A late round sleeper QB to watch out for...


Recommended Posts

 

So looking back at this week's news that the 49ers move up to the #3 pick makes it pretty apparent that they may be looking at a QB and with that said, it could potentially put a wrinkle in our plans to draft a qb in this year's draft.... Or is it? 

Let me be clear, this is not Marty Burney's draft... This is Fitty's place to shine and he has been in the war room when the Seahawks drafted a guy that many thought would probably never amount to anything outside of being possibly a #2 QB but he proved doubters wrong and later won a Superbowl title with the help of him and that guy is no other than..... Russell Wilson...

But surely Fitty Magic can't strike buried gold again, right? Surely not... Right? But wait... I envision a similar situation happening here...

 

Enter Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

Now I know what you are probably thinking, "you are f'n crazy if you think this guy will amount to any thing more than a back-up QB" 

But I watch some game tape (yes, game tape, not highlights) and this guy has a good bit of moxie about him. His game is very similar to another recent Stanford QB by the name of Andrew Luck with a hint of Peyton Manning (and no, I am not saying he will be that level good but just that a similar style of game.)

Pros: Great in the pocket, has a bullet of a arm, prototyoical size, some mobility (can move around in pocket to buy time) 

Negatives: Tends to hold on to the ball, needs to add some weight, needs to be more accurate at times

Ladies and Gents... Davis Mills is my sleeper QB pick... 

Now proceed to bash away...

You're a little late on this.  Mills has steadily been creeping up Big Boards since his Pro Day.  He'll be a mid-round pick, not late. He should be the next QB off the board after Trask now.  Yes, in front of Newman and Mond.

I wouldn't mind taking him in the 3rd ONLY if the following scenario occurs:  the "big 4" all have been drafted AND we draft a franchise LT in the first round to protect him.  I've watched some of his game tape.  Davis has the tools, but has battled injury and, like Lance, has few starts to his name.

If we draft him, *ducks for incoming* Teddy will be the starter this year.  Mills will have to sit a season, no question.

Mills is from the Atlanta area, and was the top ranked QB in his Senior class coming out of High School.

Was bitten by the injury bug which has allowed him to only play in 14 games, with only 11 starts. He has the talent to be very successful if he can stay healthy. Will need to sit behind and learn from veteran QB to start his career.

I posted the same thing a few days ago.  I agree.

I still like Newman if we are taking a gamble on a project QB. Also Mond’s arm is going to get him drafted early 2nd, maybe late 1st IMO.

No way.  Like 0%.

My apologies for any reposting of a similar topic! I try my best to make sure to look back to make sure there isn't a similar topic but I can overlook things sometimes... My bad lol

Oh I wouldn’t do it nor would I want my team to, but someone is going to do it. He has one of the better arms and teams are desperate for QBs. I could see a team like Chicago or Denver reaching for him.

Isn’t exactly a hot take. He was the #1 qb in this class coming out of high school. Two knee injuries, a small body of work pushed him down.. but he can do it all.

    • A lot of times when coaches are scouting a player, they notice another player in the process.  So when we sign players from the same team, I try to figure it out.  Why take 2 players off a team with a terrible offense?  So I figured, "We were doing our due diligence on Darnold and Elfein may have been that "other" player.  So when I was watching this, I started watching #67.  Why would we give him a 3-year deal?  I get it.  He is solid.  at the 8 minute mark, he takes a DT to his left with his right arm alone.  Later, a DT tries to cross his face and swim over him, and drags him 5 yards down the LOS, allowing Darnold to run for about 20 yards. (9 min mark).   There are other plays, but I did not see him get beat---he was on a BAD OL and he held his own.  He may need to anchor vs. the bull rush a bit, but I am sold. I am actually taking LG off my list of concerns.
