Camp Wentz- Starts here.

Recommended Posts

Nah I'm not an official member, just keeping the prospects separate. I know BB is the founder of Camp Goff. I will say Wentz interviews well- enthusiastic to say the least. :)

I'll stake my claim to being the founder and President of camp Wentz. I think he's the better overall prospect with a greater ceiling.

"greater ceiling" = "not as ready"...

 

At least that's what my decoder ring comes up with...

Gip, I don't think you were around for the great Camp wars in 1999. It's been resurrected, since it's odds on we're going to take a quarterback. I founded Camp Couch, one of my few mistakes. It was all in good fun. No, it's not a man crush sort of thing- it's just stating your opinion of who the Browns should draft until the real pick comes out the end of April.

 

You ain't seen nothing yet.

Yup- one season and change, suspect competition. Fragile? The dissection will begin shortly. :)

I was a member of the board, but I did not post at that time....staying mainly with the AOL Board. I guess I just got used to hammering Steeler fans over there, until they kicked me off for it. I came in at the tail end of the DA/Quinn debacle.

 

And, honestly, I always hate these QB battles. The really DO remind of of the Twilight shit.....teenage chicks arguing over the biggest romantic idols......75% of whom turn out to be gay.

 

And that is what I think about these Camp QBs: they are gay. (in the non-homosexual...non having a good time interpretation of gay...i.e...they are lame.

Goff hasn't had a chance to get everybody slobbering over a few practice throws yet - when he does maybe I'll start camp Goff.

 

Probably no news til really March or so.

No exactly. I feel they're almost equal prospects of the moment. However I do believe Wentz will ultimately be the better finished product.

Neither qb is worth a top 5 pick.

Sorry-Camp Bosa needs it's own thread too. QB infatuated Browns fans are a dime a dozen. :lol:

 

Give D a little love.

I'll go ahead right now and put on record that I don't think any QB is worth the #2 pick, and will be very disappointed if the Browns reach yet again.

 

Now if they are able to trade back to say 10 - 15 and take one of the top 2/3 QB prospects, then I'm OK with that..... I'll revisit this post come draft night's conclusion.

I was looking at draft order + needs + draft prospects and trying to figure out what team would want to trade up to No. 2, and why would they need to.

 

Haven't been able to come up with a scenario that nets the Browns a trade down

Long way to go in the process to start dreamin up scenarios. Who knows how these prospects will look come April.

I'm taking this to mean that you don't see a franchise guy in this draft. if the Browns can land the a guy who can put an end to names being added to the infamous jersey for 10+ years he's worth the entire draft.

 

I've taken the "find your qb later" camp before, but if the FO believes there is a franchise qb in this group (as I do) they need to do whatever it takes.

 

We've wasted nearly a decade of having the best LT in the league because he never had anyone worth protecting, time to fix that...

And who is this franchise QB that you think the Browns should take in this draft?

I honestly don't know if there is a "franchise QB" in this draft, but I'm hoping either Goff or Wentz (or Lynch) scores high enough to warrant the second pick. I'm also hoping our talent gurus are smart enough to figure it all out. The worst thing to happen would be for us to pick a QB just because we need one. Wentz and Goff both have talented physical attributes, and they also appear intelligent. I want to say that Wenzt has something like a 4.0.

tia, respect the hell out of your football opinions, but just don't see this one. Everything I see says that between his football ears Wentz is not close to Goff and that Goff is "there".

 

And every failure at QB we have suffered since "the reconstruction" has been between the ears. I'm not willing to take that chance again.

Ultimately depends upon how many elite prospects are in the draft and the distance between them and the 2nd best prospects for a given position, doesn't it?

 

Take Bosa, the most popular "elite" around here who plays at a high-value position. What matters as much or more than whether he really is elite or not is how far Buckner is behind him. If Buckner is close and Bosa goes #1 to TN, then the #2's value jumps immediately as the next best DE (Dodd?) is well behind.

 

The other non-QB that jumps at me is Jack at OLB. Due to size questions I still have trouble seeing a use that sets his value high, but if he rises as high as some have him he becomes a very valuable commodity due to Smith's knee.

 

Other candidates may emerge from OT and CB, but to my eye there are too many very good candidates at these positions for anything less than generationally elite prospects to separate themselves.

If we take Goff there's a very good chance in 2 years the fan base is screaming for another QB draft pick. I don't want the Browns to even sniff at a QB in the draft unless he's a guy that barring injury, could start day one his rookie year. Doesn't have to a world beater in his first season, but is good enough to start. Goff is not that.

