I like the kid from Stanford, Tanner Mckee. I want my signal caller to be smart.
Stanford is not going to be confused with an SEC school in that regard.
He had the fastest average release time of any of likely to be drafted qbs at under 2.5 seconds. Stanford isn’t a one-read, spread style offense. He is also 6’6″ and 230# and projected to be available in the second round and maybe the third. He is not overly athletic by NFL standards and likely a dying breed of a pocket style passer, but that’s also why he isn’t going to go early. He has quite a few INTs but also had average to below average weapons he was trying to fit the ball into throughout his career.
I’m in the mindset of spending a Day 2 pick every single year on QB. The position is too crucial to NOT have, and mid to late round picks have produced starting NFL qbs while not being in a cap position to force them to play year 1. Whoever is headed to Carolina near the top of the draft could be in for a rude awakening with no weapons, a mostly new coaching staff, and high expectations to start early and produce results.
