^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.

    • I still have a hard time believing this. Rest in peace Kobe. Prayers for Kobe's and the other victim's families of this awful tragedy.
    • Any one else catch the parts about Chad Kelly. About how he has to show them they can trust him off the field? I’m not pushing for Chad Kelly as our next Qb, but I found that part interesting. Almost makes me wonder IF he’s not gonna get his shot at the starting job regardless of FA or the Draft results.
    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking.
