Hey guys. I come in peace. I'm a Draft analyst for Universal Draft and the South Florida Sun Sentinel. I post a lot of work in those two places as well as various Miami Dolphins-based websites such as Finheaven.com, ThePhins.com and FinsNation.com. Last year with the South Florida Sun Sentinel we did several QB profiles on guys like Cam Newton, Christian Ponder, Ryan Mallett, etc. They got some national publicity from people like Peter King, Dan Patrick, Michael Lombardi, etc. I even ended up on the NFL Network discussing one of them. I just thought I'd share with you this look back at two scouting reports on T.J. Yates that I wrote back in December 2010 and March 2011. You might find them informative, or not. I know that there's got to be this sense that Yates kind of came out of nowhere, in the sense that it seems like nobody believed in him prior to the Draft. Certainly he never got any respect on the boards of guys like Mel Kiper, Todd McShay, or even Chad Reuter/Rob Rang or Wes Bunting. I don't believe quarterbacks come from nowhere. Guys that truly come from nowhere and never had anyone pounding the table for them, they are in my opinion usually just flash in the pan guys. That's why I'm posting this for you guys...to show you that some people DID see franchise quarterback potential in T.J. Yates and have been talking about it for over a year. I see recently that the Bengals claim that if they missed out on Andy Dalton, Yates would have probably been the guy they target. Bill Polian claims they had Yates targeted but the Texans took him before they could. http://www.universaldraft.com/2011/12/11/a-look-back-qb-t-j-yates-of-north-carolina/ I'm not trying to hawk traffic. I'd like to post the full text of the article right here in the thread but character limits are preventing me from doing so...so instead I'll post some excerpts... And here's a video I created on Yates last year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36vRZG9ntgc Enjoy.
