Hey guys quick question to start off what will be the best way to follow your draft coverage? Will be excitedly tuning in with y’all and can’t wait!
Now to the more juicy topic and I will try to summarize my thoughts without making this post too long. Sorry in advance Zac you won’t like it.
My QB Rankings:
It doesn’t really matter about the top 2 because everyone knows they are going 1 & 2. Just put Zach #1 to show that’s how much I like him. His mechanics especially footwork are amazingly good!
I wish after the 49ers trade we offered nearly the exact same deal maybe plus Drew Lock for #2 overall. No chance now with Darnold gone, but here’s why:
I think if we got Wilson we would instantly be competing to have the best QB in the AFC West. I know… call me crazy, but Wilson has far better footwork mechanics = more accurate than Mahomes, I think a quicker release, and just as big of an arm.
Lance is the guy I realistically want so much to be a Bronco. My comp is he is a way more accurate version of Josh Allen out of college, and I think he is going to shock people in the way that Dak did with how quickly he is going to start and play well! Wow, the ball just explodes out of his hand! Every catch at his pro day you could hear the pop of it hitting reciver’s hands. If he goes number 3 I don’t want a first round QB in this draft. Just pick up draft capital for next year.
Fields scares me, just seems like a poor man’s Lamar Jackson with lots of polish needed in every area of his mechanics. It may be too much to be able to fix. He will have a throw I like, but then moments later he will throw a complete dud. Also if he is struggling to get to 2nd reads in college he will have such a hard time learning to get to his 2nd+ reads in the next level. We’ve already seen how a QB that’s a slow mental processor works out in Paxton Lynch. Don’t get me wrong Paxton was so bad his college highlight videos made me cringe. Field’s isn’t that bad… but in the meantime defenses will feast on that and our variety of offensive weapons go to waste with a QB that can’t see the field.
And finally Mac Jones, sorry Zac, I just don’t see it. Why do you like him and Alabama in general so much Zac? I think we could draft him and still have the 4th best QB in the AFC West.
I’ve watched the pro days from the top 5 QBs and some tape too and as a former HS QB that loves to teach friends how to properly throw this is my brief summary. Will root for whoever we draft, but really hoping the Fields interest is one last smoke screen to hide the Love for Lance! Go get him if the 49ers pass! Go Broncos!
