Yes definitely. For some reason, despite some fairly mediocre play last year, he suddenly became a first round lock. This is a guy who had one full year as a starting quarterback, playing on a good Texas A&M roster and one of the best lines in CFB. He wouldn't be able to beat Alabama like the current QB at A&M. And yet he's drafted #8 overall and starting in week one in the NFL.
I guess it's another example of teams over rating size, speed at the QB position. He wasn't a poised, accurate passer. He flashed hot and cold, but had serious mechanical issues. For me he should've been a second round pick, benched for a year or two as you say Peaches and then brought along slowly. Plus, he has the upside of being a WR/TE option on some plays. But throwing him in like this, with a bad supporting cast, I don't get it. And he better hope Mike Sherman sticks around as offensive coordinator.
