Takes what the defense gives him; doesn't force throws
Solid accuracy down the field
Absolutely outstanding timing; throws ball before receiver even gets into break
Lacks some bulk in his body frame
Extremely weak arm strength
Lacks agility and athleticism; can't evade a pass rush
Somewhat of a statue in the pocket
Floats deep ball a little too much
Not a very good passer on the run
Throws difficult routes - but with unimpressive velocity/talent
Highly limited skill set
Competitiveness hasn't been tested yet
Older than the average prospect (will be a 24-year-old rookie)
Summary: Pike projects strictly as a career backup in the NFL. He simply doesn't possess even an average arm to be a starter. Pike can be somewhat reliable since he makes great decisions and is highly intelligent, but he lacks a lot of talent, and you can't coach talent. I project Pike to come off the board between the third and fifth rounds.
Player Comparison: Todd Collins. Collins has a weak arm, but is an extremely smart quarterback and a reliable backup.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
