If his playing style is any indicator, when teams get Taylor in the film room and start asking him to diagram and break down film, he's going to bomb. So the fact that his mechanics, really is meaningless.
So b/c Tebow is possibly smarter means his low delivery, noodle arm gets a pass...
So if you're smart enough, the physical tools in the nfl are irrelevant?? You don't even get a shot if you don't have the physical tools, so the part you're arguing is whats more irrelevant.
But is Tyrod any more prepared for the NFL game than Tebow? I don't think so.
Right now, no, Tebow's been a senior, TT a rising senior. So Tebow would win experience, but TT would win a current NFL skills polish contest (plus he has another year to grow). His delivery is more textbook and he would run circles around Tebow. This is obviously a big reason for the combine, to nick pick the polish, or lack there of.
Tyrod can't throw from the pocket at all. He can't read defenses, and is only an effective passer when he's scrambling around and outside the pocket.
You did see the massive jump he made in being a real qb, staying in the pocket, reading defenses, running as a LAST resort??? Really he hardly ran this past year compared to earlier as fresh/soph. Why? Cause he finally has mastered the offense, the delivery, reading d's and most importantly, having an oline capable of making him not have to take off running so often. All you have to do is the eyeball test to see that. Let alone if you go check the jump in his numbers. And its not like hes gonna get worse with the talent VT's toting on O next year.
If you apply the Vick rules to him, confine him to the pocket, he's going to be an erratic 50% completions guy that can't see over the blockers, just like Vick. But the difference is that Taylor isn't going to come into the league with a 4-year grace period where teams don't know how to play him like Vick did.
Why would Vick rules apply? Cause he played at VT.
I wouldn't even compare MV and TT, AT ALL. Very, very different set of players. Everyone thinks theyre comparable cause TT can run so effectively, but thats about where the comparisons end. TT is already WAY more a rounded qb that Vick ever became.
At the end of the day this is about whats lacking for Tebow to transition to the NFL in my eyes. You aren't surprised that he doesn't have good command of some of the most basic principles of being a QB??? 3 step drops, 5 step drops, knowing when to throw the ball away, proper throwing mechanics.
Hypo -- If Tony Pike had these same troubles transitioning, and played at Cincinnati like he did, we would even know who Tony Pike was at this point? HELL NO. But since were dealing with the great Teblow, you actually have to "reconsider" what it takes to be an actual NFL qb.
