Cardinals HC Bruce Arians at the Combine referencing Manziel...
Quote:
"When you start comparing quarterbacks, and (for) all of us it's a comparison business when you start doing the draft and everything else, who has been successful with these measurables, what intangibles does he bring," Arians said from the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis Friday. "With those guys, I go back to Doug Flutie, and it took Doug a long time to become a very successful quarterback in the league at that size and that athletic ability."

Looking at some of the successful short quarterbacks, Arians said Manziel's style is different from that of Saints QB Drew Brees -- who is also a little taller -- but added that Seattle's Russell Wilson, who just won a Super Bowl, is helping to show that short quarterbacks can get the job done.

"I think they are starting to see some guys they can compare him to, but there's a bunch of 6-5 successful guys who are athletic," he said. "The 5-11 guys, it has to throw a question mark out there."
...

"He's very natural at what he does and you don't want to take a guy's insticts away because that's what got him here," Arians said. "I think the guys like Russell hurt you more when they drop back to pass, and Colin (Kaepernick)...they hurt you when they drop back.

"Now when you design runs for them you're putting them in harm's way because the guys chasing them are a lot bigger and faster than the ones chasing them in college. But to take the natural instinct away from drop back passing to scrambling and going, you never want to do that."

Posted this in the wrong thread:

The weigh-ins aren't exactly surprising

With Teddy and Johnny, you have two guys that had size questions so you know that they are going to add weight before the combine. Those numbers lead me to believe that they played between 5-15 pounds lighter during the past college football season, which is about what I expected.

if Bill O'Brien passes on Blake Bortles, Blake Bortles will only continue to do to Bill O'Brien what Blake Bortles did to Bill O'Brien in State College PA in Beaver Stadium on September 14, 2013.

Besides working out in the weight like mad, I guarantee you that both amended their diet drastically to get to their Combine weight.



Expect them to both drop like rocks by the time they are drafted.

You look to something like this, at most, to inform you of shortcomings you've seen in his game tape. Matthew's tape is pretty solid. Could he need to get NFL stronger? Sure, most do. But I'd plug him in without hesitation. ( Part of my confidence is I know what his mental makeup and story is because of his daddy & because he played in College Station.)