Like any smart man, humility is a must. Just because I'm rather smitten with Wentz now doesn't mean I don't reserve the right to change my mind based upon things I see. What film I've seen between he and Goff is at an intermediate point. Once the season is over and there's more tape available, I'll dig into the meat and potatoes then. I'm sure I'll uncover more than what I've seen now.

 

It's highly possible I may be of a different mindset come April. However, I still feel its a weak QB class and if Bosa is there, it'll be awfully hard for me to pass up on that.

 

As for Wentz having it between the ears - I like the 'lightbulb' phrase. I don't necessarily believe one day the light go goes on from an off position. I believe that light will grow brighter where some may consider it 'dim'.

 

edit: Remember how I felt about Grayson last year until you pointed me to some film of Petty and told me to take a look? I was rather on the fence about the two of them after that. Considering I was guns blazing for feeling Grayson was an underrated, potential gem to cooling off and seeing other options. Still a long ways to go before the draft. Let us hope our new front office can take a similar mentality.

This is the biggest reason I'm in Camp Goff.

 

Not to mention you see issues with timing and reads (or lack thereof) against FCS competition. Getting the internal clock right for the much faster paced NFL is going to be a hard transition to make when you don't have the internal clock right when you play for the "Alabama of the FCS" Likewise if he's locking on and not making that many reads against FCS defenses - nobody knows how well he'll do reading an NFL defense. The basic, slow senior bowl practice pretty much shows his struggles there - and that's a hell of a lot easier than learning to do it on NFL gameday.

 

I'll take the mental over physical every time - and it's not like Goff is a midget who is too weak to make the throws. As far as I can tell he's able to make all the throws he needs to.

Points taken, tia...

 

BION I've tried to stay reserved with Goff, but everything I've looked at just keeps pulling me deeper into his corner.

 

Except for that Farve bit, yeah... and the kid comes across even better on video.

I love the Favre bit, personally. But I am also a gigantic Favre fan and always have been, so that's probably why.

 

Also, for the record: https://twitter.com/nfldraftscout/status/692744502583390209

 

Rumor has it that Wentz was valued rather highly when Farmer was in the building...and it's the same scouting department.... (It's silly season, so everything should be taken with a grain of salt. But it's still interesting to me nonetheless.)

 

As for the Goff/Wentz debate - I don't think we could go wrong with either of them. It's not one or the other for me. I just value Wentz's potential + size + athleticism combo more than I value Goff's deep ball accuracy + read and fire + seemingly more refined mental game. Personally, I don't see Wentz locking on to his primary read more than I see it in any other prospect, so I'm not sure about that point.

 

I think there are a lot of logical fallacies flying around that because Wentz is more athletic, he is less mentally gifted. Or because Goff lacks in athleticism, he is inherently more of a technician. Neither of which is exactly the truth whatsoever, and I think they are being propagated by people who aren't watching any tape.

 

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but a lack of helmet movement (which I don't necessarily see either) doesn't mean a lack of progression or an incapability of going through reads. Part of the reason I like Wentz is that NDSU runs a pro-style system, but implements a number of different concepts from varying offenses. One concept they run is the triangle read, and not only on rollouts.

In the JSU game, for example - first drive, it's 3rd and 9 and Wentz picks up 11 to what is seemingly just his first read. However, if you take a look, they are flooding that quarter of the field - a common aspect in spread offenses, especially with accurate quarterbacks. X and Y receivers smoke out the man coverage with fly routes, while Z runs a deep out past the marker and the backside TE runs across on a delayed deep drag as a last ditch effort to fill any vacated zone. All four of his options are in his field of vision, all four options serve a different purpose, yet there's no apparent "progression". His read is dependent on the coverage by the defense, not on any actual progression of routes. Man coverage - fly, then out, then the flood. Zone coverage - the inside fly, then the drag.

 

There's multiple examples of this exact concept run by NDSU, which I believe is giving off the impression that Wentz "locks on" to his primary read - when that's not necessarily the case. Is he as polished as Goff...no. But that in no way means he's less cerebral, nor does it mean he'll be a worse pro.

I think it's all a smokescreen in order to devalue the #1 pick, giving teams like Dallas the false idea that they can get Goff @ #4.

... and I am on record as not being a Favre fan. That said, I cannot say watching Wentz brings Favre to mind so his fav QB matters about as much as his favorite color.

 

The link is dead. I get a "Sorry, that page doesn't exist" message.

 

Totally agree on the independence of variables... these are not Xbox QBs with sliders and only so many attribute points to distribute.

 

Also acknowledge the limitations in inferring reads/progressions or lack thereof in a broadcast tape. My feel is based in part on the number of forced throws when any duress was minimal. I'll look for the play you detailed next session.
