      Aston was a linebacker before he went to Pitt and played FB. Here’s to hoping he can make a transition back to linebacker!

          Most years we go into camp with 4 QBs. 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th stringers. Grayson IMO is the odd man out here. I'd also guess that given the number of QBs that we now have that Hogan has likely not progressed as well as wed have liked.

          Flacco
          Lock
          Rypien/Hogan

          Those are the order I expect to see the depth chart land after the 1st or second PS game.

                  Agreed. I see him as a more polished quarterback then Lock from a mental stand point, but obviously the physical ability isn't on the same level. I would imagine it would be like watching Keenum and Kelly warm up a season ago, Kelly dwarfed him in terms of arm talent and natural throwing ability. Too bad his head was all over the shop because he is a better prospect than Lock in my opinion.

                      I doubt Hogan will be #2.

                        I personally wouldn't waste a rep on Kevin Hogan, he should be released right now. I don't believe in developing a young quarterback from the sideline, I once did, but I think young quarterbacks need to play to get better. Now we have Lock, I would prefer Flacco to just be gone, as much as I like the move to get him. That isn't the reality though, and Flacco is our quarterback, but every other rep that doesn't go to him, I want Lock taking it. I like Rypien also, I think he is more polished than Lock and primed to be a backup quarterback long term in the NFL, but Lock needs as many reps as he can get from the sideline in my opinion.

                          I think Grayson is gone. Hogan & Rypien would need to compete.

                          As per your other comment I'd say Trevor did alright for us after sitting behind Manning and Brock for a few years. That is just an example on our team. I'd also say that there are two current NFL superstars who'd begrudgingly disagree with you as well (Tom Brady & Aaron Rodgers). Both sat behind older QBs and then stepped in and have won SBs. In the more modern of times one could argue that Patrick Mahomes is where he is now as a result of sitting behind Alex Smith.

                          I'd also argue that it is more important than EVER to have a true succession plan with a veteran in place and a young guy behind him. The professional players, especially on defense, are just soo much better than in college. Fronts, disguises and speed are all factors. In the NFL it is typically more important to play under center which MANY young QBs in college do not do or don't do much. So taking those reps in practice and in the off-season is key. As is going over the mental reps while shadowing the starter.

                            Hogan and Grayson get a huge "meh" from me so I don't disagree with you there, but Lock really does need some time. He needs a lot of coaching and he's going to have to be able to digest what he's shown. The QB2 spot is about as high on the depth chart as he should be for at least a season and that's if everything works out well. He's got some work to do. That's why he was available where we drafted him.

                                I am really impressed with this draft. Round 2 was brilliant. This article cheered me up:
