    I've seen Omar predicted as anywhere from a 1st to 4th rounder. He's a guy that I'd hope would be a steal if he falls to the 3rd (if we get one) or 4th.

    Mike Carlson, an NFL guy for Europe, put it best.

    "McNabb scrambling is an elite QB. McNabb without is just good."

    I totally agree with bobo on this one. I believe Omar Jacobs has equal or more upside that Vince Young. He could be a true QB steal, possibly the biggest since Brady, and I'd like to think we were the team who got that steal.

    Ive seen him play in person, and I was just not impressed. I may be wrong, but I do not see him as our Franchise QB. Just my opinion....dont get upset with me for it.

    well, Omar is hardly a scrambling QB
    he only rushed for 62 yards this year
    and only 300 last year, the year he threw for 4002 yds / 41 td's

    hell, Vince ran for 200 against USC in the Rose Bowl alone

    From what I saw of Omar, he can run. He's not like a Vick runner, but probably inline with McNair's running skills. He had an excellent night passing.

    No matter who TURNS OUT to be the best QB in the draft doesn't matter. The point is if we can get Leinart or Young at #3 we will in all likelihood do it. If we get Bush, then we can consider trading up for Cutler or going after Jacobs. Chances are no other QB gets on the radar cuz we won't be needing one by then. Also, I can see 4 QBs going in round one - Leinart, Young, Cutler, Jacobs.

    Teams who could take a QB -

    Houston
    New Orleans
    Tennessee
    NYJ
    Baltimore
    Arizona
    Miami
    Detroit
    Washington

    And I could be missing some.

    Why I want the Titans to take Omar and not a QB with the 1st pick is because of San Diego. They didn't take Vick, and ended up with the best all-round QB in the league, and a good QB (okay he was dissapointing for 3 years but now he's pretty good). I'd rather the Titans get the equivalant of 2 1st round picks (Omar has that upside), and get someone like AJ Hawk. Hell the PERFECT draft would be to trade down, get someone like DeAngelo Williams; get a LB AND Omar.

    I wouldn't complain. Except I think Omar doesn't last mid-2nd with a good combine/Senior Bowl showing.

    He only makes it a better draft. If the Titans took him in the second after drafting an instant starter in the first I'd be happy with that.
