i'd draft flacco ALOT. his footwork sucks, he isnt very mobile, sucks at taking snaps under center. the only thing he has is arm strength. and does the fact that he couldnt beat out tyler palko for the starting spot in pittsburgh mean anything.
Quote :

Joe Flacco, Delaware

Height/Weight: 6'6/232
College Experience: Fifth-year senior
Projected 40: 5.0
Comparison:Andrew Walter
2007 Statistics: 331-of-521 (63.5%), 4,263 Yds, 23 Tds, 5 Ints, 4 Rush Tds

Positives/Negatives: A classic dropback passer, Flacco has
possibly the strongest pure arm in the draft. His accuracy at Delaware
was solid, but Flacco faced weak D-IAA competition. He possesses
tremendous size and is hard to bring down. However, Flacco played in a
shotgun-heavy offense in college and struggled taking snaps from center
at the Senior Bowl. His footwork is poor, and he has a slow dropback.
Flacco also lacks any kind of mobility.

Lewin on Joe Flacco: Flacco's inability to beat out Tyler Palko
for a starting job at Pitt sends up an immediate red flag. He posted
good numbers in two seasons, but they still weren't on McNair or Chad Pennington's level. You want D-IAA guys to dominate like Josh Johnson. Flacco carries a lot of risk, and isn't worth a first-day pick.

Verdict: Flacco was behind Tyler Palko
on the Pittsburgh depth chart early in his college career. He
transferred to D-IAA Delaware, sat out the 2005 season, and began
starting in 2006. Flacco has some intriguing tools, but wasn't good
enough to beat out a quarterback that ultimately went undrafted and
likely doesn't have a career in the NFL. Using reason, the idea that
Flacco should be a second- or third-round draft pick is illogical. Flacco
is more of a second-day to late second-day prospect who should be
viewed as a project, not relied on to play within the next two seasons.

Flacco definitely has a cannon for an arm, but the competition he played against in college was less than stellar. I think the X factor for Flacco is going to be how well he will be able to read the NFL defenses, because he has all the physical tools to get it done. I see Flacco being drafted in the early third round.
