I don't think so.

Prescott had odd mechanics but he repeated them. Prescott knew where the ball was going when he released it because for however strange his mechanics are, he knows exactly what they'll be over and over again.

Watson isn't like that. His trigger is different every time. His feet placement is different every time. His delivery/release is different.

He's just very inconsistent.

It's similar to the distinction between precision and accuracy in shooting. If you're a precise shooter who isn't accurate, you'll have a great grouping, 3 inches left of the ten ring every time. If you're accurate but imprecise, it may take you 5 times and you'll miss in 4 directions but on the 5th shot, you'll drill the center.

I'll take precision because I can work with it; if I know I'm going to shoot 3 inches left every time, I'll just start aiming 3 inches to the right of center. That's sorta what Prescott does - he's quirky, but it's a repeatable quirky that he can compensate for. With Watson, he's just all over the place and occasionally falls into the right answer. But you never know when and it's not quite steady enough to know which part to fix.

I won't yell loudly if they take Watson because Reid knows more about QBs than I do and I'm wrong more often than not with those guys. But that's my biggest concern with him - I just don't know if the 'precision' is there to build on whereas last season demonstrated that Dak's was.
