A QB that holds the ball low... around chest level has to get the ball back behind his ear, then go through his forward motion. That takes time. A QB that holds the ball near his head should take less time.
Even if you have two QBs who hold the ball near the same position, one is naturally going to be faster than the other.
Then you have those guys with the big baseball wind-up...
TK, you missed the part where I said "It's not just the release".
