      Rotoworld’s QB Metrics for the 2nd tier of QBs is out. Sucks there is no Garoppolo. He said he couldn’t get every game and didn’t want to risk painting an inaccurate picture my only using the 8 games he did have for Garoppolo. :(  Still good stuff though.Tier 1 - http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/cfb/45952/349/out-of-the-box?pg=1Tier 2 - http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/cfb/46748/349/peshek-qb-metrics-20j8THHCO.jpg wyizzs0.jpgvg36RY0.jpg  UFWnqVj.jpgIgf9a2y.jpg  db0HWPQ.jpg

      yep, Bridgewater is clearly the best on film, and he’s showing up the best on stats. So how do people have him dropping? Bortles being drafted before him is something I wont understand if it happens.

      The biggest difference between the top prospects and the rest is how they perform under pressure.  And this supports all the concerns about Shaw after PR’s latest puff piece

      I like the balance of Shaw and Manziel as far as their distribution of passes. I like that quality in a quarterback, to just have that probability of unpredictability. For a defense, knowing the quarterback will try to put the ball anywhere on the field at any given moment can be scary and keep them honest.

      What jumped out at me is how McCarron, Murray, and Carr threw such a low percentage of 20+ yard attempts, and their completion rate for those attempts were awful. To me, that screams system QB that will only stand a chance in dink & dunk west coast style offenses. The deep ball is either none existent or far too inconsistent with those three guys. Also a bit shocking to see how many of these guy's completion % drops to 50 or below when pressured. Shaw and Boyd are the worst with 35% and 38%, which is kinda expected cause you see it on film. Not too surprised by Murray or Carr's 50% mark either....cause again you can see it on film. Mettenberger surprised me though. He seems like he is generally unaffected by the rush and steps up into traffic and delivers....so his 50% under pressure was a bit of a surprise.

      The top four QB’s are off the charts good.  Even the worst QB under pressure (Carr) projects to be better than half of the current NFL QB’s.  McCarron is a special case but I personally don't like his upside like the top four.  Manziel too me has become really underrated as a passer when compared to his peers IMO and I would be happy if the Bucs drafted him.1 of the top 4 QB's is going to be a Buc IMVHO.Like McCarron, Jimmy G is a wildcard.Not a fan of Mettenburg, Shaw or Murray but they would make for good projects.

      yep. But then you look at what happens to Shaw under pressure vs. Johnny under pressure and it is clear as day why one is a 1st round pick and one is a 7th round pick.

      I am not too concerned about Carr because he showed he has the arm strength and production in a previous offense that was more vertical.  The top four are pretty damn good and the differences between them are very tiny. Bortles not having the strongest arm but still having good production downfield is very good.Mettenburg knows where to go for his hot reads, but if there is unexpected pressure he is a statue and he doesn't make good decisions.  That is why I don't see why some want the Bucs to draft Mettenburg when the Bucs already have a similar player in Glennon IMO. Shaw and Murray are simply not NFL caliber starters but they could change with some coaching and seasoning.  Boyd is a lost cause lol.

      You should be. Other than Shaw and Boyd...Carr had the biggest drop in completion % under pressure. I think that pretty accurately backs up what you can see on film.....which is a guy that cannot handle pressure.

      To be considered top tier NFL caliber QB you have to be elite in the 11-20 range.Manziel and Bridgewater are the only two prospects to satisfy that criteria based on this data.  I just can't wrap my head around why people are so against Manziel IMO.

      Thanks for the lesson on what mobility means, but I knew that. That is why I said "he is not very elusive in the pocket" As far as him being Brady like with his fluidity....don't see it. At all. I can count on both hands the number of times I saw him look really slick and side step a rusher. He just doesn't have great functional mobility imo. He is solid when it comes to running a bootleg. He has the ability to roll out and throw on the run, but I think it's a little reverse racism going on to where people think because he is black he is automatically mobile. Simply not the case. I'd say his mobility/elusiveness is average at best. He's certainly no Brad Johnson type statue, but I'd say he is less than Andy Dalton or Jay Cutler when it comes to mobility/elusiveness. I've seen far to many instances of him rolling up in the fetal position when an unblocked defender comes flying through the line to believe he secretly has some great mobility that he hasn't used.

      Honestly the mobility thing isn't that big a deal to me if you have a solid passer, but it seems like Lovie is placing a premium on it

      TEDDY TEDDY TEDDY TEDDY TEDDYLaughable at how Teddy has fallen from Grace. Also explains the Aaron Rogers episode. I've been saying it for years. Draft position should be determined by game tape 95% and 5% interview. The rest is for fans.What kind of 40 time a guy runs 3 months after his last game has zero relevance. Oh no's, Teddy overthrew someone playing on an empty field in shorts. Teams who drastically shift their draft boards based on workouts in shorts, vertical jump, bench press deserve exactly what they get. Is he a baller? Is he a player?Back to me being right about Teddy as the best prospect. I again, claimed him the best QB in the draft no more than 8 hours ago after rewatching his bowl game. Word!

