I can't imagine that there's a team that can afford to draft this guy highly and let him sit while he matures and gains not only NFL experience, but gametime experience, period. He left school way too early, if not by choice.

I am a Hokie and I don't think that we have time to deal with an immature person such as Marcus. He needs special attention, we don't have time for that, we have time only to focus on the next championship.

Dependability is key. If you were a GM, coach, or personnel director, how would you like to be wondering each week whether or not Marcus Vick is going to end up in the papers due to a substance abuse suspension or a moving violation morphed into drug bust a la Michael Irvin or Claude Wroten?

He's a liability someone is going to be willing to take a risk on. Because that field of willing risk-takers is going to be so slim, the 4th round would be a best-case scenario for him.

Draft him late on the second day, if he's still there, and convert him to a wide receiver. He'll never be an NFL QB. He may be an outstanding wideout.

If he turns out to be a pain in the butt, see ya later...

Why draft him if we already know that's gonna be the case? Waste of time, waste of a pick, waste of money.

Because, we don't "know" that. And because, Gibbs has always been willing to gamble, or take on "projects" with second day picks. Marcus Vick may be a pain in the butt. He may be no more of a pain in the butt than John Riggins. Dexter Manley... Gary Clark. Gibbs can deal with that. If, in the process, he gets a dynamic, fast, possession receiver who gives the added dimension of a strong throwing arm... well... bonus!

The funny thing is I looked on page one of this thread and then page nine, and they all say the same thing! Anyways, forgive me for giving you people grief! To answer the question, first of all we already have a QB for the future and we have more pressing needs to address. Secondly, don't risk a pick on a guy like Marcus unless you absolutely need him (we don't) and are sure that he is going to turn out okay (we're not).

I tell you what...how about the Redskins take the money that Mini-Vick will ask for and use it to buy a nasty, mean old dog. Then let it bite us right in the tail. That way, we dont have to wonder when it would undoubtedly happen and we could move on sooner.

Good idea, Wingman. If we do that, we've only lost the money, not the pick. Seriously, we don't need to waste time trying to figure out who our next QB is. Let's develop what we have and see how it works out.

Erik Meyer (Eastern Washington) is the guy the skins need.
