So on the QB front…
I wanted another year of Lock, and amazed others don’t. It’s QB Silly Season again, where people overdraft the hell out of them, and then spend the next few years recovering.
I am getting quite a lot of heat in the Broncos Pod, for my take on Trey Lance, and wanted your thoughts.
Ok, I’ll just say it, he is one of the worst ‘talked-about-top-10-prospects’ I have ever seen. He is literally a Day 3 QB, but given the position, people bump him to Day 1. It’s nuts! I have watched 3 highlights videos on him now, and not watched a single full game. My argument, is if I literally can not find ANYTHING of note, that translates to an NFL calibre QB, then do I need to watch full games on him?
All I have seen is MANY scrambles for big yardage or TDs, against Missouri Valley Schools, that would NEVER happen in the NFL; he’d be lit up and be in the medical tent quicker than you can say “Route Progression” or “Stay in School”
Then there are his throws. I think I’ve seen two that could be described as NFL level QB throws. All others, yes, ALL, are to open receivers. I don’t give the QB any credit for making those throws. Tight window throws are required, this is the NFL, not Missouri Valley. No wonder he didn’t throw a pick in college, lmao.
I know the US has gone crazy with Sports Gambling, which I find totally bizarre as someone from the UK (all my US Podcasts go on and on about gambling now), as we’ve always had this, but there is no need to extend this new found love for sports risk to our QB position.
I know you guys are Professional Draft Analysts, and you do this for a living, so you can’t have opinions too polarizing, especially as Lance COULD become an NFL Elite, and someone would dig up old info where you panned a guy, but please tell me I am wrong?! This kid should NOT go in Round 1, unless a GM particularly likes Russian Roulette
Peace out fellas, and feel free to rip me to shreds like everyone else is doing. I’ll have the last laugh, probably 🤷🤣
