Here is what Reich, Ballard and Sirianni want in an elite QB

Recommended Posts

-High-level accuracy

-The ability to process things

-Strong leadership capabilities

-Some play making with their legs

 

was the summarization. 

 

Enjoy!!! :) 

 

I wouldn't mind going for Tua or Herbert in a move up because Tua marks all 4 boxes, while Herbert marks 3 out of 4 to me.

 

On a side note, I am very much intrigued by Tanner Morgan of Minnesota and want to see how well he does in 2020, he is growing on me with his accuracy, he was ranked 7th in all of FBS behind only Burrow, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Ohio State’s Justin Fields, Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon’s Justin Herbert.

Agreed, although to be fair I think there is likely a different priority level set on certain abilities based on the preferences of individual coaches and GM's.

To me, the "some play making with their legs" suggests they may not settle for someone that is a statue in the pocket. It is more indicative of where the league is going. 

 

Plus, leadership, I am not sure, if it is an acquired skill over time. Respect is acquired over time based on your work ethic and performance but leadership is an attribute that comes more naturally for a few QBs over others, IMO.

When you just consider the FA QBs available that will make it to FA I think Bridgewater is the closest to all of their requirements.

I believe Fromm checks 3 of 4 boxes also, though, right?

I didn't review yet, but is that short list intended to be in order, or randomly listed?

You beat me to the punch. If it’s in order that certainly narrows the list

That short list is that of Kevin Bowen, I don't think it has any weighting attached to it, IMO. That is the way I read it.

Interesting the one thing that you don't see in that list --- big arm strength.

That does sound like it's leaving room for a guy like Fromm. 

having said that, look at the QBs that Reich and Ballard have been involved with. For the most part, they big (tall). Wentz, Foles, Alex Smith, Mahomes. 

Interesting.

Gordon: 22

Nate Stanley: 24

Kellen Mond: 41

Shea Patterson: 42

Ballard mentions that leadership comes in all different forms. He said it can come from just work ethic.

Man, drafting a QB is a 50-50 shot.  None of the guys this year really make you feel confident they are close to a sure thing. I would say Tua would be the guy but that will take a lot of draft capital to get him.

It's more like a 1 or 2 in 10. It's weird that both Watson and Mahomes panned out for example. On average a draft class produces one QB that's passable. It's not common for game changers to come along. Tua is the guy that should be targeted on the off chance that there's two guys in this class (the 4 or 5 projected first rounders aren't all going to be good.. no way) again if drafting a guy is the move.

 

I look at drafting a QB like buying a lotto ticket. It's not a good investment, but you can't win if you don't play.

I've got more friends that are Bears fans than Colts fans and a refrain I hear from them is that the team really should consider drafting a QB every other year, if not every year. I know that's fan babel to a degree, but looking at what the Cardinals did, I don't think it's that far fetch and maybe they're right. 

Teams without QB's.. there's many and the Colts are one currently.

I absolutely love Watson.  I thought he was the steal of the draft when Houston traded up for him. Didn’t know Mahomes would be this good.  Watson still is great tho.  I knew the Colts would be in trouble bc all that kid does is win. I can’t remember the game  but Watson was hit by two defenders at the same time and got away somehow.  Either threw a TD or a long completion immediately. That kid is dynamite and Houston will always be in contention with him.

    • LOL, this thread to a huge turn off topic....   Back on topic (Blackmon being a good run defender).....   If you watch any of his games, you know he's a great run defender. I'd recommend staring with the 2019 PAC12 Championship game vs Oregon. The very first play, Blackmon levels the WR who catches the ball behind the LOS...., and I mean totally Mack Truck's him. Poor guy is laying on the ground holding his ribs. I've linked it below, timed right before the play for ease...   It's why I say, to me, he projects as a well rounded stud SS, not a FS. If you watch the game (I've watched 4 of his games thus far) or others, he's clearly better playing closer the LOS than he is roaming/lurking, or covering deep. He was moved to S after some pretty bad years at CB. And add in the fact that Utah's D is one of the most "man" oriented Ds (very unlike the zone we play), to me personally, everything screams SS.    
    • I love Arians making it but hate Brady making it. As long as colts are there(and win). I’d be stoked!
    • I look at AVG honestly most of all. The Colts were top 10 in AVG (lowest average gain per rush).   I'm familiar with what DVOA is, and follow FO frequently. I'd point out that they ranked the Colts 4th in rush D DVOA in 2018, while rating the pass D 20th.    In 2019, given our anemic O, soft zone D, and success against the run (both past and present), why wouldn't everyone throw more against us lol...    In short, rationally, you don't go from 4th to 19th in a year without substantial injury or personnel turnover. We only fell from 6th to 9th in AVG from 2018 to 2019. This is why I say take it with a grain of salt.
    • LOVE THE OPTIMISM! And here I thought I was being bold by predicting the Colts going 12-4.
    • First five(5) carries, Taylor will eclipse 100 yds easy.
