No argument from me on that front.NFL teams have proven, they are willing to draft “raw” quarterbacks.
Quarterback is the position, most teams, will still draft even if the player is graded as “not enough starts” or “raw” as in how you described and they will draft them first round.
Unless, their mechanics or arm cannot throw the ball well, they will not be drafted in the first round.
Anthony Richardson, was considered raw and only had a handful of starts but his arm talent was enough to make the Colts draft him very early. And who knows, if he slipped to Seattle, maybe Seattle, would have drafted him too.
Quarterbacks, even, raw, and limited starts, can be so intriguing to teams that they will draft them first round. We’ve seen it enough to know. Even Lamar Jackson, was considered, a “raw” QB, and he was taken without hesitation by the Ravens.
The upside is too great with quarterbacks for a lot of teams to pass up on and that is why a “still developing” quarterback gets drafted first round.
Just look at Trey Lance.
The issue is that there is a significant gap between the top 2 guys & the rest of the group at the moment.
None of those names that I listed have separated themselves as the clear #3 guy. Sanders could end up being that guy. But it's still early & the sample size is small.
Ewers & Nix both have struggled with consistency. While Penix has the durability & only one year of production label. Simply put, there are more questions than answers with each one.
