08.Dec.2015 Better Seth Collins Comparison
I’ve heard Chuckie Keaton and Marcus Mariota. Both obviously much better passers and overall QBs.
I was thinking about my Jets today and thought of Brad Smith, the QB from Missouri, wondering where he went.
Here are his numbers.
To me, very similar to Collins. Smith was once a pre-season Heisman candidate in the mid 2000s, which is what I and others have said about Collins — that if he can complete intermediate passes he’d probably be a Heisman candidate one day. That’s a Captain Obvious prediction considering how he runs. But as I have said many times at this point, I don’t think he’ll ever pass well enough [to even reach a Brad Smith level]. Smith was a better runner and decision maker than Collins as well.
But I think that’s the best compassion with any player I’ve ever seen, so I thought I’d through it out there as food for thought. Of course, Brad only threw 10 passes in the NFL and the Jets drafted him in the 4th round as a WR and KR. He was pretty dynamic and good as “playmaker” for the Jets.
I think GA has the perfect idea (mine) of letting Collins play QB and run (occasional pass) inside the 10 and outside the 10 he’s a WR/playmaker.
