Agree, and to add that at least some of the coaching staff’s are misusing said players. Hell we saw it last season with our own team. I’m of the belief that there’s MANY variables as to why some players can shine in their respective program while others cannot. Throw in many schools do not get the quality coaches and press coverage, so finding gems becomes more difficult at all the schools. Hardheaded coaching staffs can bury talent without even realizing it.Guys drafted in those rounds have a huge uphill battle in front of them just getting on the field for any sustained period. Of course it’s likely that the higher you are drafted the more innate and obvious talent you have. But there may well be a number of guys who never made it simply because they could never break into a roster sufficiently to get serious playing time.
I'm sorry Chris that you think that way. You apparently didn't see him play much. This young man is much better than what you think. "A flyer, though" ... 2020 UNC had a better Oline, and 4 weapons who all were drafted. Ask Dyami Brown, yes, 1 of the four. 2021 was definitely a much harder year.I like that the team took a flyer on a QB. I think they should do so yearly. Drafting him is clearly a flyer, though. I have no expectations that he will ever develop beyond a serviceable #2. There is no evidence that I have seen to believe that he will end up being viewed as a masterstroke selection. There is nothing special or transformative about him based on his history. He was a good, small QB on an average college team. His ceiling is Taylor Heckeini with a better arm.
My issue is that people act like scouts for NFL clubs don't know and understand this. They absolutely do and it is taken into account. I mean, if fans can figure it out...I'm sorry Chris that you think that way. You apparently didn't see him play much. This young man is much better than what you think.
