2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Matt Stafford Profile
Strengths: Average height, but has great bulk ... Born with a rocket launcher for a right arm ... Throws the ball with a nice, tight spiral consistently ... Puts great touch on fade routes ... Displays a compact release ... Secures the football in the pocket ... Plays in a pro-style offense and is well coached ... Has a lot of experience against top competition as a 3 year starter ... More productive in junior season than he was in past ... Upside warrants a top three pick.
Weaknesses: Drop could be much quicker ... Sluggish footwork at times ... Throws off his back foot more than he should and it leads to poor accuracy ... Puts too much zip on the football on intermediate and crossing routes ... Doesn't sell the play action as well as he could ... Not going to elude pressure in the pocket, but does a decent job of moving the chains with his feet ... Doesn't show an understanding to audible into the correct pass protection or diagnose coverages.
Summary: Coming into his junior season, Stafford was not statistically impressive, but he managed to put together several highly productive games... In an offense without many short and intermediate routes, which is difficult for a quarterback to operate in. His production is impressive considering the offensive system ... The favorite to be taken No. 1 overall.
Player Comparison: Jay Cutler. Both players have rocket arms with the tendency to force throws into double coverage and extremely tight windows.
Ik a lot of people are saying the 49ers will take a qb, but there is no way we should take one right there. He will just be unsuccessful. I really like solomon Thomas and i think he would be a great pick.Right now he doesnt seem like the #2 pick but his stock is going to continue to rise. Hopefully we can trade down a few picks and pick him and select a qb in next years loaded class. If we arent able to land thomas i wouldnt mind going mike williams or corey davis
DARRAIN WINSTON (Baker Kansas)? Should look at him. Had 54 tackles 2 TFL 10 INT 21 PBU 2 FF & 2 FR. How are you missing all these players at all these different positions? There's so many players at so many positions that you miss. Only way you seem to notice them is if we point them out.
Pre-Combine and Pro Day mock draft for the 2017 NFL Draft. Since the season isnt done yet there are still plenty of moves to take place before the draft so these selections could change. This years mock draft is the second I have done. Last year I created one, and while it was awesome, alot of teams shook it up early and nearly nobody could have predicted what happened. Im back at it again with a what I would do draft as of now and after the combine and pro days wrap up I will change it to what I think will happen. I hope everyone enjoys this and gets an idea of the prospects many people have their eye on as my draft is based off mostly what I have heard from scouts. Admittedly, as the prospects go, my words of praise for the prospects get a lot less. Enjoy!
