    But Jeff is very accurate with the football.[/QUOTE]

    :laugh: Wow just wow

    Under 150 yards passing per game last year and 2 tds to 3 picks this year. Driskel was like a butcher the way he cut through defenses with his pin point accuracy. Yep teams will be lining up to make Driskel their franchise QB.

    Are you serious? More accurate Qbs usually throw for more yards. As for your pro prospect comment... so what? Just because he's big and has a strong arm that makes him a pro prospect? Because that's all you need to play in the NFL right? Danny Wuerful and Mathews weren't much of pro prospects either, but they were a million times better than Driskel. Driskel wont sniff the NFL unless he changes positions.

    Seriously if the fact that Driskel is big,strong,and athletic makes Driskel a pro prospect, then that would make him a better "prospect" than half the starters in the league. If he can catch I think he would be a good TE prospect though.

    What football games have you been watching the last few years? We dont really throw the football. Nobody said a strong arm makes him a pro prospect. What was said is Driskel is more of a pro prospect than Leak ever was which it true. Jeff is accurate with the football.

    Unless you only throw it 20-25 times a game. Do you watch football? He was passing for about 70 % completions last year and we as a team had only 4 turnovers going into the UGA game last year. If a guy goes 25 of 50 for 500 yards that's 50% versus a guy who throws 18 of 24 for 200 yards. Half the yards as the guy with 500 but much more accurate .

    So you honestly believe that if we would have throw the ball more he would have had the same accuracy? I just respectfully disagree with this The style of offense can skew completion percentage. He had a high completion percentage because he almost never through more than 10 yards down field. Marcus Mariota's completion percentage is down this year b/c they are allowing him to make more vertical NFL type throws. Mariota is way more accurate than Driskel.

    So with your logic completion percentage is the sole factor for accuracy. So when scouts make an evaluation the guy with a higher completion percentage automatically gets the check for being more accurate? That's ridiculous. Stafford never has a high completion percentage so you think he is less accuracy and arm talent then Driskel? C'mon now. All of Mike Leech QB's had extremely high completion percentage as well yet they never got a sniff @ the next level.

    I just dont considering hitting a 5 yard drag or an 8 yard hitch as showing great accuracy. Just my opinion
