Wow. Bleacherreport (bleh) had a 7 round mock and had Falk going 2nd round 48th overall.

They recognize the importance of having a QB that can win a game. With the addition of Gabbert and now Faulk. Hopefully we can win a game and look like a NFL offense if Marcus misses. Unlike Miami.

I have to think that if we were willing to use a pick on him in a draft where we only had 4, he is pretty much a lock to make the roster as the 3rd QB.

Also, got around to watching a highlight video. They have the most annoying touchdown call/celebration in football.

He was the 47th ranked player in my Top 50 and third ranked QB overall. Either I have no clue what I'm looking at, or you guys might just have got a good one.

Tom Brady: 199th overall

Luke Falk: 199th overall

Really like this pick. I feel like Falk is coming into the perfect situation. There will be no pressure on him so he can just sit and learn. Give him a few years and hopefully we have a Nick Foles/Matt Schaub type player that we can either trade for a pick down the road, or heaven forbid something happen to MM, we are in a good spot.

If Voch's analysis is right, he's pretty similar to Mariota in terms of throwing mechanics coming out of the draft. Really good on touch passes, can have issues at times with pressure(Mariota's issues weren't quite as noticed because he has the mobility to get away, where Faulk doesn't), and Mariota's issues with pressure have steadily gotten better since his rookie year. Much better at getting rid of the ball instead of taking the sack, taking the hit and still making the throw, etc, instead of just ducking away.

I mean there's obviously reasons Falk fell to pick 199, beyond even the issues with pressure, but he has the arm talent to make it.

LaFleur will develop him into a starting QB.

Truth is, I believe if LaFleur turn Mariota into a MVP caliber QB this season, he’s 1 & done here at TN

The way the NFL is I expect that too. My biggest hope is if Marcus does take the next step in this system that the Titans keep this system in tact some how and find an assistant or who ever that can run this system because this is Mariotas 3rd HC and 3rd OC I believe so I really don’t want to see him having to keep changing things up

The only HC interview he's had was with us. He's never called plays, and even if he did have a magical year I'd still be surprised to see him be one and done unless we win the SB (in which case I'd gladly take a quick LaFleur departure). 

Best hope is that he is here for 2 or 3 (god, even 4 if we were lucky and things are going well), and that maybe he turns Falk into a tradeable asset or at least feasible back-up. Most likely he'll never be more than a guy but holding out hope we got lucky. Of active guys starting or competing to start, outside the first 3 rounds it's really Tom Brady and Tyrod Taylor. So odds are pretty low Falk does anything.
