How much of a disadvantage would I be at trying to train up a QB that is 5* talent, but only about 33 Int? Only 16 years old currently in my academy, no talents.

I don't have much else going in the academy at the moment since I just recently started, but should I keep looking for a future QB, or for a first QB give them a shot?

I would be a little nervous about that low of an intelligence for a QB.

He's not really worth bothering with because the 5* talent won't come into play until a time when you'd ideally have someone much better. And at that point he'd be really expensive while still stupid.
You'd probably want to shoot for 40+ intelligence to start and not worry about the talent yet if you're treating him as a decent placeholder while searching for your long term answer.

Sounds good, I'll use the training points on someone else then, not sure who yet, but better than wasting them on someone I'll never use .

Thanks!

Would you put this guy at LB or DL?

What do you think?

When will his speed cap?

If speed is 49 I would put him on OLB, although he has low INT.

If speed max at 47-48 then a DL.

Thank you for the feedback. Not sure yet about the caps, just picked him up as a FA off the transfer market for nothing. I'll just wait until he caps out. Will find out soon enough.

For DL there is an issue of Teamwork, but for DE he wil do just fine.

Back to my earlier question about QB and speed/agility/strength. I've seen some comments and builds that seem to show speed is more important than strength.

My question is what do you value more in a qb, speed or strength?

Since it became common to assume speed does prevent sacks while most passes are under 10 yards I think most value high speed over high strength.
