I think the jury is still out on whether or not he can be a franchise quarterback. Franchise quarterbacks need to show more diverse and advanced passing ability than we are seeing from him this year, or atleast than I am seeing. I think he stays another year under Mora. That would be best for his NFL career.
Against Stanford, he was 24/39 193 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs.
Against Oregon, he was 13/19 64 yards, 1 TD 2 INTs.
Last season in two games against Stanford he was 43/69 438 yards, 1 TD 2 INTs.
A first round quarterback needs to be better against top level competition, simply put.
