We’ll see. I’m skeptical. Small sample in college & not a great protector.

Fair enough. The pre-draft hype is very similar imo. But hopefully he lives up to it unlike Jordan. Feel the need to add the overall point was more about his rushing being the key to his success & not his comfort in space.

At the time I thought Julian Peterson was the better comp. More of an off-ball LB with multiple skills. But obviously that was much too high too (although off-field & MIA pegging him as a 4-3 DE were clearly factors in him failing also).

People said that about Jordan too though. Many thought he was the best player in the class (albeit an awful class in hindsight). Miami traded up from like 13 to 3 for him. He got Jason Taylor & Von Miller comps from some....

Allen’s production & play strength are better than Mingo’s coming out. He was largely in that contain role at LSU but didn’t really have a rush plan at all. Nobody talked about him as a cover player like they did with Jordan/Allen.

If he’s not a great rusher he won’t pan out. Hate to be blunt but it’s the facts. Dropping to the flat or carrying seam routes isn’t getting him his 5th year option & a big 2nd deal. 🤷🏻‍♂️ But maybe he adds to his rushing repertoire, as some of the other edge prospects have.

Might sound crazy but so much of the discussion surrounding Josh Allen this pre-draft process reminds me of Dion Jordan in 2013. 1st thing someone should talk about with an edge player is their rushing ability. Coverage & versatility (unless interior rushing) aren’t the keys.

I recognize now I should’ve liked Mayfield more, trusted advanced stats that pointed to him. I see a lot of similarities with Murray when studying him & I’m not ignoring the again just because he threw to some wide open guys in a great offense. Agree due to sample size BM>KM.

What?! D was sooo much better with Joe Schobert on the field. He was noticeably missed when injured.

Plenty of people said Mayfield looked awful vs Georgia. They said he was “spooked” too. & plenty of smart people who were actually impressed by the Bama game Murray played.🤷🏻‍♂️ I was a Darnold guy too but I’ve learned a lot in the past year & still like him plenty.

For sure. Sample size & his dedication long term can be questioned. But if someone didn’t question Mayfield’s surroundings they shouldn’t do it with Murray.

Murray resets extremely quickly imo. Effortless quick release as soon as he wants to let it rip & ball explodes out of his hand. Can layer it w/ anyone. I agree he’s slower progressions than BM but still better than probably like 90% of recent QB prospects as a total package.

Of course. But that’s not what Ben is arguing. He’s making the same points people made a year ago to detract from Mayfield.

Didn’t happen against Murray or Mayfield at Oklahoma & didn’t happen against Mayfield in year 1 NFL. He was hit like 5 times from week 9-week 17. He’s still getting depth in his drops just like in college. Tackles can set deeper for QB that gets more depth.

You’re saying the same stuff people (myself included) said against Mayfield last year. Confuses me a lot you’re mentioning this stuff about Murray but never said it about Mayfield. Wide open throws, spacing in route concepts, depth in drops, great talent advantage. All the same.

& Dorsey talked about Mayfield getting depth in his drops to benefit his vision in the first presser after they drafted him. Getting depth is good, especially for QBs who are shorter. It’s not a “schemed” thing either. Both guys lined up around 5 yards deep in the gun.

There was a lot that went into it but it’s so far in the past no point in discussing.

Yes. Only draft by Banner/Lombardi was 2013. They didn’t get another.
