However, while there are major concerns about these prospects, expect as many as three to go in the first round, with so many desperate teams in need of a quarterback.
"There's a very natural ability in the throwing and if you don't have that, it's very hard to succeed in this league", Shanahan told beat writers after his introductory press conference.
Most draft experts believe Mitchell Trubisky will be the first quarterback selected.
But the 49ers, Bears, and Jets could all select the UNC product. Since we're only a few days away from the first round that makes a lot of sense. I don't see Thomas happening there, but the mock drafts continue to push that narrative.
Lynch bucked 49ers tradition on Monday by holding his pre-draft press conference inside the team's draft room, which past year was named in honor of former team executive John McVay. Sure, Bill Belichick could still end up showing the 2017 NFL Draft in the third-rounder at No. 72 overall pick, but don't doubt that the coach will have chances.
Shakespeare: Leicester future not in my hands…
It was a rare alarm for Atletico in the first half though as their ability to retain possession drew Leicester's sting. They'll be tough opponents in the semi-finals but I don't see any reason why they can not win it.
"I haven't been getting mixed reviews from scouts", Robinson said. I realize that there are those who disagree with this approach, but we are not in the business of angering our loyal viewers and I personally like the unspoiled nature of this event. He completed 63 percent of his passes last season and he seems to know how to drive the ball downfield - another trait Jackson wants in his quarterback.
With the high rate of pay going to the quarterbacks, you need players who can do many things.
Kaaya could sneak into Round 3, but I suspect it's more likely he ends up going in Round 4. The Niners aren't like the Houston Texans - a playoff-bound team exclusively lacking a signal-caller to get to the next level. Every first rounder since 2008 is still on the Texans' roster, and more than half are Pro Bowlers. Those mistakes shouldn't deter the Browns from selecting a QB early, but they are grim reminders that there are no givens. Swag Kelly has the arm teams want and the mobility. But in round 6, or so, he might be worth the risk.
If there is a run on quarterbacks in Round 1, the Browns may be forced to trade up from 33rd overall to get him. Teams have plenty of motivation to trade up, but there is one particular part of the Draft where there is an extra reason to move up. Rishard Matthews had a career year with a team-high 945 yards receiving and nine TDs, and rookie Tajae Sharpe added 41 catches for 522 yards.
The two sides met at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this spring, and general manager John Lynch hosted Watson at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara earlier in April, according to NFL Network (h/t Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News).
