Watson looked super smooth today, looked great. Honestly in a class by himself from the other QBs. Sorry UNC fans. It’s funny how everyone said Watson was undersized and Trubisky was prototypical size wise leading up to this, yet they weigh the same, are the same height, have almost the same size hands, and run the same speed. HMMM. In a perfect world I’d love to see Watson fall past the Browns (I think they will go DLine first) to one of the other teams in need, Arizona or Houston specifically (I think they’d need to trade up to get him though) Hard to see him dropping past the Jets or Bills picks.
Trubisky, Pearman, and Mahomes are the only two that should be mentioned in the same breath as Watson. The biggest thing that annoys me about the love for Trubisky is the fact that they ignore the fact that Watson has 3x the experience and 4x the production. You would think that would stand for something. He’s won almost as many games as the next 3 best QB’s in his class combined.
So did Tim Tebow…that isn’t what the NFL is about. They are all about measurements and take into account all the things we don’t see. Bad reads, having to scramble to bail out and having your receivers make up for a bad pass.
Nobody is saying Watson isn’t great. It just is funny how defensive you guys seem to get because your guy might not be the first QB taken.
What’s the point of a combine invite if you aren’t going to participate? To me that makes no sense and I hate seeing a bunch of Clemson guys doing it as well as so many across the country. If you aren’t going to participate you shouldn’t be going. Just my opinion. Only 3 of the what 8 or so Clemson players ran the 40, and many of them didn’t or won’t take part in a number of drills.
Is the combine becoming like bowl games if school pro days take over as standard?
Well, the agents and their advisers are coaching them on what items to display. I don’t get to worked up about running without football gear on. Do you think I care what Hunter Renfrow’s 40? Can you play football? The Draft misses players all of the time and over-values players just as frequent.
I don’t think guys like Watson or Mike Williams needs to do any more than stay healthy.
