Henne could take this team to the playoffs. Gabbert could take us to the number 1 pick next season. We need to draft a center also.
No, Henne can really do no such thing. He is just not that good. He has been the same 'mediocre at best' QB his entire career on teams with more talent.

Yea, the guy really is garbage. I don't expect him to be on the opening day roster. His career has peaked at pretty decent backup.

Plus anyway, only a handful of teams even need QBs, so it's not like 32 teams chose to pass on him when thy had a need.


The football gods have handed us something great in the way of a first round QB being available at 33. Whether we cash in on that via drafting him or trading the pick for a bunch of picks, I don't know. But it's amazing that he's there.


You sound like B.G. fans that say he could improve in the same light ah la Eli, Troy ect. Its not a sure thing that Geno is going to be the next Aaron, Brady, or Russell for that matter so don't get ahead of yourself.
I never said it was a sure thing, but let's not act like NFL teams don't miss on players all the time and take their assessments as gospel.

Division rival here, dropping in to say I think you guys made the right decision. Keep in mind, he's very young too, only a junior. Monroe/Joeckel combo will be great for any QB/RB. Who are you guys hoping for at the top of round 2? I would imagine there are plenty of trade offers coming your way too with a couple of coveted prospects who have fallen.

It has to be a defender.

My guess would be one of the safeties or a linebacker. Teo or the guy from Kansas State.

Quote:
Here’s Bruce Matthews on Joeckel:

“Him and Eric Fisher are very similar as far as I’m concerned. They’re both big, really elite athletes at the position. I liked Joeckel better, obviously I know the kind of kid he is. He and Jake compete all the time in everything -- working out, running. What I liked about Joeckel more I think was obviously the competition level.

“(Jon Gruden) said he didn’t think he was tough enough, but I liked the way Joeckel finishes.

"He’ll be fine on the right. Eugene Monroe is a very good player. They have two very talented tackles, at least potential wise. Definitely start him on the right, I would think. It was like Jake and Luke at A&M. Luke got there first, so he was the left tackle and Jake came on in summer. He’ll be fine at either one.

“The same qualities that make you a good left tackle will make you a good right tackle. Typically people realize, ‘Hey, we can sacrifice a little bit of athleticism at the right tackle by typically having the tight end to that size we can formation to a better matchup.’

“Obviously there was a lot of buzz saying he would be the first guy. I mean, jeez, I can’t argue with either of those guys, if Luke went first or Fisher.

“Luke’s a good player, hard worker. He’ll do it right.”

Joeckel says he's worked on playing right tackle before this. He says it adds another tool
