So what if Zeke is a rookie? And they didn't draft him #4 overall, given that he's a prototype 3-down back, to have him in a timeshare with Morris or McFadden. Behind that line, coupled with his skills as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker, there's no way he should fall past the first round.
@Walter I don't see how you think Fitz is "fine" there, given the fact you pointed out Palmer's diminishing arm strength and generally not liking older players. I get he's produced with awful QBs and they're not running him deep anymore, but even so, the point you made about AP apply even more to Fitz. Bad pick
These are the school's prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft by status * - denotes 2014 prospect ** - denotes 2015 prospect.

Matt Scott, QB, Arizona
Height: 6-3. Weight: 196. Projected 40 Time: 4.77. Projected Round (2013): 4-6. 2/16/13: Scott was previously a backup to Nick Foles, but used the 2012 season to make a statement that he is pro prospect in his own right. Scott showed nice dual-threat ability as a runner and passer this year. The senior completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,620 yards with 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He also ran for 632 yards (506 net) with six touchdowns.
Scott has some nice developmental talent. He had a quality performance at the East-West Shrine and looks like a nice player to groom as a backup.
Dan Buckner, WR, Arizona
Height: 6-4. Weight: 215. Projected 40 Time: 4.59. Projected Round (2013): 6-7. 2/16/13: Buckner played pretty well this year, making 59 receptions for 741 yards and five touchdowns.
8/17/12: Buckner was the complement to Juron Criner but was still was a solid contributor in 2011. Buckner hauled in 42 passes for 606 yards and two touchdowns.
It could be a challenging senior season with Arizona breaking in a new quarterback. Nick Foles threw the ball a lot the past few years and the passing game will probably be decreased this year.
