Default If Mike Vick stayed for Sr. year. Vick or Palmer no. 1?

Both guys were former #1 overall picks in their respective draft classes. The question is, which would go 1st overall if Vick stayed for his senior year.?Carson Palmer had a monster year that year also.

Carson had no flaws as a prospect, he was a QB machine. The only knock was that he hadn't been consistent throughout his entire collegiate career, but the finished product was ready for battle. Vick had knocks on accuracy and whether or not he could make the transition (reasons the SD Chargers had traded down instead of picking him the year before), Carson was the ultimate safe bet.

Obviously Vick's upside is unparalleled (zomg Elway poll??) but I think ultimately Carson would be the pick.

Palmer probably would of went #1. A traditional QB with great size, crazy arm and some very nice measurables. Teams would of seen him as the safer pick.

Depends on which team was picking. If it were still the Bengals, I'd have to guess Palmer, since it's been proven that they already liked him enough to spend the #1 overall on him. Just going on odds there.

But when you think about how big a star Vick would have become over the course of the ensuing two years....wow. I'd say a team like the Bengals would probably have went for him.

But, maybe more tape wouldn't necessarily have been a good thing. Who knows how he would have developed.

If I were forced to put money on it and then go back in a time machine to find out, I'd say Vick. But it would depend on who was picking.

One thing's for certain: They'd both have been selected before Carr and Harrington in '02.

Palmer would have been the safer pick, but Vicks potential was/is unreal. I think that Palmer would be the pick though.He just had so few flaws.

Obviously it depends on the franchise picking but I think Vick would have been the pick. He had an absolutely incredible upside, he was a one of a kind prospect and offered a unique skillset.

It would of been Mike Vick. The dude was a freak of an athlete. Was fast and had moves like a Running Back and had a cannon for an arm.

Vick, jail time, dog fighting, the Bengals.

I agree with the bold statement. You just never know what coach or GM would've preferred. Of course it's easy to look at their careers and think Carson all the way, but there just isn't a certainty with the future. Some GM might have preferred Vick's potential over Carson's ability, and they could've pulled that trigger based on that.

I'm going to have to go against the grain on this one. I think Vick's potential was the greatest we've ever seen out of a QB. I think Vick's potential would tempt GMs past picking Palmer. All this being said, I liked Palmer better as a prospect. Vick had immense potential, but Palmer was nearly everything you'd ever want out of a QB prospect.

I don't think this really works since Leinart has a horrid arm and Vince Young, while athletic, isn't even close to the athlete that Vick is/was.

If Oakland had the #1 overall pick, it would be Vick; If any other NFL team had the choice, it'd be Palmer.

Anyone saying it would of been Palmer just doesn't remember Vick coming out of College and how insanely good he was and was going to be in the NFL.

They also may be forgetting that we're not talking about Vick as a RS Soph. He'd have had 2 full years to develop further and would have been one of the biggest stars in the history of CFB, assuming he stayed healthy.

The same can be said of Palmer...he was insane is senior year and a borderline flawless prospect.

Vick woulda been amazing if he had stayed, but I think Palmer was a much more prototypical QB, which is what most teams look for.

Not to say that the comparison is valid, but it slightly evens out. Vick > Young, Palmer > Leinart.

I wish I couldve seen Palmer and Vick as prospects. They must have been insane.

Vick woulda been amazing if he had stayed, but I think Palmer was a much more prototypical QB, which is what most teams look for.
But Vick is an obvious exception to the rule, and he already proved that by going first overall as a RS Soph. One of the best athletes to ever enter the draft is tough for a lot of teams to pass on.

Vick especially. That was a crazy offseason. My Bolts had the number 1 pick and were coming off the year of Leaf, 1-15. Grrrreat times. We got some halfback with a funny name instead.

If Mike Vick played another year of college football he probably would have won the Heisman, maybe competed for a national championship and the hype machine would have been at a level nobody has ever seen before. It would have been almost impossible to pass on him, but then again the Chargers went ahead and did just that
