I’m with you for the most part. Steve Young would go in the super mobile category and so would Kapernick.
I think mobility is a luxury item. Guys like Rodgers, young, Wilson, Mahomes enhance their games with it, but it’s not necessary as the popular narrative goes IMO.
moblie QB is a political buzzword IMO.
The key for great QBing, assuming there is adequate NFL arm strength, is reading and reacting from the pocket. These attributes are hard to quantify and that is why QB drafting is such a crapshoot.
Mobility=luxury item. Not necessary but can enhance.
I don’t pretend to be a college scout. I don’t watch much CFB and I have thought guys are going to be good that sucked and guys I thought would suck were good.
but. I saw 4 games by fields this year. He sucked v, IU. NW, and Bama. He was great v. Clemson. I have serious doubts. But I have seen a couple of rare throws., and he’s pretty sporty with the feet.
I would hate to be ina position to have to draft him, I lean bust on him.
Super Elite Mobile QB´s to do well in the Playoff.
Mahomes - MVP and Super Bowl Champ
Lamar - Concussion in a blow out loss (17-3), smashed by the titans last season (12-28)
Russell Wilson - 1 super bowl win
RGIII - 1 playoff game = loss
Watson - 1-2 in the playoff
Michael Vick - 2-3 in the playoff
Cam Newton - made it to the super bowl and got smashed by the Broncos
Meanwhile the immobile pocket passer that are getting devalued due to their lack of mobility:
Won 23 of the last 25 super bowls.
Big Ben 2
Eli Manning 2
Brad Johnson 1
Trent Dilfer 1
Kurt Warner 1
I would also take the immobile pocket passer ;)
