Mac Jones literally 1 year ago.

 

Matt Stafford just won the Super Bowl. If Strong is an "immobile pocket passer" then so is Stafford, who is the reigning SB winning QB and is headed for the HOF after a few more strong regular seasons. Stafford leans toward the "immobile" side of NFL QBs, as does Strong.

 

Strong has elite pocket awareness and pocket manipulation. Pocket manipulation has nothing to do with athleticism.

 

 

Mac Jones = #15 overall pick in 2021

 

Old-school coach Belichick drafts old-school QB in Top 15.

 

Now take Mac Jones' body, and attach Justin Herbert's right arm to it - you get Carson Strong. 

 

Strong is Mac Jones with Arm Talent. Basically, he's a much more talented Mac Jones.

 

Carroll = Old-School Coach

Strong = Old-School QB 

 

Put 2 and 2 together.

Matthew Stafford is not making the HOF. Other than that, great take.

Getting this thread back on track after yesterday's madness...

 

Call this an anti-sleeper, if you like, but Jalen Wydermyer is absolutely worth a late round dart throw. There's plenty to be concerned about with this kid, and it's probably not unfair to say he's likely to be nothing in the pros, but clearly there is (or was) something there. Maybe he needs to grow up? Maybe he was hiding an injury? Maybe he doesn't actually love the game, or to the point that the above link makes, maybe he's just not in peak physical shape and/or didn't refine his testing techniques. Any/all of those could be true, but if you can untap his potential, he could be an absolute bargain with a 6th or 7th round pick.

I have a 5th on him. I agree there is something there. His tape was super disappointing but if you are going to take a swing on day 3 he is a candidate to do it. 

 

I would go as far as saying the Bills will definitely draft a tight end somewhere this year. They have zero under contract for 2023. That is a "Carson Strong top 10" level guarantee. :D

My sleeper: Erik Ezukanma WR Texas Tech

 

Living in Lubbock (TTU pays me to teach biochemistry), I am watching every Texas Tech game. Erik has good size (6'2" to 6'3", 210 to 220, depending on the source) but plays even stronger, fighting for YAC with defenders hanging on to him. He is the best WR Texas Tech had since Michael Crabtree (admittedly, so far he has not reached Crabtree's level). He was a clear day 2 candidate after the 2020 season. An injury and the atrocious pay of the Texas Tech QBs in 2021 dropped his stock.

Tyquan Thorton WR might be a steal on day 3 

I think because of his speed he gets selected in the third round. I would be happy if we took our chance in the third round

One other is Isaiah Likely from Coastal Carolina. I study their stuff and have stolen a bunch of their plays for my high school team. That dude can play. Reminds me a bit of Charles Clay before we signed him and he started to suck. 

 

Isaiah Likely looks FAST on tape but he ran a 4.8 40 yard dash which is pretty bad for him, hopefully it drops him in the draft because he looks like a weapon.

QB Carson Strong

 

Best QB in this draft class by a mile. A true NFL Franchise QB.

 

NFL comp: Carson Palmer with the clutch gene

 

Draft ceiling: #6 to Carolina

Likeliest destination: #9 to Seattle

Draft floor: #11 to Washington

 

Top 11 pick on April 28th.

@FFadpecr your day has arrived! Still feeling this confident in Strong???

I like to look back at those “way too early next year mock drafts” that everyone posts like the day after the draft. He was the projected first round tight end before the season. So its projection. Bills have shown interest and it is totally worth a late round shot.

Something's up with him, so certainly interviews may nix him entirely, but he's got talent, fix the other stuff and you've got a low investment chance at something solid.
