    I'm all for drafting heavy on defense, but if one of these QB's would drop to us in later rounds, is there one you'd like to see us draft? There could be a quality prospect available to us later in the draft. Maybe a guy Trestman could work with to be a quality - and affordable - backup to Cutler a year from now.

    It looks like 6'6", Logan Thomas from Virginia Tech, could be available for one of our two 6th round picks. He's definitely a project, but maybe this is the kind of youngster Trestman can help develop.

    "A well-put-together athlete and looks the part with a tall, long frame. Physical runner and not afraid to lower his pads, making it like trying to bring down a tree trunk with his finishing toughness. Above average arm strength to quickly load and fire with effortless velocity to get away with flat-footed throws. Strongly-built and stout in the pocket to shake off defenders and bounce right back up after hits. Good quickness and scrambling ability to make plays with his legs (1,359 career rushing yards). Appears calm and under control in the huddle and stays even-keeled despite mistakes. Toughs out injuries and will play through pain. Good head on his shoulders and displays natural leadership traits. Has developed thick skin and mental toughness. Several school-records, including consecutive quarterback starts (40), career completions (693), career rushing scores by a quarterback (24) and career passing touchdowns (53)."

    I can't really say until I see what our needs are but other than filling and back filling the defensive holes you have to think some OC might attract them from the 4th on down. I think the first three guys should be defensive players if they can find the right guys in the right spots.

    The guy has the height and frame that Emery/Tresticles wants, so if they are looking for a project to mature 2-3 years down the line this guy is as good as any. The 4th-6th rounds should be going BPA to try and backfil any holes on O or D, and a young qb is defineately a hole.

    No to Logan Thomas, he's just another Vince Young 2.0.

    If you want somebody with great size, Zach Mettenberger is your guy. I'd also a take a closer look at Wyoming's Brett Smith.

    The team could do a lot worse then a young VY molded by Trestman who has zero weight of having to carry the weight of a top pick on him and the franchise on him.
    I wouldn't mind Mettenberger either, but I don't know the team can afford to get him where I think he might get grabbed.
    Smith is not the "ideal size" that Tresti and Emery have talked about, if you are looking at smaller guys then there is a list of them I would take over a guy that played in Wyoming, TBoyd who played for Clemson and Pachell from TCU are both worth looking at if 6 ft is the marker

    Logan Thomas is suppose to have a good arm and terrible foot work, easily fixable with good coaching, I have been watching him as well and he will prob. be there in RD 6. I think he makes a lot of sense in Rd 6. With or without McCown as he could be on the Scout team his first yr and hopefully be a good back up for a few yrs. When Cutler is done he would hopefully be ready to step in. I know I keep saying hopefully but anytime you take a player in rd 6 there is going to be a lot of "hope"fullies.

    Aaron Murray would be perfect in our system. The kid is a winner.

    Murray or McCarron

    McCarron played in a pro system already and would transition well in trestmans system
