I'm not sold.

Before i read anything on the guy i watched his highlights to see if my opinion matches what scouts are saying.

My initial reaction was that i've never seen a highlight package so full of throws in which the QB's feet are parallel to the horizontal field markers. He torques his body quite a bit in his throws and that's good, but damn, his footwork is all over the place. It's not something you see in a successful NFL QB.

There were about 2-3 plays in there in which it looked like he immediately panicked after his 1st read wasn't open. He was dancing in a clean pocket. The kind of shit we grill Alex Smith for, only worse. That was what i found to be most alarming about it.

With that said, it WAS a highlight film i was watching. So despite what i just mentioned, he still made big plays.

His mechanics look piss ass imo. Year after year we see QB's with piss ass mechanics fizzle out in the NFL. But maybe you could argue that he has that "IT" factor.

Despite some of the worst mechanics i can remember, the guy made plays.
