Could we be sleeping on Mac Jones? Charlie Weiss says YES.

Where is this he’s throwing to wide open guys narrative coming from i see it used so many times this pass year or so never before. You know how many qbs i seen miss wide open guys down the field ?  Now it’s a problem when they make a completion to them lol  . It’s lazy to judge a qb off of just that . Guess Joe burrow is gonna be bust as well cause his guys was running wide open all over the field his last year. Check out his (Mac Jones) red zone throws dude has great ball placement i like him that’s just me tho. 

Watch his passes vs. Burrow's and stop being emotional. Burrows hit dudes in stride. With Jones, those receivers are generally having to slow down and/or make other adjustments. That gives NFL DBs time to recover. There aren't going to be many times where you're open by ten yards in the NFL like those Bama WRs were.

being able to throw deep isn't the same as being willing to.

I doubt there is a huge difference in arm strength between the two, Teddy just chooses to be really conservative for whatever reason.

 

If being able to throw deep was the only quality you needed to be a good nfl qb then you would have a point . There is a huge difference between the two and if you don’t see it then you don’t wanna see it .

It's almost like you didn't watch the Panthers play this year. 

Stop watching the results of college plays/games and thinking it directly translates to the NFL because it worked in college. Oh yay! Mac Jones just completed a 50 yard pass for a TD! He's amazing! Nevermind that the WR had the CB beat by ten yards but nearly had to come to complete stop allowing him to nearly catch up then simply out-motored the physically out-matched CB to the endzone.

I’m not being emotional why would you make that assumption if you wasn’t being emotional your self . Your guy Zach Wilson is not it stop crying every-time someone state that fact . He’s Mitch Tribusky 2.0 all over again . Mac Jones will be better that’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it . Quote me on that . Every thing you saying about Mac i could counter and say about Zach that’s why it’s funny . Yeah his arm talent is better but it’s plenty of throws i seen that would’ve been picks in the nfl .

Our Rivalry used to be an every year thing and Auburn burned us up for most of it but I feel a bit of that 0-4 since 2011 salt coming out in this post Tiger! haha

I'm sure it has nothing to do with that 🙂

Sorry, Cousin Clem, just my honestly held opinion.

My salt is reserved for Bama and UGA.

Sorry, Clem, but your Rivalry Application has been officially:

Maybe try Syracuse? 😛

Dudes the most mechanically sound QB behind Lawrence. Makes NFL throws on the regular and has great pocket presence. Scouting the player and not the helmet he's easily better than McCarron and way more polished than someone like Daniel Jones, Mitch Tribusky and Blake Bottles. He's a first round QB easy.

I'd say the asking price of QBs make him worth a top 10 pick. He has a higher ceiling than QBs that got this kind of rise like Ponder, Dalton, etc. But I get the question marks, but I think they're overblown a tad with the hype around pocket presence.

Is he a better prospect that Fields, Wilson, Lawrence and Lance? Athletically no, not even close. But I think people parrot his weakpoints and over look how his play was just as vital to that Albama offense this season. He's a damn good QB.

Cowherd just predicted he is the most likely first round QB to be a bust. At Alabama he had great receivers frequently open and an Oline that usually gave him a great pocket to throw from and a great coach. Finding all that in the NFL on one team, impossible.  All that on top of being unathletic.

The first round is far kinder statistically. This has been something that had been looked at by more than one source and the statistics bear out that first round QB's have greater career success on average. That shouldn't be a surprise, as they are typically widely regarded as better prospects.

I am not interested in a non-first round QB this season not only because those prospects are not likely to be any better than what we have now but because we are a team with many needs and "wishing and hoping" in the second round is sort of what our past GM was famous for.

This is an extremely deep OL draft, take a guy that can replace replace 3-4 starters that will be gone from that unit. Or take any number of othet positions we have big two deep needs(TE, DE, DT, LB, S, CB, etc).

It'll still all boil down to the scouting/evaluation of each individual QB.  What round a QB was drafted in is ultimately meaningless as a standalone metric; the only reason we reference it, is because it's convenient to make these types of generalizations when we're looking at things at a macro level.

Think of it this way: if we draft Mac Jones in the 1st round vs. the 2nd round, does that mean he's more likely to succeed?  Arguably less so, since we'll presumably be getting a lesser complementary player in the 2nd round as a result (i.e. WR, o-lineman).

I've been saying it for a while now and I'm going to keep saying it: Mac Jones will be our pick. And he'll be the right pick.

I know, a lot of folks more in the know are saying he's a bust, doesn't have it, would be a wasted pick. Heard the same thing, from a lot of the same people, when I said CMC would be our pick at #8. They were wrong, so wrong, then and they are wrong again.

People point at Jones and say he is a product of the system. He had a pro quality O-line. Pro-level receivers and RB. Had pro-level coaching and game planning. Pro-type program all around. He had everything a professional football team should be able to provide him, right?

So how did he do?

The guy was accurate (311-422, 77.4%, 4500 yards in 13 games, 11.7 yds avg, 41 TD, 4 INT), won every game he played in last season (including a playoff game AND the national championship) and even Nick Saban praised the guy's maturity and leadership. 

He's not a gym rat, he's not the tallest guy out there and he's certainly not the fastest. But he wins. He works. He does the film study. He reads the defense. He spreads the ball around. To the right team.

He's the pick. If not, then we will live to regret it big time.

This will be a fun read in three months.

I think there are handful of throws that Mac Jones simply can't make in the NFL...that Trevor and Fields can.  I honestly haven't watched enough of Lance and Wilson to judge their arm strength.  Just what I have read. 

I'd feel more comfortable about an unathletic QB if he had a laser.

Hey now it was a real rivalry back in nineteen tickety two for our Boomer fans. Like any great team we have to get beat by some random ass scrub team or it's not a legit arrival.

    • Good left tackles don't grow on trees, of fall in your laps. 
    • Kelvin Joseph would be a riser rn if we had a typical combine. He would probably have a really good combine and at 6'1-6'2 he's got prototypical size at CB.  Dude is my #1 CB. I like him more than Surtian. I like him more than Farley. He is technically sound, patient and can matchup with so many corners in the NFL. Has some ill-elaborated "character concerns" I've heard varying degrees of, but would love LOVE him in the second and I'm screaming to the podium if he's there in the third. Davis Mills is my first real "has a chance to be a starter early" QB prospect in a few years. That said for us he'd still be my plan E for walking away with a QB this off-season. Can be a really rhythmic passer and makes some really good improv plays. Throws the post like a champ. But also has some real head scratcher plays and his mechanics are wonky. He reminds me of Prescott coming out, that's not to say he'll be the caliber of NFL player Prescott is. I'd try him in the Mid 3rd-4th range. He's my QB7 (above Trask). Could work well in this offense but I have the controversial take of saying the same about Mac Jones at 8 if they like him. Finally, and I'm piggybacking Voch Lombardi on this one I haven't looked into this guy much myself, but Richie Grant looks like the best FS in this class easy. Smart as a fuging whip and IDs routes and puts himself in the best position routinely. Would even trade up in the 20s if there's a chance someone might Darnell Savage him this year. Would be ecstatic if his stock stayed the same. There's a few more gems I want to look into. There's some decent mind round UTs I want to look into. I'm still novice at Oline so I haven't really touched this class.  
    • I have seen him mocked as high as late 2nd, and as low as early 4th, but mostly middle 3rd.... His talent is undeniable, but some question his effort this past season. I don't put a lot of stock in that as he was playing through some injuries.
