^this is the exact thing I've been saying about Hurts... he's way too much like Brissett as a pocket passer and I don't really want to rely on his running. This is the reason I personally would not want to draft him.

I can't wait to see that LSU/Georgia game. I may be wrong but I think LSU keeps their train rolling. 

I'm more interested to see how Fromm does. It's very likely they will need to actually score some points in order to win this one, so Fromm will need to move the ball and make things happen. This is important game for his draft profile.

So far I have not been impressed in what I have seen from these QB that are supposed to go high in the draft.

I know that Jalen has improvements that need to be made but look at what he has done when he has a legit coach who helps him. 
 

Kiffin- 2016

2,780 yards, 23 TD, 9 INT- passing

954 yards, 13 TD- Rushing

 

Lincoln Riley- 2019

3,039 yards, 28 TD, 5 INT- passing

983 yards, 15 TD- rushing

 

Led Alabama to Back to Back CFP Championship Games. Then went to Oklahoma and led to CFP Playoff. 
 

All I’m saying is he intrigued me and the kid is a WINNER, everywhere he goes. Also he improves. 
 

imagine what Reich could do with him.

Hi Stitches,

 

There is a College Football thread for the whole season. There are not many posts but I thought I'd mention it since you wrote that you were not sure where to post this. 

 

 

I am looking forward to Georgia and LSU. My favorite college QB is playing. Fromm is not the better of the two but he is the type of QB I like. He does not have glossy stats but seems to have all the intangibles. 

 

Note: I'm not sure where the Purdue Boilermakers logo came from. It does not show on the College Football thread.

Re: Georgia -- LSU

 

Joe Burrow looked like Aaron Rodgers on this first TD throw. He had so much time to throw!

Burrow is a baller. AND a good QB. I can't believe this transformation. Someone's gonna get a real nice player.

I agree. He may be the only sure thing in the draft at QB. I would be surprised if ends up being a bust. He is going #1.

Fromm is pushing it... he's made some uncharacteristic mistakes with somewhat easy throws. He's feeling the pressure of having to score a ton of points. I hope he settles down a bit.

Why was that not a fumble on that LSU player earlier? The player caught the pass, fell and lost the ball BEFORE he was touched by any Georgia player.

He transferred from Ohio State, I believe. How did they let him go?

Because they don't need to be touched to be down. If knee or forearm, etc touched the ground the player is ruled down.

I guess that is in College football. In the NFL, you have to be touched.

Burrow is clearly ready to start in the NFL.

 

Fromn actually doesn’t look bad it’s just he has been inaccurate and WR have dropped the ball.  I can see him as a NFL QB if he just works in his accuracy. They did mention his accuracy took a hit with WR injuries. They also mentioned his personality which tends to not be a alpha which hurts his leadership skills.

Burrow looked like an NFL QB for sure. Calm and poised, pocket awareness. If his receivers didn’t drop passes he would be killing Georgia.

I have a feeling outside of Burrow and TUA there are going to be a lot of QB busts out of this draft. If the colts can’t get Love and develop him for a year we might be screwed. Some of these teams that need QB are going to be in trouble. Maybe they decide to build their team and wait for a QB in a later round. Some of these guys might drop. Didn’t Mariota go to Oregon. Seems that system hurts players going to the next level.

Thank you.

 

Do you think Haskins will become a successful starting NFL QB?

Furthermore - this is the best strategy when it comes to QBs. If you don't have a franchise QB you are screwed in the league... so... when you don't have one you try and try again until you get one.

    • Yes. I think at sometime in this season, CB figured he was not going to be able to go forward with JB as the future and at some point determine where this Kelly kid had the mental strength it will take to become a leader of the team if called upon for the upcoming years. Makes zero sense to keep the kid on the team, not dress him even though JB was hurt/ineffective while still needing cb’s or wr’s due to injuries. He paid him well above the avg PS player salary to keep him here. Just too many signs pointed to CB went above and beyond to keep him here.    look, nobody here has disputed any of the kids football talents. Nobody here has disputed the mental aspect and maturity part of the kids game either. If he has been able to show CB and FR that he has matured, his football skills match up equally as well, of not maybe better than does Love or Heberts games and we know how he fits into the locker room and what he can do in practice. If he doesn’t screw up and maintains the Boy Scout, hard worker this offseason, I’m telling you, Kelly is going to get a fair shot at being the starter here in 2020.    need to have a poll that asks Kelly as starter 2020 yes or no with no other options or comments just so we can come back and see who said what in a thread 
    • I do recall CB saying that about value of the DT, however, he has said this offseason that we absolutely have to get better at the DT spot to make this defense work better. I think he sees that he may have placed that spot a little undervalued for this defense and will take a swing at getting it better in order to really open up the defense. It may have also meant, he placed last years draft tackles at valued starting in the 3rd round based on the talent that was there. Idk. I do think he will take a look at the FA market for a DT (Jones??)  and work inside the draft from there. He is gonna buy a player somewhere this year, bank on it. 
    • Much more complicated than that, even if you exclude the last minute Luck exit.  He also had virtually NO NFL experience. But, yeah, kinda. Not that uncommon with #3 QBs.  He was basically a practice squad guy that was brought up when JB was injured.  No different than the last #3 (walker) really.
    • I agree.  Tho i’m not sure what Ballard is planning on doing in draft.  Maybe he isn't yet either.   I think we all saw what Ballard may be excited about, physically speaking.  I think Ballard is making sure Kelly is getting his head on straight.    I am genuinely excited to see what happens in the draft.  Not sure why, but my gut says he may surprise us this offseason.  Both in the draft and FA.  Strap yourself in!
