Not to mention, his play style is reminiscent of Manziel. He tends to bail from the pocket early, throw on the move, and force passes that shouldn't be thrown. He would be better served to return for another year and work on his pocket passing ability.
I think his coach getting fired may very well be the main reason. I am surprised he is leaving early for the same reasons you are.
He is very similar to Manziel, IMO. Not quite the athlete, but two inches taller and a slightly better passer. What I like most about him is that he has relied less on his feet and more on his arm each year. I also like that he has the closest skill set to Manziel in this draft but can be had way later. I would much rather take a risk on him in the 3rd or 4th than Manziel in the 1st.
