Confusing pick when DTR felt like a much better match.

I know nothing about him. Honestly haven't looked.

I like DTR better but what do I know. Will have to do a bit of research.
I know nothing about Tune

I do know l was in favor of picking DTR since he is a mobile QB and would fit in the same type game plan as KM if he had to fill in

I guess you didn’t see my post afterward. Someone on SiriusXM obviously misspoke me & my wife heard exactly what they said.

And no I don’t appreciate the drunk insult you thru out. BS
I removed the drunk part. I apologize for that.

I did not see your follow up post and apparently many others didn't either.

I actually kinda like the potential. Cards needed a better backup QB. For those preferring DTR, I think there’s been rumors of him being a bit of a head case and bad teammate. That would scare me off.

Is that prevailing thought that the 4th rd pick from UCLA will play Center?

I haven't heard this

Maybe why we picked Tune

Coaching staff and FO are wanting high character players

Well we do need someone for the time in between McCoy getting murdered and Kyler Murray returning - I'm guessing Tune will start about 7 or 8 games this season lol
Has McCoy started more than a few games without injury? Too injury prone to count on him, much like KM.

10. CLAYTON TUNE | Houston 6024 | 220 lbs. | 5SR Carrollton, Texas (Hebron) 3/23/1999 (age 24.09) #3 BACKGROUND: John “Clayton” Tune, the youngest child in his family, grew up in Celina, where he started playing quarterback at the pee-wee level. When Tune was age 7, his older brother (Nathan) led Celina High School to an undefeated 16-0 season and the 2005 state championship. Nathan went on to play at North Texas (2006-10), then was a high school assistant after his playing days and allowed Clayton to be a ball boy and practice with older players when he was in middle school. As an eighth grader at McMath Middle School in Denton, Clayton Tune led the team to a championship. He enrolled at Denton Ryan High School, a successful program in North Texas, where he was expected to compete for the starting job with another fellow freshman (Spencer Sanders, who would go on to play at Oklahoma State). However, Tune broke both of his wrists in a freak basketball accident prior to the 2014 season and Sanders was the clear starter. The coaches wanted to shift Tune to safety, but the family decided to move to nearby Carrollton, where Tune enrolled at Hebron High School and became the starting quarterback as a sophomore, posting 1,825 passing yards and 24 total touchdowns. As a junior, he was named District Player of the Year with 2,445 passing yards, 512 rushing yards and 30 total touchdowns (22 passing, 8 rushing). As a senior, Tune led Hebron to the playoffs for the third straight year (they lost to Allen, the eventual 2017 state champions) and finished with 2,416 passing yards, 368 rushing yards and 33 total touchdowns (23 passing, nine rushing, one kickoff return). He finished his prep career with 6,686 passing yards, 1,074 rushing yards and 86 total touchdowns (66 passing, 20 rushing). Tune also ran track as a sophomore (hurdles and jumps). A three-star recruit, Tune was the No. 35 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 recruiting class and the No. 115 recruit in Texas (No. 6 QB in the state; Spencer Sanders was No. 1). He initially committed to Kansas after his junior season but backed out eight months later, amid his senior year, when he picked up offers from Houston, Ole Miss and UCF. Tune still considered Kansas but signed with the Cougars and head coach Major Applewhite and enrolled early in January 2018. He was expecting to redshirt in 2018 but was forced onto the field after starter D’Eriq King suffered a serious knee injury. Tune entered the 2019 season as the backup, but he stepped into the starting role after four games when King elected to sit out the rest of the season and take a redshirt. He took advantage of the extra year of eligibility because of COVID and returned for a fifth season in 2022. His father (Steve) is a former professional Motocross driver. Tune graduated with his degree in business administration in finance. He initially accepted an invitation to the 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl before flipping to the Senior Bowl.

WEAKNESSES: Too many low-percentage decisions on his film … doesn’t shy from tossing up 50-50 balls to see what happens and trusts his receivers (or his arm) too much … eye discipline is not a strength, bird-dogging his desired read and telegraphing throws … doesn’t have high-level arm power and his passes lose noticeable life when he attempts to make off-balance attempts … will run into pressure at times in the pocket … his field vision and read timing stand to improve … stayed durable in college but had a few issues in high school, including a right leg injury during the playoffs as a junior (November 2016). SUMMARY: A four-year starter at Houston, Tune showed clear development over his time in college and thrived in Dana Holgorsen’s version of the Air Raid offense. Tune returned for a fifth season in 2022 and set the AAC record with 40 passing touchdowns, third-most in the FBS (behind Caleb Williams and C.J. Stroud). With his mental fortitude and clutch gene, Tune consistently played his best late in games and executed regardless of the moment. Although he forces throws at times, especially when going big-play hunting, he plays well in rhythm and trusts his internal clock to know when to bail or get the ball out. Overall, Tune will face a learning curve as his decision-making and eye discipline translate to the pro game, but he is a natural passer with functional mobility, accuracy and intangibles worthy of the NFL game. He has the necessary tools to become a backup and spot starter at the next level
