We need to talk about something that Jake thinks is overblown in evaluations of QBs for the NFL Draft

-What could that possibly be? ARM STRENGTH. Everyone always talks about how important arm strength is when evaluating a QB. Look at past drafts. Everyone loved Josh Allen’s arm strength at Wyoming. But he had so much more to prove. And he hasn’t been very accurate as a pro. He’ll always have ‘a high ceiling’ because he has great arm strength. But you don’t just become accurate all of a sudden

-This brings us to Justin Herbert, who people rave about because of ARM STRENGTH. He wasn’t the most accurate player in college, but people love how far he can throw it. How often do you throw the ball 60 yards downfield? And what does it matter if you aren’t accurate? It’s all about the 10-20 yard throws.
