    He looks better than Lance and as good as Mac Jones in that video. Of course it's a highlight video.

    Some things I noticed in the vid:

    1) he release is lightning speed, even on touch passes. I don't think you'll see his arm getting swatted at. He gets rid of it in a hurry.

    2) he didn't look like a statue and even had eyes in the back of his head on a couple plays where he sidestepped defenders coming from his blind side.

    3) size is your friend. I know. That's what she said.

    4) his eyes and head are all over the field. He sees everything even going through progressions and coming back to his first option, and he does it in rapid fire motion.

    5) he seems to have poise and toughness.

    6) I saw Brady. No it isn't a comparison to skill, but he sorta looks like TB when TB came out in that he doesn't have much muscle definition (at least in his arms). I'd have loved to seen him at the combine just to see if it's true.

    I haven't noticed these intangibles in the other QBs even watching their highlight videos. I'd gladly take him in the second. 

    I swear I saw Brady too... He has the mindset that he wants to master his offense and he MASTERED Dan Mullins’ offense. I think in a stable organization he’s a star. I would love to have him on our squad IF we can get him.

    Nobody will want him on this board because he doesn't run.

    Even that scouting report looks biased against him.

    -statue in the pocket

    -not a running threat


    yea, those are the same, but he needed to come up with more weaknesses.

    I like running QB’s but only when they try to prioritize winning from the pocket first. I never been a fan of QB’s that ran EVERYTIME to pocket collapsed.

    Trask is actually more mobile than given credit for.


    Reminds me of a young Ben Rothlisberger before all the injuries. Remember when Ben was considered a threat with his legs at times?


    He wasn't Mahomes or Josh Allen by any means when it comes to using his legs, but both Ben was still dangerous at times for keeping drives going because he had a little get up and was a load to bring down. I think Trask is more of that and isn't really as much of a statue like he's being made out to be.

    Ben was pretty quick for his size. Ben’s best attribute was his ability to stand and sidestep rushers in the pocket to buy time. But yes, Trask’s mobility is underrated.

    I think this guy will be a steal. I also want to say that his name has been mentioned on this board before. I have and will continue to ALWAYS favor QB's with his skill-set; Cerebral assassins with great pocket presence and poise. His draft stock is considerably low because of his lack of mobility aka he's a statue in the pocket. To me? He's phenomenal manipulating the pocket, buying a lot of extra time for his WR's to get open. He reminds me of a young Matt Ryan, and if he's given the opportunity to sit and develop behind Matt? I'm 80% certain he would be a more than solid QB for this franchise. I love how this guy plays. 

    This guy alone is reason enough not to invest a top 4 pick into a QB. I would take him over Zack, Fields, and Lance. But hey, the game may be moving away from pocket QB's since they don't have the skill-set to win championships. 😅😅😅

    Let’s slow down on comparing him to Travis Kelce. Dude hasn’t taken a snap at an NFL level yet. A lot changes from college to NFL, regardless of where you’re projected. 

    Dude imagine Julio getting his hands on this dude and teaching him to run routes? If Julio can groom him as a route runner he could become an elite receiving TE early in his career.

    Not that I agree with that draft--at all. But you don't think we need a tight end? AS loves 2 TE sets and we need a second to Hurst than is better than what we got now

    I don’t why OP would get so upset at...


    Look, all I will say is this... OP and a LOT of other people on here undervalue the TE position and that’s fine. But, Kyle Pitts is potentially the Megatron of TE’s as a prospect; A once in a generation freak that if paired with a Matt Ryan? Won’t fail, and even beyond Matt Ryan, ensures that we will have a weapon that ALL ANALYSTS AND COORDS CONSIDER A SAFTEY BLANKET FOR young QB’s. This isn’t the last draft to get a QB like Fields or someone that would be undoubtedly better in the next draft.

    But you may not see a TE like Pitts for a long time.

    Dukes asked about Justin Fields. At first he said, we had a call with the local high school than he backed tracked and said, well we reached out to a couple of local hight schools. Says, he and his wife loves High Football. It's on the 92.9 the Game website, go listen if you want 

    I love High Football too. If Dey draft Fields at fo’ den Dey REALLY love High Football fa sho’.

  8. This isn’t too bold, because honestly it would be the logical pick. I worry about his short arms tho; recent history says that he will struggle to anchor against bull rushers because of his arms like Jake Matthews and Jonah Williams in Cincy. I would love to have an all-pro caliber tackle because that would add a year or two to Matt Ryan’s career. We must fortify the trenches if we are to do anything going forward.

    Easily, it was Jimmy Williams for me. I had strong connections with the coaches and program back then, so I got to see a lot more of Jimmy and other Hokies players than just about anyone besides the coaching staff. I really thought he was going to be a shutdown corner for us and I thought he would be a steal where we selected him.

    I was also quite possibly the biggest Vick homer around here. Even though Vick was a good player, he didn't reach the levels that I thought his athletic abilities suggested. He really was a generational type of athlete. 

    Crazy how I thought Jimmy would be “Richard Sherman” before Richard Sherman... Skill-Set was off the charts. I have no clue why he never developed...

    Haha, I still haven't given up on Ito. He feels kind of like pre-Shanny Freeman to me.

    I'm not saying he's an all pro but possibly a great 1b back like Coleman was here. He just needs to stay healthy. 

    Ito Smith is one of the best between the tackle RB’s I’ve honestly seen in a while. He shifts and finds holes that neither Gurley nor Brian Hill see. People so obsessed with Hill’s effort they don’t see who’s the most talented of the two and what upsets me is that due to some type of vanity about size (Ito is a smaller back) they would rather Gurley and Hill get all the carries when Ito has made something out of nothing more times than Hill and Gurley.

    Ugh. Falcons timing. A guy who could literally fix our pass rush problems (and other issues) on defense from day one, and we have no money to go after him. smh...

    I felt if we had Wade Phillips as D Coordinator the we could’ve had a real shot. But honestly he may wait till closer to training camp to sign with a team.

    With the 4th overall pick in the draft it would be malpractice for them not to attend his throwing session, even if they have no intention of drafting him. 

    Silly to try and read something into it other than them doing their job.

    I know right?

    Look at it this way, if Trevor Lawrence kills it? There is no way the Jags will trade the number 1 pick. It would take literal Football Jesus coming out of his tomb with Brett Farve’s Arm, Peyton Manning’s brain, Mike Vick’s scramble ability along with Cam Newton’s size/measurables declaring for the draft to not take Lawrence number one. Even then, Jets would take him number two lmao.
