I found this interesting re: first round QBs


Recommended Posts

I mean, he's always trying to push it and maximize plays.  I personally love Fields.  He should be our target if the ATL pick goes Lance (or) no-QB.  Could be at 8, could be a trade up.

To be fair, Teddy didn't run a real RPO offense in college. I'm not sure this is indicative of a QBs NFL tendencies in an entirely new offense.

I compare Fields and lance to chocolate and raisin cookies. One is gonna be a sweet chocolate one and the others gonna be a nasty raisin one. You have to chose which one is the chocolate and who's the raisin. While Mac jones is the healthy bland tasting salad and Lawrence and Wilson are the expensive desserts you can't afford.

PFF has Fields as the most accurate passer in the class, best deep ball in the class and uses screens the least of all the top QBs in the class. He had two bad games against the top defenses in the country during weeks his team didn’t really practice and they weren’t sure who was going to be available and who wasn’t. He’s a great kid and a great thrower of the football. If we can get him without giving up a ton we need to go for it.

So the guy with the MOST rpo/screen stuff from that list is considered the next coming of Jesus? Yeah, point not really made there.

I mean it is a huge part of his game. Why can’t he be the second coming of Jesus while also throwing a lot of screens?

If it comes down to Fields or a LT, I take Fields. Yes, our line sucks, but there are OT and OL available in rounds 2 through mid 4th that can make us better. You rarely get a chance at a Franchise QB without giving up a fortune

The two big concerns I'd have with Lawrence if we were in the game for him are:

a) that offence is gimmicky as poo. So much of it is based off screens, misdirection and RPO with superior athletes.

b) his inconsistent ball placement when throwing downfield. 

That stat right there backs up a).

Exactly. The issue comes in when such a QB is also unable to drive the ball down the field. Mahomes (an extreme example chosen to highlight the point) gets a lot of passing yards like this, but there is zero question about if he can also drive it down the field.

Because, according to this place, checkdown/rpo/screen, etc. QBs are straight trash. You're only elite if you throw bombs all day.
