Washington QB Stanbeck is 6'3 216lbs and when his foot was healthy ran a 4.45 forty....he has screws in his foot now..but is he worth a look as a big reciever/3rd QB?

He is supposed to have great character and work ethic...and in the interview I read he said that he would like to play QB but is willing to play wherever he is needed. He specifically mentioned a Randle El type of role.

With the bad foot and the potential value..I find Stanback pretty interesting

i think a slash player has always been important to the steelers (kordell helped in our 95 season and el helped in 05) i still think if we wouldve traded most of our 2nd day picks last year for michael robinson he would still make the team this year.

interesting indeed.

Exactly....match our thinking with picking up draft picks with getting the extra value of these type of players and we may not have the 2nd day like we did last year!!!

i hope not. colbert and cowher seemed to sleepwalk through day 2 last year. coming off a sb its obvious the 53 man roster was pretty much already set but i sure wish we woulda used some of those picks to manuver up for one player or added picks in the future.

I like the idea of that type of player, but I wonder if this is the guy, at the cost of a pick; not a regular receiver, and that screw in the foot might slow him down. I'd take a shot at him as a free agent.

I do love the way all these guys bloom with potential, though, seriously. This is one of the coolest time of the season, when every player is the missing piece.

I would rather spend our 5-7 round picks on high ceiling possibilities like Stanback whose limitations are based on an injury that should heal...and not from a lack of talent like our picks last year....I say spend a 5th and 6th round pick on the punter Daniel Sepulveda and Stanback and a 7th round pick on claiming the rights to Jeff Samardzija....

path to the draft on nfl network just highlighted him as a 2nd day prospect (pointing out the upside you established) and compared him to a bigger seneca wallace.

im pretty pissed at st. pierre for selling our playbook to the ravens and would just as soon see him cut (saves about $400,000 over a late round rookie). although st pierre is smart and im sure would sell new trade secrets to the bengals or browns but may be worth it.

Absolutely...

I also would rather take a few shots at small school players...

Hey a black quaterback, let's make him change positions.

:yawn:

If we drafted him, we'd need him at quaterback where we have an old man and a future insurance salesman backing up our "franchise" quaterback.

I dont think that everyone is assuming that he cant play QB because he is black...but rather most of the people in this thread have done their homework and know that Stanback is inaccurate as a passer...has bad timing..throws off the back foot...struggles to read defenses...and has poor fundamentals....
...also we are all aware that he DID play some WR in college and therefore his athletic ability transfers more easily to WR in the Pros than it does to QB.

He has averaged 7 TD's and 3 interceptions per year over his college career, completing 51.4 % of his passes ....I dont see him as a replacement for Charlie Batch anytime soon.

A good quaterback coach (which he did not have at Washington) could take his basic athletic ability and turn him into a good backup quaterback.

I'd rather draft an actual receiver than draft a project.

As the thread insinuated...Stanback might be worth taking a chance on in a late rounds due to A) His injury B) A needed change of position C) Athletic ability

any "reciever" who lasts until the sixth or seventh round...probably wouldnt be worth drafting...(Colston is the exception to the rule ...and nobody should be thinking that we will duplicate what the saint did last year.)

I'm not sure if we want to draft a player in order to "teach" him to be a QB after he played the position for 3+ years.

That being said..I agree with you that there is more to Stanback then most people see...and if we do draft him as a Qb...we have that Athletic ability to fall back on..so we can use him in some aspect.

I just don't like a spot on the active roster being taken by a guy we're trying to shoehorn into a position that we're already thin at. If he's picked with the idea of putting him on the practice squad for a season to see what he's got, that's ok.

But there's no way I want to see this kid anywhere near the active roster as a receiver next year.

I'm not sure if he will be ready at the beginning of next season...because of the injury....last I heard he still hadnt ran for anyone yet...(Which has GOT to hurt his stock)...since you are out that way....Have you heard anything about his recovery?

Negative. But getting sports info out of Seattle is like getting porn out of Iran.

The only football news that comes out of Seattle..inevitably has the words "If only"....and "Holmgen" attached to it.

I tried to have sympathy for Seattle after the Super Bowl, but it's so damn hard to do! Those fans up there are some of the most arrogant people I've ever met. I work with some people from the Seattle area and I still marvel at the level of disdain they have for almost every other area in the US.

i like that idea of changing Stanback to a WR but i like the idea of claming the right to jeff samardzija in the 7th round if no ones thinking the same thing. i think he is going to make a good Pitcher in the MLB but i think he would make an even better receiver.

I'm not interested in a possesion receiver with a bad attitude.

I did. I don't like his attitude on the field. The way he acted in the Sugar Bowl was downright embrasasing.