      You need to rewatch the Miami bowl game. In the 2nd offensive series, he shows you supreme mobility in the pocket, far beyond the reverse out JFF style. I'll elaborate you for, it'll paint a picture.Snap under center, 5 step drop. Teddy's RG gives up pressure to his play side very quickly, Teddy reverses out to the left side where he finds his LT has given up outside pressure. He then makes a quick cut, steps or rather runs upward in the pocket and hits  a wide open WR for an 8 yard gain. All that was done within the tackle box.Tell me more about his lack of pocket presence and mobility?JFF, feels pressure and does his Tebow reverse out during which he loses approximately 8-10 yards of depth while simultaneously throwing off all of his throwing lanes and angles to his WR.

      He’s not elusive in the pocket? Fooled me. There are a few times I've seen him tuck, but those aren't really mobility issues so much as they are hesitation - stayed with the play a bit too long and ate it. There are enough examples of him escaping pressure in the pocket for me not to have any concerns. He's not going to run for a ton of yards, but he can definitely escape and make plays. What's nuts about the pro day stuff is that most of the bad throws they keep showing on NFL Network are throws he makes constantly in games.

      And can’t you even argue tucking and turning fetal is a sign of pocket presence/awareness? In essence he’s showing that he knows someone is coming and the only thing he can do is protect himself and the ball. A QB without pocket presence would just sit there and get creamed not knowing it’s even coming.

      Well if you wanna talk awareness we can, but the conversation was about having great pocket mobility/elusiveness. Two different things. A guy that does actually "have wheels" like Manziel or Wilson, would put a spin move or a juke on the defender and go make something happen. Rolling up in the fetal position and taking the sack is smart for a QB that doesn't have the mobility to escape.....which was the point.

      I can't say how often or how many times Bridgewater turns fetal, but no QB is immune to getting hit. Defensive players get scholarships, too. Sometimes they do what needs to be done to get you and there's nothing you can do about it. Peyton Manning has great pocket mobility and rarely takes sacks, but he'll turn fetal here and there. It's a non-issue.

      I agree, but I can't help thinking some of that is part of that is system. Everything is so quick. From what I can tell he's the opposite of his brother in the pocket - he's a bit frantic with pressure, whereas his brother seemed to not sense it.

      Just give it up dude. JFF is a scrambler. Teddy is a pocket passer. To say JFF has pocket presence is a freaking joke. Pull up any game film on him and he's consistently leaving pocket or feeling pressure where no one is near him. You bagged on Glennon for it all year and it's exactly what JFF does. Just face it, he's more comfortable running to throw than standing in the pocket. That's not a good thing for a NFL QB.

      Lol. What Manziel has is beyond pocket presence. It's borderline "Spidey Sense" But hey, if it makes you feel better to pretend that isn't the case...then whatever floats your boat.It says a lot that you cannot discern a difference between a statuesque Glennon constantly moving diagonally backwards even when there is no real pressure, and what Johnny Manziel does. No wonder we can't find any common ground on QB prospects. You are obviously typing on a braille keyboard but I never realized before now that you are completely blind! My bad.

      Not cool, my uncle wears glasses!What Manziel has is some special elusiveness. It's not a pocket presence. When I watch Manziel he uses that ability to run, not pass. He feels cut backs, he can stop and start on a dime and feel guys behind him but he looks and acts uncomfortable standing in the pocket waiting for a WR to flash. That's why I say no pocket presence.

      It’s true Manziel likes to bail, like Jeff Garcia did, but what’s most important is when he bails, he is still thinking about passing the ball. He’s not just trying to scramble. He has good awareness for what is going on downfield.

      The question for me is will that be effective in the NFL over the long term? I'm concerned that it won't be. Improvison is something defense's have trouble with, but by nature it's also inconsistent and unpredictable.

      Not cool, my uncle wears glasses!What Manziel has is some special elusiveness. It's not a pocket presence. When I watch Manziel he uses that ability to run, not pass. He feels cut backs, he can stop and start on a dime and feel guys behind him but he looks and acts uncomfortable standing in the pocket waiting for a WR to flash. That's why I say no pocket presence.

