Hall of Fame
It seems he may have already surpassed Jones over the past month. Mills has a solid foundation to build on going into the next season.I believe Mills has shown enough growth this season, that I could’ve easily seen him making a strong impact at Stanford this year…..and probably being the top QB coming into the 2022 NFL Draft.
That said, his growth came with a very limited Texans team that supported him with a questionable OL, no running game, and a predictable gameplan for defenses. I think Mills growth for next season is unlimited provided Caserio gives him an improved OL, running game, and an open playbook so defenses don’t come into games prepared to blitz. If this is accomplished….I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mills elevate his production to Mac Jones type of numbers in 2022. Depending on how Caserio handles the draft and free agency may determine if Mills surpasses Jones come 2023 or 2024.
I’ve got the same feeling about Mills that I had for Watson (the QB). I only hope that the team finally has an eye for putting the right talent around him…..something they failed horribly at for Watson.
