I'm couple weeks ago for the NFL draft Hurd told the draft and a big business decision to be made here long term consequences do you pick -- -- -- number one or Robert Griffin.
Our next guest knows a thing or two about quarterbacks from professional football various he's in the whole payment quarterback Warren men wide.
-- -- -- -- You know you are -- you go wrong with either world these guys.
The -- close as far as.
The way they've been compared to each other did they definitely have a different dynamic in the way they play the game especially -- G three because of -- speed and the dynamic of that.
But they're both very solid -- they both can do everything you want your quarterback to be able to do they both.
Throw the baldor will the lot accuracy can't have.
How would take Andrew look with the first pick -- -- he's the guy that is by the most pro already.
To start day one of next football season because it comes -- pros sell off princely doesn't have a lot of changeover doing -- -- work in this fundamentals and things like that but again with RG three you can't go wrong with -- it's going to be a very dynamic players -- Cults have gone through the cycle -- the business decision because you think about back in 1998 when the colts.
To -- many -- had a real debate that should take manic or you should you take Ryan -- right.
And if they took Ryan leaf who were off didn't work out let's put it that way that would be -- did -- did you know they lost that would have lost a lot of money.
That they made have demanding as a quarterback and do his -- that it.
Well I have a lot more is put into.
With the character of a player today -- probably was 1415 years ago and that's something that you know filled in all the scouting people really looking into the background of the -- his family background the things that he's done in his life.
Those things cannot transfer our -- what type of player that guy's gonna be off the fuel was relevant samples of some of the things that got rightly from the in the trouble.
Everybody had no question about his athletic ability think they can measure that now.
I really do I really look you look at RG three you look at it Andrew look their family Bagram.
I'll overlook resort Andrew's dad looked teammate -- -- -- a very solid got.
-- you look at the the the Griffin family their military family come from a very strong backgrounds of both of these guys.
Come up from from a good stock so I think they're gonna will be very solid citizens as what was great football.
And what about the personality and because that goes to what you're talking about the qualitative -- in the background the -- -- in the market ability.
Of these two men were not critical is that it.
It's very critical expressed -- where and when marketers are looking at these guys is as.
And franchise faces.
You've got big business out there the wants to maybe put these guys spokespeople -- these guys are both excellent students -- than at the top of their class to both graduated.
They're both great speakers so there eloquent as far as how they present themselves so they have everything that it takes to go along would be out of leadership position -- quarterback to be very marketable.
You're right about and they really are both emerge really well spoke about a way messiness big breaking sports story at the bottom of the screen at the owner of the -- Tom Benson apparently -- to Forbes is gonna buy up.
The the hornets of New Orleans 330 plus million dollars which is kind of interest think you can either comment on that the other thing I was thinking with this whole discussion we're having is your own personal story.
Somebody missed something on you know you're all Famer but yet to go to Canada to -- go straight to the NFL have immediate success -- they didn't.
Make sure you right do you think it would have been different now if you're coming out of school.
No question about -- -- the way the league looks at it now there's there's about the stereo -- that there was back in those days about African American quarterbacks because we've got so much success of the position.
Now we've come over gotten -- all those moves and now they don't care what color your -- can help a franchise win.
They're gonna they're gonna pick your -- look at.
Cam Newton last year the number one overall Paper or Michael Vick.
The number one overall pick what he came out he really doesn't matter if you can play the game and play at a high level -- -- -- in the draft.
Working with candidate and what is the and of course varies from player to player was the biggest missing piece.
For quarterback coming out of college going in the -- with such high expectations.
Just experienced person -- you just haven't been in the professional game everybody at the personal level is good so when you come out of college or might be two or three goes on a college team that are -- -- -- -- in the NFL -- in the when you get to the -- everybody's -- so you've got guys and bitterly ten years or whatever a lot of experience leaders have to gain that experience as a young player.
And a lot of times -- -- Cam Newton or whatever rules the top of the draft.
Doesn't go to a very good football team that's whether draft to decide they are so they have to come a bill with that team and -- growing pains and that's what happens to a lot of young quarterback.
Well it's good thank you -- it's -- that we've gotten better measuring just about everything it's also good -- proposals stereotypes that -- you went up.
I'm so glad they've done that in -- All the rules because of the plan right now orbiter for thank you -- or it is great to see you talk -- -- and that's a great Segway engineers.
