I started thinking about this and if this is true, they were present for half of his games this year watching. Either they are sold on him or not at this point. I don't think he could do much to change their minds in a pro daye. The most important part is still the interview at the combine. I will say that if they pass, then he was not the guy. To have all that information and pass on him, would put up a red flag for me.
I agree on all points. Some owners, like Jerry Jones want to control everything. Others like Irsay want to be involved but let the football guys call the shots. Others just stay out of it for the most part.
Strength of schedule gave them the nod.
I'm on the Love train too, but even if we do draft him, you're going to be severely disappointed if your expectation is getting a Patrick Mahomes clone. Mahomes is a special, special talent. Expecting any player to be at that level, especially a rookie, is a surefire way to be let down.
