Worthy skills to be sure, and in fairness he does have rare field vision when on the move. But those traits aren’t what win in the NFL. It’s about what you can do from the pocket, fundamentally.
He does throw a natural deep ball, so credit to him for that. It’s a tough projection, pro-style guys will hate him, some of the more…I’ll be polite and say “creative” evaluators will fall in love with him. "
