In the Starting Line-Up
Cousin, It's all a matter of opinion. I thought Leatherwood was a second rounder but there were somethings in Darisaws game that were eye opening as in "not a good finisher". In some evaluations, Leatherwood was rated a top five Tackle in this Draft. You could have said Tevin Jenkins but you can't deny the success of the Bama O line. So if you say he was a few picks high, it depends on what the Raiders needed. Not the sexiest pick but it was alright. That Team was so good that Leatherwood was an afterthought.Raiders had the biggest reach I think.
Thought the Saints might have reached more.
More opinions: It amazes me that people slam the Pats for Jones. I think you have more issues with Fields as an NFL QB to correct.
Heard an amazing piece of information on BB of what he wants in a QB from Daniel Jeremiah back in 1991. Jones checks all BB requires.No where did it say the QB must be able to run around for 3.5 seconds and escape pressure to be a runner. We have pigeon- holed all QB into that today.
But it's not true.Starting QB's that are pocket guys first are still very good QBs like Stafford, Ryan, Justin Herbert, Big Ben, to a lesser extent Darnold, who is still young and I am sure the Colts don't want Wentz running around. Fact is everyone of these runners gets hurt or take a beating like Russell and look how the Chiefs were neutralized in the Super Bowl because Mahomes was so beat up he could not run.
We have one of the most proficient runners ever in the NFL at QB. He scored 12 TD's rushing. Where did that bring us.
Mac Jones in not a bad athlete; 4.68 is not slow. It was not his game at Bama.
Height: 6-2 5/8 Weight: 217 40-yard dash: 4.72, 4.68 Vertical jump: 32 inches Broad jump: 9 feet, 8 inches Shuttle: 4.39 3-cone: 7.04
The much more mobile rated QB Trevor Lawrence had a 40 time of 4.78. The Jags did not pick him to run. FYI Stidham ran a 4.81
Alright wait for it....wait for it. What was Josh Allen's 40 time? ........4.76 What was Justin Herbert's 40 time ? 4.69.......How about Mahomes 40 time? 4.8. Tua? 4.9...............Apears to me we have the faster QB that any of those guys
How about Watson? 4.66...Cam 4.59. For those who wanted the ever mobile Jimmie G, his time was 4.97
Bill would have Drafted Jones because of his 3 cone time alone.....ha!
