    I'm kinda with Emery on this one, I'd rather have one early to develop than someone like this. You can fix mental mistakes and technique. You're not going to magically get him taller and strap him with a cannon for an arm. I'll take a ST demon over a 3rd QB.

    Plus, I kinda like Palmer.

    He's just one more guy to take some snaps and compete. He fits a Trestman type offense but I don't see him having much chance of sticking around long with his lack of arm strength. Not sure I even understand the pick after Emery put down taking a QB this late and expecting him to ever have a shot at becoming a pro QB.

    Might dominate preseason within Trest's system but dunno about anything beyond that. Could be a good PS guy who exemplifies what our offense should be ran as.. against scout players at least.

    With the system, he could become a quality QB (likely not a stud) that could get teams to offer a pick for him in a year or two. Who knows.

    If we get anything more than a 6th for him then he's a great pick. Cutler goes down, no one has tape on Fales and he dominates a few teams with Marshall and Alshon bailing him out.. we then get some silly team to offer up a high to mid round pick for him. Crazier things have happened I guess.

    No one significant so far has been drafted between Fales and our next pick so I don't hate it.

    This late in the draft is typically where you look for prospects you believe could be coached and show dramatic improvement. I always feel big linemen give you the best chance at this point in the draft unless you go for a high risk character guy like Wilson last yr who so far is a gem. Hoping for Lyerla still this yr, but he definitely has some baggage.
