What a miserable end to the Dolphins season! Actually what a miserable season. Hmmm…Let’s see if I can line up Buffalo in my sights….
Ehhh…Whats the point? It’s already a dump! There is nothing this astro cannon can do that they can’t do to themselves or haven’t done to themselves…
May as well start thinking about the NFL draft and get ready for 2018. And let’s start with the top – let’s start with the Heisman Trophy winner, Baker Mayfield.
Okay, settle down Tannehill lovers. I’m just looking at all options. Besides….we never draft the guys I look at anyway…so this is probably a blessing.
The Positives: If you don’t know about Mayfield by now – WAKE UP. There is a reason he won the the Heisman Trophy. He’s been dominating College Football this year and has Oklahoma competing for a National Championship (at the time this is written).
Just look at his numbers. Over 14,000 yards in four years (including his first year at Texas Tech), 129 Touchdowns and only 29 interceptions with a career passer rating of 176.00. Mayfield had 40 touchdowns in 2016 and 41 in 2017. Mayfield is probably the best Oklahoma QB since Sam Bradford and some experts since he is a better pro prospect.
He is 8th on NCAA all time passing yards and 6th in touchdowns. His 2017 QB rating is first in NCAA history surpassing his 2016 QB rating which is 2nd all-time.
We can go on forever about his stats – they are impressive. But beyond the numbers, Mayfield is confident and competitive and loved by his teammates.
Weaknesses: Okay…I know he’s smallish. He’s listed at 6’1 and might be even smaller. Although he has been durable at Oklahoma, some question whether at that size he can be that durable in the pros.
He’s not a great athlete either. He’s not a bad one – he’s just not going to make heads turn if/when he runs the 40 at the combine.
Oh – and then there is the attitude. He’s a crotch grabber…I guess Mayfield comes off a bit cocky. I’ve even seen him compared to Johnny Manziel. YUK!
The Alien Dust: He’s a gamble. What front office will take that gamble? There are many great college quarterbacks that don’t produce in the NFL. Mayfield is smallish and has that personality that gets under some human’s skin. But not this alien.
I actually love him. I think h has a chance of being a great NFL QB. His consistency in college should not be ignored. He’s a natural passer with great pocket presence and does a great job of improving when a play breaks down.
That confidence doesn’t bother me. This alien thinks a lot of humans may regret passing on Mayfie;ld. Currently I’m hearing he is the 4th ranked QB behind Rosen, Darnold and Allen – but this is a weird draft, and a QB like Mayfield of Jackson (Louisville) may not get selected as high as the other quarterbacks – but still have a better career. The QB prospect analysis always has had inconsistent results.
But the inability to predict success won’t stop this alien from comparing Mayfield to an alien weapon of destruction. Mayfield is the lethal Astro Cannon!
