  • Matthew Stafford: The Prospect

    Can anyone give me a scouting report of him? I know he cant come out this year.

    I just say like a 13 minute highlight reel of him and he looked really good. Maybe he can end the Falcon QB woes if we dont address them this draft.

    I just watched a reel of all incomplete passes, picks, and sacks! Didn't impress me in that video.

      I wonder why watching him at his worst didn't make him look good. =D

          Someone should seriously make a reel of bad plays also. Everbody looks great in a highlight, thats why its a HIGHLIGHT!

            From I've seen of him, Stafford definitely needs some work till he is NFL ready. His arm is big league tho...

              I'm not just saying this because I hate Georgia, but everytime I see him play he is terrible. Then on College Football Live they praise him and say how good he is. I believe he is one of the most overrated college football players out there.

                Its all about showing flashes of greatness early on, that will get people watching you later on in your college career.... all young players will make mistakes when they are younger, you just want to see this raw talent and play close attention to how they progress over the next couple of years.


                That said.... I like Stafford better then Tebow as a pro prospect

                  You can still evaluate a player based on their highlight reel. I was trying to see how his mechanics were, how he reacts with pressure coming to him.

                  I know its a biased view, but thats why I came here asking for what more on him.

                    I watched pretty much every game of his. He really doesn't put up big numbers, Georgia rushing attack outpowers the pass game. He started since his freshman year, so got experience. Is somewhat mobile, and can move in the pocket pretty good. Arm is deadly strong and pretty accurate, and has eyes looking downfield.

                      I'd like to see Stafford complete at least 65&#37; of his passes before I'm willing to consider him an elite QB at the college ranks.

                      That said, if he can do that, I would look for him to be fighting for the top QB selection next year, or the year after.

                      He's definitely a guy who should stay until his senior year. Of course, we'll see what happens after his junior season. We all know scouts love it when a QB has a ton of experience under his belt, and he played some his Freshman year, did decent in his Sophomore year and if he plays well the next two seasons he could be a big time QB. He certainly has the NFL arm you look for.

                      If he has a really good junior campaign I could see him coming out early since there will be a significant lack of good QB's that year. Especially if Tebow doesn't declare, because you figure he'd be the consensus top QB of the draft. It all depends on how he does his junior year though.

                        Stafford isn't a finished product, but he looked alot better then he did his freshman year. Everybody know's he has the arm strength. Stafford has played his best in big games and unlike the other QB's in the SEC hasn't padded his stats in OT or agianst small schools. If he improves as much as he did between his 1st and 2nd year year he could be gone. His &#37; did go up from his first year and he seemed to get better with the deep ball late in the year. Knowshon Moreno gave him a true playmaker something that was missing his freshman year. Part of the accuracy is not have a big window to make a throw since the WR get no sepration from DB. That could even help him out a little when he gets to the NFL. He still trust his arm to much at times. He is also doing a great job of chaning the plays at the line of scrimmage something you might have noticed in the bowl game.



                        When you look at how much he improved this year 3,000 yards, 25 TD, 7 int, 60% seem reasonable for next year.

                        Freshman year - Completed 52% of his passes for 1,700+ yards, 7 TDs and 13 INTs. Approximately a 1:2 TD to INT ratio, QB rating 109

                        Sophmore year - Completed 56% of his passes for 2,523+ yards, 19 TD and 10 INTs. a 2:1 TD to INT ratio, QB Rating 129

                          I watch all the Georgia games that I can as a fan and I can see he's not there yet. There is absolutely no question that he has an arm on him and in fact, he might be more pro-ready than Tebow when they come out because of the system he plays in. I think a good comparison right now is Ben Roethlisberger in that he isn't called on to light it up through the air and his team is based on the run. I really did not see the hype last year, but I can see a flash or two here and there now. It would do him well to stay until he's a senior and refine his game, Mark Richt is a great coach and he'll have him ready to make millions.
