Dolphins showing their hand? First day QB

In the last two weeks Cam Cameron and Randy Mueller have attended private workouts for Brady Quinn, Drew Stanton, and Trent Edwards. Also, Mueller recently said the Dolphins are hoping to select a quarterback in the draft.

While this could be a smokescreen, chance are the Dolphins will draft a quarterback on the first day (first three rounds). Quinn is likely the choice if he falls to the Dolphins in the first round. Stanton and Edwards could be options in round two.

The number three ranked QB prospect

Just about everyone agrees the top two QB prospects in the 2007 NFL draft are Jamarcus Russell and Brady Quinn, but who is number three?

Opinons are all over the map. Ask just about any scout or draft expert and you're likely to receive a different anwer.

Drew Stanton seems to have the best chance right now of being the third QB taken. Stanton has all of the skills you dream of when you think of a quarterback. He has good size, a good arm, but is also a very good athlete. The biggest problem with Stanton is his consistency.

Kevin Kolb also receives some talk at number three. Kolb has all the skills to develop into a quality NFL quarterback, but will need to adjust to an NFL playbook as he didn't play in a pro-style offense at Houston.

Trent Edwards is the sleeper candidate right now. He has flown under the radar because Stanford has been so bad, but he has the skills and the toughness to project to the next level. He is a talented pocket passer, has good size, and shows the ability to stand in the pocket and deliver the football with accuracy.

Troy Smith has seen his stock really fall since his awful BCS showing and sub-par Senior Bowl. Some still consider him the 3rd best QB, but those who do are becoming scarce.

Other names mentioned at number three are John Beck, BYU and Matt Moore, Oregon State.

Quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl

Fox Sports has a huge article on Senior Bowl week. Including an in-depth look at the quarterbacks. Here are some of the comments:

Drew Stanton - ...he's back and playing well enough to be a late first-round prospect.

Troy Smith - His arm has been average and the height issue has been a factor.

Chris Leak - He's been rock solid this week showing he can be deadly accurate on the short-to-midrange throws.

Kevin Kolb - He's big, mobile, through not a runner, and has the arm.

Jordan Palmer - great arm, lousy decision maker

Tyler Palko - this week showed he can't throw at an NFL level

Stanton impressive during 2nd day reports that Michigan State quarterback Drew Stanton impressed teams during this morning's practice.

Stanton displayed accuracy, zip and arm strength in his throws, and combined with his protypical NFL QB size (6- 3, 235) he was surrounded by scouts from at least five NFL teams as the morning workouts were completed. Among the teams expressing interest in Stanton were the Chiefs, the Patriots, the Vikings and the Texans.

Stanton had a disappointing senior season and his draft stock has suffered. Prior to the 2006 season many scouts felt he could be a first rounder. A great senior bowl week could raise his stock and position him as the number three quarterback behind Jamarcus Russell and Brady Quinn.

No More Excuses for Losman, Bills Could Draft QB

The Buffalo News says it's time to stop making excuses for Losman and look for a QB in the draft. Brady Quinn would be the choice if available at the Bills pick, however chance are he'll be gone by then. Brian Brohm or Drew Stanton are also possibilities.
