Seriously, even though he sounds like a young Tom Brady...
Has a very quick trigger and good wrist snap that translates to a smooth throwing motion and clean, compact delivery (no windup). Lightning release quickness. Urgent decision maker. Sells play-action. Athletic enough to slide in the pocket and buy time with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. Good anticipation -- throws his receivers open. Can change ball speeds and drop it in a bucket. Does not take unnecessary sacks and will dump the ball. Will deliver the ball looking down the barrel of a gun. Tough-minded and poised in the pocket -- can withstand a hit and pop back up. Highly competitive. Smart, respected, vocal team leader. Very durable, experienced, four-year starter. Good football intelligence.
Is a tad undersized with small hands and short arms. Uses a three-quarters delivery that could lead to batted balls. Works heavily out of the shotgun in a spread offense, and footwork could require adjustment to working from under center. Does not always feel pressure in the pocket. Does not rip the deep out or drive the ball with high RPMs. Undershoots and often hangs the deep ball. Makes receivers work for the ball downfield, and deep accuracy could stand to improve. Makes a lot of simple, one-look reads and was not heavily challenged by consistent pressure or complex looks in the Ohio Valley Conference.
A decorated FCS passer, Garoppolo could excite quarterback coaches with his quick delivery, mental make-up and work habits, yet he still needs to prove he can fit the ball into tight windows and do more than carve up soft shells the way he regularly did on his way to a record-breaking performance in college. Possesses the physical tools to eventually earn an NFL starting job in a rhythm passing game with continued refinement but is more of a caretaker than a game changer and will require some patience adapting to the NFL game.
...So too, did Zach Robinson, in 2010. Idk...Imho, who needs a sure handed WR/Move TE, Bookend 4-3 DE, Starting Center, or Complimentary Back to couple with Ridley In Order to hoist the Lombardi in 2015, IF:
...you can garner a #3 Developmental Quarterback in the 2nd Round.
I don't wanna naysay...I really don't, buuuut=
Does ANY-one else envision the following play-out here on out?:
3rd Rd: 39th rated Cornerback and good kick returner
4th Rd: Punter
4th Rd Comp: Oft-Injured Wide Receiver from some big name program/school whom saw the field less than 3 other WRs from same big name program/school.
6th Rd: Not-on-Any-List of the top 600 players in the draft...Guy from Southern Methodist U who can play ST's, Cornerback, Wildcat QB, or Punt Return
7th Rd: Scat-back from Eastern Connecticut State
7th Rd: 17th rated Extremely undersized Offensive Center w/ good long-snapping capabilities
...and call it'a'day!
