Last year he didn't throw a ton of times a game or for a ton of yards. He didn't have a high YPA, high TD rate, etc. It's more of a look thing than the stats.
That being said, I have no really seen them this year but the stats from a glance to seem to bear out my theory still.
Norm, what's your take on the top QB's coming out more than likely? Such as Geno, Barkley, Bray, Wilson, Murray, etc.
I think Barkley is a Matt Ryan type for the most part. I'd draft him if I need a QB, I doubt he flunks out like some other USC kids but I don't think he becomes a star either.
Bray seems to have the arm and size. Pretty prototypical but you'd like to see him playing at a higher skill level. Has the talent around him too. I'm a Bray guy though. If I think I can develop QB's. I give him a shot over most.
Wilson has a Romo feel to him to me. Not in a bad way, though that seems to come off like that anymore.
Murray I like. Pretty well rounded kid. I had my eye on him as a HS recruit and thought he would be a true superstar by now.
I don't know. At this point, with only limited live looks. I haven't picked up on anything too much. I'll know more later on.
Barkley I think is spot on. Some people think the dude isn't going to be worth a damn in the NFL. I really disagree with that, I think he'll be very good but never great, kind of like you refer to. I'd definitely take a Ryan type on my team anyday, lol.
My dude Phillip Thomas, FS, Fresno St.
I guess he's on a lot more people's radar than I originally thought.
I'm tellin' you guys. He's going to keep rising.
I haven't looked deep but I see more than one first round skillset. And QB's are always overdrafted. When's the last time one QB went round 1? Never? lol
I know you just meant "aren't worth" but I don't agree with that statement at all either. This QB class is meh but not that bad.
Right now, there's a lot of things that aren't being seen. You should have seen all the things that were contradictory last year about RGIII after I watched 3 games very closely and did a little report compared to everyone else.
