All Aboard!!!....The Jimmy Garoppolo Bandwagon

cropped_Jimmy-Garoppolo-Christopher-Hane

 

Shrine Week: Builds a buzz all week during practices showing a quick release, strong arm and great decision making skills only to top it off with a 9-14, 100 yard, 1 TD performance. 

 

2013: Walter Payton Award Winner, led the nation in Passing yards (5,050) and TDs (53). 12-2 Record.

 

*4 year starter

*6'2 230 lb. 

 

from nfldraftscout.com

 

 

ANALYSIS
STRENGTHS: Good, not great, height, body type and hand size. Better than adequate arm strength with a snap release that produces some juice. Live arm with his experience coming from a pass-happy offense.

 

Excellent passing vision with quick eyes to scan and a quick, natural delivery. Smart and executes the offense well. Quick intellectual process on the football field. Above average timing with little unnecessary movements and very good pace in his set-up.

 

Quick feet to evade pressure with the pocket mobility to move his lower body with his eyes focused downfield. Gets "happy feet" at times, but shows the ability to reset. Very good touch and overall placement with improved accuracy to all levels of the field throughout his career.

 

Level-headed and always under control with a strong leadership presence. Confident thrower and short memory. Elite career production as a four-year starter at the FCS level.

 

WEAKNESSES: Lack of elite velocity will show on some NFL throws. Needs to continue to improve his decision-making and not allow pressure to severely alter his process. Bad habit of forcing throws in small windows. Lower-than-ideal release point with an almost side-arm motion.

 

Needs to get his feet under control on a consistent basis and regularly step into his throws. Must continue and develop his pocket awareness and internal clock to feel pressure. Holds the ball too long at times and will take unnecessary hits.

 

Experience is in a FCS spread, shotgun attack; needs to become more acclimated with under-center snaps.

 

COMPARES TO: Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys - The comparison goes beyond coming from the same college program. Both lack elite physical skills, but are productive due to their timing, smarts and quick release to get the ball out.

These are exactly the type of guys you draft every year, to see what pans out.  But, you do it in later rounds.

Sure we need another career back up to go along with the other 57 we've had on the team.

Little Johnny Jets Fan: "Oh look ma, the third round is coming and the Jets are up soon."

Ma: "Hi 5 Lil' Johnny...Garoppolo is still on the board, **** yeah!"

LJJF: "Oh momma, I've been waiting all my life for the Jets to finally steal a QB in the draft."

Ma: "**** yeah Johnny, STFU... here comes the pick."

 

"...The New York Jets select, Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Easter Illinois" 

 

LJJF: "Holy sh*t momma, this is like, the best day of my life."

Ma: "Simmer down kid, the can't **** this one up, let him sit for a year while Geno sh*ts the bed. Then BOOM, 2015 is Garoppolo time!!!"

LJJF: "Hellz yeah momma." 

Ma: "**** yeah Lil' Johnny."

casual fans bash this guy for being unknown

 

just wait until after Senior Bowl week. 

 

he has a Marino-like release. Super friggin fast. 

 

used to think he'd be a nice value play in rd 3

 

the way things are going... he's got a real shot to be the 4th QB after Johnny/Teddy/Bortles i.e. late first round pick.

Always QB needy teams out there and they go higher than a lot of people expect. Agree on him rising fast. Who knows how high his stock is going to get after senior bowl, but there is going to be some team that misses out on the QB frenzy at the top and takes him  We're in a weird position with QB though, does Idzik spend a high draft pick on QB? I don't know if he does for someone like Jimmy. The price might be too high for him.

 

I can't quite tell if Idzik is bucking the trend on what the general perception is for expectations as to what he's going to do, or if he's just a yes-man for Woody. Part of me is scared that they're going to make a big move to go up for Manziel.

Hardcore fans haven't watched him play. We're his games even televised?

You're intrigued. Just admit it.  

 

Bridgewater in the first or Garoppolo some point after > anything else with QBs this draft.
