Both can be inflenced by physical attributes such as arm strength and mobility. Others tend to say "its a product of the system" they play in.

IMO the complexity of the system may or may not require the QB's to develop on the ability to engage in pre-snap reads that would be more of the "mental" aspect of the game. The reads may require a QB to audible to a play with a higher percentage of success. IMO this has been one of the downfalls of the Chiefs QB's of late. They have not developed these skills and we haven't had the coaching staff to teach them.

I would rather have an accurate QB who can make good pre-snap reads over a QB with better physical attributes. Regardless, the players coming out in the draft have had successful college careers for the most part and can play ball.

Which QB's available through the draft or otherwise have a strong mental capacity to engage in pre-snap reads?
like Trent Green?

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
