As for Kizer being picked first from 1-5 Notre Dame.. remember the last QB picked high from a losing program (at the time) based on skill level was Jake Locker.. look how that turned out. Sure some folks say "it's the team around him that's awful" Well unless the team he goes to is Loaded with talent (and if it's a top 10 pick, that's really not the case) then he's going to be going to an awful team in the NFL too. Kizer probably needs to stay another year, sure he may go #1 as mocked, but he is more likely a sure bet to Bust as someone with a lower skill set from a winning program.
The Ravens send the Chargers their 1st and 3rd rd picks this yr and next for their 1st rd pick
The Cowboys send QB Romo to the Jest for their 2nd rd pick
The Dolphins sned QB Tanneyhill to the 49ers for their 2nd rd pick
The Bears send QB Cutler to the Dolphins for their 2nd rd pick
These are the school's prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft by status * - denotes 2014 prospect ** - denotes 2015 prospect.

Alex Carder, QB, Western Michigan
Height: 6-2. Weight: 224. Projected 40 Time: 4.61. Projected Round (2013): 6-FA. 2/16/13: Carder completed 68 percent of his passes this year for 1,652 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He didn't have a good game against Illinois in the season opener, but the redshirt senior got no help from his offensive line and wide receivers. Carder really missed former No. 1 receiver Jordan White. Carder missed five games with a finger injury on his throwing hand.
Carder didn't impress at the East-West Shrine.
8/16/12: Carder has been a prolific passer for Western Michigan and was a 2011 Second-Team All-MAC performer as a junior. He lit up Purdue in his bowl game, completing 31-of-57 passes for 439 yards and three touchdowns.
Carder played well against Illinois and Michigan as well. Against Connecticut, he completed 37-of-51 passes for 479 yards with five touchdowns and zero interceptions, carrying the Broncos to a road win over the Huskies.
Carder completed 66 percent of his passes for 3,873 yards with 31 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 2011. He has a nice arm and is a good decision-maker. His senior season will be more difficult without star wide receiver Jordan White.
Carder completed 63 percent of his throws in 2010 for 3,334 yards with 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He has been extremely efficient for Western Michigan.
