While there is no such thing as a bad walkon, expecting contribution on gameday is a little pie in the sky.
I have watched both the 2012 and 2013 highlight tapes and will offer this: He will be the least athletic kid we have on the depth chart at QB. I have doubts about his arm strength, although I like how catchable and careful his throws are. With that said, this kid really really knows how to run this offense. He is already better in that department than anybody we have put on the field in the CPJ era. His eyes are always in the right place and he has a great feel for the MESH. Most of his highlights were keeps after the first read. I would like to have seen more pitch reads. For those who couldn't stand Tevin, I'm not sure how much you will like this kid. He might even be slower than TW, in fact, I think he may actually be, but he has good vision, makes great reads, sells his fakes really well, and can make some people miss. Obviously his instincts and sense of anticipation, running our O, are very good. If nothing else, I think he will help some of the other guys get better.
We run a 'pick your poison' offense. The D will force the weak link to beat them. A slower, weaker-armed Tevin doesn't sound like the answer to our prayers. That said, there's no harm in seeing what the kid can do on his own dime.Doesn't matter how athletic he is if the kid can run the offense and get 4 yards a play. I have no problem with the death marches.
- couple weeks before signing day
- why talking about anyone besides walk on QB?
- assume we want to get best players possible on team
- missed reading your rule regarding the issue
