In the Starting Line-Up
2020 Weekly NFL Picks Winner
What? What?I still kinda like Kizer, but not for the same reason as Mullens. Kizer is a backup at best, but I appreciated his willingness to go out there and take a beating every Sunday. Not what I would want Mullens to be doing.
But my overall point is that I think Mullens is a sleeper pick based on what I'm seeing of him on the field I'm actually impressed with his talent as a pocket passer. His problem right now is INTs, and I think that's because of the collapse of the 49ers defense. When a guy is playing from behind, he takes risks and risks mean picks. If he can break that habit or if his defense can start making the most of their talent again he could make something of himself.
I think he's better than bottom-third starters like Andy Dalton or Gardner Minshew right now. And he's far and away better than Cam at the moment.
