    SB IV was going to get drafted in the 5th round. Sean McVay and Zach Robinson wanted to make sure that they got him so they took him in the 4th. That means that a number of people in the NFL thought that he could play.

    Also, the gap between the 4th round and 5th round is huge. It is the line between "expected to stay in the NFL through their rookie contract" and "wouldn't be a shock if they are out of the league in 2 years." So McVay and Robinson really do believe that SB IV can help them. Both are also former QB coaches. So while a lot of UGA fans wanted SB IV to follow Monken to Baltimore, that scheme is built around Lamar Jackson and they have an ideal backup for Jackson in Tyler Huntley. (Where SB IV ran a 4.67 40 yard dash, Huntley ran a 4.54. Huntley is also 6'1" 210 lbs and can throw a spiral 50 yards downfield. And he made the Pro Bowl last year as an alternate. Best part: Huntley has 3 years NFL experience and is still younger than Bennett. So ... yeah.) But the Rams are actually the ideal situation. Especially if they fix their offensive line, which would not only help SB IV in the future but Matthew Stafford - 35 years old and took a beating in Detroit for over a decade - in the present.

    Eveyone gets impressed with the big arms of QB's. How far can they throw it on a line and so forth. Some of the best QB's whoever played couldn't throw it 40 yards on a line. But I seem to remember reading about Johnny Unitas practicing throwing footballs through an old tire swing over and over again. Accuracy and the the giftedness to be able to lead receivers is what it's all about. Go look at any great QB's stats and you will see that the average completion will be less than 10 yards per completion. Very few pass plays in the NFL go for 50 yards.

    I believe Stetson has the tools, but between his ears is a problem. It's not that he isn't smart, he is, it's just that he has ALWAYS struggled trying to do too much. There's s fine line when pushing the boundaries of a good decision. You want someone like that, especially when you need to win. But once over the line, then it becomes like quicksand, one bad play upon another. If someone like that can figure out the line, and play with consistency, he can be a super winner. I think he figured it out with Todd Monken. Will the NFl give him time?
