ok i hear ya, solid backup...thats more like it, but do you think hes first or second round talent? cause i really dont. I think Troy Smith is better than him and should be the third QB taken. Stanton has the size that teams want, but i just dont think he has the talent...to be a good starter anyway. hes far from being the jay cutler or ben roethlisberger of this draft....i know you didnt say he was but ive heard other places that teams might reach for him or one of the other guys in the late first, which i think is stupid
Who ever thinks Stanton is Jay Cutler or Big Ben needs to put the crack pipe down.lol Those comparisons are way off.
Stanton's only flaw has been his decision making... I know it's a big flaw, but with the right coaching staff it can be corrected. He defintely tried to do too much at MSU, throwing the ball away every now and then would help. He has all the tools and can make every throw. His leadership and swagger are second to none in this years class of QB's.
He's a big kid with a big arm and a lot of confidence... I kinda like him.
I know he impressed during his interviews... If you've ever heard him talk he seems like a really cool kid who is very personable. Definitely the kind of presense teammates respond to, or enjoy playing for/with... there are many articles from his days at MSU to prove it.
The decision making would worry me... although at times he showed signs of greatness and his decision making was crisp. That kinda makes me think he can read defenses and react... rather than a guy who will never "get it".
I fortgot to mention that he can really move for a big quarterback... that will be obvious if he is forced into starting early in his career. I could see him relying on his feet more. Could be tough for defenses at first... kinda like Big Ben.
