Josh's back story is what had me so intrigued at draft time, he was/is a "black swan". A prospect with gold jacket tools, who for many reasons did not benefit from the grooming process a typical top QB pick goes through. Small rural HS, no elite camps, no specialization (multi sport athlete), late bloomer physically (see facial hair). Thus the complete lack of interest from Div 1 and the resulting Juco/Wyoming path. I think this is where data driven analytics failed with him as a prospect? His development process in no way matches the typical players that generate the data. I'm no expert so maybe models try to account for that but it seems like a reasonable assumption.
It all depended on the situation he landed in, but more importantly on him. I was comfortable with this regime's ability to determine if he had what it takes to turn those tools into reality on an NFL field. Luckily for us fans, it's looking like that faith is being rewarded. He is proving to everyone that his work ethic, willingness to improve, and motivation are off the charts. Add all the other intangibles he exhibits and what more can we ask for?
