Longshots Dominate 2024 NFL Draft

Certainly, coach Jason Brown of “Last Chance U” fame was not impressed with the NFL Draft. And he has a lot of good football reasoning for his beliefs. Michael Penix went eighth overall by Atlanta. And the Falcons may live to regret taking what Brown called an older injury-prone quarterback who is a lefty. Brown added that there is no way you take a lefty anywhere towards the top. Cause by, with the exceptions of famed legendary Hall of Fame lefties Steve Young and Ken Stabler, Most of them have been busts.

Additionally, Brown detailed the reasons why it is difficult for left-handed quarterbacks and their teams to succeed. First, the ball spin is different from what receivers are used to with right-handed quarterbacks, which makes catches difficult. Also, there is the issue of the traditionally all-important and expensive left tackle position and the challenge of converting to the right side.

Football is a right-hand-dominant sport. With a left-handed quarterback, play calling has to be the opposite of what it is for a right-handed quarterback. Hence, throwing everyone off what they are used to. These challenges are particularly pronounced in misdirection, counter, influence, and reverse plays.

Equally important and stupid in the eyes of Brown was the Chicago Bears trading Justin Fields. Especially after only three seasons and taking the controversial Caleb Williams first overall. Coach JB said that the decisions were based on Chicago general manager Ryan Poles’s desire to preserve three more years of job security. Brown said it was foolish to trade a QB with three years of “live ammo” experience. Additionally, he said it was wrong to pick a raw rookie to start the rebuilding process over with the same team. Brown would have kept Fields.

The Denver Broncos and humiliated general manager George Paton gave up on their Russell Wilson experiment. Following the mortgage of their future to acquire him for the 2022 season. Wilson was celebrated as an NFL futures betting odds savior upon his arrival. However, it turned out to be one of the biggest flops in NFL history.

Head coach Sean Payton is a reputed QB guru. Thus, he is excited about the possibilities that first-round draft pick Bo Nix of Oregon offers. Already, comparisons are being made between Nix and Payton’s record-setting QB Drew Brees.
