I agree, as well as that, I think his personality would be perfect for Reich. He is a super smart guy (academic All American) and seems very coach-able. I think he is the type Frank would enjoy working with.
Not that I'm not high on players like Jordan Love or Anthony Gordan, but I think if Ballard believes Herbert is a franchise talent, then he has to probably cut a deal with the Giants to move above the Chargers. It could hurt us in the short term, giving up alot of picks, but getting a franchise QB is everything.