      We can agree to disagree bro. I think when you cut out the crazy highlights of him running around being special......you are left with a solid pocket QB that looks comfortable shredding you from the pocket. He's always gonna be bouncing on his top toes and ready to run if need be. That is just part of his game.  Peyton Manning has the same happy feet in the pocket. He is never flat footed. It's not a negative.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1mHnNs6Ru8

      He's a good prospect. For me it boils down to a few basic points. One I just mentioned about breaking out of the pocket and improvising. The other is that when I watch him, sometimes he just looks more comfortable running and throwing. I think he'll need to be a pocket first passer to be successful and i'm not confident that he'll be able to. He has been good from the pocket but not as consistent as TB and that's why I'm screaming for Teddy.

      Garcia had a nice, long career. Some may say Tony Romo has a similar style.

      Lots of Manziel type QBs start out scrambling too much. They eventually settle in though and then they are truly dangerous because they will shred you from the pocket or run all over your face. With a pocket passer, you better hope he translates right away because if he can't and he needs time to adjust to the NFL, he can't buy time or improvise in the mean time. He'll just get destroyed and be horrible. And that usually ends in a loss of self confidence followed by a long career of backing up real QBs or collecting a check each year as a camp arm. Sure, I wish Johnny was a little bigger....but to me he is in that mold of Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Tony Romo, Brett Favre, Jeff Garcia, or Steve Young. Smart guys that can play from the pocket and do very well, but also have the ability to kill you with their feet if you manage to shut down the passing game. That's what I want. Pocket passing statues are a thing of the past imo. Even Andrew Luck is an outstanding athlete that can run around really well. In today's world, even QBs should be expected to be great athletes. There is really no excuse to not be a dual threat nowadays.

      plus he rates a zero in the swagger dept.  Manziel a 10.

      This, plus Manziel's numbers here look the best IMO.  Deep ball is the most important, if you can throw the deep ball well you have the tools to learn to do the rest.

      id take Manziel everytime over Bridgewater.

      I like Teddy over Manziel still but the gap isn't that big as people believe.

      Manziel"s running ability is the difference maker between the two.

      Sure is. Its the difference between a successful pocket passer and a guy who will be constantly injured thinking he can make a play with his feet without realising that the LB'ers are now faster than the DB's he faced in college. The stats show overwhelmingly why Bridgewater is a better passer and better under pressure. And I dont think Carr's issues with pressure can be fixed. Guys who cower from contact at the college level never ever make successful NFL QB's. I am convinced that Carr in any round is a wasted pick.

      Joke all you want but teams are using this type of data more and more and it does help. The Bucs actually hired a numbers guy recently to do exactly this kind of thing. Just like Pro Days and Combines and Senior Bowls and everything else....it's something you use to confirm what you saw on tape. Like Mayock says, all this other stuff besides tape either confirms your notes or creates a question. When you see these type of stats and it backs up completely what you saw on tape, it's just another layer of confidence in your draft board. Or if you see a number that you completely didn't expect, it might help you go back and catch something you missed.

      Nobody can dispute that Freeman had the physical tools, dude just lacked the mental makeup.  Manziel has the ability and also appears to have the drive to be the best which is more important IMO.

      If Manziel did not have super-freak Evans his deep ball numbers would be completely different. That is something that pro scouts will pick up on but message board number crunchers will fail to see. If you ask me JFF is all smoke and mirrors ... he is Josh Freeman circa 2010 or 2012. Take away Evans and he will become Freeman circa 2011 or 2013.

      If Tampa is going down more of a money ball path then even more reason to think they pass on QB.  The metrics dont favor on QB in this draft over what is currently on our roster.

      Teddy doesn't have wheels. He is not very elusive in the pocket and he had 164 total rushing yards in three years.

      I seem to remember hearing similar things being said of Alex Smith vs. Aaron Rodgers.  Not a leader, can't scramble, etc.  Not saying it's apples to apples, just believe Teddy is being thrown under the bus too much.

      Teddy B is clearly better. Vanilla Jdud mad.

      My best, most honest and objective assessment of the Teddy and Johnny is as follows:Both rip defenses. Both put up lots of yards and TDs. TB will rip you apart from the pocket and JFF will with his big play ability and improvising. That's a pretty fair assessment of both. Now we can squabble a bit about what words we'd like to use and some of the characteristics you can't measure. The choice comes to what style of offense you intend to play and who you believe can make his game transition the best. Answer it for yourself. Everyone knows my opinion well. Scrambling QBs can be successful, but at some point to win games over the long term you need to function at a high level in the pocket. I vote for TB, and have since we started talking months ago. I wouldn't be mad at this point with JFF as I do think he would be fun to watch. Either way, as soon as we draft a guy, i'm a fan because he's a buc!
