he is a warm weather qb period .we will not be drafting him if we do then zimmer and spielman both got go next year ....i dout if this kid has ever been in the snow ....look where he played and grew up .nope it will be a bigger mistake than hiring frazier as head coach
No Bridgewater ,take the best player on the board .
The hand size does concern me a bit, but not as much as some of you guys. His hands aren't abnormally small...a quarter inch less than average. Garoppolo's are the same as his, Carr's and Murray's are both an eighth inch shorter, and Bortles' are an eighth inch bigger. In his 3 years at Louisville he had 1, 5, then 3 fumbles on the year...not sure but I think that's about average. Cold affects all quarterbacks and I don't get the assumption that it'll affect him any more. Lots of QB's played high school and college in warm weather. Seems to me most QB fumbles happen because the QB is not aware of a DL on him and doesn't tuck soon enough. And EVEN IF he does end up fumbling a little more, I think his lack of interceptions will make up for that.
Another assumption I keep hearing is that his ceiling isn't as high as some others, as if he can't improve like they can. It's like being so polished and a hard worker is a bad thing. But really what is it that makes a great QB? What is it about Manning, Brady, Brees? It's between the ears for sure. And even they needed some time in the NFL before they got to be as good as they are. No, he's nowhere near them, and chances are he won't get there (like any other rookie) but he's closer to it than anyone else in the draft. They're all gambles but he's the one I would gamble on.
He gets it on the field. He knows how to read a defense and knows where to throw the ball. He moves around the in pocket and doesn't lose his composure when linemen are around. He's accurate. He's awesome on 3rd down because of his decision making. Yeah his deep ball might not be as good as some, but it isn't bad either. I'd much rather take the guy who knows when to throw the deep ball than the guy who (most of the time) throws it a little better.
