He can throw on the run, has good accuracy, and he has great arm strength, some of the throws I have seen him make about 55-60 yards in the air alone. That's the kind of arm that can get AJ 10+ TDs a season. It's early though, and 2012 looks to be a terrible year for Arkansas, so maybe the Texans can get him with their 1st and not have to move at all. Hopefully that no talent overhyped QB at OU shoots up the boards for some unsuspecting team to take him.

Great post, thanks for all the info.
Let's say that he gets hurt this year (heaven forbid)... or the Petrino thing really makes the team stink. In the SEC, they could go out & only win 9 games.
Would that change your mind on how good the kid can be?
I ask, because we've seen it happen. Not just to QBs... worked out pretty good for us with Arian Foster. But most of the time, a poor showing their senior season, regardless the cause...... leads to a poor career.
