That's the first time I've seen the poise he demonstrates on the field in this draft process. Get him into his element, into the game... that's where he's comfortable and where he wins.
I actually watched that live. I was very impressed with how he gave a short breakdown of what he's looking at pre snap. I was also surprised when he appeared to say that he adjusts his protection after the ball has been snapped.

I think he meant he gives a dummy count to see if the defense adjusts when they think the ball is being snapped. If they do, he adjusts protection again before calling for the ball for real.

Adjust protection after the ball has been snapped. Dam that is impressive. He is smart.

He did state that he has a call post snap to adjust the protection to the pressure side , seems that would have to be made very quickly after the snap ....

I think it's a pretty common call. It goes something like, "Son of a Btch!!"

I think we heard Blaine Gabbert use a variation of that except he was already running out of bounds. "Whoa, there, $$$$$$!"

No, No.


He said he gave a "ringo" or "lucky" call after the ball is snapped to "re-direct" his offensive line if he gets unexpected pressure.


The offense I played in, in college was pretty sophisticated...but we didn't have any post snap calls...None...

The way TB explains it, he would make that call almost as soon as the ball was snapped. After he took his first step which is his "read" step. If he sees the safeties rotating, coming down..He knows that he might be getting pressure from that side so he makes the call if he has time.

Seems like a pretty watered down explanation overall, but you can tell he knows his stuff.

After watching it again, you're right. I glossed right over him saying that. I just assumed he meant after a dummy count because I've never heard of that.

Teddy Bridgewater or Blake Bortles?

By Bill Barnwell for Grantland
Quote:
...
It will take courage and conviction for a team at the top of the draft like Jacksonville or Oakland to look past Bridgewater’s bad day to draft the guy who looked like he was the best quarterback prospect on most fall Saturdays during the past two years. And even then, that team might be wrong; it may very well turn out that the process correctly reveals Bortles to be a better option than Bridgewater. But I’m very suspicious that the process isn’t asking — or answering — the questions an NFL team should be interested in.

Came here to post this, it's a pretty decent piece that brings up good points about what teams can and cannot see during the pre-draft process.

I don't understand articles like these, or opinions that are similar.

"He had a bad pro day, so what, look at the film!"

Well, all the guys look good on film. That's why we're talking about them. They make it sound like Teddy looked good on film & the other guys looked like poo. But that's not the case. They all have good film & at least Bortles so far, had a good combine, & a good pro day as well.

There's a huge difference between over the air broadcasts and coaches film. If you want to see the difference just go find some of the All 22 film of NFL games and compare it to broadcasts. You can find Texans games in this format on a very small subforum on texanstalk if you look hard enough.

As far as I know, coaches film for NCAA games is not available to the average joe like it is for the NFL.

OB said he thought TB's pro day was good. He said he saw that he'd worked on his footwork, and tightened up his release. He also said that you shouldn't have balls hitting the ground throwing to WR's you've been working with. But he said he saw some positive things at his pro day.
