For us in particular I don’t think either is a good option.
Both Howell and Pickett seem like better fits.
Howell has shown that he can do it all, now he just needs to do it all at one time. Pickett on the other hand could be a late boomer or he could have taken advantage of being the most experienced player in the ACC. Regardless, both can start right away. I just don’t think either is going to be a top 10 QB at anytime in this league.
Willis and Strong probably both need to sit for different reasons.
Also, Strong very well could have a great career. Eli Manning did and he’s as unathletic as they come. You just have to wonder about Strong’s ability to process a defense with his lack of athleticism to by him time. The game will move much quicker in the NFL than it does in the Mountain West. I think a good example is watching his tape against Kansas State. He had a decent game but the game moved much quicker for him and he doesn’t have the athleticism to make up for it. Then you watch Willis play Virginia Tech and you see that he’s raw and erratic but he’s so athletic that he can make up for it even playing at a high level. Pro’s and cons to both if those guys but both need to sit.
