McGinn, was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last summer. Great reporting with an excellent sense of humor.


Wisconsin Journal Sentinel: Draft Preview by Position

Rating the NFL draft prospects: Quarterbacks
Read here: http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/148026515.html

this is what some scouts were saying about RG3 in april last year, kind of interesting in retrospect:

Quote:
"Everybody is just assuming because of the Heisman and the socks and all that bs. . . . they are ignoring a lot of bad tape that he's had," a third scout said. "I don't think he has vision or pocket feel, which to me are the two most important components of quarterbacking. He's just running around winging it. He's (Michael) Vick, but not as good a thrower." Finished with passer rating of 110.1 and 2,254 yards rushing (33 TDs). "He has better arm action and is more accurate with his deep ball, but he's not as good as Cam Newton," a fourth scout said. "As much as is written about his athleticism, his athleticism under duress in the pocket isn't even close to Cam Newton's. This guy, the only way he gets big plays with his feet is if he's got a wide-open field and the sea opens for him. He's got a little bit of a selfish streak, too. Everybody was laying on Cam, but for some reason this guy has become gloves off. He doesn't treat anybody good." Another scout also questioned the way Griffin deals with people.
