From CBS Sports:

Quote:
TJ Yates

Overview

Despite starting the previous three seasons, Yates entered his senior campaign fighting with Bryan Renner for playing time. Not only did Yates win the job, he earned Honorable Mention All-ACC honors as one of the more improved quarterbacks in the country.

His maturity and mental toughness throughout a season most Tar Heel fans would rather forget is sure to impress NFL teams. For Yates to earn a shot in the NFL, teams will have to be impressed with his intangibles, because his lack of ideal arm strength and accuracy makes him tough to grade as anything more than a late-round consideration.

Analysis

Positives: Cerebral quarterback who does the little things well. Extends his arm and carries out the play-action fake well. Possesses enough mobility and pocket sense to feel the pressure coming, step up to avoid it and buy extra time for his receivers to separate. Understands the offense. Shows the confidence and recognition to move defenders with his eyes and make his progressive reads. Good accuracy in the short to intermediate zones. Consistently throws his receivers open on underneath routes. Not a legitimate scrambling threat, but will take what the defense gives him. Has made steady gains throughout his career. Emerged as the unquestioned leader of this team amid plenty of off-field turmoil.

Negatives: Might be maxed out. Doesn't possess the size, athleticism or arm strength most teams are looking for in a developmental prospect. Only average arm strength and accuracy outside of the hashes.
Apparently Gary Kubiak sees things differently.

Default Re: TJ Yates- Reaction to pick

I watched a couple of NC games and he wasn't that good. If we were going to pick a QB, I'd prefer the kid for Alabama, Greg McElroy. I watched several of his games and he good QB. Reminds me of Berney Kosar; no arm strength, good head.

First pick I don't like.

Default Re: TJ Yates- Reaction to pick

They brought him up earlier on ESPN, Dilfer said he really liked the guy. He said his mechanics were a train wreck, but if a good team could develop him, he could see him turning into a Tony Romo type QB. I think Kubiak could work with him.

I forgot who said it, but it has been said that its not a bad idea to draft a qb every year in the late rounds. If one turns out and turns into a Kolb type situation (I know he wasnt late round, but has some demand), you have made it worth your while.

I watched him in a few games and he had some nice skills.

Accurate, good release, carried that team through all those suspensions.

In the 5th round? Sure why not

Well Kubiak and Smith must have taken over the draft again or Philips had to use the restroom and didn't get back in time for the pick.

A QB with no arm, great pick

Default Re: TJ Yates- Reaction to pick

First pick I dislike. I think he could develop into something, but there are safeties, defensive tackles, and linebackers on the board that I would rather have.

EDIT: Re looked at my board and notes. I cant change my vote, but I would change it to on the fence.

They loved him on ESPN just now. Dilfer just said he is the only sleeper/possible starter of the "backup" QBs available later in this draft.

Aw hell, I just listened to Mel Kiper and Trent Dilfer rave about this guy. Dilfer said Yates is special and is the one sleeper starter in the late rounds at quarterback.

Tremendous pocket awareness, escapability, and quick release.

From Dilfer's enthusiasm alone, I'm very pleased with this pick.

Default Re: TJ Yates- Reaction to pick

LOL @ the negatives listed for TJ Yates. "May have maxed out". That's the last thing I would say about TJ Yates. I saw him play for years at North Carolina and he improved dramatically over the years, maybe more than any other QB in the ACC. He's got a good head, and came up pretty clutch at times for NC. TJ Yates is a good player to develop if your Kubiak, as he has shown that he takes very well to coaching.

I like the player, no doubt. I just really like DeAndre McDaniel as a starting SS for us, but it's looking more and more like not many, if any teams agree with me.

I like it.

Dan O hasn't developed into the back up we needed.

New project sounds good and unlike Dan O he is not a huge project but a gem to polish.

Has all the upstairs stuff down, just needs some technique work.

I actually like this pick. Hopefully he can beat out Orvlosky by the end of the season and be our backup in case schaub goes down. ESPN and NFLN both had great things to say about him so if they like him then i like him.

Yeah, everyone says he has a noodle for an arm but I thought he made some decent long throws and gets a bit of zip as well.
