He read some of his notes on Geno from the Oklahoma Game. Here are the highlights.
1. Eradic accuracy
2. Big time ability
3. Stares down too many receivers
4. Late on too many balls
5. Natural thrower
6. Beautiful delivery
7. Quick release
8. Can make evry throw
9. Poor eye discipline
10. On both interceptions he stared down the receiver, was late on the pass, and had poor eye discipline.
He was using these notes as to why he felt Geno should be there. He said he has a high level of talent but is way to inconsistant.
Mayock, Burmeister, and Davis all agreed there was no QB in this draft with a first round grade. Mayock said he thought at least three QBs would go in the first with the way people reach on them nowadays.
Daniel Jeremiah, former 8 year scout was also there. He scouted for the Ravens. He said he thought Geno was the only QB who would go in the first round. He thought it would be in the second half of the first and he was the only one he could say that about. He said the QBs were a roller coaster ride when you watch the tape. They are all inconsistant.
Last, Mayock said he had talked to several scouts who confirmed teams were not watching the 2012 film of Tyler Wilson becausee Arkansas was such a mess. They will not hold last year against Wilson
Anyway, I highlighted the bold parts because I shared these opinions and have been killed for them for a while now. It was nice to hear I'm not the only one who sees those things.
did he say anything about Geno dropping 49 points against the 8th ranked pass defense? or throwing for 320 yards and 4tds? Or what he did in the 4th quarter? If weren't impressed by that, you aren't impressed by anything
i'm still trying to figure out how an erratic thrower who stares at WRs and has poor 'eye discipline' (lmao, mayock) ends up with a 71% completion percentage while throwing 42tds to 6ints for a 7 to 1 td/int ratio?
i mean, the standard here is incredible...and when applied to the rest of the QBs in the draft, well....not pretty
