Default If YOU had the 1st pick in the draft....

Who would you take or who do you feel the #1 player is in the draft right now regardless of the fact that Detroit is taking?

For me right now Calvin Johnson is El Uno.

Russel. What if right....I think he is a big time prospect. After tonight, he's Big Al's #1. Best Arm since Favre. Best prospect since Marino.

I think Russell has a better arm than Favre did.

Did you hear what Howie Long said in the broadcast?

He can throw it 100 yards on his feet, 60 yards on a knee, and 40 yards sitting down.

It's a true statement about Russell, I've heard it many times by multiple players/coaches.

Bio: Surprisingly enough Joe Montana’s most amazing stat could be that he was selected in the 3rd round of the 1979 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers. The most successful post season NFL quarterback in NFL history was a master of late quarter comebacks and clutch performances.

Howwie said 85 on feet.

Either way it is impressive.

His 58 yard TD toss was off balence and scrambling. He wasn't even set and moving a different way and threw the ball almost perfectly 60 yards.

I go both ways at different times on this belief. I really just need to see a workout video of him doing it to believe it completely.

After tonight, what is it you don't like about the guy Kats ? He's improved every year. He goes through the motions, even with some bad mechnics almost effortlessly ? Big time arm ...Acurate, what is wrong with him ? Or is it just an LSU thingy ?

Default Re: If YOU had the 1st pick in the draft....

What Howie Long said about JR's ability to throw it 85 yards from a standing position is far from the first time a commentator has brought this up. It's standard fare whenever LSU is on tv. In one broadcast this year, the commentator (I don't remember who exactly) said he physically witnessed JR fling it like that. In fact, he asked him to throw from about the 20 as far as he could, and it landed at the goal line on the other end of the field. He's also thrown it 50 yards with one knee on the ground.

The guy's arm strength is just unreal. And his poise, judgment, accuracy and touch have improved considerably since his freshman year. He still has a brain cramp once in a while, but the guy completes 68 percent of his passes. At this point, I'd say the biggest improvement he needs to make is to secure the football better when two or more defenders are on him rather than try to force a throw. He's fumbled a couple of times doing that this year.
