    To provide a quick response to your claim that all he does is throw screen passes? Tell you what I'll hit you up next week after I watch every game tape, would that make you happy?

    Sure. We can compare our findings. It'll be a solid reference moving forward on him. I'll have counts so come prepared.

    Bro I started going through his games as soon as I said that.

    Please. You know I'm in every draft thread every year. We've had extended talks about prospects every year. Or you forget?

    I really don't understand how 40 minutes of time watching youtube videos makes a sound judgment on a Quarterback so much goes into it.

    How efficient is he on 3rd down throws?
    Redzone?
    How does he play after he's fumble/int on the next series?
    Tell me how he handles himself in high profile games?

    Of course it does. But you can figure out a lot of his game during that time. What he likes. Favorite reads. Problem areas. Issues with feet/eyes/arms. Any positives that come up.

    Or you can just guess. I mean that's what pro scouts do right?

    Seriously if the guy comes of the tape then it's worth going deep into. If there is raw moments through out it's worth finding an idea of his ceiling.

    Don't run away from the aspect of watching the guy play cuz "it doesn't show you everything" - there is no science to this. It's watch and decide. Take notes and review. Decide what his strengths are. Be diligent. Read the war room. Very interesting look on how belichick built his scouting system and grades.

    I'm not standing on a soap box and screaming to the world I've hit every prospect I've scouted. I've missed. And I've been honest with who I missed on. That's part of it. Evolving the view trying to land a higher percentage of hits.

    No doubt you can tell all that information, but in 40 mins come on. You also have to see strides that each prospect makes from year to year. For all we know all the issues you believe he has ( First to admit I haven't watch him play and never said I advocated taking him to make a judgement) but next year all those flaws could be non-existent.

    But I don't mind disagreeing with others reports or thoughts either. I don't come in here to agree with everyone. I come to learn, get an alternate view. I ask everyone what they see, why they think -to compare to my own.

    Hundley really needs the extra year to hone his craft. While he probably would have been my pick behind Bridgewater, it is a good choice by him.

    Plus, UCLA is going to be pretty good next year.
