Let me ask a question: if Tyree Jackson DIDN'T play for UB, would people still be pounding the table as hard as they are for him to be drafted in the 6th or 7th to "sit behind Allen and Barkley to develop?"

 

If he didn't play for UB, I probably wouldn't even know who he is.  I don't spend much time watching MAC football or tracking MAC players.  Because he DID play for UB and the UB team was relevant the last couple of years, I saw him play several times and was able to develop an opinion that he is a raw but talented player who could be groomed to be a solid NFL backup.  He's seem to fit best in an offense designed for a tall, athletic QB with a strong arm who can run well, but might not have the greatest accuracy in the world.

Honestly not many.

 

Tyree is super unpolished... his mechanics are a mess.... BUT he does look to throw first now

 

AND

 

he is the biggest QB ever at the combine... and he has athleticism to boot... THAT TURNED HEADS

 

He has the biggest arm in the draft and can improvise, throw on the run and create... at 6’7 250

 

A more realistic comparison to me would be a Colin Kaepernick ... Colin a touch faster with better short accuracy... Jackson bigger with a better deep ball

 

Coaches always think they can correct the mechanical flaws and such... you can’t teach 6’7 250 with those legs

No way do I waste a 5th round pick on him.  7th round or UDFA.

 

Forget about that.  Tyree Jackson will be wearing a Patriots jersey way before the fifth round.

Why?  The Pats seem to value accuracy, which is not Jackson's strong suit.

Dude is freaky big and athletic.  Brady is going to be around at least two more seasons, so they can afford to make Tyree a project.

 

You can coach just about everything else, but there’s one thing you can’t coach - how to be 6’7”.

Nothing wrong with brining him in. He’s the type of prospect who I’d have concerns about even if he played in an elite conference. The fact that he played in the MAC concerns me further about his ability to develop. If I’m drafting a MAC QB, I want a guy who dominated the conference. Average MAC QB’s never succeed in the pros, and may even need to change position like Edelman.

Tyree is better than a lot of people think... I wouldn't mind seeing him in the 5th-6th... He's not a TE... Not built like one at all... He can make tough throws, and get himself out of Trouble... A shaky starter like Jameis Winston for example could lose his job to a kid like Tyree.

Late rd flyier.  With a vertical passing attack having a poor man's version of your Qb makes sense.

James O’Hagan 

He isn’t small For a modern LBr...  but he is slow...

 

 and the MAC has produced really good football players... you obviously don’t watch much MAC ball... that’s a lazy assessment that the MAC can’t put out ball players

 

Where did I say MAC can’t put out ball players. I used the MAC to talk level of competition. Not hard to see Competition in the ACC, PAC12 SEC is a lot higher than Competition in the MAC

716..first thing I thought..MajBobby reads national bs..I highly doubt he watched him/Bulls 5 times this past year on ESPN 3 plus. You and Promo are UB sports gods..almost near my level.

 

What I did watch is a 5.0+ 40 from a LBer but hey slob away 330 Lineman are faster.

No one knows for sure what will happen with Anderson after camp.

Whether a 4th arm comes to camp or not I do think it would be advantageous for the Bills to bring in a strong armed QB to camp.

Mimicking hard thrown balls from a scrambling QB would help the WRs in my opinion.

 

So Jackson OR a guy like him is OK with me.

As all UB fans know..he's loaded with raw talent but can somebody teach him how to take criticism..that's the question.IMO,he should have stayed for one more year to grow....how can he do that as a team's number 4 ? He could very well end up being a cut/release guy over and over,maybe playing for three/four teams before a final release from the NFL.I hope I'm wrong about him,Bear.

He's 21 but he's going on 18 because of his attitude.

I didn't realize this was an issue..............thanks 'sky.

Playing one more year is always a tough choice for these kids.

One more year playing at UB could of changed his draft projections for 2020.

Here is probably his best game from last season. Too bad he couldn't keep this up all year. Johnson being injured didn't help.

That's Dennis Rodmanesque.

 

In all seriousness, has a "project" QB EVER worked out? I guess you could say Jimmy G, but that's a reach.

 

Jackson seems like a really good kid, but that windup is just too much for the NFL. Maybe he's TOO tall.

I wouldn’t classify Jimmy G as a project QB... besides coming from a small school he was super pro ready with a lightning quick release 

 

and I would say yes, some project QBs have worked out but not many...

 

Cam Newton was no where near my #1 player in the draft and a huge question about how he would adapt... he was just super physically gifted 

 

our own Josh Allen was a project... and was starting to flash

Honest question and I’m not calling you racist (don’t know you and you seem like a good dude with bad football takes 😉) but have you ever liked a non white qb? I honestly don’t recall any and you love some terrible white qbs.  I’m genuinely asking.

It’s not just you but it’s insane how people underrate Cam.  He dominated on every level, including the best conference in college.  I would have been shocked if he didn’t become a franchise guy.  Clearly he has his flaws but the dude is a baller.

I think Kaepernick fits project qb.  It also depends what qualifies to be a project qb. IMO, Allen is a bit of a project qb.

Just because he dominated HS and college didn’t mean he would dominate the pros...

 

tons of guys were superstars in both and nothing in the league

 

Cam definitely had a chance to fail for a myriad of reasons but overcame and developed
