I focused on QB. They are just throwing some drills and light 7 on 7, so maybe not much insight. Nevertheless I have a few observations:
Kline looks physically comparable to the other 5. There doesn't appear to be any physical maturity needed to contribute. He frankly throws the ball better now I thought than the others. Very strong on out routes and deep balls. throws over the middle great. No INTs that i saw in a few days of watching. Arroyo is really spending time with him on the footwork for plays etc. With that said, it seems ZM and AB get collectively about 70% of the 7 on 7 throws and the other 3 get a combined 30%. So he isn't getting the reps yet
I thought Boehm looks better than the others physically. And throws well too. I liked him better from what I watched than AB. But that is just my opinion from a limited sampling. He seems a really nice looking athlete that should be on the field somewhere.
ZM throws inconsistently, even just in a light 7 on workout. But I see why coaches can like him - he is very athletic and that shows. The question remains whether he is an athlete with an effective position. Football is an odd sport and the athlete has to fit the position. Especially at QB. I think dual threat QBs only excel when there is chaos on the field. And you don't win in chaos. You win with a well designed and executed game plan. So the fact that a QB runs well is of very little help - it's very low on the list of required attributes. Again, just my opinion.
One thing struck me when watching. Tedford has a political hand grenade on his hands when setting the depth chart. If he at any time puts Kline or boehm above 4th/5th then he will see transfers. Particularly of hinder and Boehm (if kline jumps him). Both of whom were highly recruited and could maybe play at other programs if not happening here. And AB could still transfer and play at D2 for 2 years if anyone passes him . So he will keep Kline buried until he is 100% sure he is the future. I wouldn't expect to see him on that depth chart higher than last until summer -and certainly not after spring. Kline will be lucky to get snaps in a spring game in my opinion. But tedford may be the kind of guy to give these kids time and a chance to transfer if that is the way it will go. I justnthink its hard to keep 5 scholarship qbs on the roster and happy. We will see.
anyone see anything different?
