    Highly mobile QBs

    It would seem our Gm has an eye of these types, if there is any truth to the rumors we have interest in both Vick and/or Johnson.

    I ask you guys, what QBs in the draft play this style using high mobility to make plays along with there arm,and in what rounds do you think they will go.

    Carriker this is the year!

    Re: Highly mobile QBs

    A lot of them actually have good mobility. Starting on this list, you're probably seeing guys start from the 3rd (imo) all the way through --> undrafted. Mostly middle round guys. If someone like McCoy, Tebow, LeFevour gets picked up before the 3rd, well imo, that's too early.

    First there is Colt McCoy. Leading rusher on the Longhorns last year, 2nd leading rusher this year. Not so much by design as it was by default. Their spread offense and lack of a running attack really caused this to happen, along with some other things. He has some wheels though.

    An even better runner imo is Dan LeFevour. He seems to want to bring it down and take off with it a little more often than McCoy did on the college level. That might need some work. He can definitely move his feet though and can make people miss in the open field. Has some quicks too.

    Jarrett Brown is another guy who can move if needed to. He is actually pretty elusive in the pocket as well and has a big arm. He took over where Pat White left off last year at WVU but he's a much different talent all the same. Especially when it comes to body type. He's one of the bigger guys on this list.

    Can't make a post about mobile QB's without Tim Tebow. His story shouldn't be new though. Much different mobile runner than the rest listed however. Not going to make guys miss in the open field. Probably won't be very effective at all in anything at the next level that's not short yardage.

    John Skelton is huge but surprisingly mobile in the pocket. He was able to move around and buy some time at Fordham to get plays to develop. He wasn't shy about taking the ball down and picking up some yardage with his feet either. Much like Tebow though I expect this to get minimized at the next level.

    Darryl Clark. Not the same kind of runner as a lot of other guys on this list. However he has displayed the ability to be pretty mobile. He has good feet. He's light on them and not afraid to take it to the end zone if nothing else has opened up.

    Re: Highly mobile QBs

    What proof do we have the GM covets mobility in a QB? Other than internet rumors of course. This reminds me of last summer when people kept saying Spags was going to run the west coast offense even though he kept saying he was going to be a run pounding offense. Since it was on the internet he was going to run the WC offense, it obviously must be true.
