Actually it's been the opposite for me. I watched three of his games this year and I thought he was a good player... obviously is at the college level. A couple weeks ago I started watching and reading more about him, especially when it was clear we'd get the #1, we'd need a QB, and we had no idea if Luck would declare... which brought me to this:

Bottom line: I agree, just because Cam isn't asked to make multiple reads doesn't mean he can't... but like The Golden Calf of Bristol, I think you have to be concerned about using a high pick on a guy who hasn't been asked to do much of this because you don't know where the ceiling is on how much of it he can do.

This is my concern at this point in time. It's not that I doubt he has some raw potential or skill at the NFL level, but I don't know how you spend a #1 pick on someone who we really can't get a good read on his mechanics and passing tools that he brings to the NFL... Perhaps tonight will be different, but I doubt it.
