by the media as one of the top QBs in the game with similar reverence as Aaron Rodgers. Luck's ability as a passer and a leader is well known and right up there with the Brady, Manning, and Brees' of the league, but perhaps the thing that sets him apart is his athletic ability. Depsite being the "pro-style" QB in the draft, Luck had the same 40 time as Cam Newton and has shown the ability and willingness to run with the ball when necessary
(Case in point, his Tim Tebow/Brett Favre impersonation from the playoff game against KC)
