This senior bowl is going to be loaded with talent and I can't wait to watch the practices. I am really excited to see if Gandy-Golden can still create seperation with high level talent. I remember Deebo Samuel last year tearing it up last year during the senior bowl workouts and look how well he's done for San Fran
Like Lamar Jackson did, vs the Titans, LOL.
The difference is Mahomes is a contortionist, doesn't need his feet set for a lot of his off balance throws that get there with weird arm angles too, Lamar has to set his feet. Can't coach that, can't teach that, IMO.
It'd better be fluid.
I don't really want to bang the Luck drum too much, but I'm 98% sure that Ballard took this job because filling in the gaps around Luck seem'd like a doable thing. Luck retiring has changed everything and now Ballard has to draft a QB- which is a substantial part of the culture.
He's going to have a real track record soon.
I would be all good with drafting him anywhere in the second. IMO he's got 1st round talent but poor QB play this year might get his stock low enough for him to drop out of the 1st. He's blazing fast and a good route runner. I think he's much more than just a gadget guy.
I didn't say that Mahomes wasn't a great QB, I'm merely saying that when he scrambles, IOW when the play breaks down, his skill position players also know what they are doing by also getting 4 yards from a defender, at least a lot of the time.
If they were not able to do that, I wonder what Mahomes would look like.
