Bray -- Stafford.
Barkley -- Schaub
Murray -- Dalton
Wilson -- Locker
Thomas -- An extremely raw Big Ben. Maybe some combo of Ben and Newton. Clearly has some speed that Ben doesn't have but is an even less polished passer than Newton. Freeman perhaps? Yeah, that seems fair - Josh Freeman with Big Ben upside. Ultimately I'll probably have him moved ahead of Wilson by next week, he's just so damn raw.
Manuel -- Newton. It's lazy, it's predictable, but it's what I see. Unfortunately the 2nd best comp I can come up with is Vick. He's really something of a hybrid of the two - not as good a thrower as Newton, not as explosive an athlete as Vick. Really, he's probably closer to Vick than he is to Newton.
Glennon -- Probably nothing, but Joe Flacco is his upside in my world.
Jones -- Kyle Boller
i made the same geno-rodgers comparison in sac's thread...i mean, it's crazy of course as rodgers is awesome...but Smith is well rounded in the same way
as for Bray, I see Cutler...the promise and the dick faced douche-lord
