Bradford may read defenses (and I haven't seen the proof of this) but he can't throw it past the line of scrimmage. But to be honest: McCoy, Bradford, and Tebow do not really read anything - the spread was designed to overload the defense by s-p-r-e-a-d-i-n-g the defense out along the line.

The offense attacks - not necessarily any specific defense - but rather always try to create mismatches. Sometimes a defensive player or defensive characteristic is attacked...but not so much reading of defenses is going on.

These guys are very difficult to rate because they have arrested development - college QB's & WR's are really confusing - as they don't read prior to snap, they pretty much walk up to the line and focus on delivering the Ball to a specific WR...very different than than the NFL. Spread QB's stats are said to be "inflated" by yardage gained by flooding zones with several receivers and throwing to the crowd. It's almost like saying; "...someone on our side will come down with it..." That success can't translate to the NFL. Spreads are known as "Pass Happy" for a reason - but it isn't run by a lot of teams consistently in the NFL - also for a reason.

It's why it's preferable to take a QB from a pro-set with average, yet real, numbers - than a run-n-shoot QB with inflated, fake, numbers.

It's why we did just that.
